Just an example of my offbeat reasoning for my work rigs.
I got the 6700K binned at 4.8Ghz not so I could run a 4.8Ghz 24/7 overclock.
Spoke with a guy from Intel, the CPU super-binning bro at SiliconLottery.com and two engineering buddies from college one at HP in Colorado, one at Harris Corporation here in Florida, all agreed purchasing the higher binned more efficient silicon would lead to less volts needed for stability at every clock at and below the bin speed. And that's what I need for both my inaudible rigs low low volts much less package heat to dissipate, and subsequently lower fan and pump speeds, the only two noise energy generating components in my rig(s).
Could have purchased a 4.6GHz bin (at lower cost) and run it at 4.6Ghz with higher volts higher heat stable.
Instead purchased a 4.8Ghz bin and run it at 4.6Ghz extremely low volts much lower heat stable for a 24/7.
I sort of did the same with my 6800K, wish I could have picked up a 4.6Ghz bin instead of the 4.4Ghz bin, but that's all he had available at the time.
My 6800K is 4.5Ghz stable at the new higher volts SL is now testing at 4.5 so I'm still very satisfied and he's now charging $569 for what is exactly my 6800K I got for only $469, a month ago when he was binning at lower volts.
I love Siliconlottery.com.
Yet following the same reasoning as above behind silicon efficiency direct relationship to inaudibility and lower waste heat pumped into your work space over time (mine is a normal ten hour day) I plan a daily OC of only 4.3 or 4.4 for the 6800K using the lowest stable volts.
And maybe I can get 4.6Ghz stable with this CPU, but I won't try again until I get the EK monoblock and get underwater.
