Hi and WELCOME to OCN

There are a few simular MB and some Guides in the AMD/Motherboard "Sticky" section. Please read the guide(s) and then let the questions fly
Oh, There is a dedicated 9950 Post and Sticky on it in the AMD/CPU Sticky section too

BTW, the 9850 info is just as useful

Check out the long threads of 9950 owners (or even 9850). You'll learn a lot about the potential and limits of your CPU.

BTW, your rig is not "lame" at all. It's quite nice and pretty balanced.

"lame" he said... I agree with smooth, its a darn good system.
The only thing that may hold you back a bit is the HS due to the quads heat out put. DO NOT push your full load temps past the mid 50c range!!!
