Yeah Intel Tweeted that a 4970K hit 5.5 on "air". Turns out it was with a tray of LN2 sitting in front of the rad super cooling the air the rad was drawing thru it.

Still it was over all 4 cores so its still not too shabby and I think it bodes well for what these things are going to be able to do. Im going to wait for Tom and HardOCP's review before making the final decision but Im 90% sure this is the chip that makes me finally jump ship to Intel after about a decade of AMD fanboydom.
