I really doint care about the 3DMark scores and stuff like that. I meant as in how they perform in multi-tasking and gaming and such against the other decent CPUs. thnx though.

That's precisely the reason I dind't include them. I'm hoping if more people manage to get these kinds of overclocks we'll see some more meaningful numbers soon enough. Although personally I think I'll be skipping this processor for Shanghai.

Yea, when the 9850 came out some similar clocking review was posted but then not alot of people even got close to it. Hopefully this time all the 9950 are capable of this. good find though, rep+.

I can believe this with stock cooling. There are many socket 939 rigs here running 1.5v 1.6v and not breaking 65c-67c on aircooling. I know those chips put out some heat. This is far from a "suicide" run. If you look at the original page there are many screens of the steps taken to reach 3.5Ghz.

Patience my friend, patience. I might get one of the 45nm versions.

Belated note : The performance on K10 is really starting to ship up, as well as overclocking. Can't wait to grab a true high performance native quad.

If this clock is true than it is superb, but there is no way it was achieved with the stock HSF unless it had a floor fan blowing chilled air on it.

I say that from my own experience. On the stock HSF a clock of 2.9ghz and 1.30 volts resulted in temps over 60+ degrees C. I have 3 120mm fans and a 80mm fan blowing air in / out respectively. Take it to 3.5ghz with 1.45 volts... you get the picture.

There was definitely some cooling going on beyond what AMD provides.
