But he said on stock air cooling. I've seen screenshots of someone OCing their CPU to 7.9ghz... but their CPU was pretty much FROZEN with liquid nitrogen or something.


Seriously, if someone right now on EBAY was selling a Quad Core CPU that he/she claims can OC to 5ghz with stock cooling... who would believe it? I'm pretty sure nobody would buy it.

why settle for 5ghz, when you can have 12

Forget Dual Core, This is Dual Xeon Processors. Each processor shows as 2 processors. This means When you check the Task Manager Performance tab you will see 4 Processors! each at 3GHZ. 12GHZ
found this in an ebay auction

ROFL. If people believed the 5ghz on ebay.... depends on how much it sold for. If it sold for $700+ then yes I would sell it. Lets say I bought it for $300. Also depends on how many people want it, I'll be like Newegg... more demand = higher price. LMAO!! I'm a hypocrite!!
