I'm jealous, but congratulations. Can you OC it for me? . Also, download the Super_Pi_Mod and tell me how fast you can complete the 1M. If possible do it on a stock clock and then on a max OC if you can. I think the mark you should be trying to break with the 920 is 7-8 seconds. Roughly 4 times faster than my OC'ed X2-5400+BE.

If you really just bought one at release then you better overclock it.

Sounds amazing by the looks of the specs!!!

Not sure how much the physics card would be used in games, but I'm guessing that was a left over from your old system anyway

Nice one

Honestly guys, you need to help me overclock. Idk how to do it. Never have done it before. I know this can OC well. I do plan on OCing, which is why I have a Coolermaster V8 CPU cooler.

I'll post pics in a sec.

Is it just me, or is that running 1GHz slower than it should?
