    Hello Guys, I'm new here as a member but have been following techPowerUp! threads for some time now and I'm an AMD user and supporter for some years now. How else can we be hardware enthusiasts with limited resources and keep Intel on the ground. I don't currently own a Phenom but will upgrade soon when the AM3 CPU's come out. I don't plan on upgrading my MoBo or RAM because of backwards compatibility but hope for processor improvements that lower voltage and thermals. Happy New Year!

    Count me in for an AM3/DDR3 Phenom II rig when the time comes. This will be a watercooled project for sure, and likely gonna be stuck in my Dark Tower mod.

    Well, after a major flood at my house and waiting for a new board, I should be up and running tonight with my 945BE chip. I'll start posting benchmarks on this thread instead of my "say hello to Phenom II" thread.

    I know. I want to see a benchmark with some DDR3 and a 940, to see what it has up against a i7. But im going to be fine with my PII. I'm just need some thing that is fast and play games, and that is cheap, and a whole lot better than my current system.

    once people start to post some benchmarks, I'll be more than glad to compare them clock for clock with my i7 :D.

    Ill do a run with Hyper threading on and one without hyper threading :D

    I need my asus board back, then ill have a Phenom II and a core i7, the best of both worlds, but my AM2 board is being RMA'ed right now :(

    Did you buy both of those boards, or did you previously had those?

    I'm back up now, after installing my Asus M3A78-T. Just when I started getting familiar with the Biostar bios, now I've got a bunch of Asus settings that I'm unsure of. Damn, I feel like a noob. Spent too much time with Intel. :laugh: Here's what I have just playing around for about an hour.

    I'd like to think I have some OC Skillz. :D:laugh: Seriously though, I don't think I'm at wall or anything. I just need to get a grip of fine tuning AMD chips and the board settings. I've been away from AMD for too long. Anyone find any concrete info on what kind of voltage is safe 24/7 on water with these chips?
