3800 V FX-53

I read the recent review by PCFormat and it said that the 3800 matches the FX-53 for performance and the only difference is that the FX-53's multiplier is unlocked.

At this point you would opt for the 3800, but I want to o/c. How overclockable is the FX-53?

Even if the FX-53 is o/c would there be anoticeable difference?

I don't one to shell out the extra 2-3 hundred pounds for it to be not worth it

If you really want to spend 300 on a processor because it can overclock a bit higher, wouldnt it be a better idea to spend that money on a peltier cooling kit or something, so you can reuse it with your next cpu? I doubt the difference betweent the 2 are even noticeable
