    Stock I'd say ~10k in '06
    OC'd to the max I'd say 13k MAX in '06

    Hope they aren't disappointing, but even Oc'd 2900's in x-fire with a phenom get 13,500 :(

    tha't not to bad. i'll only get 5k with my 939 :laugh: I'm going to try to push it alot on the overclocking. CPU around 3.2Ghz i know it can go up to 3.5Ghz. But the GPU i don't know. I don't overclock GPU that much. I'll take up about 20-40Mhz on core and memory and that's about it. But i'll see what i can do.

    well i got everything yesterday. i got up to 11k in 06. but the motherboard crap out on me. so im RMA it right now. once it comes back i'm going try for 12k. this was all at stock. i couldn't overclock the cpu, mine fan kept falling off. (but still keeping cool lol) the AM2 backet was broke. so hopefully it's just the board. i'm going shoot for x16 on the multiper and see what i get then go for maybe x18. then i'll work on overclock the video cards. i got them up to 750/820 and stock being 600/800. so not to bad. then only sucks about the 290gt is that THEY DO GET HOT!!! By default there only set to run at 31% fan speed. i had the fan speed up to 44%, and you can still barely hear them. now 100% is a different story lol, that's all you can hear.
