    Re: AMD - Bulldozer Chitchat

    HardOCP has an article on the contest:

    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...ocking_preview

    "I personally left the event feeling more positive about the upcoming FX than I have in a long time. While we can't tell you about actual performance and IPC, we can show you what the CPU is capable of in the hands of some very skilled overclockers."

    If you already have samples in the lab it seems a strange statement to make. Most review websites will have at least a decent water or air cooler for overclocking tests,so why should the results make them feel differently about something they could do themselves??

    BTW,have you upgraded to a new rig???

    Watercooled on Aria is always changing stuff out.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    BTW,in the previous link, Movieman who is a well known xs member AFAIK says he has seen benches of Bulldozer CPUs and it looks decent.
