Do anyone know if the current batch of 5960x OC better than the Day one chips?

Well, the last batch of 5960Xs was pushed to 6Ghz on all cores+HT on LN2.

First one maxed out at about 5.7Ghz.

I dare to suggest 5960Xs did get better with time, but the gain is relatively minor. Not to mention that Broadwell-E is not anywhere near 4.3Ghz Prime95 stable right now, to suggest it's going to get to 4.5Ghz Prime95 stable 5960X was capable of.

True, but, out of the 4 reviews that I have seen so far, 2 of them were able to bench the 6900k at 4.5, which is almost as fast as the 5960x at 4.7. I am trying to decide, get myself a new 5960x, or, wait for the 6900k....I have decided not to throw my cash at the 10-core, I will just wait for Skylake-E.....

Wait, what were those reviews? I did not see a single one exceed 4.4 yet.

Well, i don't buy the latter one, since they never mentioned voltage/cooling. The first one got to be THE golden sample if i ever saw one.

To be honest, I wouldn't trust a reviewers OC skills anyways, that is including gpu also.....if I could get a 6900k at 4.5+, I would be satisfied. I will have to wait til members get them.....still going to pick up that 5960x from MC to replace the one that I have. selling it to a family member who uses my pc for his music production.....dude gotta go....smile.gif

Also, maybe early batches are so so.

i guess we have to wait for the reviews of the newer mb to see which one implements a better turbo 3.0
the updated mb still says turbo 2.0 but accepts 6950x with bios upgrade

I don't except good performance on the older mb w bios upgrade vs newer mb
