Hi there AMD users, just got a quick question for all

Just ordered a Phenom 9600 processor, and my question is...
CAN it be clocked? This aint the Black edition.. :S Just the regular 9600..

Is it locked or can it still be overclocked?

Many thanks

It should be unlocked. I believe AMD offers a downloadable overclocking utility called Overdrive that is designed to Overclock the Phenoms. I've heard stories of people pushing the 9600 to speeds of 3.0GHz, though they had ridiculous cooling systems(i.e. Liquid Nitrogen, Dried Ice, etc.)

-------------------------
AMD Sempron 2800* | 4 x ATI Radeon HD 3870** | 1600 watt PC Power and Cooling PSU | MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX motherboard | 4GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 1450MHz*** | Asetek VapoChill LightSpeed(AC) Phase-change cooling | Asetek Liq. VGA coolers(4x) | 4 x WD Raptor-X 160GB HDDs RAID-0 | 1TB Hitachi DeskStar HDD

*using sempron for the moment, have a Pheom 9900 pre-ordered
**Overclocked from default (775, 2400(MHz)) to 915 and 2775(MHz)"
***Overclocked from 1300MHz Default
