ok i got a sempron 2400 and i overclocked it to a 2800 seems to work alright Just wondering how far a sempron 3000 overclocks its about 185 canadian at my retailer. I am guessing OC from a 2.0 to a 2.4 ghz? if i change 166 fsb to 200? like it did with Sempron 2400(it went from 1.6 to 2) And i have to remember that Sempron 3000 has a 512 L2 cache ! thats the reason i am thinking of getting it.
anyone else have a sempron 3000? just wondering how people like it? and overclockability...
IMO - it is not worth the $$$. Right now you are at 2.0 GHz, which is plenty fast. Going from there to 2.4 GHz would be minimal for performance. The price just doesn't justify the amount of performance increase you will see - even with the extra cache.
