Ooops.... if you want this post position back for upcoming benchies I'll gladly delete it and add my comments when you're done reserving positions......
No worries, two slots should be fine.

I too am anxious to see where she tops out. Yet being busy with a couple other orders at the same time, I am patient and know this project will get put to the side a couple times before it's finished. So I'm never in a rush to push a chip like this, and enjoy savoring it!


I have to mention, that it's really something else to see a $65-85 dollar motherboard performing faster than it would with an FX-62 or X2-6000! Since the price of those two parts are considerable, it isn't logical that people would put them in a budget motherboard. The Black X2-5000 changes all that, and with a decent video card this system would seriously scream! Coupled with the fact that you won't need a $100+ power supply, uber D9 memory, or exotic cooling, what we have here is a new level of potency for budget builds.
