The Advanced Clock Calibration in SB750 boards was only helpful for original Phenoms. Your Phenom II does not benefit from it and would overclock the same as on an SB750 board, everything else being equal. About the only way your overclock would be better on the 790GX/SB750 board is if your current motherboard cannot raise the HT bus speed or CPU Vcore enough for you.

I forgot one thing- is the X3 710 properly supported by the board's BIOS?
