However, this review is incomplete (as has been mentioned here over and over again).
1. Test max overclocks, after all, enthusiasts want as far as they can go (which is what they sorta did). However, I dare say less than 2% of SB chips are ran @5.2Ghz 24/7... also, BD reported even higher (~5.5Ghz) overclocks. It is only fair that they find such a BD OC out there and test with that if they really want to play with golden chips.
2. There is nothing wrong with testing with beyond-average OC's, however, the review will remain unbalanced until they include tests @ the same clocks...
We still need to realize that though this may not be reflective of the general gaming population, there do
exist enthusiasts with such setups which have to be catered for so ...
