Finally Newegg.ca opened preorders for the Define R6 TG Blackout, so just got to wait on that to release, in the meantime I should have some more goodies arriving in the next week or two!

What kind of bins are these two? I had a 4.7GHz that ran at 1.31v and can push 2666MHz-1T all day long. For gaming, I was able to run it at 4.9GHz with 1.4v and same RAM speed. It was mighty for 4c/8t, in terms of sheer clock speed.
