My System Specs

Oh crap. Goes head to head with AMD's Black Edition CPUs. Anyone here regretting getting a Thuban? If I was in that position, I wouldn't have many regrets as I'm fine with overclocking using the BCLK. It's not like the unlocked multiplier brings in a much higher overclock than the CPUs with locked multipliers.

^ That's a huge jump in power consumption... But then these are engineering samples. I hope the retail ones will be better.

@sswilson. That's true. But $40 premium for the unlocked multiplier... How well does the locked multiplier Clarkdales with the new stepping overclock?
