Some have put Xtremes in the FX for what it is worth. I do not think you can get BIOS support to take advantage of the Xtremes unlocked multipliers.
Ok, thanks. As for the Extreme processors, I could have sworn that someone said that once you drop one in, the bios detects the unlocked multiplier?

Whats the highest processor the new FX's can handle? According to Newegg, the 7807 has a 1024*hz processor, so it shouldn't be limited by the 800mhz limit of the aforementioned 600 series thing?

It is not it has the PM45 chipset as such it can use all the 1066Mhz fsb CPU's like the T9900 for example or X9100.

What are the newest drivers for the 6860? I haven't updated mine in a long time. And does anyone know if the new ones are any better at performance?

I just updated to 190.15 with a modded inf from laptopvideo2go. I haven't had a chance to test them out yet to see if there was any performance gain though.

So when I am using iTunes, sometimes it freezes and skips at least 3 times each song with freezes every few songs for 10 seconds and a lockup every 10 minutes or so. I have to restart my computer also. Has anyone had issues with this? ANY ideas on how to fix it? I give rep even for trying to help. Thanks!

It is not your CPU is not your HDD is not your RAM it really is not much. I think Software/applications. You need to consider reducing processes? I don't think a hardware issue

Could be, and you might be the one of the first to get it, as far as I know they only come in 17".
