Unfortunately i could only reach 3.0ghz once, when i had really good ram(mushkin). Unfortunately, that really good ram only lasted one clocking session lol. Now with the G skills i have, 2.5 is as high as i can go.....POS>

yes, but some of the early Opteron 1xx (that were Socket 939) series were actually great overclockers and performed better in games than the Athlon X2

For all of those curious for cpu score on 3dMark06 for a phenom 9500... Got it at 2.42Ghz with stock cooling. Running on a ECS A770-M AM2+ board. Temperature is at 30 degrees C. Excuse the GFX its just a fill in until my 8800gt comes in on monday.

Are you using stock fan and heatsink? I had it at 2.52 and it froze while doing a stress test, so I turned it down a bit. Plus my temporary case is super old like 7 years old. My new case comes tomorrow and actually has case fans

Iron Angel: That 3Dmark score is worser than I imagined.

oh I see, I'm using an AC Freezer 64 pro w/ AS5, but also my case is a Cooler Master Centurion5.
