i have a biostar ta790GX that thinks its a GXE. =(
Carvelo89, to increase/decrease the cpu voltage for this processor go to T-Series -> Voltage Configuration. Look for the option "CPU Vcore".
Let us know if that helps.

Fortesquieu, great question. Hopefully we see a comparison eventually. I'm assuming the Phenom II 720BE (for example) performs better because of the large L3 cache. Not to mention the additional may be helpful as well. Maybe you could get together with another Sempron 140 user and run some benchmarks
