Unfortunately we topped out at 3.3GHz which is exactly where we did with the 7750. This time, however, it was at a much lower voltage but any higher voltage caused it to crash. That said, we did have some motherboard issues so that might be the problem.

Ok wow. So Kuma 7750: $60 Kuma 7850: $75. $15 for 100mhz?

wtf amd??

That's the price the 7750 came in at. I assume the 7750 will either be phased out, or have it's multiplier locked. Meaning you will be paying extra for the 7850 for the "Black Edition" label.
