Great job! I have been considering the FX-4170. From the few reports about their OC stats thus far, it looks like they might have better OC potential than the 4100.

Use the indicated button to bring up the post picture menu . Then either browse for a picture on your computer or click the tab to insert the url of a picture from the internet, whether it be an existing pic on a webpage or one you have posted to photobucket- etc. If you need to capture a screen shot, the best way is to use the Windows "Snipping tool" found in accessories. Open Snipper, drag around area you want, and then save as a jpeg or whatever format you prefer.You can then open the image in Paint or any other paint program you have to modify. This is how I ccreated the posted image. This image can then be selected to post on the forum by the method above.

Good luck with your 4170 and welcome to OCN! thumb.gif

Probably less than a Phenom II x4 at 4Ghz.  The FX-41XX series processors are more power efficient.
