Welcome to the AMD Phenom II OverClocker's Club! This is where you can converse with other Phenom II owners and show off your overclocks! If you are a soon to be Phenom II buyer you can ask questions and get some good info on which boards are good at overclocking and if your board supports it or not. All 790GX boards do Phenom II support out of the box, but some will require a bios flash to fully recognize.

If you sell your QX9650 and 790i you would have well over the amount of money to buy a CPU + mobo. :)

I'll get one, maybe not at launch necessarily, but I'll get a 940 within the next couple months. I'll be looking for a stable 24/7 clock.

He'd be taking a step backwards. Benchers like us can't do that. If anything, we keep the Intel, and scrape up to buy the Phenom II to play around with, while using the Intel to chase the records.
