Overclockers UK release de-lidded 5+GHz i7 7700K CPUs

 
When buying a CPU most of us wish for a "Golden Sample" or an above average overclocker, to win the silicon lottery and impress our friends and fellow members of the PC gaming community with your high levels of CPU performance and full CPU stability. 
 
Now Overclockers UK is offering pre-binned i7 7700K CPUs, CPUs that have been expertly de-lidded for enhanced thermal performance and professionally pre-overclocked and binned to ensure that users can reach overclocks of 5GHz or higher. 
 
These new expertly tested CPUs are OCUK's 8-Pack edition i7 7700K CPUs, with have had the CPUs internal TIM (thermal interface material) replaced with Liquid metal to reduce thermals by up to thirty degrees celsius under load and are guaranteed to hit clock speeds of 5GHz at CPU voltages of under 1.35V.  
 
All of these CPUs are also guaranteed to support 4000+ MHz DRR4 memory kits at select voltage ranges, ensuring that your CPU is ready for the fastest memory kits on the market.

The downsides of these CPUs are obvious, with all of the work and testing required giving these CPUs a hefty price premium. This gives the 8-Pack edition a £115 price premium, though it does give the user an overclocking ready warranty that protects users for up to a year, which is generous for a CPU that is de-lidded and is expected to be run at up to 1.425v. 

If you want to guarantee a win in the silicon lottery a high price must always be paid, though the combination of binning and de-lidding services on offer here do offer a good value compared to doing the same process yourself.

I wonder what they do with all the chips that they break the seal on and don't get over 5GHz..

Necessary sacrifices?

Blood for the Blood God!
Skulls for the Skull Throne!

Perhaps that explains that completely mental price premium?Quote

Perhaps they go into a pre-build with a 4.8GHz clock? Hard to know. They could send them all to me if they like.Quote

i think its a disgrace that you have to pay extra for someone to sort out the thermals, how intel get away with it i dont understand. if it was amd doing it everyone would be up and arms but paying 350 for a chip that has the cheapest of tim on it is just robbery

its great that ocuk are offering the service with a guarantee of oc, you get a bin and delid but just shouldnt have to be done on such a chipQuote

Hey Tom! You should defenetly try to have a sample from these chips and overclock the hell out of it. The i7s are out of my reach, but because of that I find it so amusing to someone else push it to limits. Then I start drooling for a system lick this. But you should defenetly do a "Extreme i7 Overclocks!" video, I would defenetly watch it.Quote

Apparently all the chips that are cherry picked from are not retail in the first place.
All the "failed" chips will go to their pre-built systems, so im guessing not all is wasted and thrown in binQuote
