Where other things would break before the VRM would.
And I'm posting you dont have to pay 400 for a card with proper VRMs.

And I'm posting that it has to have UNBREAKABLE vrms.
But I thought all 570's had problems with vrms so thanks

In our experience, fewer than 1 in 10 chips will reach 4.3 GHz, and only 1 in 20 will reach 5.1
Haha, sounds like they are not very experienced then, I've seen 2500k's reach 5ghz on 1.34v's, and others that will boot with a 59x multi...

I wouldn't buy the CPU for the premium they are asking, it's no where near worth that price...

The 2600k's are supposed to be better clockers then the 2500k was my point...

Your buying a CPU specifically for a badly ported console game?

cant guarantee the chip will do the claimed clocks, because you still have to take into consideration the problems you might run into with different mobos. Atleast that is what I believe... then there is the cooling for something @ 1.5v....gonna need some nice cooling for that.

That's pretty rare though.

It's sad that scam artists like this even exist. 1.51 is a pretty high overclock, but I wouldn't trust a source such as ebay personally. For the folks that keep stating how easy it is to hit 5Ghz+, they really should check out the 5Ghz club thread and see how high voltages really are to achieve that frequency with normal non-binned chips. Voltages I've seen tend to extend well into the 1.5v range (My old MSI motherboard required 1.55v!) and only those with "golden" chips have been seeing sub 1.4 volts to reach that barrier and above.

I have a feeling that a lot of people would pay extra to know they have a binned chip in their motherboard. How many folks have bought into the Costa Rica myth, or purchase certain video cards because the manufacturer states the gpu chip is binned?

Yes I am.
And no its not.

Just because it needs nuts ammount of cpu power for the aa and that its not an aa engine (like unreal) and its cpu requirements for the pathfinding?

Its a good game. Written well.

Now fallout new vegas; THAT is a console port.
