I would like to see how far it goes with more mainstream cooling techniques. I don't think liquid nitrogen (or helium) session which are not practical and only lasts for very short period is of any relevance at all. But I do get why all the hype about it considering humans obssession with speed and limits.
@KreepyK: I doubt anyone would get beyond 5ghz with a good air cooler, and with liquid probably low to mid 5s. This is based on my observations from many reviews and other forum posts, where the average overclock seems to have a high of around 4.7 on air. I might be wrong though, and if so I'd like to see it.
Freaking sweet. Beats the hell out of my 200mhz Pentium lol.
8429.38GHz. ==> should prob be 8429.38 MHz
Andre Yang is a famous guy.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Kudos AMD keep up the good work.
Keeps those chips hard at work :). One ay make it stock clock :D
I believe the ban on Andre was lifted/withdrawn. It's a crazy overclock, and even though I feel AMD made a tradeoff that I shouldn't have to put up with in 2011 (lower IPC for higher clocks) it still looks good.
I do have one question: doesn't overclocking void your warranty? If so, why do CPU companies continue to 'market' the ability to potentially damage your chip. Andre's CPU-Z says it's almost at 2v!
