    While this one has been fun I find myself missing my 980X for daily use. Primarily want to trade towards another 980X but will sell outright for $400 if no other offers come in.

    Why are you selling it more than what it's retail value is? Just because it overclocks to 5.6? I'm confused? Aren't they all capable of this with the right settings/conditions? I imagine that's on a custom water kit also right?

    I'm just questioning why it's so much? It's not like when they buy it they can overclock it that high unless they do something to the exact same setup as you. + it's used. I don't think you have shown extensive enough tests either to prove it's 100% stable. Something like OCCT or Prime95 testing screens would help you sell it faster I imagine. But 400? That's a bit steep for a chip that's used and only is the chip alone...

    Rick, was the 5.6Ghz on LN2 or DICE ? I do have to agree that $400 for a $300 used chip is kind of expensive.

    Hi rick, i have not been paying too much attention to the overclocking of these new 2600K units. But I am aware that folks are getting decent clocks of about 5GHz. You have shown that you surpassed that also.

    Is the software not reporting things correctly it is showing 2 cores and 2 threads in one shot and 2 cores with 4 threads in another shot? Or are you able to shut cores down and then do the clocking thus allowing a higher clock but using less cores and threads?

    With the 2600k's are people able to attain these high overclocks when using 4 cores and 8 threads or do ya have to shut the thing down by 50% of its operating physical abilities and then clock the %#% out of the 50%?

    Not trying to offend you just have not done alot of reading on them. And $400.00 used is steep when ya can get them new here in Canada for $ 319.99 @ the egg.

    Rick, Nobody is going to pay that much for a used overclock chip when they can get new for same price or less.

    someone will dish out four bills for a chip is capable to go over 5Ghz, because there are only a handful of this chip can do over 5Ghz.

    who, you may ask....people have more money than brain, I guess

    I will try to reply to all in one post. The reason for the price is that is what I payed for it myself...not very many of these chips will clock this high, even from the same batch. It is a crap shoot finding one that will clock 5.5GHz and above. The fellow I bought this off of probably purchased twenty of these cpu's to find a couple that would clock this high...after selling those that did'nt for a slight loss the $400 price still netted him a loss in the end. Only serious overclockers do these type of things lol.

    I hope none here buy one of these expecting it to clock this well out of the box...chances are good that you will be disappointed. No offense taken on these points, I understand if you did not realize these things.

    The screenshots taken showing different cores was because of the particular benchmark I was running at the time. SuperPI 32M only requires one core to post it's highest score and the 2core/4thread validation was after a Unigine Heaven 2.5 benchmark run. Yes, it will do 4core/8thread at these frequencies as well.

    There is no need for extreme cooling with these chips at all...many say it is in fact detrimental. I have only used a simple pump with a water bucket and no radiator or my Boreas TEC so far. As far as stability goes, it is stable enough to run my benchmarks which was all I ever ask of a cpu. I would hope none here would be expecting to run a pc 24/7 at 5.5GHz + for any reason and cannot fathom anything that would require this.

    Voltages required for these overclocks vary greatly with the OS and motherboard used. My Biostar mb requires the least for 5.6GHz with 1.55 vcore...the AsRock mb simply will not boot at less than 1.68 vcore when using XP. XP will always need more vcore vs Win 7 just to boot in.

    Hope this answers all the questions for you and again, this is primarily best suited for those that wish to run benchmarks for their highest possible scores.

    Thanks for looking,
    Rick

    I will say, I had one of the fastest overclocks on the second revision of the Phenom II 955. I got $150 and paid $200. It retailed for $175 when I sold it and it was lapped. There will be nobody who will pay more than the worth. Sandybridge gets close to 5GHz new anyhow. 500MHz is not worth buying a used chip. Who knows what some one put it through. things like over voltung, high temps. You have no proof otherwise. I do hope you get it but just sayin......



    A validation on a suicide run won't do it either.

    I can't post every HWBot submission I have made with the chip here, but you are wrong on this one...it is common among the OC community when it comes to specific cpu's and their capabilities. You can buy a 5GHz chip for $319 or buy a 5.6GHz chip for $400...simple as that.

    Deal of the month - Since this thread has been picked apart at my expense already I will make this offer...Anyone here that buys a i7 2600 and can make it run 5.7GHz in any configuration I will buy it on the spot for $400. Case closed.

    Some wanted to see HT enabled...quick slop run for A3 worth 5 points at the Bot and I was not even trying.

    Guys, don't argue about his price, he has every right to ask whatever he wants for the chip. That being said, Rick is right, there are plenty of people who would pay a bit of extra over retail for a chip like that. Sandy Bridge chips are luck of the draw for high overclocks, and this chip obviously is one of the fast one. LN2 or DICE will not coax more out of these chips, we've been through this before. No need for being so shortsighted or narrow minded at Rick's expense.

    Change of plans guys...I will be holding on to this chip for awhile. Made a trade with a 580 Fermi for a 980X and just sold my other two 2600K's today so I will be keeping this chip for a bit longer.

    Thread can be closed - Thanks for looking
