    I'm disappointed with this release... was hoping for another stud overclocker like Sandy Bridge so I could upgrade from my 4.8 GHz 2600k but with this there's just no point.

    my retails both get 4.6 GHz, no problem, haven't tried for more. Silicon variance may be very high with these chips, I have heard some reports of that from board partners.

    I think they will be in same price tag. I'm aiming into 4930K too, replacing my awesome Gulftown. :respect:

    Not as great as I expected. Hopefully when steamroller will come out it will compete with haswell especially if they put on the 20nm fab.

    You might be Tiny Tom Logan with his 4770k @4.9 would hit 100c while stress testing

    Great upgrade for someone who still use core 2 series processors.

    Interesting tidbit over at HardOCP, this bit of info supposedly comes from ASUS:

    Seems they also got sent a "golden sample""

    That's a nice 24/7 4.8-4.9ghz daily driver...

    I can post 5 GHz+ screenshots too. But it seems that there is a big difference from what you can operate in OS and what's truly stable, as [H] said there. pictures don't tell the full story, they were posting that screenshot to show that they tried AIDA64 testing and it didn't work for them.

    He needed 1.475V for 5 GHz stable.


    Absolutely. 4.9 GHz is a bit high voltage, IMHO, but, maybe with really exceptional cooling...

    My 2600k doesn't even need that many volts for 5 GHz stable

    Your 2600k doesn't offer the flexibility or same IPC as Haswell does, but I get what you mean. To me, voltage used doesn't matter...it's the power consumption that matters. And yes, Haswell consumes more...it has the IVR. Which is also why board matters even less for CPU clocking now. Memory clocking, on the other hand...

    It's a good upgrade for people who are on Nehalem's or Phenom 2's. I'm going to wait a week or so to see how it pans out with regards to changing the TIM and OCing before diving in.

    The days of big overclocks on mainstream CPUs is over. Its all about power saving and features now......... unfortunately for us.

    I just got mine this afternoon and I was able to hit 4.7.

    Thanks for the review... I was kinda looking forward to Haswell, but by looking at most reviews online the OCing potential is nowhere close to IB, let alone SB...

    I feel disapointed, yes, IPC is higher, but OCing to 5GHz is almost out of the question, unless you're really lucky, what a shame...

    So this is the way the enthusiast CPU ends, not with a bang, but a whimper :ohwell:

    Wow, so much for the 5GHz on .9v, or the 6.2GHz on 1.2v. I didn't think it was gonna pan out to be true anyways but I was hoping.

    I'd say check for ES chips on ebay, but going by reviews even some of those suck. I saw 98c at 4.5 ghz...

    TTL reached 5GHz with the Z87-GD65.... He warned about the H100i not coping with it, tho.

    Haswell OC = Draw of the luck.
