Japanese overclocker "duck" has pushed a Core i7 Extreme Q965 processor to 5510MHz, a quite impressive increase from the stock frequency of 3.2GHz.

  1. The only OC's I care about are the ones within Safe Voltages and using traditional air cooling in normal casing.....

    In other words, something that would be relevent for my actual use of a computer day in and day out...........

    Not knocking the post, but such exercises do nothing for me.
    I don't have time or money to swap in a new CPU every couple days.....
