I thought you had to lower your LDT multi to 3 once you got over 250 HTT or you could fry your operating system or somethin. Anyone with more experience know for sure? I am still a bit of a nubcicle myself

i've heard that you had to lower it to 3x also, but I haven't had any problems...doesn't make it ok, but still, i haven't had any problems.

you are doing better than a stock FX57 but if you had one you wouldn't leave it stock. 3 GHz no problem on the 57.

Id say the difference between the 57 and yours is that you can overclock the FX-57 further, but yours may be unstable if you did that.

Very few actually own the 57 and have real experience with it. I can't say how good or bad it OCs but i'd put money on the 57 blowing your 3700 away when OCed... lots of money.

The point is that no one buys the 57 cause you can get similar speeds by OCing a system that costs WAY less =)

True the 57 will probably OC further but considering no one would notice in anything other than benchmarks I figure it is pointless to spend that kind of cash for it.
