Overall looks fucking awesome Shift! Not sure if you really have that thing stable at 5.8 though. Cmon, 5.8GHz? Really? Not knocking you at all I just find that almost impossible!-- :D Great setup though!

I just had this converstaion with Storm on the phone. Where did I ever claim it was stable? I posted in at 5.81 and got a pic of the bios showing that I did it. Never said it was running at that. As a matter of fact it crashed loading the desktop. I might be able to pull off 5.1 or 5.0, but for how long I don't know. I'm not dumb enough to even try running any applications at that speed, as I would probably be way overtemp without phase cooling. I just wanted to see if I could get in and get a cpu-z screenie at 5.81. For everyday use I'll be running at 3.6 as it's rock solid there. Might press my luck and run it at 4.0 since I'm gonna be in the market for a new chip soon anyways.

I think 4 should be achievable depending if you solve the RAM issue, but 3.6 should be good enough, right?

With phase change you can overclock the Penryn Extreme Editions into the 5s. I don't know how long it stays stable but you can benchmark them just fine at that.


Or you can do what this guy did. 5.63 GHz, cooling with liquid nitrogen.

Quote:
GERMAN ENTHUSIAST Michael Schnetzer, a.k.a. No_name, has posted a record breaking 3DMark result on several sites, after having crunched some pretty remarkable numbers on his computer.

His claims are backed up by the Futuremark Online Results Browser and several enthusiast sites - and as far as we can see it, it’s legit.

No_name’s rig is a QX9650 running at 5.63GHz on Liquid Nitrogen with a QuadFire HD3870X2 setup also cooled by liquid nitrogen. It also sports 2GB of Mushkin Redline DDR3 and a Mushkin 800W PSU, sayeth a Mushkin speaker.

His set-up had its core raised to 1.896V in order to secure the 5.63GHz clock, while keeping his DDR3 ever-so-importantly synched with the FSB. This enabled him to score 31782 marks in ’06 (1280x1024 no AA no AF) and 131286 marks in ’03 (1024x768 no AA no AF).
