AMD is only making me more angry and impatient. I'm sure atleast a handful of these overclockers could have been processing orders instead of goofing off with crap 1 percent of the potential customer base will ever do or actually care about. If you can break records with it, why don't I have one? Intel is looking better and better considering that AMD doesn't have one GEN 3 board available yet they are screwing around with this stuff.

Agreed. I'm starting to think that along with crushing past clock records, AMD is trying to break the current record for most production delays.

It doesn't matter how awesome your processor is if no one can buy it.

Sooooo, when can we expect liquid nitrogen coolers to hit the market?

Probably before Bulldozer releases it's desktop CPUs

Holy shit! Now only if software could catch up to hardware.

Whats with the bullshit overlay?

Without even seeing the video, the initial screenshot shows the guy cupping his hand to prevent liquid helium from spilling onto the motherboard should it occur...

As stupid as I sound, I wanna see how it compares with Sandy Bridge in real-world applications

You are right, after all, this is the only thing that's matter to end user. I want to play game and run application on the fly. Not living like Mr. Freeze in my room with all these nitrogen. I have high hope for AMD, otherwise, I would have gotten Sandybridge this summer.

Don't get me wrong, 8.4GHz is awesome, and I'd love to have that kind of stable speed right now, but if there's no real gain for me in my games, then there's no reason for me to be excited
