I run a 965 at 4.09 ghz on liquid cooling, so you should be able to get yours on a aftermarket cooler to at least 3.8 which would help a lot.
I also run a 7950 and only in some games to I ever see a real bottleneck between gpu and cpu. My bottleneck in is my memory system with ddr2 memory.
OK thanks. I have a Noctua cooler so I should be ok OverClocking it a little. Thanks for your help.
