"The first leaks were that the Phenom II could hit 4 GHz on air cooling alone, though we obviously wonder how extreme that air cooling is. Well today AMD had some actual demonstrations at their gathering, and the Phenom II was able to hit 5 GHz at 1.6v by using LN2 cooling. So with some pretty extreme cooling the Phenom II does show that it has some legs in the clockspeed department. "

cool i suppose... honestly i would have preferred an air cooling demo not a liquid nitrogen cooling demo.

It's amazing how many times this keeps getting posted. I expect a few more before Denebs release.

What good is liquid nitrogen cooling to anybody in the real world? None. I bet its still slower than an i7........

We are the AMD fanboys (bar jimmy) you dope.

We want Deneb to be a great performer too ... but the point about recycled links is getting us down.

When will people realise LN cooling is just useless crap anyway?

W want to know how well it goes on decent aftermarket air cooling, and how well it goes on water. A few might venture to a phase cooling rig ... but I have been there and killed too many parts myself.

I am more interested in air and water ... stick your fire and earth ... um woops.

At least the guy has half-way decent audio attached to his rig - more than I can say for most.

strangerstranger - you should have a look at the CA DACMagic - I think that it would work nicely with your kit, and it's fairly affordable ($450 US).

He means that you have come from the basement for fresh people to kill

Seriously, I've seen him round for sometime...

Woot! Integrated speakers WTL!

Of course I'm not an AMD fan. I am no Fan. Except for MT Dew. Thats something I can be a proud fan of.

Fire cooling. Just can't get enough use out of those 4 elements like back in the days of Empedocles.

Seriously, you said in a nutshell what I said in an earlier thread in twice as many words. Regardless of whether I overclock (and I don't -- I like stock speed improvements with new stepping and die shrinks), I find the results a fun read, unless it's on liquid nitrogen. That's so not possible on most of our desktops and I'm sure no one uses it for day to day use.

The only purpose liquid nitrogen cooling serves is to inflate Futuremark scores to even more worthless levels.

just because you cant get 5GHz on air cooling doesnt mean you cant get 3... i personally think you are insane if you dont overclock a Core 2

Agreed on so many levels.

No reason to get a Q6600 and not OC it at no risk to 3GHz at the minimum.

true jimmy.

Bummer my M2n mobos won't take Penom II ... stuck with 6000+'s now ... not so bad for my kids I guess. They can still game pretty well with the latest stuff.

I'd like an ES to play with but I am not so lucky this time round ... or yet.

wow, thats some impressibe overclock - shame it only posted a superpi 1M time thats about 10% better than my stock E6600 thats about 2 years old....
