uhhhh. 3.9 and 4.0 are pretty close to the same, wouldn't you say?
and if the 6700 are getting 4.0 easily, what is their ceiling?
but that is not the everyday overclocker, either. whats the limit for joe blow the ameteur?
check out this link:
THE OVERCLOCKING WORLD RECORD DATABASE
119 mhz difference.
x6800 is almost 600mhz higher, so i can see the benefit if you are going for records. but i cant see the bebefit of the LOAD of extra money.
i wonder if that 5.5 6700 is stable or if it bsods?
i HIGHLY doubt that it is stable, which pretty much (for me anyway) negates it having the world record for overclocks...
if it isn't stable, whats the use? super pi? lol
