Default Athlon X2 5800+, How Far Can You Push It?

Im not sure if anyone has it, but I havent found anybody overclocking it by doing a quick google search. I plan on buying one soon, paired with arctic cooling. I hope to atleast pull 3.2ghz out of it?? Does anyone know how far it can be pushed on air??

AMD Phenom II 960t BE @ 4.3ghz // Corsair Vengence 4x2Gb 1600mhz
EVGA GTX 460 @ 840mhz Core 1960mhz Memory// ASRock 970 Extreme AM3+
NZXT M59 Case Black and Blue Scheme // Corsair H80

I would get the new 5400+ Black Edition. - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops

The 5000+ Black Edition seem to hit ~3.2ghz so the 5400+ Black Edition should at least do that.


AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition : Asus M4A89GTD PRO : Corsair 550VX
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4x2gb DDR3 1600 : MSI Geforce GTX 770 2gb : Antec 300
OCZ Agility 2 60gb SSD (OS) : SanDisk Ultra 120gb SSD (Apps) : Crucial M500 240gb (Steam) : Win 8.1 Pro 64bit
2x Samsung 2494LW & 1x Dell U2312HM Eyefinity

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 : Core i5 2410M : 12.5" 1366x768 IPS LED display : Intel 320 Series 120gb SSD

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 stock 4.3 : Nexus 7 2 stock 4.4

as long as you dont get burned like the folks that thought the 6400BE was gonna have an unlocked multi because of the black box.
im sure this one will be though, and it really should have little to no trouble doing 3.2
