It should be noted that the Ivy Bridge-E are not only better in both performance and efficiency compared to the older Sandy Bridge-E processors but also topple the 5 GHz clocked AMD’s FX 9590 and FX 9370 processors with a TDP of 220W.

toooo much money for this perfomance! any octa FX CPU,crush this cpu in all games,on all resolution,on 4K without problem,but this cpu.. for gaming is shit...
Maybe it is only considering stable overclocks, so 4.63 vs 4.67 is statistically indifferent??
What's wrong with the water vs air overclock numbers seem reversed? Unless the water setup had a problem.
