We’ve all seen those stunning bnechmark around of Conroe at 3GHz, or perhaps even 3.8GHz, but at Dreamhack Summer 2006, two hardcore overclocks managed to get the E6700 upto 4.95GHz!

Using a cascade at 4.73GHz they demolished the current 3D Mark ’05 WR with an unvelievable score of 26,278, over 6000 more than the current record.

DreamHack Summer 2006 has come to and end and most of us from NordicHardware has just arrived at home or are on the verge of it at least. Some of the people who kept going to the very last minute at DH in NordicHardware’s booth was Crotale which seemed impossible to separate from their bench system, which actually didn’t receive its final ingredients until Monday evening, an Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 and a cooler ambience after moving into Elmia’s C hall.
