Does anyone know why it's claimed that water cooling gets better results on high leakage chips? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
So the question here is does high leakage chips perform better than low leakage chips with high end cooling? Well AMDs FX8350 world record for highest overclock is 8.64GHz, meanwhile Intels i7-3930k's record overclock is8.7GHz. When were talking about a difference between 60MHz its hard to say one is inherently superior.

Both of these records were accomplished using liquid nitrogen though, and on is an 8core while one is a 4 core so its hard to say if a 4core Piledriver would beat the 4core Intel.

Yes, that's the question, but I'm certain it's a meaningless comparison on two different architectures - and even process nodes!

Well don't expect to find a high leakage chip, and a low leakage chip comparison using the same architecture. biggrin.gif
