Last night he was up to 4.5GHz OCCT stable for 5h on water.

Today he says he's up to 4.9GHz and will get a screenshot when he gets home from work.

the E0s is looking good from several reviews I've seen online so far. Looks like a winner.

Q9550 (some), Q9650, E7300. I've heard there is a new QX9650 E0 as well.

I ordered this with a DFI Bloodiron.

Anyone know if I'm going to need a BIOS flash to get the e8600 to run with it? Does the new stepping usually require a flash? it will be annoying because i dont have a spare floppy disk drive...

My board would boot the E0 Q9550 w/o an update, but it was not stable in windows until I flashed the BIOS.
