So, I decided on going with a Z270 + 7700k; honestly and I don't know how realistic this is, I'm looking for something like my current 920@4.2 Ghz that has been good for almost 8 years. That being said, I have two questions.

1. Does Micro Center allow you to pick out your processors? ie. specific batch #s? Basically, I have fixated on getting 5Ghz for 24/7 operation and nothing below that will do (OCD?).
2. Any particular batch numbers I should be looking for or avoiding? Seems like L639's tend to do well, but I'm not sure if they're still out in the wild.

1. nope
2. headscratch.gif ...basically a hit or miss when OCing

1. From 3 stores NY 2 of them would allow me to buy by batch nrs.
2. Not all l39 are same , my first L39 max would go to 4900 with high volts and temps.

So basically, I should pony up another $80 for SL chip? Because I'm really not too keen on playing the CPU return game looking for that golden chip.

At the Microcenter near me (Philadelphia), it seems to depend on the sales rep and how busy they are as to whether or not they'll tolerate that sort of thing. But it doesn't matter because they chips they have there are all new lots and all from Malaysia. I've got one to return I bought last week L6407F779 Malaysia. I CPU-Z'd it at 5.21GHz just to test it out, so if batch mattered this would be a pretty good one.

Meant paying extra $80 ($390) for a guaranteed 5 Ghz chip from Silicon Lottery vs. $299 + Tax from MC. biggrin.gif

Lol did not know that exists. Do they also tell you the vcore for it to run on 5000?

HERE

Their prices seem to fluctuate, right now it's a bit on a higher side. But, I suppose eliminates the headache of fishing for a chip.
