This is why people who want to get into that 5.0GHz range are sticking with Sandy. You'll see tons of posts of people wanting to trade 3770Ks for 2600/2700Ks. Or at least, there were for a long while.
is it only on the WC part or the IHS removal part? (but anyway, even if there is a wall, WC is quieter and pretier
i admit that i too wanted to go sandy to reach the 5 ghz mark, but i dropped the idea quickly since i can live without +400 mhz and with PCI-E 3. (though, if i'll find second hand 2600k/2700k for a great price i might buy it in addition, you know because its OverKill.net

In otherwords, for the money I've spent building/rebuilding my loop I could have had two computers running at 4.5 instead of one running at 5.0.
thats a scary statistic, but then again its OverKill.net

but on Ivy it doesn't have soldered IHS, but a cheap TIM and most say the diff is ~10C
(but the real debate for me is either to remove IHS or get the intel Overclocking insurance thingy. any thoughts?)Edited by RKTGX95 - 10/1/12 at 3:10pm
