Just look at the review I posted above, Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz (E6550) outperformed AMD 2.8GHz (5600+).

I'm not sure if there is overclocking articles for FX-74 but there is power consumption article for FX-74

Click here to see the article

FX-74 consume too much power

And since they consume too much power, I think they are not good for overclocking
very good Maroon... i agree thoroughly......
