    Do all the same X56xx overclock the same? Are they essentially the same once clocked?

    Pretty much. Some do clock better than others. I've got one that won't clock at all.

    I've got a X5650 which used to always run at 4.2, but have had to turn it down to 4ghz for stability.

    Your better of playi g lottery with 5 x x5650 at £10 each rather than buy 1 x x5690 for £60-£70. The

    The x5690 is not worth 6x more for extra 200mhz possible oc.
