5.4ghz is a huge achievement! They needed some pretty serious cooling for it though. Not something that somebody can just get their hands on.

Indeed impressive. With some good water cooling people should be able to get them to 4.5 or higher.

5.4 on LN2 is crazy though!:eek:

Not really incredible..
Using a 3.2GHz Core i7 965 Engineering Sample....

It's nice, but god only knows what they did to get it that far, and who is to say that EE/ES chip wasn't handpicked to make it look better...

What you have to wait for are the standard overclocks on people chips without heavy mods and such insane cooling

yea, i agree with niko, EE chips are supposed to be great due to their unlocked multies, i doubt the regular chips will be able to do the same.
