Nice!!!

Yeah I haven't gotten into watercooling. I guess I'll never go that high to need it.

I am a little disappointed that mine can't even get close with 1.5V...

I'd say that 4500 counts as close in this case.

He has a i7-2600K. It makes life a lot easier over a i5-2500K. Also chip bin matters - looks like he got one that can do a lot on low voltages. Lucky @ss

I was reading a post where this one guy got a i7-950 chip that could do 4.2gig on 1.2volts. I can't even get mine to do 3.8 on that (not stable)

Just the luck of the draw.

True, but a little disappointing. I am happy with what I have though.

Just one of those things. I've seen other Q9550s running at 3.8GHz on a lower voltage than mine. Annoying, I know

They obviously just need to let us exchange them until we are happy with one
