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?

Just my
Agreed it's rare, but that's the only reason I would pay more then the retail price was if a 2500k(2600k in this instance) could do 5ghz on sub 1.4v...

Even then, id rather have the fun of finding out for myself and saving the moolah...

50x multi on SB? That's nothing lol... 55x and 56x are the usual that I see because no one wants those.

I'm not sure how to respond to just a question mark and a period. But thanks for the response.

I did report the seller to ebay. The item is fradulent because there is no such thing as a "turbo Charged" i7 CPU. its pure false advertising. The image of the CPU is even altered to show the words "turbo Charged" on it.

There's no harm trying out an unknown quantity from the store. In the end, you're pretty much guaranteed at least 4.5 GHz well within safe limits from what I've seen. I took a leap of faith myself and ended up with a decent chip (5 GHz w/ HT @ 1.42V). Not knowing the multiplier at a certain voltage is the only fun left in overclocking when it comes to Sandy Bridge, and personally I wouldn't want to spoil that.

Remove the "?" and "possibly" and you've got yourself a quality post there, son.

This man speaks the truff. But 2500k's have the record right now, and I've gotten to 4.8 with no adjustments besides Multi (everything else on Auto). It's my friends system I built him, and I brought a 580 over to bench with a little...there's just no beating SB on a budget and lazy/easiness scale.
