There's much to like about a processor that hits a 50% overclock with almost default voltage and goes that bit higher with a touch more VCore, especially when it only costs £100 or so in the first place. Overclocked using decent components that included a PIB Athlon 64 FX-55 cooler, our off-the-shelf sample managed a very respectable 2.8GHz with utter stability, allowing it to outgun a default clocked FX-55 in all of our tests. There's no obvious reason why you, the reader, can't emulate the results posted here, and it adds a whole new dimension to the performance-per-pound equation.
