Super fast processor, Fantastic oc's. First Intel build (goodbye AMD). This processor beats even Intels most expensive I7-990 six core in almost every bench except video encoding, at 1/3 the price. Did I mention that it is just silly fast.
This CPU will throttle to 1.6 at 16x when in idle. Some benches will only read it at stock speed even when oc'd. Have not found a way around this. You can see the true oc in CPUZ while running prime or some other stress programs. Some forums suggest disabling various items in the bios. Have tried these with no sucsess. Just know the oc does work when the processor is under load.
