I personally don't trust it. The reason for this is that I used to get popups saying "Win This Computer." The was before I got the Google Toolbar If it is real though..... wow.

There was a review about them in Maximum PC awhile back, but I don't think it was about the 5ghz PC

Is that the new Vapochill case. If it is then WOW!!!! That is the ultimate overclocking case. it costs about $ 900, it keeps the cpu temperature at - 21 C.

But i do not beleive the 5Ghz part. Because the most overclocked ever is 5.25Ghz. And that computer used liquid nitrogen for cooling, at about - 200C. also the computer was not very stable.

Even the article for the Vapochill case says that it will overclock upto 4ghz to 4.3 Ghz......
