Default Overclocking Intel's Core i5-661

Purchasing a new CPU today that doesn't overclock well just doesn't happen, and Intel's Clarkdales don't change a thing. As a dual-core, these new models are even easier to overclock than the quads, making the OC'ing appeal even greater. We're taking a look at overclocking the Core i5-661, focusing on both the CPU and GPU.

You can read our full OC'ing report here and discuss it here.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

Default Great Article!

I read your article and purchased an i5 650 which was easily overclocked to 4.38GHz! Overall, I think these are probably the best Dual-Cores that have ever been produced.
