    Which AMD 5.2 GHz processor do you have?

    There are no 5.2gig AMD processors [at least no stock speed ones] If you want help, you need to post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact pw supply, exact cpu, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.
