I can get 4.8GHz stable! :P

At any rate, AMD is a year too late with this CPU... around the same price, you can get the i5 2500k.

It was at 1.6V. I have been running phenoms on water up to 1.6V for years. CPUZ shows 1.64 for some reason. Temps never go over 55. Its all good. I did a dice run too at 5.5GHz+/
