Not when you've had a good look at what SB750 is doing for Phenom's, and add the fact that Phenom wasn't really designed for 65nm
3.4 to 4.0ghz is a big stretch... its a huge stretch actually..
i know running 3.4 ghz in a quad was cake walk... but once you get to 3.8-4.0.. you need to pump some serious volts..
and not only that apok..
that sb whatever board is the only board that overclocks right??
you can pick up just about any p35 and take a quad to 3.6ghz....
every intel mid range board will take you to a high oc with a q series cpu
in terms of clock speeds... and things that matter in life... unpacking, zipping, converting... the intel core 2 quads eat up the phenoms
and i've been checking for phenom overclocks on xs plenty of times... and let me tell you, there are not alot of success stories..
and not only that... most amd's have a horrible cold bug and wno't budge on LN2... so it won't be taking no records anytime soon
if phenom was so great.... there would much much more news going on about it.... but there isnt
now i'm not saying its a bad cpu... not at all,it holds its own.... but in a world of overclocking... forget it
