I have no idea but I did create a thread when I tried this with my Q6600 over here (i think) There was a noticeable difference for increase for me. Maybe it was the way I reseated or maybe t was because the base of the TRUE's dimensions contacted the CPU differently.
Either way I will try it over the weekend and post my results....

I could boot up in Windows running 200X21 (turbo mode on) HT enabled with 1.35-1.40 vcore. PRIME failed after 5 hours and LinX on the 10th try
I am sure that with a little tweaking I can get it stable but; temps are an issue. Hits 78c @ 4189 so until Intel release more info on this CPU I will keep her nice & chilly.
