And here is AwardFabrik Review - cost me half a night to get it up ^^ http://www.awardfabrik.de/prozessoren/intel-core-i7-980x-gulftown-gegen-i7-920.html Compared to other Reviews my Q3QP seems to be ok - 4 GHZ with less than 1.25V :)

Belgium Massman says:

Just went through all 400 980X submissions and they should all be changed to 'points' now.

That's pretty much how it looks right now.

6GHz PiFast vs... 6.6GHz+ PiFast.
5.8G or so Vantage vs... 6.3G+ :p
