We overclock a golden oldie, the Athlon 3000+ was a favorite among hardware enthusiasts back in May 2005, now-a-days it´s Core 2 Duo, but with the help of some Dry Ice we can extract a bit more power from this AMD CPU. Read on to find out if we reach our 100% overclocking goal.

With the Intel Core 2 Duo ruling the performance charts it seems impossible to get any worthy scores with an AMD Athlon 64 system? Let´s see what a low end 3000+ Venice AMD CPU can pull of once we go for the extreme overclocking levels.

Overclock Gear

Let’s start of with gathering the components for our OC build, with AMD dumping their prices and people upgrading to higher end Intel/AMD systems it becomes quite feasible to build a complete system “on the cheap”.

  • DFI LP NF4 Ultra-D and SLI-D Motherboards
  • 2* 256Mb PC3200 DDR1 Winbond BH-5 Memory Modules
  • Tagan 520W Power Supply
  • 10kg of Dry Ice and Copper Tube for extreme cooling

All this lined and ready for testing on my desk.
