Lightbulb Expected Speeds on 3700+

Alright working on my first build and was just wondering what kind of speeds i could expect by overclocking.

Here's my comp. specs:
CPU: AMD 3700 San Diego
Mobo: DFI Ultra-D
RAM: OCZ 3200 Platinum Rev.2
Graphics: Leadtek 6800GS
PSU: OCZ Powerstream 520W
HD: WD Caviar 250GB

Also i'd like to know what i could get with Stock Cooling and Non-Stock.

on stock cooling ive gotten my 3700+ sandy up to 2.8ghz on 5.25v @ 55ÂșC at full load on a motherboard not designed for major overclocking. you'll probably get better results with your mobo and PSU.


Intel E8400 @ 3.78ghz
8gb (4x2gb) G.SKILL DDR2 1600 @ 420mhz, 5-5-5-12
ASrock P43Twins1600 (hates RAM dividers)
WD Caviar 500gb + 250gb hdd, 32mb cache
eVGA 7900gs @ 585/1700mhz
OCZ GameXStream 600w PSU
Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum
Cooler Master Centurion 5 case

My old 3700+ only did 2.7GHz, at 1.6v with an aftermarket cooler. I would get an opteron 146 or 148, or better yet, wait for the new CPU's from intel.

so, umm, err yeah
