I do plan on overclocking eventually,
but don't see a need right now.
I amagine I could easily get 3.4 for daily use with little voltage increase.
I'm not having any problems,
Memtest86 (dos version) did 2 passes np.
Prime95 passed 4 hours easy.
im getting 47c max temp on core 1, the others seem to be 3c lower. (maybe the paste didn't get it entirely.... I use small amounts...)
This is with my modded zalman cooler.
It is running nice as well,
but I was concerned because I was expecting a passmark cpu mark in the 4000 range. But I only scored 2000'ish.
My old 6750 @3.4 would rock close to 1800
From your 3dmark06 scores though It seems that the cpu is performing just fine.....
Maybe it's an OS re-install or new hdd that will fix passmark score.......
