    Just a suggestion, how about replacing Greenberet's HOW TO: Overclocking Athlon64 guide which doesn't exist anymore with eva2000's one here --> http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=327
    I found it extremely useful and I'm sure others would too but some probably don't know about it because it isn't on the first page of this sticky :thumbup:

    EDIT: spelling

    Is anyone going to be doing/found an article regarding OCing X2/AM2 processors? :)

    Heres a few rather brief ones specifically for AM2:

    - DriverHeaven's AM2 OC Guide
    - Tom's Hardware OC Guide Pt 2

    You may also want to google some AM2 user's overclocking reports/adventures, as they can also provide some more information.

    Theres not many guides specifically for AM2, because basically, the principle in overclocking them is pretty much the same as previous A64 sockets (939/754) with the main differences/exceptions being only in the memory speed and timings. If you refer to a number of overclocking guides within the FAQ in my signature, you will see that some explain memory timings and how they effect the overclocking and performance of the system (i4memory's one in particular). With the combined knowledge of both the 939/754 & AM2 guides provide and you spending sometime playing around, I am sure in no time you will have a decent overclock on your system :thumbup:

    ==========================================
    Architecture (Upper end)
    Bulldozer => Piledriver => Steamroller

    Zambezi => Komodo => ???

    Mainstream Market (A- and E2-series APUs)
    Llano (modified K10.5) => Trinity => Kaveri

    Side note:

    * The above codenames are based on leaked or official slides created by AMD. (Leaked slides are from AMD presentations where the audience agrees to a Non-Disclosure Agreement). All other rumours and third-party created charts are ignored or taken with a grain of salt.

    * You can see AMD aligning themselves to Intel's Tick-Tock release model.
    ie: Tock (2011) => Tick (2012) => Tock (2013)

    Tock = New architecture
    Tick = Refinement of existing architecture.
