hey, I'll be upgrading soon and wanted to hit 4.5Ghz on air again, only this time with an i7. I'd use it at 4.3Ghz 24/7. I haven't seen many comprehensive databases available on the net like there was for the conroe. Have you guys run into a collection of some promising oc results? any links? thanks. Many review sites don't share my lack of fear. I'm not afraid to push my processor. I've been pushing the limits of every processor I've had for 8 years now. If its not good enough I resell it. I'd be willing to go water, but wanna keep the whole 4.5ghz experience under $500. I'll be investing in a high quality tri-sli board probably a classified.
