Yep, I now have two almost identical systems, with the difference being the cpu and there is a noticeable difference, especially with the temperature and ease of overclocking :p
The Phenom II's run much cooler would you say?

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.
