ROFL@ AMD in general. Sorry to those who like it, but it's only good at this point because of the pricing.

Well if you look at the very first pic, CPU-Z is reading a vcore of 1.35 at stock...so quite a bit higher than the stock intel vcores

heh....you make it sound like it's somehow inferior because it's cheaper: "it's only good at this point because of the pricing" what?

I mean unless you WANT to have an Intel monopoly on the high-performance/OC lover/etc. market and you want to spend loads of cash....then go for it! I, on the other hand, love competition...which not only drive prices down but also makes the companies strive for innovation.

They're much better than the stock Intel coolers, to say the least

As much awesomeness as this suggests, I'm still a bit skeptical. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have that be true (4ghz 45c load temp on stock air???? ) but it seems too good to be true. Any links to back this up?

His forum name is "Deneb" making him the definition of AMD biased, i would suggest you take his advice or claims with a fatal amount of salt.

Err... Gentelment.

This is 4 Ghz on ALL FOUR CORES on an AMD!
And AMDs are made completely different from Intel chips. Not all fabrication processes are alike. AMDs have always started with a higher voltage... unless you talk of Prescott. Regradless, I am more interested to see what the arquitechture tweaks the k10.5 brings compared to the K10 and what this means compared to the Conroe and the Peyrins.
Just my two cents.
