Ok, heres the thing. When a car does the world speed record down at laguna seca they are required to run a speficic course and they to do the return run. the record speed is the avarage of both runs. I said the same when intel pulled the same stunt at toms hardware a few years back. they took a northwood P4 and Liquid nitrogen cooled it to 4.something ghz. The record is usless unless its stable. any idiot can get a CPU to post at ridiclous speeds with the right tweaking. i want to see them complete a prime95 run or a 3dmark run. shutdown. restart the system and complete a 2nd prime95 or 3dmark run. i doubt that machine could do 2+2 in calc.exe let alone a prime95 run.
