Hello All,


Intel’s has launched their latest flagship desktop processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX6850, and we’ve got it on the test-bench at  Here’s a snip:


“It took a small voltage bump to 1.45V in the BIOS to hit 3.73GHz.  To achieve this, we raised the FSB to 466MHz and dropped the multiplier to X8.  Once we hit our highest, stable clock speed, we were surprised how stable things were even with a relatively low cost standard HSF cooler.  We used an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 cooler to achieve these results.”
