Default overclocking AMD 5200+

hey fellas,
just wondering how high i could overclock my AMD Athlon X2 5200+ 2.6Ghz and what temps i should expect for it. I have a fun on the heatsink and 1 fan in the case.

Cheers

Get a good temp monitoring program like everest, and a good CPU stress tester like prime95

follow the overclocking guide on this site, and work slowly dont make big jumps... And do this over weeks, for the most solid/stable overclock.


I have a 5200+ and many people can bring these to the 3.0 GHZ area without issues , each processor is unique though!
