    That dual stage was about 60 degrees colder than my single stage gets.

    Gigabyte sent it to me to review :)

    I'm guessing 4.5ish. My QX9650 does around 4.8 under it :toast:

    you should be able to push a little more assuming that board is better than the crap GB pushed out to begin with for AM2+ :shadedshu

    If you got a 9950BE then just up the multiplier until it gets unstable and raise the voltage. Don't go past 1.5v tho.

    What is a good Phenom II bored. I Kind of want to get a Phenom II but I am not sure what bored to get. They have some pretty sweet combo's on newegg. Are any of those any good?

    The only thing I am worried about with that Biostar bored is no mosfet cooling.

    I know frozen CPU has some. They are a good trader too. Look at the ThermalRight ones, they are a bit pricey tho..

    its a pretty good mobo 750a is not 780a though so it will clock very similar to 790X would not quite top end but solid midrange

    If I spent enough for the DFI 790GX I could buy a Q9550 for the same price, which beets the PII.
