Yeah, because unlike every other reviewer I have talked to... who has ES... I have retail CPU. So, I know what the end user will really get. Which makes most discussion about all of this quite funny. Many sites have missed the mark about what Intel is doing for so long, but because I don't do CPU reviews any more, it's not my place to say what's what. And because most of those sites are so focused on OC, they can't see the forest for the trees. And if it's their job to show everyone what's coming, and what's here... and they don't really know... HOW could anyone else? These chips are soldered. With an added bit of epoxy around the core to hold it in place when mounted to the PCB. TWO COMPLETELY different adhesive techniques, for two different purposes.
