yeah you read that before internal pll voltage was discovered on intel boards. asus/msi/gigabyte have now updated their bios w/ this option and a lot of chips are hitting 5ghz avg is probably 4.8ghz. also the retail d2 steppings are claimed to be better overclockers than the sample chips according to people who tested early d1/es steppings.
