what he said is true though, even if it is the same model cpu it doesn't mean they will all perform the same.

but sometimes it's more than just hardware related. Sean, i hope you don't take this as a douche comment, but just because you couldn't clock higher it doesn't mean the chances of someone else doing it are low. an example; where you could just get to 3.8, Apok was able to hit 4.4 using the same cpu and motherboard. having the know-how is just something else you have to account for even if you have the parts.

I respect you Muffin Man and i didn't take offense to that. you are 100% right, just because i couldn't doesn't mean it cant be done... but i can link you to probably at least 20 threads ( form different forums ) where someone said they cant get their 965 over 3.8ghz. and for the record, i never said anything close to " if i cant do it, it cant be done ". i have booted at 4ghz with mine, its possible, but it wasn't even in the realm of being stable.

i was simply telling him my experiences and he basically called me a moron and disregarded what i had said.

to each his own i guess :/

I have to say that reading this thread reminds me of the kind of bickering you see in a Jr. High Locker room.

Everyone just needs to chill out.

Sean don't get so butthurt about this, and to the op, don't be so defensive. You did ask for help and Sean took the time to say getting over 3.8ghz is recognized as being a pretty uncommon thing.

Lol'd ^ I personally would stay at 3.8ghz and get a better cooler anyway, It's only a 200mhz difference, It'd be cool to say u hit 4ghz for bragging rights but, is it worth shortening the life dramatically and all the stability issues you may hit?

It has been categorically proven that even bleeding edge overclocks do not drastically reduce the lifespan of a computer processor to the point where it becomes an issue. A stock CPU is designed with a 15-20 year effective lifespan, and even if the overclocking halves that, the working lifespan of the cpu will very rarely reach that point.

I may have to overclock my Athlon 6000 from 3ghz to whatever it'll go then :] I heard it shortens the lifespan of the motherboard though, is that true? or does it depend on voltages.

Never heard of it shortening the lifespan of a motherboard before. The thing is, all these computer components were designed with very long working lifespans and we generally never keep them for that long so any decrease in lifespan isn't really noticed.
