    Default CPU manufacturing date?

    Sold my old fx8350 on ebay, and i had 3 different people messaging me asking for the manufacturing date and was looking for an "older" chip, which unfortunately i dont have. Im wondering why they were looking for them? is there something about the original CPU's that were better then the new one? the only thing i could think of is you were more guarnteed to get a chip to overclock to near 5Ghz as the 9*** series ones werent out yet, am i correct?

    Strange. Never heard of there being any significant difference during the production span. Hopefully somebody here has a clue as to why it is a sticking point to those potenial buyers.

    That's what I figured the older chips you had a chance of getting a "9xxx" and with the the newer chips there all binned specifically for a "9xxx"

    Yes that's it. One batch is better than the other. As far as OC
