Default 6000+ overclocking results

Hey I've got a sample AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ here and I just wanted to give you guys some idea what you can get out of them on water cooling. 3.3GHz was dead easy on high end water cooling (APOGEE GT with Thermochill radiator) and I seem to have topped out at about 3.35GHz. At that point it doesn't seem to matter how much voltage I give it. Temps don't appear to be an issue. They don't go over 45C under load even at those settings and almost the max voltage this board can provide. It seems that's about all that K8 was good for. It had a good run :)

Test setup

M2N32-SLI Deluxe
cheap DDR2 memory running a ridiculously low divider so as to remove it as a bottleneck
XFX Geforce 6200TC
600W modular Silent Green PSU
Maxtor 120GB SATA
MCP350 w/ Alphacool reservoir top
Thermochill PA120.2 w/ SilenX fans
Clearflex 1/2" tubing
