I don't see a problem with that considering I can cinebench it and prime 32m at 1.31. So I'm guessing prime95 and ibt stable will be somewhere around 1.36 or 1.38 tops.

It scales well. So does being golden add any monetary value to it? Like if I decided to go socket 2011 down the road, I wanna be sure to get a fair price.

Definitely. I'm not an expert on specific prices, but you should be able to get a lot more for that than for the average 3770k.

Thanks for the replys guys. I think we are done here. I was skeptical this whole time, but After going over it extensively, testing and verifying vcore, I have a golden 3770K.

I have been plagued with crap OCer's for a long time, so this is a nice breath of fresh air. I think I will start an appraisal thread just to get an idea of its value. Im not gonna sell it, im gonna enjoy it for awhile, but i'm just curious. Thanks and plus rep guys!

Dude have the same batch # and MM# as you do! Finishing my build tomorrow but extremely elated by your tests. Hope mine is at least "silver" lol. Would be more than I need.

Post back in this thread when you find out. Maybe these batches are all golden would be good info for other OCNers

Its been stated many times by some very knowledgeable people on this forum that finding a good chip is less about batch numbers and more about luck. wink.gif


Serial # A1056 = crap, A1993 = average, and A1206 does 48x @ 1.34v.

As much as I agree. Just because a knowledgable member says something does not make it true.

Like I said though I tend to agree. However the possibility of a batch being better than another batch still exists. If that guys gets the same numbers as me, it's worth a look.

[Some batches are pure AMD but my binning hypothesis of 1000-1800 last 4 serial numbers for pretty good and less than 3000 for ok seems to be mostly good.
Too close to 100's and 3-4k seem more on the edge or poor parts of the wafer. Could be all random but on my last 4 3770k's and some other ppl's it's been more right than wrong rolleyes.gif

OK just to put this myth to bed, the last 4 digits of the batch number are completely random. They mean nothing. Nada. Zilch. The first letter is where the chip was assembled (which also doesn't mean very much). 3 = Costa Rica, 4 = Malaysia. The only other Ivy Bridge assembly site is in Chengdu China. Second is the year digit. Third and Fourth are work week of the year.
