...you got your 3200+ to the performance of a 4.2GHz, not an actual 4.2GHz right?
comparing actual overclocking, going from 3.4GHz - 4.1GHz is a much bigger overclock than 3200+ "speeds" - ~4.2GHz "speeds". He got a 700MHz overclock, on your AMD it would only take like 500MHz or so i imagine.
Not to mention the guy doing 7.2GHz is only POST screen stable, he cant even load Windows from what i have seen of it. And hes got insane cooling. I would say a 700MHz overclock with a Prescott (HOT!) chip on straight air cooling is very "extreme". Most people would at least need water cooling.
