Ok at stock speeds. No good for overclocking

  • Summary: I have one of these on a P79 Deluxe MB from ASUS (supposedly the best MB currently for gaming) - backed up with 64GB 2133 DDR3 RAM, SSD RAID, dual GTX680's, watercooling etc as a gaming PC. Although the RAM and gfx cards overclock fine, this CPU will only OC around 8% at most without having serious stability issues. The chip runs cool at idle - 29 degrees or so in my rig, and heat doesn't seem to be the issue. It's just not suitable for overclocking.
