Kentsfield samples overclocked to the heavens

| Tweaking & Overclocking News | Posted: Aug 17, 2006 8:56 pm

Although Intel's quad-core Kentsfield processor isnt set to surface for a good while yet, some lucky lads over at the XtremeSystems forums have somehow managed to get their mits on engineering samples, and you guessed it.. overclocked them to all buggery! But this one takes the prize, a member by the name of "Stoolman" ramped his stock 2.66GHz quad-core chip right up to a blitzing speed of 4.9+ GHz.

 



Well I'm letting my Kentsfield go, due to the expenses of my hobby... So, before i let it out of my hands.. I had to have another go at it...
Using my new Asus P5W DLX LN2 and a 7950 GFX.
