Sandy Bridge overclocks to 5.2GHz?

Facebook is occasionally a wonderful thing. Gigabyte employee and extreme performance guru, Hi Cookie, posted a rather interesting and cryptic message today on the book of faces, claiming,

'Air cooling 4C/8T 3Dmark vantage Pass by 5.2GHz, hmm...interesting ^^'

The replies immediately alluded to and assumed Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs, as a "SuperPi sub 7 on air" would smash the current world leader on HWBot.

At this stage it's worth noting that nothing has been confirmed by Gigabyte, the Facebook post merely states that something has been overclocked to 5.2GHz and that it rips through SuperPi.

However, given that the GO OC competition is over and Gigabyte, like other motherboard companies, will be beavering away at optimising their LGA1155 motherboards ready for launch, things do certainly point in the Sandy Bridge direction.

Feel free to see the thread below, and chirp in with your own thoughts on the forums.
