    Did you get a replacement for the one with the damage?

    Not yet, but I will if it is really needed.

    Seems to be one of the better ones given the limited results out so far, but I'm not really expecting much. These are mine for a special purpose, not for review stuff, so I'll be taking my time pushing them. So far, between ES and retail, I'm again wondering why there is some disappointment. With short time playing with chips, seems like PCB makes for added 50W, never mind that these CPUs are quite specifically binned. I need way more chips yet for my OC guide.

    Dave I can't remember 100% but I think I got the same bin? Will have to check when I get home but I'm sure it's the same from what the wife said when I talked to her. What be the chance?

    Dunno. I don't know that CPU voltage is really where it's at.

    I think your I/O voltage tweaking might be interesting.


    Gonna take some time to play with each voltage and see where it goes on a good board. Given many seem to be pushing 1.35V or so, and I seem to consistently get 4.7 @ 1.25V I've been left scratching my head a bit.

    Nothing new sadly but I still like how these pics came out of some hardware I pulled out of a DELL XPS that a co-worker gave me:
