My Athlon II x4 wasn't even stable @ 3.6GHz. I kept it at 3.52GHz and everything is good. I heard you can overclock an Athlon II x4 to 3.3GHz without increasing the voltage.

Well hello there, so today I was wondering in a random thought, how far can an Athlon 240 processor be safely and realistically pushed? I've been able to clock it to 3.92ghz, but I need new thermal paste since it crashed in prime95 after a few minutes since it was running a tad hot. So that...
