Stable - Being able to play a high demanding game (Crysis- High) for extended amount of time.

^+1 you may get 4.5-4.6GHz with good water cooling and extreme voltage.

Nice catch...didn't make sense!

If you look down on H20 there are two guys that overclock to 5GHZ on X2 and X6. Do you think they just validated but probably weren't stable. If I wanted to get to 4.6 on a X6, what kind of H20 systems would I need, particular the brand.

I had a funny situation with the Sandy Bridge b/c i decide to build a new system in Jan and I bought the new 2600k and with ASUS Evo and was really happy, just using it on stock and i didn't get chance to overclock it b/c I had an issue with the 5th PCIx slot and I sent it back for a new one and that following Monday the recall went into effect so I got screwed and they kept it and refunded me. I couldn't got a new one in April and had all this time to have fun with it. Anyways I went with a X6 and find that is more fun trying to get more out of your dollar then spending all that money on Intel even though Sandy Bridge is not a bad deal at all!

On water cooling your pushing over 5 GHZ on 2600k and 2500K!

I think I'll wait until the bulldozer or wait until spring and hope Sandy bridge boards go down a little.

My question is that what game would actually benefit from 5 GHz?

My question to your question is that, Is there a point where FPS has threshold where it doesn't matter how much higher you go. I get 50 FPS plus on 1920 on 1080 on Crysis but I don't have a monitor that gets a higher resolution so is it pointless to try to overclock for more FPS.
