here is my best cinebench score as of yet, i'm still doing some tweeking, :
COMMENT=MAXON CINEBENCH is based on the high performance animation and rendering software MAXON CINEMA 4D.
COMMENT=These are your MAXON CINEBENCH R11.5 results.
COMMENT=Results Disclaimer - CINEBENCH results are indicative of overall system performance when using CINEMA 4D,
COMMENT=and do not necessarily reflect the performance of the tested hardware with other applications.
COMMENT=Performance of each component (processor, graphics card) does rely somewhat on other components in the system.
COMMENT=Results provided are typical, although not derived from specific testing procedures.
PROCESSOR=AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor
OPENGLVENDOR=ATI Technologies Inc.

OSVERSION=Windows 7, 64 Bit, Ultimate Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
it never goes over 48 C , and it rest at 18 C, drops down to 1.4 ghz at .91 volts (so that says quite a bit about power usage) , it will ramp up to 3.4ghz when it needs to, then to 4.0ghz again,when it needs to, then right back down when it doesn't. now i don't know what everybody is saying about this being a power hog, yeah, it uses what most do while playing battlefield3 (playing battlefield3 it never goes above 30 C, and that's on large maps, multiplayer, online) , but it's like a sleeping giant, barely breathing, till you wake it :-) , i am glad i did this build, i'm glad i went with amd, and i don't see one single drawback as of yet, it's soild, stable, and can take anything that i have thrown at it, it runs cooler than any other computer that i have seen.
