does anyone think it would be possible to overclock the FX-55 to 3ghz?

it'd probably be really hard... seeing that even 90nm chips cant break 2.7ghz (on air, of course).

maybe a snap of the fingers and a raise of the multipliers? :wink:

well think of it in percentages. from 2.6 to 3 is an addition of 400Mhz so thats about 15-20%. i'd say its doable as long as you have quality components and cooling, which if you afford a FX-55 you must. give it a try and let us know.

what speed of RAM do you think would be needed?

i used to overclock k6-2's 20-25 percent using air cooling, but of course those things ran a lot cooler. Most likely the only thing stopping you is heat buildup. Also, you need overclocking memory, stuff thats faster then pc 3200, maybe 4200, because youl have to overclock the FSB and the memory is the main thing that will take the punishment(beside the cpu). You will also need some extreme cooling, im not talking just water cooling, thats not enough. More like a peltier /watercooling combo(where the peltier sits directly on a cold plate which sits directly on the die. The water cooling is used to disipate the heat generated by the peltier's hot side. People get sub-zero temps with that setup. You have to watch out for condensation and ice though(radiator required)) or you can consider using phasechange.

To get optimal performance? I'd assume the faster the better, since hypertransport runs at 1ghz nowadays, right? Though low latencies are highly recomended as well.

I like the sound of that!!! Beating the Competition...GO AMD!!! :P

That's gonna be like a $1,000 CPU!!! The FX-53 is at $800, isn't it? :?

Likely it will just replace the current FX-55's price tag. Remember they don't have more than one FX proc in production at once.

It's been done with plain old watercooling, here are his bench results:

yea i dont think too many people find maintaining a liquid nitrogen cooling system every week a viable option when then can knock down jsut clock just a bit and have a much easier less risky setup. the whole liquid nitrogen overclock is just to see how far a core can be pushed
