    ES range from 90% -120% OC of normal retail chips (in my personal experience anyway, and have used quite a few). That's a buy IMO, though I would try to barggin down to $200 dollars.

    If anyone here finds a q94/6-50, I would sell a liver for one! Or else I have to cough up for a complete i7 re-build. Just please keep me in mind.....

    That would be a buy Bill! I have a 655k that clocks to 4.2 easy and I would think that i7 would have no issues clocking higher.

    Is anyone here considering buying the engineering samples of sandy bridge available on eBay? The guy's posted prof of it OC'ing stable to 4.5Ghz or so on air. You'd have to buy a motherboard too.

    Plus use less elect. getting you that amount of points. The 285's are power hogs the 400's series cards use less elect. and give you more PPD.

    Sorry to keep adding to the fire, but you could also get the GTX 275 which has the same amount of shaders (240) and overclock to get pretty much the same PPD as the 285. You can find some good deals on used 275's if you look hard enough.

    I wouldn't buy them when I can walk down to the production floor, and "borrow" some, but the problem would be finding a motherboard, also when handler production is finalized, we have to send them all back to Intel :)cry:).

    Continuing on my overclocking journey:

    So, at 3.8Ghz, my processor was stable in Prime 95 FFt test (no RAM tested) but was failing in the Blend test (lots of RAM tested). It would say worker failed, and a couple of core would shut down. So I dropped the OC to 3.6, and while playing Black Ops today the game crashed to the desktop a couple of times, so I did a Prime 95 test and again the Blend test failed.

    Currently, I've removed all OC and its completely stable. I'm thinking it might be my RAM taht isn't taking too well to the OC. I'll borrow soeme Corasir XMS3 from a friend and see what I can do with that If it works with that, I'll sell my RAM and get myself something else.

    However, I was only OC'ing using the multiplier, and not FSB, so I don't see why AM should be having trouble at OC'ed speeds and not stock, when its not really being affected by the OC (correct me if I'm wrong).

    I run my RAm at relaxed timings (CL9, rather than CL7 and 1333Mhz instead of 1600).

    yeah...i folded on my 480 for a day. 16-17k max at stock. they run too hot to OC without an aftermarket cooler. My 470 OC'ed gives me about 16-16.5k, and costs considerably cheaper

    My 480 OC is watercooled and nets around 18K almost 19K. When I receive my other 2 they will be watercooled also.
    between the 3 of them, hopefully they will give me enough PPD as a -bigadv rig.:D

    they will be added to existing -bigadv rigs, folding costs money but its for a good cause.
