Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 (with an extra fan) (Supplied by Cooler Master)

Today's tests have been done on AMD's "Mainstream" Platform with one exception, that being the graphics card.

 

We used AMD's 785G platform thanks to our impressive ASRock motherboard and a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit RTM. This gives us a real good idea of just how well we can get things to move.

 

We have included the Phenom II 955 Black and the AMD Core 2 Duo E8500 as comparisons.
