I never said the CPU has 100% stable and I'm not trying to mislead anyone. I just thought it would be fun to get a processor and overclock it on air and water to see what it can do. Part two talks about the stability in the conclusion, so hopefully this will clear things up.
In Part 1 on page 4 I said:
With a solid 800MHz overclock on our processor we seem to have a winner on our hands. At 3.0GHz the processor flies, but we did encounter some stability issues when running gaming benchmarks.
I'm not trying to mislead anyone.
Personally, I don't get the impression that you are trying to mislead and if my previous comment sounded like that I apologize. All the same, in part 2 of your review I am only seeing single PI scores and reference to what might be a single session of Prime95(I would suggest SP2004 Orthos beta for future stability reference(s)
as it handles both cores in 1 gui as opposed to the semi-cumbersome process of running 2 gui's and manually identifiying their affinity
While a single session of P95 might hold stable at 2.9, a dual session may not. Also while a single session of PI may yield 28 odd secs(fairly impressive)a dual core session will not, but it won't be far away so oh well
I think that its really cool that your site provides this info, and I say again, I am not posting this comment to bash your efforts, I in fact applaud them. I just think, for the reader to get a better understanding of the big picture they should also be introduced to the conventions used to determine maximum OC'ability/stability and whether or not that will provide that level of performance they are looking for; be it a hardcore, volt-modding enthusiast or discerning customer with no interest in performance pushing whatsoever. The article was well written and I am sure you have already generated interest in the production week/stepping of that CPU regardless of how much info was posted.
(I love these emo-cons here)
Thanks for taking the time to reply and expand on the earlier review that was posted.
