aDyerSituation Only 2 cores can hit 4.8 and it takes 1.32 vcore on each. I can't run mesh past 3.1. 3.2 is unstable even at 1.22.

I'd say you made out fine with a 7820X that will hit 4.8GHz IMO. My SL 4.8GHz 7820X was great, ran 32x mesh just fine though.

skupples the only people that get better bins are reviewers. end of story. this is why services like silicon lottery can charge out the ass for a guaranteed clocker.

here we are, nearly 2 months after you've joined, you could've been synthing like Data weeks ago via 3950x.

you realize you're making yourself seem incredibly autistic by holding onto this fallacy that this chip will some how be noticeably better from a 3950x (the superior multitasker) right? all while wasting yourself hella time riding that dinosaur x79. The amount of time you've lost yourself in rendering and post is incalculable.

lightsout It's got nothing to do with any store. Just snag one when you find the price you want. Honestly the 200~ish mhz difference that a good versus a "bad" chip will net you is meaningless in real life. Just don't look at the OC record boards and your good.

aDyerSituation 4.8 seems pretty easy on these from what I've seen(if you can cool it.) just buy the cheapest one

lol

It's called the lottery for reason. Just buy the CPU from wherever it's in stock and try you luck. Depending on the store's refund policy you can try and return it if it doesn't perform like you want. Do you really need the extra 300Mhz anyway?

Plus places like SL bin them at a set voltage. My 9900K was binned at 4.9 but can easily go past that if i crank the voltage.
