not sure if the cpu itself will account for the performance differnce but keep in mind we (dazz and myself) are both running a higher fsb which DOES account for some of the difference..

wrt my old 3.0c i do notice a nice smoothness in my games now (overall fps has increased...)

nice oc btw..
Sorry I missed this for so long, haven't checked this thread.

Yes it's 36 sec, check my sig for the pi details and others under CPU/Ram benchmarks. As I said I know a fellow that turns in 34secs with a stock FX-53.
Is 36 bad? I am only on a 233 FSB at max OC. That Pi number is the same at 230-233. I can also get a 36 second time if I boot 222FSB at 2-2-2-5 but my rig just isn't stable at that tight of timing with motherboard game acceleration on top. I use 'street' racer GAT on my ram at lower OCs and 'turbo' at the highest. It take a lot to knock seconds off that Pi score.

Here's a copy paste from my Pi rec file:
