    But 90% of PC users don't overclock.... unless of course you have a perosanl contract with AMD??

    I think you're being generous. I think fewer than that really overclock. Most people couldn't even tell you what a BIOS was, forget overclocking. I bet you that it's a fraction of a fraction.

    With the advent of automated software overclocking like the OC genie's of this world, i asked them all last week and from the 337 million replies I got I concluded it was actually 9.7% so you are right :D

    You misunderstood my comment. I said that no special cooling is required for operation at the 5.0 GHz. frequency. A std. tower cooler isn't considered "special" cooling by most people who would buy a special 5.0 GHz. (expensive), CPU. "Special" in my comment meant water cooling or phase change.

    You keep saying "a standard AMD heatsink"... A standard AMD heatsink is whatever AMD decides to ship with a particular processor. They vary in size and thermal capacity. If AMD decides to package a CLC as they did with the FX-8150 then that would be the "standard AMD cooler" for the FX-9590 CPU. If they decided to package a tower cooler with the FX-9590 CPU then that would be the "standard AMD cooler". The standard coolers tend to change with each processor model and generation.

    The lack of fundemental Physics understanding is, again, staggering. This comes up all too often :cry:

    Energy in = Energy out unless you have found a way to get around thermodynamics :confused:

    It was known that AMD chip is not good on this particular game.

    reply to previous post:
    I have over 400 real life friends in my facebook account, everybody with computer but nobody know what is "overclock cpu". I guess that 99% of computer user in the world NEVER O'clock.

    I think that 1% has grown a little though, with the advent of software based auto overclocking like OC Genie and Easytune some just click the button and get a mild overclock.
