I7 965 and 975 are rubbish processors. Overclocker like crap


965, yeah... It was a C0 chip. The 975s are D0 and overclock very well for Bloomfield. They should do 4.2-4.5GHz for 24/7 with no issue. They don't do the 4.7-5GHz that we see today with Ivy, but they're not bad by any means.

I7 975 XE are clocking really nicely, but need high vcore;) But 1,4 for 4,2 seems me too high. And the Giga X58 UD Series are no good to clock Chips good, especially uncore:D
