Brutis, no I did not overclock it. It is fast enough, feels much more snappy than my 5000. The mobo gets also a bit hotter. The SB chip, next to the CPU, gets quite hot. Maybe the 1800mhz HT lines are causing this. In Ã‚Â´speedfan` , 434beta37, youÃ‚Â´ll notice a very fast temp. rise if you do heavy calculating sw like winrar etc. Not a problem but very differerent from the M2A VM board. Got a mail from Asus BTW that the TLB patch is enabled in bios on the M2A VM board.
Good service from Asus. And the mobo feels fast. If the 9550 gets to the dealers I will buy them immediately. The way AMD design their cpuÃ‚Â´s is just fantastic. A true quad core is the way to go;) and I feel they only get better over time.
