    I love what that one guy posted "overclocking is so 90s."

    HAHA that's so bloody true.

    I might be good if it was truly a quad at 5Ghz. It was only really an e6600 at 5Ghz as two cores were disabled.

    Still interesting tho.

    true. Does the fact that it WAS a quad help? I mean, if they took a dual core cpu and tried this, would they get the same success, or was this so successful simply because it was a quad with 2 cores disabled?
