My System Specs

Technically speaking, for the 2500k and 2600k people that had good luck with the silicon lottery, 5 GHz was very doable, sometimes even on air. The top 2600ks could clock 5 GHz at under 1.425V (good for a 32nm process) and still be stable on Intel Burn Test.

On that note, I think this does bode well for Haswell-E.

Does anyone know how good the TIM used is, relative to the fluxless solder used on older chips?
