Warning! Beware if you have a MSI 785G mini-ATX motherboard, they will not be able to stand the quad-core and will burn eventually. I have burnt 2 in 1 month already and the third is in RMA process.

Not so good compared with the Micro Center one which has a free MB with it
Nearest MC to me is over 450 miles away. Will you go get me the CPU/MB combo deal and ship it to me for cost? There are MILLIONS of us that Do NOT live near a Micro Center. Stop comparing every deal to their prices.
Phenom ll x6 1090T OC@ 3.71GHz / 8 GB G Skill / 2 x 32 GB SSD Raid 0 / Samsung F3 1TB / GTX 560 Ti / LG 32" / Sammy 23"
I own a 965 and like grueber I have it overclocked to 3.8 Ghz with air cooling, which is close to a 12% overclock. I had it up to 4.0 Ghz, but it wasn't completely stable. Great chip and has held its value pretty well over the last few years.
just out of curiosity because my brother uses this chip, what kind of frame rate differences do you see with that kind of overclock?
It is not going to be the same for everyone because each game is different and so is the resolution/settings people play at. What it comes down to if the CPu or GPU is bottlenecked. I have my 965 overclock to 4.3 also and saw no changes with my U3011 monitor when compared to stock.
