i7-920 – SingleStage 32M testing

While all the guys around there are working on the new Sandy Bitch stuff I’m still stucking with my old bloomfield setup.
When something new come out I’m always a bit reluctant at the idea of buying without knowing everything about it, Sandy Bitch is freakin’ fast clock to clock but also have alot of downsides – just for example: no BCLKclocking, Elpida Hyper act weird with most CPU/mobo, 3dmark 01 gives strange results with everything except Gigabyte board and much more…
– Back on topic – There’s not alot to say here, I did just a really quick run that end up with an interesting result.

* the benchmark is always the same Super-PI 32M *

That’s all for now, in the near future I would like to retest this CPU at LN2, hopefully I will get good results.
On a side note: I’m just wondering where are all the guys that posted 5.5+ GHZ CPUZ shots on the Bot.
CPUZ shots are lame stuff, we are all able to test a shit load of CPUs and find the golden one but looks like that only a bunch of guys can use it to bench some real benchmarks…
