I also hate when I delete a whole bunch of text... usually happens to me when I'm writing an email then pause to think about what to say next, and end up deleting a whole train of thought.
My point too, I think a q6600@3Ghz may have been hampering the full potential of my 295 as you know. I was along the thinking that perhaps that q9650 might benefit me.
My q6600 has terrible thermal profile. It needs vcore of 1.45v to get to 3.4Ghz...watercooled and still OCCT brings it to 70 degrees plus!!!
When benching crysis it was logged hover around 50-60 degrees though
It idles at 44-47 degrees!!!
