After 2 reformats and driver fixing, I found out my problem with the low frame raits was because of my ram at 510mhz. I dono why, because it was passing prime and othros.. So I set the divider to 133 and now the ram is at around 403mhz so thats ok for now.

Anyways its 86F in this room and its hitting 50C tops at load. So I think I'm going to leave it at 2.85ghz till the as5 cures and I analize the situation before I hit 2.9ghz.

I think so far im pretty pleased with the results even though its not a 0610 or 0617 stepping.

anyways I attached a screen of by benchmark in 06.

My old cpu score was 1064 with the 3200+ @ 2.64 and I've doubled that with the opteron at 2.85. If you compair price to preformance its a good deal but as far as how strong it is for a AMD dual core at 2.85 its pretty weak..


oh and for the record I saw NO jump in gpu score with this new cpu. Just to add to my argument for those that think a mildly clocked 3200+ will really bottleneck a 7900GT.
