for sandy bridge it's all luck and draw. unlike previous generations batch number has no part in getting a good SB chip. two chips of the same batch might vary alot in term of achievable frequency. you might reach 5.4 on one, while hitting a 5.1 wall on the other.

Nowdays people get 6 chips for example and test all of them with an OC profile/. They pick the best, and sell the rest.

It's pure luck. I myself tasted that bitterness. my friends 2600 got to 5.5 on air. I got two chips of the same batch and both had a 5.1 wall. Quite frustrating if you ask me ^^

you sure?i saw a guide from another website that tells you how to pick a good i7[regular one]with reading the batch code on the box for example batch code is "3844A759"
number 8 means the year of making the cpu.
number 44 means what week they made the cpu
number 759 means the number of your cpu.

well, I too have heard that the by estimating the build date you can get good chip. Certain built dates are better. But my personal experience proved otherwise. I always vote for practicality, and personal experience. Guides are good to some extent but they are usually subjective as well. Besides, its not just me. Tons of other people have had the same issue with this batch numbers, and got frustrated. thats why i say its luck.

Get your friend to give two CPU of the same batch, then test it and see for yourself.

You should check out the for sale section. There are a few members who buy i7 2600Ks and will tell you roughly what they'll do.

why are you getting a 2600k. You should save the money get the 2500k, they O.C better with less voltage. See intel says don't go over 1.375 volts, and if you get a good 2500k you could get 4.8ghz under, with a air cooler. Check out ebay they have some tested oc 2500k&2600k chips. Other wise its a bit of a random out come...

I prefer 2600k because it has more threads..if intel says dont go with 1.375 so how the hell people put in voltage 1.5V and they get perfect temp on air?...anyways i cannot pay for 2 cpus i dont have enough money for 2 so thats why i need a way how to check a good batch codes.
