Bottleneck question with Phenom 965 BE
Sep 9, 2012, 8:23 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?

Very true! I just didn't know if I needed to invest in an aftermarket cooler yet to get it to where it needs to be but I guess I should.
