The fastest JEDEC standard DDR4 module is 2400MHz CL-15.

That's simply not true, they are fabbed to meet the JEDEC specification at minimum (for JEDEC certification which is basically required to sell RAM).

The reason they aren't clocked higher by default is they would no longer meet the JEDEC spec, so they use XMP to get around it.


If you honestly think they're all the same I fucking dare you to go out and find some run of the mill DDR4 and try to clock it ANYWHERE near 4000mhz with CL under 22.

You're saying this like you can reliable expect that effective rate and CAS latency from your XMP DIMMs, when you can't. XMP works way less often than it doesn't.

You are such a moron. They're not designed to go higher, because they're designed to meet the specification.

And yet the kits that can hit 4000+ MHz are always running low on stock because they dont produce many of them and they cost $200+ for 8GB just for shit's and giggles.


If they could just throw any chips in there and slap an XMP sticker on it and sell it as 4000MHz+ they fucking would.

If you buy XMP RAM and it doesn't work at it's advertised XMP speeds, you can get a refund you faggot moron.

Good explanation.

You're literally retarded, if they could get away with slapping whatever XMP they wanted on a stick of RAM why do you think there are SOOOO many kits available in the 2133-3000MHz range, but once you get over 3600MHz stock goes way down, half the kits are out of stock, and the other half are $200+


If you actually think they're the same, why wouldnt the manufacturers just pull some of the "cheaper" stick out, slap a more expensive XMP stick on it, and then put it back up as the more expensive units that are out of stock?

idle temp means dicks and has mostly to do with your ambient air temp and your fan curve.

Some people like their computers to be quiet, even under moderate load, so the fan curve will let the CPU hit 50C before the fans spin up past 400rpm.

well that's something you should never cheap out on, but if you have a good quality 3-4 year old unit, no reason to replace it.

unless you're a business or large corporation, intel simply wont care.

Say what you will, but people have been using ES's at home for personal use for literally a decade+ without issue.

You're technically right, but when there are literally no examples of Intel asking for an ES back from a home consumer, I think you're fairly safe.

It doesn't matter if Intel cares, you still can't buy stolen property and it still doesn't belong to you. I understand the dirt cheap ES models but people actually spend thousands on them which is ridiculous and I know that's not throwaway money for them or they'd just by real ones.

And that's not even getting into them being broken, sometimes in ways undetectable until you try to use a feature.

>> No.57916379

>you still can't buy stolen property
You very easily can, you know how I know this?

I bought an ES 5 years ago, used it daily. Only recently upgraded and since i have microcenter nearby now, I went with their in-store sale pricing on Haswell-E instead of a Xeon.


It was stolen, I bought it, I ran it as my daily CPU for years, and I sold it along with the rest of my build to an older gentlemen who needed a cheap desktop. And guess what?

It's still working for him too.


Who cares if it's stolen? Who cares if you don't TECHNICALLY according to the letter of the law own the CPU?

You have it in your phyiscal possession, it works in your motherboard, it runs your programs and performs at it's specified speeds, etc. For all intents and purposes, it's your CPU in every way but the legal sense of the word.

The law you're violating is contract law you stupid hack. The contract is that Intel gives you these chips for use but retains ownership and you are not allowed to sell them.

You go after the seller because KNOWINGLY selling something that is not yours is illegal.

If no one involved knows better, or in the case of ebay, you looked up a CPU number, bought the cheapest one and you don't know about CPUs enough to know it's an ES. Good fucking luck ever getting ANY legal action against that individual, and even IF you could get it into a court room, you'd 9 times out of 10 be laughed out because it's fucking retarded to put blame on the consumer and pretty much any judge would say so.

Because the ownership is not transferred in the sale. The seller violates his contract and legal action can be taken against him by Intel. Intel can also ask for their processor back from you and take you to court over that, obviously - but they don't give a shit either way.

These processors are literal trash as far as Intel is concerned, and unless you're a corporate user they have no financial incentive to deal with the situation. They can't do anything with these processors other than destroy them or store them in a bin somewhere.

That and all of that extra shit no one in here cares about, We don't need to see the CPU feature set, we don't need a list of all the XMP profiles your RAM has available, we don't need any of that lower level detail.


It's a speccy thread, all that is needed is full system specs, including monitors resolution and model number, GPUs, CPUs, and their temps, and all the drives, etc.
