jsc said: Well, yes. But the main benefit of extreme cooling is that the system stays stable at higher applied voltages, which lets you reach a higher overclock..

blade061188 said: Yea, as a general rule, higher vCore means higher temp.

Fortunex said: Yes it is... AMD chips (or at least those based on the Phenom II architecture) with a lower temperature will clock higher with less voltage, I don't think Intel chips do the same.
