I never benched above 265x12 because it just wouldn't no matter what i tried. I even got the evap head down to -59 and put extra washers on the head bolt to get a better contact, but it just wouldn't bench any higher. I think my opteron project is reaching the end of its life as there is a certain wk13 FX55 calling out to me
It's a shame your CPU is bugging out, I'm rather surprised you're having so much difficulty considering your using top of the line parts. Haha perhaps its a sign you need a new hobby.
How about gardening?
Haha j/k of course, you totally kill my 3DMark03 score, grr I wish I got two 512MB GTX's instead of 256MB models but they weren't available...
When you tighten the screws just turn it till it's hand tight. One of my other friends broke one of the mounting stubs (in the evap head!) by over tightening it.
The FX will certainly be sweet, go for it!
Look forward to your upcoming results!
