Gigatel, it would be best that you inform yourself on "stress-testing" before you post any further. The OCN community, whenever we reach any validity in our overclocks, show full stability by ensuring our stress tests are under 100% load, meaning, much like how Samsung ensures their products are during benchmark purposes, showing the true power of the chip, that all cores remain under 100% load and in a ready state for active calls. Their cache is fully loaded, etc. This is all key to valid bench mark tests for stability purposes. The moment they show signs of of the CPU going into an "idle" state, it's a sure sign of the chip's instability. This is normal, even under "high performance mode" in your power settings. This has been common knowledge for decades.

It is not cheating. Under your logic, running Prime95, under any processor, is considered cheating, as the chip is forced to run in a state that forces the CPU to run under 100% load while being constantly active. Since linpak would record performance values, there is no difference. I guess stress test software is now "cheating" us as well as they do the exact same thing. Kudos to Samsung in order to maintain chips stability at such high clock rates though. Would be interesting to see other companies do the same.
...but then again, benchmarks don't reflect real world performance. So why are people arguing over non-sense and stirring up the community for more Apple-Vs-The World hate is just petty non-sense. OCN should start introducing a public voting option to have threads closed so that we don't go down flamebaits and threadwars over and over again.
