So... here's what I don't understand. If it's better performance-wise but worse on overclocking, I'm assuming overclocking means it's a percentage. So say it overclocks easily up 1.0GHz, while SB overclocks easily 1.5GHz (hypothetically). The stock on IB is 4.0GHz, while the stock on SB is 3.0GHz. IB overclocks 25%, SB overclocks 50%.
IB would still be better in the end because of a higher stock overclock. Is this the case?
Basically, comparing the performance of the two chips when overclocked with a typical air cooler (Hyper 212 Evo), is IB better in the end? Meaning we would stop both chips not at a certain speed, but at a certain temperature. OC for temperature, is IB better, or worse?
I know that was kind of confusing, so I can try to explain it more thoroughly if you don't understand me.
