Above My Expectations 10/29/2013
This Processor has exceeded my expectations in every way possible since day 1, at first I started off taking it easy on overclocking and stability testing only increasing my voltage to 1.2v and my multiplier to 42 thus increasing my overclock to 4.2 ghz. that being done I ran a 24hour stability test and never reached a temp over 60c so I then decided to increase the voltage to 1.25 and multiplier to 44 and ran another stability test for 24 hours and still never peaked over 67c. currently my system is air cooled by a coolermaster v8gts in a coolermaster haf x full tower using a rampage iv extreme motherboard. I never expected to get 4.4ghz out of this thing without installing a custom w/c loop.
None so Far
If you are considering building a x79 system this processor may or may not be exactly what your looking for based on your personal needs. but if you feel this processor would be a good fit for you I can say from personal experience it will be above your expectations.
