Thought it would be interesting to see how far people are overclocking their chips on their primary PC.

I havent really overclocked since the AM2 days...

 

I did overclock everything in the Socket A and 939 days... I pushed 939 as hard as i could without going to a sub-zero cooling...I mean pushing ddr400 to ddr760 speeds is unreal... but I did it.

 

Leaning on AM2 and pushed a good 3.6ghz out of quite a few Brisbane chips and 3.8ghz out of a few... since then I've done little to no overclocking....

3.4 GHz OC versus 2.8 GHz stock, so ~20%. Now, how do you want to account for the unlocked fourth core?

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
