I've heard that Phenoms at 2.8GHZ can get around 4K
Maybe if you used XP, you'd get a bit higher.
Anyway, I'll be wanting a black edition phenom to go in my system, so I can hopefully overclock it past 3GHZ.
I'll be happy if I can get 3.2 or more.

also, BiG...can you please run super pi 32m on that rig and lemme know the score.
maybe 3dmark 06 so i can get a reasonable estimation of its ability. thanks!
I think Core Temp is usually more accurate than BIOS readouts are.
considering it does take the temperatures of the sensors inside
Anyway, it's about time I put my results in, I think.
