Sadly it's true, I have a phenom 9850 and can't get a decent overclock. I had a thread with the same title, except with the 4870x2.

I tried my card on a friends machine with an OC'd Q9550 and got great scores. I'm 90% sure that its the cpu in my case, and not the motherboard. I'll be a 100% sure tomorrow.

You guys should get that 6000+ cpu, 3.1 outta the box. I dont know how well it OC's, but it should give you an improvement, even though it has 2 less cores. Its fairly cheap right now. It wont multotask as well as teh quad cores but whatever, most games dont utilize more than 2 cores anyway.
