5.0 GHz Sandy Bridge On Air!

Oh this is a duzzie!

CES 2011: Maingear, Origin PC add Intel Core i7-2600K CPU overclocked to 5GHz to their gaming desktops



Quote:
Both Maingear and Origin PC have announced that their gaming desktops will feature the new CPU, and both have tweaked it to 5GHz for select systems.

While Maingear is updating its whole desktop lineup to the new Sandy Bridge chips, performance fans will want to look for units that offer the i7-2600K running at that magic 5GHz threshold. The company put the processor through its paces at 4.8GHz, and it provided 37% faster 3D rendering, 36% faster CPU video encoding and 24% overall system performance over the stock 3.4GHz version, so 5GHz will provide even more oomph. Maingear desktops using these latest processors will be available starting on January 9.
Oh Yeah - Jan 9th! COME ON!

I don't know about you guys, but rocking 5.0 GHz Sandy Bridge chip on air sounds might fun to me...

The article is a great read guys, just thought I should re-post here too in the Intel CPU forums..
