Default FX-55 Running Stabley at 4.1GHz!!!!!!

Yes, you heard me right! One of my mates managed to get an FX-55 through his dad's company, and for some reason it started at 3.2GHz or around there. He says this is because it is the company version direct from AMD, therefore they are more expensive but much faster.

With lots of fans and a couple of these special kit things, but without any water, dry ice, liquid nitrogen or anything like that he managed to get the FX up to 4.2GHz, but it wouldn't run. Couple of tweaks, and it was running stabley at 4.1GHz. I wish I had one!

On air? I find that difficult to believe. It took AMD a long time to push 2.6GHz out of Clawhammer for a reason. There's just no way, especially without water cooling. The processor just can't do that. 3.2GHz is stretching it far beyond the limits. I would need the most solid proof to actually back that up. Just no.
