Yeah.

But, stable? Anything below 5.0 is pretty much set and go, mutli being the only thing you change. Intel built some pretty good voltage tables into the chip so it picks decent volts for your multi.

Above 5.0, no one's really shooting for 24/7 stable, just the ability to bench with it, and yeah that is slightly more complicated but not anywhere near the level of x58 or god forbid we bring up s775.

Yeah...PcCI2iminal really busted out the extreme efforts to get that 2500 to high clocks
Okay, remember what I said about foot in mouth? Do you even know what that video is showing? Hint: Take a look at how many cores are running in CPU-Z. (For those that don't want to pause the video, it's TWO.)

We're really getting off on a tangent here, but the point I'm making isn't that getting a 5ghz+ frequency chip is worth the money, it's the voltage that is required to achieve that frequency that makes it worth the money.

Edit: I'm sorry if I sound like I'm being a jerk. I just get really irritated when numbers are thrown out and made to be inconsequential.

How would one pre-overclock a CPU without a motherboard? And even if you could, why would you do that on a 2600k, which has an unlocked multiplier. And why for nearly 25% more than the retail price?

Why are you paying premium for a gtx 570? If you willing to pay that kind of money, you should just get a brand new gtx 580 for $50 more

No, I don't know anything, please explain it all to me. Please show me your proof of the last time you saw a dead chip from too much voltage.


PcCI2iminal clearly doesn't know anything about SB chips, and what the common multipliers are...

I mean, when you go through a hand binning process like this...



Surely you don't see any sort of trend form in the common Multi's of SB

I have to be honest, I don't know what your angle is here. First you spout off how easy it is to reach 5.0Ghz at 1.4v, then how 5.5-5.6Ghz is the norm, and finally show me a video of some guy overclocking a cpu to 5.6Ghz on two cores with a San Ace modified cooler at 1.55vcore. 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
