It does what I want right now... It really performs great and at this point I don't have any reason to get a quad so when I was putting this build together I saw the clock speeds people were able to get with the 7200 and it looked like the best bang for my buck...

It's running pretty hot as it is... I don't plan on keeping at 4.1 for 24/7 use so I don't know possibly tonight I could "play" some more... Just a little scared to fry it....

Side note:

I was trying to address my heat issues and was looking at my hsf (Xigmatek rifle)... Found that one leg wasn't attached fully to the board.. I pulled the board and fixed the issue. When putting everything back I was installing the first 2 gig stick of memory and I can't really explain what happened, it's like the heatsink pulled away from the strip and took all the IC's with it... So I ended up with a stick of ram in the slot with now IC's on it... WTF!!!

So I'm running on 2gig with Vista right now... Not sure what that will do to my benchies... I haven't noticed much of a difference in performance but it really pi$$ed me off to have it fall apart like that...

2gb and 4gb makes almost no difference in 3dmark. I actually got my first 20k+ with only 2gb in.

Going to today. Just hope they don't make me send back both sticks since it came as a kit.. Would they do that?
