Oh certainly I understand what you're saying. I'm more looking at it from a frequency vs $ perspective.
If you buy a 5.1 GHz vs 5.2 GHz chip you're paying almost 30% more for 100 MHz more. I get that for some that's not an issue but I guess if you want to win an OC competition that certainly is necessary.
But it sounds like your experiences with Silicon Lottery are that their voltages on their site are conservative? For instance if I buy a 5.1 GHz, I probably wouldn't want to run at 1.4vcore 24/7, so is there even a point? Or is it likely the 1.408 they listed is fairly conservative and I could very well be seeing a chip that does 1.35?
