Last image, is the BCLK really that flexible on IVB? I was under the impression that it was similar to SB where you couldn't go more than 5mhz higher without issues.

Ha. As if it's ever that simple. Most of those guys work in the industry at other companies. Until I found that out, I thought they were kinda jerks, as they wouldn't sahre some info I needed...but then I found out, and understand that the info i wanted was covered by a real NDA. Dammit.:roll:


They had some of the best guys in the business for overclocking at the G.Skill booth, I wasn't expecting THAT MANY records though!

Yea they better hurry and pour liquid nitrogen on her.
Idk, I don't feel impressed.. Doesn't seem like much to me.. Maybe I'm desensitized.

Not even using a 3960X for the 3D Mark world record? Slack I say.

Interesting how being limited to two channels doesn't seem an issue for the memory bandwidth record.
