    Certainly I get almost the same temperatures overclocking the phemon II with stock cooler, as the phenom with a liquid cooler unoverclocked xD

    yah they have lol... i remember when an AMD setup would have been the Phenom/ FX74 and the 2900XT :D... talk about H A W T.

    when we complain now about heat and power its nothing compared to what we used to have.

    Its like people who lived through the cold war being afraid of terrorists... Nuclear annihilation...or guy with a sock full of explosives.
