Appraisal: i7-3770K does 5 GHz at 1.2 V and 5.25 GHz at 1.3 V - Page 2

Thanks for suggestions everyone, especially those with well thought our responses thumb.gif Much appreciated!

I must point out though because it's clear some people were not listening - these chips are £260 NEW IN THE UK. THAT IS $400 on conversion. So if you can get one for $230 new over there, good for you. It doesn't make the slightest bit of sense for me to sell it for anything less than $400, I might as well keep it. Especially as it'd be a beast of a daily chip compared to my previous two Malays that struggle to get 5G at 1.4 V+.

Someone will pay $550, you may just have to wait a bit to find that person. Oh, and make sure you have solid proof that the chip does what you say.

I would take no less than 350 GBP. This chip is an amazing clocker if you can prove it stable at those speeds.

Ok of this Chip could do 5GHz on 4c8t then you would have a super good Chip. A Chip doing 5GHz on 1 or 2 cores doesn't mean it's a super good Chip. Id say it's worth about $280 shipped usd. Now of you can run it like mine at 5.1GHz on air 24/7 am bench stable then id give $340+ for it.

The higher retail pricing you have to pay for your chip makes your statement about having to get at least $400 for it valid, but at the same time, it doesn't make the statement from someone on this side of the pond about how much they would be willing to pay any less valid.

You will probably need to sell your chip in the UK in order to get top money, as a buyer there will be accustomed to the initial higher starting point.

May be surprising to know that this is obvious. However in an appraisal thread telling the to-be seller that is clearly trying to make a profit on a good find that they wouldn't buy it for any more than the original cost of the chip is a swift kick in the teeth, to which I'd much rather have the response "I'd rather take my chances on a new one than pay the minimum what you are asking."

There are two crowds at play - overclockers who might want to see the potential in the chip, or users who want a nice chip with a low VID in a daily rig. Having seen that the top 6.8-6.94 GHz chips sell upwards of $800, there is a market. I understand that as I've not tested cold, then that price range is out the window sure. But in these circles the gold test advertised is usually voltage at which Spi 32m is stable on 2C/2T, which anything 1.2V below seems to be a 1 in 5000 find. So either bin some chips, or spend a little more on some chips that have half-way proven themselves.

So if you want a chip off the shelf because it's cheaper, go ahead, but when I've stated that anything below $400 is preposterous from my end, there really is no point in quoting $350 at me; I'd rather keep it than lose $50 from a simple buy/sell scenario. In the meantime, here's a car for $200k that I'll sell to you for $50k because they're cheaper over there and I want to lose $150k this second. /sarcasm

Many thanks to all in the thread for providing input. It seems like $530/£350 might be a bit of a push but eventually someone might take it at that thumb.gif

On the flip side, let me pay you 200K for a car that I can buy here for $50K, because it cost you more to buy it where you live than it costs here...that doesn't make a whole lot of sense either, does it?

My point was simply that you asked for an appraisal. The fella gave you one based on what he felt it was worth to him, where he is situated. Just because it didn't suit you doesn't mean that it wasn't valid.

Substantiation aside (you can address that if and when you list it), the specs on your chip are above average so I understand why you wouldn't want to give it away. At the same time you can't ignore that your higher starting cost point is something that you are going to have to eat if you're going to sell it on this side of the pond. On your side of the pond a potential buyer is going to be comparing your asking price to the options that he has available to him.

There are two markets here and pointing it out was the sole purpose of my post. You need to decide which market you want to sell in and then price accordingly.

Also keep in mind that you are fast approaching end of "top shelf" status for this chip, as Haswell will soon impact its value. If you don't agree, see how much demand and premium a well-binned 2600K will draw these days.

Good luck to you if you decided to list it. Again, it is a very nice chip and I'm sure that you will no trouble selling it.

Having had access to Haswell since [NDA] I know this more than most thumb.gif
