    I have a friend in asia that's willing to sell me his i7 2600k ES D0. 5 Ghz at under 1.2v. D2s seem to do that at over 1.5v, if at all. Seems like a night and day difference to me, however I'm concerned about bugs. D0 is older than most engineering samples, typically D1. Then there's a total lack of warranty. Little torn here. Any thoughts?

    5ghz@ 1.2v?? screenshots with time and datestamp or it didnt happen.

    I remember seeing early leaks of 1.3v 5ghz screens, but no one was sure if they were real or not, and I doubt it. I know what intels 32nm is capable of and that is seriously pushing it

    Well maybe those were D1s. I found this just googling. Though I decided against an ES. I dreamed of 5ghz 24/7, and 1.2v would certainly make that feasible... but I just don't want to take the risk. Now I'm waiting for MC to get it back in stock.
