Now after all this "norm" talk and how "easy" it is to reach these speeds, you show me a large stack of HAND BINNED
processors as if that lends any credibility to your argument. You are truly starting to confuse me here.
Why are we arguing in the first place? Don't we both agree that buying a "pre-overclocked" processor is a scam and waste of money? My issue is that there is some exaggeration on what normal is and isn't for Sandy Bridge.
Brah I never mentioned voltage brah, 5.0ghz is easy as pie on SB and that was all I ever tried to argue.
55x multi SB is hardly worth anything when I see the normal is 52-53-54 and those are throw away chips.
55x ain't gonna get you the WR and if it's not budging from 55x then it's no good brah.
Oh and Criminal hand binned them after that pile, he didn't buy a hand binned pile...which was my point that out of that batch of 30 (he had 5 more not pictured) they were mostly 52-54 multis
Yeah dawg we agree on that. My proc holds the WR but I didn't set it, that makes it slighty more valuable to me...mainly because I'm going to try and beat the previous owners WR this summer when I get my x58a-oc
