Phenom II runs Far Cry 2 at 5GHz+

Fuad Abazovic writes: "AMD has demonstrated that Deneb, Phenom II CPU, when cooled with LN2 can run stable at over 5GHz+ and run stable Far Cry 2 benchmark. This is a great score as the guys who were overlocking have said that this was the first time they seriously played with Deneb overclocking."

Great, did they fix the bug that doesn't allow RAM to run at 1066?

I know it's no big difference, but I bought some overclocked RAM that came with a fan and all. Turned out the Phenom freaks out if you try and overclock the RAM. Stupid me, shoulda done some homework.

I mean come on. Lets try something more practical to the average gamer. Like watercooling or good air cooling. Im not gonna fool with liquid nitrogen and neither is 99% of the gaming community. I remember they did a q6600 with liquid nitrogen and got it to 5ghz.

But Intel's Core i7 are owning AMD's best. Yet again.

I would rather pay alot less for a phenom X4 9950, (which can handle alot) then a Intel core i7. Yes the intel core i7 is impressive but not worth the price tag. Esspecially if you want to build a gaming rig. I would deff go with AMD and a ATI card, since they go well with bios. But this of course is my opinion.
