This was not the "who can get the most stable overclock using only air cooling and make the CPU last 500 years of 'regular use' contest"... This was a "who could overclock the most using "fancy cooling' with it being just barley stable enough to post the fastest scores before their CPU melted down "OVERDRIVE" contest"..if they used some kind of fancy cooling set up then this is really not that great. how many people can really afford to cool their systems for every day use? not many. we need to see more test done an system that people can afford
This competition was not to determine "the potential of a certain cpu", the purpose of this competition is to see which overclocking team is better than the other. Stop being such a pantywaste.so what's the point? if someone wants to know the potential of a certain cpu it would be much easier to just call the company that made it and ask them. i am sure that intel and amd perform such tests in their labs. at least you think that they would. oh well, such a waste.
