Has anybody had experience with overclocking this processor? I just bought it and it will ship Monday or Tuesday. All the info for the computer build is in my tag.

yup i have one and it's a great processor.... you should easily get 3GHz out of it if the CPU is a recent revision.

I'm running 3120mhz (240x13) on Asrock Dual939-Sata2 motherboard, with their AM2 daughterboard installed, with Athlon X2 5600+.

It's my main computer, runs Vista perfectly with 2 gigs DDR2 ram. The responsiveness is excellent, I have no desire(well, little desire) to upgrade to anything faster, not even an overclocked Core2.
