    Hey guys, I'd like to know what my personal tower is able to reach.

    When using geekbench, will you get an accurate score from the 32-bit system, or would you need to use a 64-bit system in order to see what your true score is? I only ask because I don't mind spending $20... but I'd rather spend that one something that I will use more than one time.

    Currently my 2008 2.8 oct core mac pro with 16 gb's of ram is getting me an average of about 9250.

    Also while on this topic... what is something that you can use to overclock your system? ZDNET - clock does not seem to be doing the job... the 32 bit version of geekbench numbers don't change after using zdnet's system clocker.

    I really don't think overclocking your 5400s is going to be worth the risk you present to your data.
