Closed Bottleneck question with Phenom 965 BE Tags: CPUs Bottleneck Phenom Last response: September 16, 2012 10:54 AM in CPUs Share Fatalis September 9, 2012 8:23:29 AM My 965 is at 3.6ghz right now with a stock cooler and I run a 7850. I was thinking of adding another 7850 since some are on sale but would this cause my CPU to bottleneck the cards or would it be fine? If not how far would I have to OC my CPU?
