na that was per W1zzard something to do with the way it calculates it's speed like the 9600 read this part of the review http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/P...TX_280/26.html
l. My old 4870 would do 125. I suppose if you adjust for the difference you could do it and I'm not near as smart as wizzard so i'm not sure what the heck it all means.
Okay this is rare for me, but I was wrong I can set mine a 105 and all is okay. OOps hold the phone now I lost fan control so nope doesn't work right. Oh well back to 100 pcie and Tatty I order 780I FTW edition they made that motherboard to fix all the problems the 790 was having and added solid capacitors etc so it's better than a regular 780. I'm gonna SLI baby. It does 550 FSB not as high as the 790I but plenty for me, and it will use my current DDR2. Here it is. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=780I%2bftw
