Default Athlon Dual Core: Overclocking the 4200+

Now that the Dual-Core AMD processors are starting to appear in the market, we have received many emails asking which X2 is the best value. With prices so high that is a very fair question. To shed some light on the answer we decided to take the X2 entry level $500 4200+ to the limit on our DFI nForce4 platform to see what we could really achieve with basic air cooling of the 4200+.

Another argument for Dual-Dore.

However, all Dual-cores are over-priced, buying one would kill my budget.

At $579 it is 1/3 of the PC's entire cost, for most people.

1270 CHF ?

Are they worth it?

I'm not that much of an audiophile.

But if the cables are 1270, the whole system is costing as mcuh as a middle class car.
