You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about do you?

Not everyone is a professional bencher/overclocker. I didn't know what a leaky processor was two weeks ago. I just recently read about it.

Why not explain it to him instead of being condescending?

I suppose I'll explain it to the extent of my knowledge. Leaky processors are only beneficial for extreme overclocks because it allows more voltage to be put into the chip than usual. It allows voltages to be used that would normally kill the CPU, but since it leaks, it just produces more heat instead of damaging the circuitry and under ln2/dice/etc, that doesn't matter.

Leaky processors aren't good for normal users. Their potential can't be used with air/water cooling.

Because I forgot lol
I haven't read anything about leakiness for a few months, and all I remember is it really comes down to what you prefer, both have good advantages and some disadvantages. Remind all of us what leaky means in a CPU.

Has something to do with stuff leaking in the CPU me thinks :lol: if you gave me a day I might come up with some weird explanation that would make sense but why don't you tell us.

Yap noticed that.


I remembered it had something to do with leakage has bad and good and the good was partly better OC.

For anyone tl;dr
leaky-get good TEC/water/phase change cooler and OC like hell and ramp the voltage up like a prison inmate on crack
non-leaky-stock cooling fine, not much OC

It will probably bump current i7's down.. like the same 980x.

Sorry, guys, the 1000X just called...I'm getting 6GHz stable on a DIY water cooling setup.
