Batch Number Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What does the batch number mean? If someone has the same batch number as me does that mean the chips are pretty much the same? As in I could expect to reach the same overclocking potential? Wondering about this as I saw someone with the same batch number 2500k that I have doing 5.1ghz.

Thanks

Having the same batch as a great chip doesn't guarantee yours will clock amazingly well too.
But its a start.. Every chip is different, but in general yes a chip coming from a golden batch should be a great clocker..

Awesome. Now I just have to wait for the nh-d14 to get here tomorrow and see how it goes Should I use the stuff that comes with it or us the AS5 I already have?

I dont like AS5 personally, It's conductive and takes time to "break in"..
I dont know what comes with the D14, But really almost all high end thermal pastes are within a couple *'s of one another.. I would use what it comes with and call it good..
