    Awww the poor 580 :)

    Impressive overclock but obviously no chance of us getting speeds like that at home!

    Wonder if 7GHz fixes the stuttering in COD Black Ops...

    91fps in an gtx480 16x aa, no lag

    i7 3.8 ht off last time testing (test with it back on see if any stuttering still the game does support muticore and ht as well)

    could someone work out how fast 7ghz is in mph?

    7x10E9 x 45 x10E-9 = 315 m/s
    (315 *602) = 1134000 m/h
    1134000 / 1000 = 1134 km/h
    (1134 / 8) * 5 = 708.75 MPH
    roughly as conversion to mph isn't exact.

    Not that there is any scientific basis for the above i just made it up.

    Yes 7GHz is fast, but can it make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?

    It's so powerful that it makes units of distance become units of time.

    6.944GHz is not 7GHz. The sorry should be entitled 'AMD Phenom nearly hits 7GHz but fails'...

    Or... 'AMD Phenom hits 7,1GHz, although slightly unstable '

    But I guess that might depend on which side of the fence you sit on ;-)

    what i don't get is how the 2nd highest overclock was another phenom II x4 at 6.5ghz, but why is it that i rarely hear about the chips reaching 4ghz on water cooling? and if i7 can reach 4.1ghz on air, then shouldn't it theoretically pass 7ghz when cooled with liquid nitrogen?

    Intel's chips no longer have high clock speed ceilings, mainly due to their architecture. Intel learned its lesson with Netburst (which I believe they predicted would scale to 12ghz, and was therefore designed with low ipc but high clock speed in mind), whereas i7 and core based chips simply can't handle those speeds.

    However, considering the current state of affairs, it's reasonable to presume that an i7 would not need to reach as high a speed to be competitive in terms of performance, so in reality it works itself out.
