8700k silicon lottery

Hi I'm getting 5.2 ghz on 1.37v under 80 c under fullload prime95 with a overclockers uk £20.00 heatsink ..
Have I won the silicon lottery and what do you think I'll get when I set my loop up[.

    I am very skeptical you're cooling an OCd 8700K with a £20.00 heatsink. Even if you had delidded...
  6. Still happy with that loop is coming the weekend may be 5.5 ?
  7. Not touched the cpu at all and it's a overclockers deepcool heatsink it's I have used ic diamond thermal paste it will do 5ghz with no mod on the bios or volt I just bumped it up to 50 and it posted first time..
