Origin PC Overclocks 6-Core i7-980X to 4.3GHz

If having the fastest 'stock' desktop processors in the newly released Intel Core i7-980X "Gulftown" isn't good enough for you, then perhaps gaming PC maker Origin PC has the answer for you.

While an additional $895 will buy for your Origin Genesis PC a regular 3.33 GHz Core i7-980X, forking over a full $1,044 will unleash the full beast overclocked to 4.3 GHz. If you've ever wanted to boast that your six-cores runs a gigahertz faster than those "other guys" at stock speeds, this could be what you're looking for.
