Is there any specific information avialable with regards to the i7-980x CPU?

I have a EVGA X58 SLI main board and what I believe to be excellent quality RAM. I was thinking that, as this CPU was specifically designed to allow overclocking (or, designed as an "unlocked" multiplier CPU) that there would be perhaps a forum or somewhere to look for information about this.

Any guidance on the specifics of this CPU appreciated.

OC'ing requires good quality hardware to be effective and reliable. OC'ing also voids warranties.
PC Specs?
Prebuilt- Brand Name & Model Number
Custom Build- Brand & Model of Mobo-CPU-RAM-Graphics-PSU
Is there any particular reason you want/need to your 3.33GHz OC?
Is it lacking in performance?
We have a beginner's OC'ong guide located at the top of this section: if you are new to overclocking / read here for starters

All PC's are not the same. Posting your PC specs will help us to assist you quicker and effectively.
