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.
