I'm not sure what to explain here...you are on the same page as me...why would some one want a 50x multi verse a 55 or higher, let alone "pay extra" for a "guaranteed" 50x? 55-56 is the "norm" for SB, when you get to 57-58 and even 59's are surfacing now, that is when SB becomes special. SB takes minimal effort to OC, people only use sub-zero temps to keep their chip alive longer, previously epic Hz can be reached on ambient cooling solutions.

Oh. Now I get it.

Why not make a OE that runs at 4 because everyone can reach that.
Same reason high performance car manufactures don't manufacture cars with extremely high HP, despite knowing they know they can reach those numbers with aftermarke.

I'm not sure where you live, but like NuclearCrap said, just buy a 2600K and have fun yourself. There isn't much to OC'ing SB, so having some one tell you the max multi it's capable of is ruining pretty much all the fun of OC'ing it.

Even then, id rather have the fun of finding out for myself and saving the moolah...
I agree, I personally enjoy finding the limits of my hardware, but I just want to correct folks that keep thinking Sandy Bridge is an automatic 5Ghz+ without any sort of effort or proper hardware. I would definitely buy a chip that does 5Ghz at 1.35v for an extra 100 dollars over retail if it was from a legitimate source.

55-56 multi's are the "norm"??

You do realize that the folks seeing overclocks of 5.7Ghz+ are doing so on binned chips with LN2, right? While I do agree that paying extra just for 5.0Ghz is a bit on the silly side, it's the voltage to reach that 5Ghz that matters. You might want to head over to hwbot.org and do some actual research before putting your foot in your mouth.

Yeah...PcCI2iminal really busted out the extreme efforts to get that 2500 to high clocks

He is right, chips may very well boot on these numbers, and you can find what the max multi of a 'k' series that way, taking the time/effort/understanding you need to have of OC'ing to make it stable at those clocks is another story entirely...
