    Andre Yang, a civil engineer doing his PhD. in the US obtained a high-performing Core 2 Duo E8600 processor, he succeeded in overclocking this chip to a stellar 6.70 GHz clock-speed (FSB 672.16 x 10.0). The processor uses liquid-nitrogen (LN2) cooling and surprisingly this processor was overclocked on a motherboard with the Intel X48 chipset, the ASUS Rampage Extreme when previous record-holders across several recent processors made use of either the Intel P35 or P45-based motherboards. The validation page for this overclock can be reached here

    I'm looking for a Pi score by this guy. Well....it's validated, that's 20% journey crossed.

    Interesting that previous oc record holders used P35 and P45 chipset based mobos.. i did know that P35 boards are that powerful.. i happen to own one..

    CPUZ validation is just getting that lucky screenshot saved before the suicide overclock fails.......
    SK-1 says thanks.

    P35's and P45's can reach much higher FSB's than X38s/48s for some reason the FSB WR is currently held by a biostar i45 @702mhz or so

    That's pretty insane but not very practical for every day tasks.

    Damn, it seems like just the other day when shit like 1,2,3,4, etc ghz was insane . . . now 4ghz oc is pretty much expected with little to no effort.

    you spend less on a biostar and a 8400 than you would on a asus and a 8600.

    That's b/c biostar has been making good boards for a few years now. The bios may be shoddy or just plain shit, but the boards have been pretty good.

    10ghz or im not impressed.

    But alas i remember when the 1ghz Barrier was broken, everyone wanted one, only a few could afford them, back then i had a summer job mowing lawns and saved and saved and saved, and at the end of the summer i walked away with an Athlon 1.1B 256mb of PC100, and a large 40gb ATA100 drive, it took every penny though, why can't that still be fast, i spent 1200 on it.

    i mowed everyday for 2 and a half months, charged 10 an hour, and spent about 14 hours a day mowing, from sun up to sundown. I wanted to replace my Pentium 133 badly, granted i didn't work always 14 hours a day, but i busted my but that summer, i had just turned 14. The real pain was paying my dad back for the lawnmower, and then mowing 2-4 acre fields with a 3.5 Briggs and Stration Push mower. Oh the fun, but i earned my computer, now here is the funny part i wanted the best money could buy because i want to play CFS2 and FS98 lol.

    That and my dad had a PII 450, 128mb PC100, 20gb HD and i wanted to be faster, i sucedded till next summer when i bought an Athlon 1.4, 512mb PC133, and a new 80gb drive and of course his Geforce3 to compete with my Geforce 2 GTS

    Wow, I feel so lazy lol. I got my pc by working in a pizza shop only 15-20 hours a week and just on weekends and quit as soon as I got a girlfriend and wanted my weekends back. And then I upgraded with graduation money.
