Highest Clock Speed?

What is the highest speed you have clocked your processor at? Was it successful, and what heat did it get to?

I've got an AMD Athlon clocked at a standard 3GHz. I've managed to get it to 4.2GHz, but the processor got hot quickly. I managed to get the processor clocked stable at 4GHz with the standard heatsync.

Got mah 4170 running at about 4.5 on air, tho I think I can get it higher when I can be bothered to OC properly rather than letting the mobo do it

Re: Highest Clock Speed?

Well i remember overclocking my Core 2 Duo processor in my Desktop PC with around 3.0ghz from 2.4ghz(stock frequency)didn't try to overdo it to do it on a safer side .
Have used the configuration for over 2 years,until in finally stopped using it after i bought the laptop.

That's a nice speed. What was the original speed? I had a look on the internet and found 4.2GHz, that's pretty high for a non-overclocked processor. Is that the recommended overclocking speed?

Re: Highest Clock Speed?

I've had a Phenom II X6 at 4.8GHz (I think, this was a while ago). Running. But it got quite hot so I reverted it back.
