at 3.3ghz playing bad company 2 my processor gets to about 80% usage with the gpu constantly above 95% usage, max temps are 57*C,

at 4.5ghz, same scenario (less cpu usage of course) but my temps get to 67*C max, gpu is still maxed out,

point being, i mayaswell just use my processor at stock, instead of faffing around with prime blend all the time trying to get 4.5ghz stable when at 3.3ghz, there is no difference whatsoever thanks to my "crappy" 5850... there aren't many games out there that stress cpu beyond bc2, i still get 80+fps, and 10*C less on my processor with no performance drop whatsoever :/
