    4.3 GHz is quite interesting, my 940 will not go over 3.9 GHz no matter what. 700 MHz over the initial phenom II is pretty good progress too, we can only hope Bulldozer does the same.

    With quite high voltage around 4.5GHZ is attainable too:

    Hm yeah that's not bad actually, I believe 1.55 is the "orange" zone in terms of voltage for the cpu.

    Your Scan link (price history etc) goes to an X4 840 rather than a 980.

    Thought £78 sounded like a good deal!

    What was special about new years eve?
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
