Yes, every processor can be overclocked, but be very careful when overclocking processors. The increased heat can damage a processor and shorten it's life significantly. Ensure your processor does not get too hot during the oveclocking procedure. All overclocking should be done in small increments. The X3 8600 can be oveclocked to close to 2.7GHz safely with air cooling.
The best overclock is always through the motherboard. Depending on your BIOS you can raise the Front Side Bus (in small increments) in order to bump up the total frequency. If you have an unclocked processor, you can try to raise the multiplier. After every increase, you should stress test your computer using PRIME 95. If your computer locks up, drop down the clock speed and leave it there. Your computer should always be stable. You may have to raise the voltage of your processor to get to where you want. If you give the model of your motherboard, I can give you more detailed instructions.
Make sure you have CPU-Z (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html). - this will show you all the details of your processor. If you would like some more detail, check out this link:http://www.wikihow.com/Overclock-a-PC and feel free to message me. If you didn't understand some of the things in this post, I'd recommend not overclocking your PC - it can be dangerous and ruin your computer if you don't know what you are doing. Alex

    Not all motherboards, nor Processors will allow overclocking Alex. The above, yes.

    I didn't say all motherboards allow an overclock.
    I've never heard of a CPU that can't be overclocked - which one(s) can't?

Sound driver core


CPUs do not have drivers. They do not contain LAN, Audio, or Video components. These are part of the motherboard they are installed upon. You need to provide the
motherboard manufacturer, model number, and revision number, along with the specific Operating System you are running. We can then help you find the driver(s) you need.

Power shut down shortly after bios loads


Check the processor and heatsink/fan. If there is a bad contact between the heatsink and the processor, or the fan fails to turn the BIOS will shut the system down to protect the CPU from overheating. I hope this helps.

I want to install win xp on VPCEE29FX/BI


Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit CPU Type: AMD Phenom II Triple-Core P820 1.8G Why would you want to "downgrade" from the high-performance 64-bit version of Windows 7 to Windows XP?

XP probably won't support the "triple-core" processor, nor the sound-card, nor the video-card, nor the USB ports. This would leave you with a very CRIPPLED computer.

Don't try it!

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?
