Well If AMD had the specs wrong, then that might explain why the chips OC so easy, their default vcore from the factory are all set .05V more then they needed to be. <grin>.
Here's a response I got from Charlie @ the INQ.

They put out a spec that says that CPUs must consume X or less power, run between A and B voltage, and do the following things. As long as the CPU varies stays on those specs, they can put out what they want, and
it looks like they are doing just that.
This is pretty stupid mind you, at least not to include a note saying 'this is different, but it will work'. As long as you can plug it in without a problem, I would classify it as a curiosity.
The difference is probably due to the new SOI sauce they are slowly
Hmmmmmm Maybe these chips are like fine wine and get better with age!
