yeah that guy has been working with ocing ES chips for a wile (engineering sample), better quality, unlocked multiplyers, and bet yet not available to the public

"Stable in BIOS shot" <-that's the kicker. ES's can POST at outragous speeds, but can they run windows? I haven't seen them THAT high, but still many can run a BIOS at 5Ghz+. Running a BIOS stably isn't a huge feat IMO. I'd like to see him POST that at least in 5Ghz dress.

See, he's not bound this way by memory. That IS good memory, but it's not pumping any data and is really only theoretical at this stage. It's just an empty clock. Once he shoves data down that pipe, he's going to find that the memory he's using doesn't like to be past 300Mhz.

Go through that thread (it's 8 pages long). He's got some impressive screenies from within Windows (over 9K memory bandwidth).

I tell you what, he's making OCZ RAM look incredible.

he says he can run memtest @ 6.6Ghz, and hes been in windows before @ 6.3Ghz with his 3.6, this was a couple of months ago

Ratfarts...firefox wasn't showing some of it last night. It just looked like one stinking BIOS shot. I now read it and that guy really DOES run it! I eat my words now. He's knocking on the 10K boarder on bandwidth. Holy shit batman...

I second that! OCZ should send him some marketing money for that thread. Or at least put him up on their site like Abit does for that Fatality kid.

That's a must read thread...

Now from what I read on that entire thread, the thing I liked the most on it though was that one of the posters were talking about working with current tech that is available on the market now, and working to providing stable OC's with that current equipment.

I'm really new to overclocking, but this topic really interests me. I'm wondering what's the highest STABLE overclock on a system is? Does anyone know?

Wow, that is some ungodly overclocking. This may sound noobish but, can he run any games? Overclocking is useless if he can't run any games.

I did a bit of research on this and found out that a couple of the people at Xtreme have some systems that are running 24/7 and have FX-55's running at 3.3 ghz, with 2001 benchmarks in the 15,000 range. That's some pretty extreme everyday usage.
One of the other guys is running an Intel processor near the 5 ghz range every day as well.

I'd say that some pretty extreme use. I'd say it's not far off that they'll be able to break this with the advent of newer CPU chips, and newer tech made available.

If he's not a gamer why would he care about running games? sheesh, talk about narrow minded... Overclocking is a hobby, and at this level, it's all about benchmark scores, not playing games. It's the other way around, playing games on machine like this is useless, games hardly benefit from such overclocks, it makes more sense to use the cpu power for productive tasks...

Anyway, these experiments don't last long enough to actually "do" anything other then run benchmarks and tests...
