Although it is far from orthodox and practical I took the system outside and onto the patio for the rest of the time I spent overclocking it. St. Louis just had a huge ice storm and with about 3 inches of clear ice on the patio and plenty of snow I figured the nice below freezing temperatures would be the best way to cool AMD's Quad FX platform.

I feel it's safe to say that a pair of FX-74 processors and the ASUS L1N64-SLI WS motherboard are pretty uneventful overclockers.
LMAO
Just put the *cough, cough* in a damn freezer.

Maybe we can teach the NooB reviewer how to cool those suckers down


I will say, If 3.2 is all those chips can do, I am sorely dissapointed in AMD.

Except that the stock cooling design is much better than Intel's.

Heck, that guy even took the Quad FX system outside into freezing weather and it still didnt make a difference.

Its called 65nm AMD, 65nm. Youve got the technology. Use it.

my P4 940 ran 61c idle and 84c load with stock cooling. With AS5.

Uhh..

Do the words AMD, 3.0 stock, and 3.2 ghz on air mean anything? lol. The board could just be a dud on OC'ing, but for it to be at 3.2 ghz on air is still a feat.

I think AMD isn't going to be able to compete with Intel this round.
They're trowing out chips like we drink water.....
And Intel's stock HSF is crap, it's round , and it's fan is great to loose fingers!

Oh. Well it didnt help him with an overclock, just helped with temps. My question is why didnt he try different multi's since the bus didnt like oc'ing, and if he did its not that great of a review, not very comprehensive and in depth.

when the 4x4 was released there was a few people that tried overclocking them with no success. at least this guy brought it past 200 MHz HTT
