Yey! Jason cleaned up the torture rack :P

Just goes to show how much Intel's conroe magic overclocking has made us pretty much take huge overclocks for granted.

Wow, those OC results are horrible. Its amazing how much OC headroom the Intel chips have in comparison. A q6600 easily gets to 3.6 on air. We got it to 3.2 without increasing voltage. :lol:

Phenom is kind of like Netburst, except it doesn't clock.
