i have the newest bios update
phenom is at 2,9 Ghz and ram is on 800mhz
Catalyst version? OS u're using? RAM timings?
And your Phenom is kinda slow IMO. What cooling solution u have for it? I mean, with a MaxOrb u can get 3.4Ghz with no sweat. Also, play with your RAM FSB and your HT link multi and speed so u can squeeze more from your Phenom BE.
