As to single cores scores, you can go back to earlier reviews where we used the same benchmarks. I'm trying to think of a way so that readers can access benchmark scores and compare them, without having to include every score in every review.
I didn't focus on the 840EE or dual core so much as Nate has already covered both extensively in earlier reviews, and I used a phase change because I just bought it and wanted to see how far this procvessor will go, i think its kind of obvious that not everyone is going to have $1000 to spend on a cooling solution.
Please take the review for what it is, a review of a processor at stock speeds covering a wide range of benchmarks, and my attempt to take it as far as it could go.
Yeah, definately, I'm not trying to crap on your review at all! You did a very nice job and I agree that it is always nice to see the overclocking potential of a CPU when heat is not an issue and I'm sure if I had a Mach II I would be doing the same thing!
