Please keep in mind that over-clocking the processor will force the processor to run out of specifications, this could cause damage to the processor, so the warranty will be voided.
The Extreme processors are unlocked so the customer can over-clock them (under their own risk).
Well I think under this conditions, the extreme processor is useless,
because it is possible to overclock the I7 970, too without beeing unlocked.
There is a 400€ difference.
But okay, thanks for these informations.
I'll try to sell the processor and get an AMD one, because these processors are unlocked, too
and about 700€ cheaper.
Or the new Sandy Bridge / E.
Depends on the price.
But I will never buy an Extreme processor again for sure.
Well there is no reason for it.
Thanks a lot !
