    like 10+FPS in counter strike source but thats it.. amazing how a Athlon x2 4400 can beat a phenom 9600 BE in performance lol...

    ya so it seems the engineering samples are the only 9600 BEs that can get 2 2.8 stable actually 2.6 stable xD from what ive read there is a massive gap in performance from cpu to cpu it all depends if ur lucky on the one you get will work with overclocking i have tried this @ 2.6 at 1.5 volts and it still does not want to work like it will load threw bios absolutely fine but as soon as bootmger from vista ends, well thats all your gunna get.. this really has made me unsatisfied as an AMD fan.. well there always the Phenom II x4 945 that is already at 3.0 guess after i buy that ill sell this one on ebay or something, actually no i wont ill prolly just throw it away cuz for overclocking it is junk.. im so glad i didnt have to write a review on this thing... AMD would be ruined xD

    that's almost unbelievable, that's either exotic cooling, or Photoshopped, or that person got real lucky and got one that was mis-binned.

    My phenom 9500 overclocks from 2.2 to 2.6 using amd overdrive, Using a stock 9850 black HSF without any heat issues ( +4 degrees) or voltage mods whatsoever. Ran everest at 100% for a good 2 hours with no issues! I only did this to stuff my brotheres 9850, Then set it back to stock!

    I have seen people running them at 3.0 ghz with better cooling!

    Unfortunatly you just got a bad overclocker.. :(
