Yep the Fx series have an unlocked multiplier which makes overclocking it very easy.

That's the whole point of the FX series in my opinion, for those world record overclocks...

The FX series are there for ocing, they have the unlocked multiplier which is their advantage. Although not exactly practical, but yes its there.

do not expect them to overclock the same percentage as other CPUs though

like just because athlon and opteron owners get say 50% does not mean your FX-60 will get to 4ghz

actually the opterons and FX-60s tend to reach about hte same levels
