    Any of you guys oc'd your's? This is an article on overclocking this chip, it seems pretty impressive, and I've been reading similar articles around the net. This is the last paragraph of this article:

    Speaking of overclocking, I can't help but be incredibly impressed by the results we saw here. While reaching 2.8 GHz with an Athlon 64 has been done before, I don't know if the same can be said about not having to increase the voltage or upgrade the cooling. The really hardcore overclockers are surely reading this, licking their lips, with their phase change coolers in one hand, and the other hand on their mouse searching for a Venice CPU to buy. Who could pass up a 40% frequency overclock for basically nothing?!?

    I've never oc'd but that sounds mighty tempting. I know, I know, don't oc unless you know what you're doing, but after reading this I'm considering doing some research and giving it a try. I'm sure I can get plenty of advice from this board and others.

    Oh yeah, I have an ASUS 939 A8N mb, which are supposed to be "oc-friendly".

    Any input appreciated,
    Harold

    This isn't something I think we should walk you through, do your research.
    Just keep in mind, OC little by little, and watch your temps.

    Ok, yeah, that's what I've been reading in some articles. Take it up a notch at a time.

    Thanks,

    Of course the only reason I won't give too much advice is I don't want to help you fry anything, but really OCing is easy, just remember even a little OC shortens the life span and voids warranties.
