AMD Bulldozer overclocked to 5.1GHz

You read that right. Oh and it was on air! No liquid nitrogen or hydrogen or whatever else they use in freezers. The guys who overclocked it go by the name CzechPCTuning on YouTube, I'm guessing they're the same people who were behind the Bulldozer benchmarks we saw yesterday. If it is them then we can speculate more, we know that the processor overclocked in the video above is the FX-8130P, so its very likely that that's the same CPU that was pitched against Sandy Bridge.

Editors Thoughts: Seems like the FX moniker lives up to its name in terms of overclocking ability, because 8 cores running at 5.1GHz on air is truly impressive.
