might be able to overclock it to 3.2 on stock cooling but I highly reccomend aftermarket cooling.

Thanks,

But i was hoping to get a reply from someone who has the same cpu and board as mine and see what they had set theirs at.

So this is my set up:

XFX 790i ultra
Arctic cooler 7 pro cpu cooler
q9450
Gskill 4gb 1333, CL 8-8-8-21 ,1.65 Volts
2 x raptors
geforce 260gtx

I'm looking to get around the 3 to 3.2ghz mark

I've got 1748 FSB running at 3.5ghz. It'll stretch to 3.6/3.7 but I need a better cooler. I've got the 780i
