So I am curious and interested in buying from here. But I see they offer the same CPU but at different prices saying they were able to reach X speed using Y voltage. But do they send any additional information with purchase on what they set in their motherboard to help me reach that speed also? To get a stable OC you need to tweak a few things to make it work right. Just upping the voltage inst enough.

Or are they saying if you know how to OC you can get close to this but we are not telling you what settings to change in the bios. And if they dont provide additional information and I can never configure it correctly to get close to that speed do I get a refund ? How do we know they ever really even got it to that speed if I cant match it or come close to it? I see alot of positive reviews and word of mouth but I dont see the actual proof anywhere to validate it. They are just saying it got there so here it is. I validate things all day. Its my job and it gets me when I have to just take someones word.

Firstly they have a reputation to uphold, there is a reason that so many people go to them. Secondly, overclocks depend on many factors, cooling solution, motherboard etc and thirdly I can't believe this was a serious question but... do you get a refund because you don't know how to Overclock? No; obviously not. Do a little reading and have a serious think whether you need an unlocked chip as it seems you're quite uneducated. There is no point paying a premium for a feature you don't use.

First off the above post has a point even though he is being a bit rude in making it. If you have never overclocked before you will want to be careful. At 1 time I believe but could be wrong that they were using Asus auto overclock function to bin the chips. Overclock settings aside you must have a cooling solution adequate enough for the overclock and knowing how to manually overclock will yield same or better results at lower temps than any auto overclock program.

Other than that, Silicon Lottery has a great reputation because you do get a chip capable of what you pay for assuming you have the skill/knowledge and cooling solution to support it. Also they back it up... per Silicon lottery website: Returns are accepted for all orders within 14 days from the date of purchase if you are unsatisfied with the performance of the product. We will provide a full refund of the original purchase price less any shipping and handling costs. Processors must be in their original condition to be returned, and still be eligible for our warranty.

Orders paid in Bitcoin are only eligible for replacement and are not refundable.

To initiate a return, contact us at [email protected]

Upping the voltage is all you have to do. We only change the CPU voltage and frequency (along with XMP for memory) when testing, so it's a simple plug and play if you follow our QVL.

That's what I did almost three years ago.....it worked exactly perfect. Then I found out, I could get the same advertised speed at a little bit lower voltage. It's been running that way 18 hours a day for almost three years. Mark me down as more than satisfied and the QVL instructions were simple to follow. Take the plunge...I've been smiling for the whole time.
