:shock: Everything working very stable up to 3.9ghz for a cpu that is known for terrible OC potential. Tried to squeeze @4ghz while lowering ram fq even lower but no success. Keeping on 3.85 because any higher causes fsb multiplier to jump around too much. Never seen anyone breaking more than 3.8 with this cpu on air cooling .

Yeah , my board is terrible and only 2 slots for ddr2 ram. Just ordered some ,,dinosaur" ddr2 800 2x 4gb sticks for my last upgrade for this ancient pc . 8gb ram is the most this board supports so i will collect some money for building a new rig based on AM4 later on . For now im really happy with the performance booost i got when i brought Gtx 1050 , new cpu cooler and oced the cpu as far as i can . This case and mb originally holded sempron 3000+ , 512mb ram, geforce 6200le card and 120gb hdd :D couldnt run cod 4 with more than 30fps on lowest possible settings on 760p , while now im getting 50fps+ , V.High preset when playing Witcher 3 on 1080p

Probably because the GPU, not the CPU is the limiting factor.
