Default Amd 3400 754

Alright, I have an AMD 3400 754 version, yeah for some reason not many people have the 3400. Anyhow, the stock speed is 2.4ghz. I'm thinking about buying a zalman, and OC'ing this biiiznick..Just wondering, what kind of mhz should I see? Im aiming for 3, to high? I want to OC right now, but the stock heatsink sucks so bad. Is this processor good to OC? Thanks

Check out my car forum..

what is up vanilla face

I'd say 2.8. But you might get to 3 too, give it a try and see for yourself.

Isn't the 754-pin 3400 130nm? That thing will probably run hot then. My best guess would be that it's not the best overclocking processor. If your temperatures remain in a good range, I'd say probably a very maximum of 3GHz. But unless you have high-end cooling, I highly doubt you could make it there without overheating. I'd say to expect in the 2.6-2.7 range. If you've got the money for a Zalman, I'd say it's a worthy investment for a gain of 0.2 - 0.3GHz with the possibility of more. But once again, I don't want to be spending anyone else's money on here, so it's up to you.

BTW, what are your load temperatures now with the stock heatsink?
ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

its a crapping ocing processor. Don't bother haha. Well, you might be lucky with a New Castle. The difference between a New Castle and a Clawhammer is that New Castles have 512KB cache while the Clawhammers have 1MB. New Castles are good clockers. Don't get a zalman. I had one to oc my Clawhammer 3400+ and lets say i didnt get very far. Get yourself a Scythe Ninja or some tower heatsink with heatpipes. That'll get you pretty far.
