Fugger is aiming for a new world record http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53037 !
maybe Intel shouldn't have cancelled the 4 GHz
only if the stock cooler is a 3-stage casecade
Now thats hectic
and he's only using the stock NB heatsink with artic silver 5 and a 7k rpm fan on it (for 380mhz FSB)
that is bloody unreal
memtesting at 6.6gig
I wonder if he'll come to syd and do my rig for me
meh...overclocking doesn't need skill.. All it need is a cool mind, time and money
especially time and money
moreso time. Bum around all day at forums + become a hardware reviewer = get free hardware / beta samples / ES CPUS!
What he has posted so far is a screenshot at 5.9 Ghz with a SuperPi result - amazing enough, but still a good mile away from 7.2 Ghz.
to get it to post at 7.2gig is a great achievement in itself
no doubt about that!
7.2Ghz was a stable BIOS shot.
and he has boot issues at 350mhz FSB and above (can't blame him)
i wish i had the time and money lol. Well time i got money i dont :S
needs some skills, well for extreme oc'ing that is... wish i knew how to solder and volt mod and wasn't such a wuss when it comes to phase change cooling haha
lol sounds just like me
soldering isn't a skill
now tell me eva, if you had a million AUD to spend on computer parts, would you be such a wuss in phase changing?
EDIT: don't tell me someone of your calibre eva2k, can't solder whereas a 13 year old could solder confidently (SMD..etc) It's easy! Just try!
heh if i had $1m bucks yeah things would change regarding phase change cooling
i did try soldering but couldn't get past tinning a wire lol - solder just wouldn't stay
Well, in that case, the best word for this situation is NOOB!
Nah...you just probably didn't heat up the wire enough before you shoved in the solder. And, remember not to shove the solder into the iron, but the wire itself (somewhere where the tip hits the wire).
