Good Information regarding Overclocking IB
Disappointing information to me,
but what is to be expected when new technology is added to the SB basic package, you're going to have to pay for it, somewhere.
The testing cooling he uses leaves much to be desired but not all overclockers strive for the same thing either.
I have to admit the SB 2500K has completely spoiled me!
Being tested and solid enough to punch in the multiplier level and voltage to run that multiplier in the BIOS, save and exit, and Wallah! you're there! from any range between 3.3ghz to 5.1ghz, is enough to spoil anyone.
What surprises me more, is that Intel did not release this shrunken head version of a Sandy Bridge Frankenstein Monster in a new socket.
I apologize if that offends the IB flag wavers, but end result wise, it is, what it is!
This is my opinion only, and FYI no contrary arguments will be changing my opinion!
However not every overclocking possibility has been explored yet either.
When the Sandy Bridge Ks were first released, all we heard were limitations, limitations, limitations.
When there actually were ways around those limitations, that had not been discovered yet, so there could be a light at the end of the tunnel for IB too, we'll see! Ryan
