    Well I can manage a stable but a bit hot 4.3GHZ and a 24/7 4.1GHZ ... but like what the hell why wont it go to 5GHZ ....lol ..No man but on the for real these i7 920's are frigging amazing....When I figure out some real cooling then I think the chip will shine even more....these chips over clocking ability is just one of the best there is to date in my book...with just a upgrade on air cooling for cheap can give these chips 4GHZ no problem with the right config in the bios ....its not like its 3 out of 11 chips may clock but seems as the norm is no problem with 4+GHZ...nice job Intel :rockout:

    I think the QPI is limited to 8GT/s, which in turn is about 222mhz BCLK.

    Yes I am really enjoying all aspects of this chip...I cant wait to figure out an alternative cooling method....I need a socket 1366 head kit for my VapoChill LS :banghead: If any one knows where I can get one that would be awesome!Its either that or some kind of peltier water cooling method, but I friggin already own a VapoChill LS and would like to use it:D
