I agree completely, that's what I was getting at with the lack of optimism and negative remarks about the processor.

Just not a good potential for overclocking.

I wouldn't count on it if this is any indication of how those CPU's respond to overclocking,

The Pentium G620 also doesn't have Turbo Boost, so the only thing that we can do to really overclock the CPU is to increase the bus frequency. Intel 'Sandy Bridge' processors don't like to have the bus increased much, so overclocking on this processor is going to be rather tough.
and the best I can find here at the moment is a shade of 2700 MHz,

which all things considering wouldn't even be noticeable outside of anything short of the odd benchmark, definitely not enough to warrant the effort of overclocking it.

OK. Im angry now. I bought processor with max. overclock ever is 2826.2 MHz !!!
I know what you want say. That is good processor for office , films and light 3D games.

I don't want to be more borning.
I have only three questions if you want to answer.

1. Is there any good processor for Overclock around 100$ - 120$ with shipping ?
2. Is overclocking hard ?
3. I dont know anything for overclock. Can I learn basics on it ? In this moment 20 MHz is a lot for me. I know a lot about computers. I have talent for it but never do this.

Sorry if I am boring. I'm only curious

lol, Trinty, relax bud. Overclocking costs money. Most of us who overclock, have spent thousands of dollars on our systems. You have to keep in mind, it's not just the CPU you have to look at for overclocking, you have to look at the MotherBoard, cooling, case, memory and Power Supply as well.

I know that. That is expensive hobby. But it's funny experience.
And Im planing to give money on overclocking but later. When I got good
experience and more money. I'm now going to relax.

Thanks for helping. If anyone can answer more , I will not cclose this theard for today.

1. As I already told you, it's not just the CPU that you have to take into consideration when overclocking. And to further answer your question, for the motherboard(socket type) you have, you cannot get an overclockable cpu for that price point.
2. Overclocking is easy, once you have the right tools, money and knowledge.
3. Yes, you can go to www.overclock.net and read all you could possibly ever want to know about overclocking.

Hello SF members.

Note : For just little more I will open this topic again. That is because , I have some questions about all.

After I relaxed and played some sports I backed here with some questions about my computer. I don't want to open new topic. I want to have all on one place.

Today , I downloaded :
1. Latest version of CPU-Z
2. SpeedFan
3. CoreTemp
and Prime95.
After this I made backup and I rebooted computer to BIOS and selected "Load Optimized Defaults". Next was Save and Reboot. I didnt had any problems with starting Windows.

When my Windows loaded, I close some Gaming Apps ( I use it very rarely ) and started Prime95 (with Blend settings) , CoreTemp , SpeedFan and CPU-Z. I wanted to do some tests on my computer.

Ok, I want anyone who know to read this , to look at my results.
Results attached. There is two pictures :
1. Prime95BS - While testing.
2. Prime95AS - After Stop , When I stoped this app.

Questions :
1. Is results good ?
2. Is there anything what I need better like Cooling, PSU or etc. (I already know for processor) ?
3. Is Water Cooling for PC good or there is better ?


That's all (for now) from one curious person , how want to know all about computers and to explore it
Thanks in advance.
Trinty.
