Now if I reflect back to the 2500K and 2600K release, when those were sold out, there were tons of threads with prime95/linx/whatever 4.8-5.3ghz stable on both air and water.
How many did NewEgg have in stock 3 of each? lol
My 5ghz run was stable. Look back a couple pages. Here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/sh...0&postcount=52
I found out what is causing instability with my system... wait for it.. AMD drivers!
The built in AMD overdrive in the latest Catalyst drivers are screwing with my CPU. I'm running just the drivers right now and am having no issues. Amazing.
