Yep, I'm still waiting on Sin's overclocking guide. There's a few new (and old...like uncore) knobs in the new BIOS....and Gigabyte has done things a little different than Asus and the others, so I will wait before I do much tweaking.
I've done enough to confirm that yet once again I did not win the cpu lottery in terms of performance....so I'm pretty sure a delid will be in the future.
I read some of the papers from the IDF conference and it's pretty amazing what they are doing with cpu technology these days. I don't pretend to understand all of it, but sin0822 has some further explanations on his site sinhardware.com with a look from an engineer's point of view.
