What do you guys think? Is my CPU a bad sample? I have read about some people hitting 4.4ghz at stock voltage. And would I even need to use offset instead because I normally shut off my computer because with an SSD I don't mind booting up.
Not every processor is the same!
Just because someone hits 4.4ghz at stock, doesn't mean yours will!
My i5-2500K can hit 4.5ghz with 0.016V above stock voltage, but my i7-2600K can hit 4.5ghz with .2V above stock. See, I have a rig with a lucky chip and a rig with an "average" chip!
