Obviously your humour isn't funny.

If you would read beyond I was wondering about voltages. These i7 cores look to require some voltages that degrade 45nm process to hit 4Ghz. Does anyone have information from a reliable source on weither or not these chips can hold up in extended use at voltages pushing 1.4v+?
We can only speculate for now as that sort of information isn't going to be widely available I wouldn't have thought. Unless Tom's Hardware Guide has something on it.

Is 1.3xxv high for an i7 then? I wonder what the temps were like at that.

the ES's were crap compared to the retail chips.

i've seen 4.3ghz on a 920 so far but that was on air. hopefully i can get mine to go further on TEC.

Why repeat yourself? I know you sent an abuse notice and you continue to instigate the issue. OBVIOUSLY you don't find it funny & OBVIOUSLY you don't mind going for a low blow at me and getting mods involved for great justice. I retracted a number of previous statements, but now they need to come back. Your information presented is nothing new, and you even agree the end product is up to a lot of speculation. This thread is pointless. All of this squabbling over your award is proof of that. Would a mod please close this thread before I crown him King of the Interwebs.

It's your attitude that's the issue dude, not mine.

I'm done, just didn't like the fact he came in and shat on my thread. If it was such an issue the two mods that have been in this thread would have closed it down. I agree it does make the thread/forums look bad, but it just annoys me people feel as if they should crap on something just because they don't agree on it, because of Binge's comments and my retorts (which aren't abusive) this thread risks being closed. Which to me, is a shame as the article I posted to is pretty interesting even if other websites have similar articles.

Wait, what? Are you directing that to me? I haven't launched any personal attacks, I didn't understand your posts - I only recently got pissy because Binge's original comments weren't needed. Hence why he changed them. Please, by all means show me where I've been attacking you. Plus, from the past how have I been ignorant? If anything, I feel as if I've been personally attack because of a thread I've created that designed to give potential 920 owners an insight that's not the same as the other sites the other threads have posted.

I've tried to be on topic, I've tried going back to being on topic - I created the thread! I'm not just going to let people come in, tell me what I should have done because they believe it's wrong. That's what a moderator is for. It's like when I was called a liar because someone else took what I had posted in their own way and had got the wrong end of the stick.

No-one needs to fart because we're talking enough shit anyway - all I wanted was people to come to this thread, see the Bit-Tech article and think "Oooh, more insight into how a 920 overclocks. Hmmm.... overclock! :drool:"

Not a problem, I want to share what I can. All the issue that went on before has been sorted out now - no more sand in vaginas, woo! :rockout:

Yummmmmm! :drool: I really can't wait to get me some Bloodrage (motherboard) goodness and my WC'age on with a 920. Another thing, that EVGA E-LEET looks exactly like a beefed up CPU-Z. Hmm... never seen that software before, I presume it's specifically for EVGA boards right?

Is that an ES? It doesnt say so but then again i dont know how EVGA E-LEET (lolz) would report these things... I heard you say that someone got their 920 to 4.3Ghz?

this is awersome. I just hope this thermal limit is FUD.

maybe a temperature in that SS so we may base the "acceptable" on something?

oh man thats a keeper right there hahaha :laugh:

so what if similar threads have been posted i find the first part of this thread before it got way off topic to be interesting reading even if others dont. if you dont, dont fricken read it, if you think its nonsense then report the thread dont start flaming the op who just wanted to post an informative article, tbh the more information we get on i7 then the better as far as im concerned, thanks InnocentCriminal :toast:
