    Meh, I would actually care if he could break 5GHz as a reliable every day OC, but given the stupid heat issues AMD chips have these days I doubt that's possible.

    He ran the entire benchmark suite at 5ghz...That in itself is reasonably stable. It is also only 800mhz over the turbo core. I wouldn't doubt 5.5ghz on good watercooling. I also don't know what heat issues you are having the only company that I know of right now that has heat issues is the newer series of Intel chips which produce quite a lot of heat compared to the previous generation.

    dave also got 5ghz on his chip
