Overclockers push 8-core Skulltrail to 6 GHz: Dual-socket overclocking confirmed

Submitted by: Fox k @ 01:47 PM | Thursday, April 17, 2008 | (url: http://www.tgdail...)

Las Vegas (NV) When Intel released its Skulltrail platform, the main focus of this extreme computing platform was on overclocking capabilities. Dual-socket motherboards traditionally have not been a prime target for overclocking anyway, so this was an interesting proposition from Intel anyway. Now we know that Skulltrail has lots of headroom.

Overclocking with advanced air-cooling can take Skulltrail from 3.2 GHz to 4 GHz. 4.5 GHz is reportedly manageable with a modest water-cooling system. Not surprisingly, there is a lot more capability in this platform if take an extreme Skulltrail a bit more extreme

I don't think the word "anyway" could have been used more in that description, anyway.
