"The CPU was ticking at 8429.38MHz (271.92x31) at 2.016V and overclocking was done on Asus' Crosshair V Formula motherboard with 2GB of Corsair RAM. Of course, we are talking about high-level overclocking with liquid helium, which isn't quite your ordinary overclocking material. The record was scored back on August 31st but AMD managed to keep it a secret and "decided" to break the news today. Of course, the overclocking was done on an engineering sample and we are yet to see those CPUs in stores. October is the date we keep hearing, at least for now. You can check out the video below and find more info here."

I love how they always set these records but then never score well in benchmarks. Half the time they barely make it past boot in these record runs.
