In Praise off AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition

I finally got up the nerve after 6 months to overclock this baby. And I'm glad I did. All I had to do was crank the multiplier up to 15 and I went to a stable 3.1ghz from 2.6Ghz without adding more voltage. Assassins Creed and Crysis both ran smooth as silk. Not a bad jump and the temps stayed the same using an Arctic Cooling 64 Pro. Great CPU for $70 when I bought it.
So AMD guys if you have a AM2 or AM2+ board find a X2 5000+ Black Edition if you can. Or get the 5400+ Black for $66. The 5000+ Black Edition in my eyes, is the best dual core CPU for overclocking ever made.
