    Can you show us that it is actually a 925? Or is that all NDA and stuff?

    If I am correct the top left and bottom right spots where there are no pins is showing us that. A 920 or 940 would have 3 missing pins there where as the 925 and 945 only have 2. but I could be wrong.

    you are correct however the 940 has 940 pins while the 945/925 has 938, thus the 940/920 wont work on am3 boards. the top of the cpu does not say 925 at all, nor does it say phenom II. it says "AMD ES" all over it. :cool: the big copper thing is just that, a huge solid round of copper that is going to be machined into a ln2/dice pot.

    Definitely subscribing to this.

    Trying to work out whether to grab a 940 now, or wait for the AM3 chips.

    Oh, and first dibs if you ever sell it ;)

    I couldn't ever see a 920 or 925 matching a 940, just because the locked multi. That is if you mean the world record, 6.3Ghz with no multi change would be extremely difficult me thinks.

    So pretty much just a 945 then, as far as specs go they are the same. Just hopefully you got a good chip and not one that failed a test the 945's would have passed so it got binned lower. Sounds like fun though.

    now lets see who gets higher my 945ES on simple water and a 780a or your 925ES on 790FX+whatever crazy cooling you got up your sleeve

    My bets on the crazy cooling, I can't see the PII getting past 4.5ghz without more than water.
