I would just stay with what u have got, any benefit you would get wouldn't be worth the cost for the D0.

Unless you got a really good price for your c0 i wouldnt bother as your only going to get a few hundred more mhz for your money.
There is always the chance too that you get a bad clocking d0.

What vcore are you using outta interest?

There's always a chance you'll get a bad D0 that can barely do 4Ghz so I wouldn't risk it.

This is very true, I have seen a few people online who have sold their C0's on and bought a D0 to find that it is worse than what their C0 was.

4.2GHz is a nice o/c for C0, I spent about 4 days trying to get a stable 4.2GHz o.c with my D0, also my last D0 was unable to clock higher than 3.8GHz.

I would stick with what you have mate, just incase you get a lemon..

The advice here is spot on. There's no point spending money on a D0 processor when there's the very real possibility that it will perform worse. Even if it did perform better the cost and hassle involved would nullify the small performance increase.

4.2ghz is a good clock. If its stable and temps are controlled then you should not even consider it. Its going to handle anything you can throw at it with them clock speeds anyway. Enjoy the cpu.
