2nd: batch:3215B645 which can achive 4.8 and he didnt push any further
Which will be a better option? Or should i just go and pick a brand new one?
Depends on the prices being offered to you and what voltage the second one took to achieve 4.8.
If he got it to 4.8 at 1.3v or less then I'd buy it for sure.
I don't know whether or not to believe that a person who bought a K series chip never tried oc'ing it, especially if it was a custom build they did.
Think about it, if the K series chip is bad and he wants to sell it and recoup his loss, of course he's probably going to plead ignorance about its OC quality.
