The original release Phenoms were x4 quad cores. AMD had performance issues so they disabled 1 core making them x 3(tri cores). Although I have a quad core 9850BE, I read a bit about them. I am sure it will overclock some but on the other hand your mobo has a SB700 chipset which should allow for some modest overclocking. I went from a SB600 chipset to SB750 and what a difference! Good luck.

Here's a link of a guy who got to 2.9GHz:

I'm on an amd SB700 and got a 500mhz jump on my 7750.

100% stable @ 3.2ghz but anything over and it can handle it for so long then crashes and its not a lack of power, took it up from 1.425v to 1.6v and gained no stability @ 3.3ghz, i can boot in @ 3.5ghz but i thnk its the SB700 holding me back.
