Default K9A2 Platinum, 2X 3870's have arrived!

They were only sent this morning, and from a different state (NSW, and I live in Victoria) so I expected them to arrive tomorrow.
But, they arrived today.

Wait, so are you using your 6000+ or a Phenom? Anyway you'll definitely be up there on the 3dmark06 list.

I'm pretty interested in your results.

At the moment, I'm using my 6000+. I can get it to 3465MHZ prime95 stable in the Foxconn C51XEM2AA board

I'll probably get a Phenom when the B3 stepping comes out.
