There is no way that CPU cooler is worth 30 bucks... I am just wondering if they usually makes worse binned chips the OEM version? or is it purely because they have more chips than CPU coolers... lol

OEM simply means it is not in any pretty packaging (no pretty box, no pretty menu, and no cooler). That is how they cut off $30.

They definitely dont have more coolers than chips. AMD and global foundries have been having problems with chip yields. Thats for sure.

That seems like a really good deal to me for some reason... I wouldnt use the stock heatsinkfan anyway...

I dont think anyone uses the stock fan. They should just ship them out with the water cooler or nothing at all. Bottom line. It would be really nice if AMD shipped all their BD out with water coolers. If someone wanted their own cooling unit like most do then ship it without a cooler. That stock heatsink and fan is a joke. Even if it was twice as big with a 120mm fan it still wouldnt work well.

@mikezachlowe2004

it looks like you know more about the vrm phase power more than anyone, im a total ignorant about it, how is the vrm phase power on a Asus M5A97 EVO?

I currently have a m5a87 and it pretty sucks for oc and it throttles on OC with my FX8120 on stock settings, do you think the m5a97 is going to help me out, or at least is going to be an improvement? I dont have the money right now to go and waste $200 more on crosshair V or sabertooth 990FX

what motherboard would you recommend on asus brand?

Ohh another thing, you guys mention that the stock speeds of the NB and HT are CPU/NB - 2200Mhz and HT Link - 2600Mhz.

This is weird bc when I go to my bios settings I put everything on manual but I cant set my HT speed to go hight than my NB speed, evertime I change the speed of my NB to 2400, the max speed I get on HT is 2400, anyone knows why?

PS: yeah I just checked, If I change my NB speed, the HT Speed changes automatically to the value of the speed of my NB, I cant set my HT highter than my NB.
