MSI resolves P55/Clarkdale coldbug issue on Big Bang

Then breaks WPrime 32M world record

MSI's marketing team recently invited 19 famous overclockers to Taiwan to do some first-hand overclocking on their new Big Bang Trinergy/Fuzion P55 based motherboards. Anticipation is high for this weapon and MSI had total confidence in seeing top notch results.

Sure enough, they got what they wanted. After MSI took notice, recognizing and resolving a known coldbug issue on P55 (when used in conjunction with Clarkdale processors) that limits extreme overclockers from touching the skies and beyond in the overclocking realm, famous overclocker Massman got stuck back into the board and came out with flying colours, breaking a WPrime 32M world record @ 7sec 329ms with a clock rate of 6485MHz.

MSI has since also bettered its P55-GD80 and P55-GD85 models by removing the Clarkdale coldbug issue on these boards, too.
