(I would still like 3DSages chip though, 5GHz @1.38v...insane
) Off now to install service pack 1 and get some AVX loving.
Props on the overclock, temps are ideal imo...
4.7GHZ is Still a beast
BTW How much does your SB core temps differ? I have one core that is about 4-6C cooler than the other cores on load
