    Re: amd phoenom II 955

    I just built an AMD system for myself last night.

    Phenom II 965 BE
    DFI 790FXB M3H5
    GSkill RipJaws 1600DDR3
    Zalman CNPS9700


    So far it's been great and a a good overclocker too. I bumped the multi up to 20X and Vcore to 1.475 and 4Ghz is prime stable for 6 hours. I'll try raising the HTT soon but from what I've been reading the 790 doesn't like much above 220Mhz.
    Gigabyte 890XA UD3, Phenom II X6 1090T,4Ghz 2600nb w/Corsair H50, 2x2GB and 2x4GB GSKILL FLARE 1800Mhz DDR3, PNY GTX570, OCZ Vertex Turbo 60GB SSD, Intel X25 80GB SSD, Klipsch ProMedia 4.1, ASUS DVDRW, Corsair Obsidian 800D, Corsair 650W Professional series, Hanspree 26" widescreen, Cyborg R.A.T 5/Cyborg Gaming keyboard, Win7 64 Ultimate
