    i dont know what info you are using but most 3600 will hit 4200 some will hit 4400,so far ive only got mine up to 4300,that said i at this point i would wait for the 5000 series

    4200 is the normal max boost, its not asking much to expect that for all core when overclocking, but it appears quite a lot of chips cant even do that.
    Golden sample chips only clock just under 5% faster when using very good coolers.
    I'm not seeing anything that makes the 3600 special for gaming unless you get it for a good price and cant afford better.

    "The 3600 doesnt overclock for squat, it barely reaches rated clocks unless you get a gold sample." were your exact words ,the cpus come at a default of 3.6g, (4.2 boost also known as a factory overclock sorta. an does not require having this magical golden sample,+ the 100 extra i have squeezed out that is defintly not "squat for overclocking) therefor the only part of your statment that i was referring to,that part of your statment would be incorrect that is all.

    I shortened what I wanted to say initially and qualified it later.
    Interpret it how you like.

    It would be a massive upgrade but I would wait.

    For motherboard it depends on your budget but I 100% recommend the Gigabyte b550 aorus elite you can find it for USD $170 and it supports overclock, don't mind what people say you can get 4.4~4.5ghz with these chips.

    Thanks if you like to 1.45v or 1.5v for that 4.4 or 4.5 sure you can have that, i'm talking about 4.4/4.5 stable good voltage not that.

    You need to decide on how many memory lanes you want for M.2 devices. B550 only does Gen4x4 from the 1st M.2 slot. X570 will do it to two.

    No it's mostly a sidegrade, the 3600 is better, but definitively not way better than the 2600... Also the 5600 is announced at +50/60 Euro more than the 3600 and it really seem to bring some more.

    1.4+ is not recommended, but for games only you can get a stable overclock at low voltages, there is no need to push it for prime or cinebench for gaming, the workload is not the same.
