Hi LarkStarr,

You mean someone MIGHT lie to me to make a sale?
Nah, people don't do that, do they?

Take care.........

My System Specs


Awesome price! I've only seen that kinda price for used engineering samples! Assuming it was a retail X5675 and not one of its extra spicy brethren, it also has the added bonus of a 95w TDP rather than the 130w TDP of a 990x. This means it generates a little less heat, so you could theoretically pump it full of more volts to achieve higher clockspeeds. But of course, as with all things OC-related, YMMV.
Think you can overclock? Then show us what you got!
