I can't see where the link mentions the proc running on air, even after translating.

Intel even overclocked the i7 2600k to 5.0ghz on air, it's not going to sizzle, especially if it ran stable through tests.

And yet, I still can't max out my Core 975 eXtreme proc....

 

At this rate, the day my CPU become a bottleneck, I will be old and gray.

And how much did that cost you?

"That's a nice bump over the chip's stock 2.5GHz clockspeed."

"In addition to running at 3.5GHz stock, the Core i7 2700K..."

So...which one is it?

3.5GHz

I had my i5 2500k at over 4.5 on air before no issues.  I just don't like how much heat it produces :(  If this new 2700K can hit 6 or 7, it mght be worth the upgrade finally.

Also:  you say the chip is stock at both 2.5Ghz and 3.5Ghz.  Which is it?  I could look it up, but I'm lazy~

Any word on how hot the chip was running at that speed?
