It's not a dual core. I would pass on the "big water" system and build your own. You should be able to get 4.5 to 4.8 with no problems on a good water system.

Sell that CPU on eBay, you still could get a good chunk of money for it.

Next step? Order a 950, basically you'd be able to do the same as with a Presler Extreme Edition; 300x17 on water, something you couln't do with a 3.73ghz on water.

Bottom line, get rid of that Single Core Extreme Edition and go Double Core Presler, they oveclock sky-high w/o a huge (1.55+) Vcore.

If you still want to keep the 3.73ghz, as I said chances of a (300x14) 4.2ghz is the most common on those CPUs. Best Performance overall would be with a 950 @ 5.1ghz.

I agree. The difference in real life gaming with Intel vs. AMD is much less than a single year ago and in another year there will be a singularily different accounting I believe. One must keep up with the new technology or one soon becomes an anachronism with their old inaccurate opinions.
