But that's EXACTLY the point, it's NOT just down to cooling. My CPU couldn't go 1MHz past 4,400.25MHz at one point, along comes a new UEFI and now it boosts to 4,525.25MHz on multiple cores. So in other words, people not hitting advertised boost, is NOT related to cooling alone. Don't try to simplify this issue, as it's really a lot more complex than that.Now you are being just silly, obviously in this case the "up to" speed can and has been reached by multiple CPU's of the type.
Nothing to do with that honestly kinda childish scenario you are conjuring up.
The fact is that is just down to cooling, if you have enough cooling you can reach the needed speeds (even if some manual tweaking might be involved).
Its what Steve from GN has been saying for a while now, OCing is seemingly dying, the modern processor will push itself as far as your cooling (and stable voltages) will allow.
If Nvidia put on the box of the GTX970 "up to 4gb of Vram" they might have been in the clear on that one, because im pretty sure everyone would look at that and think hmmm bit of a gamble and then make the choice to buy or not.
