    Overclocking with 790GX,790FX,790X and 780G motherboards.

    To all the owners of motherboards with these chipsets please can you submit what stable overclocks you have got with these motherboards.

    I think it is time that people posted results as it seems many think that these chipsets are not that great for overclocking.

    Edit!!

    Also mention which southbridge the motherboard uses ,ie, whether it is a SB700,etc!! Mention what processor you are using, the cooler and the PSU you are using. Any details of voltages used and HT frequency will be useful.

    I think the Southbridge would also be worth mentioning as I here that can make a difference.

    Re: Overclocking with 790GX,790FX,790X and 780G motherboards.

    From what i read over at Overclock.net they all overclock about the same with the new Phenom II chips. The advantage of the new Southbridge was 'Advanced Clock Control', but AMD built it in to the PHII chips as well in order to make sure they have a good overclocking reputation.

    Might be wrong, time will tell. From results i've seen the 780G can definitely keep up with the 790GX, it just can't unlock the 4th core on the X3 720.
