Nordic Hardware felt obligated to continue their overclockings after DreamHack and here it comes. Kinc has pushed the X6800 over 5Ghz (5040MHz) and almost scored a 9 sec SuperPi 1M result.

"It took Kinc a few hours to get acquainted with the new BIOS and last night he managed to achieve the second score in the world with SuperPi 1M using a Conroe over 5GHz."
