Intel Core i9 9980XE Pre-Binned 4.6GHz (Sky Lake) Socket LGA2066 Processor - OEM
Turn your PC into a studio with Intel X-Series Processors - the most powerful Intel series ever produced. Designed for professionals and enthusiasts alike the X-Series is the ultimate platform for gaming, virtual reality and media creation.
Intel X-Series Processors contain upto 18 cores, 36 threads and a max of 44 PCIe lanes providing unparalleled, uncompromised performance. You can multi task like never before, simultaneously handling intensive workloads such as rendering in the background. Intel X-Series Processors are anything but main stream!
Unleash the 'X' Factor
Being unlocked allows you can set the pace. Overclocking ensures maximum performance and lets you optimise your CPU for both power and stability.
Intel X-Series Processors are perfect for streamers and gaming professionals in particular allowing you to game, record and stream in 4k while staying in total control. No longer do you need multiple rigs to power your digital life!
Overclockers UK Pre-Binned: Performance Guaranteed
What is a Pre Binned CPU?
All CPU's can hit the boost clock as advertised but not all 'X' chips can surpass it due to minute imperfections in the silicon. Not a single CPU is created equally and all perform differently with less than 5% being able to perform to our highest guaranteed frequency. Pre Binned CPU's remove what is known as the silicon lottery and allow you to buy one of the most capable CPUs in the world.
High performance, overclockable CPUs are highly prized and would cost an individual tens of thousands of pounds to manually source and test hundreds of processors finding less than a 'handful' of what are required to make the grade. Why spend more? Save the hard work for us!
How are CPUs 'Binned'?
Each CPU is individually tested by the world-renowned Overclocker 8Pack on specially designed water cooled testing rigs which utilise the very latest hardware. Each rig has been configured to utilise pre-determined voltages and settings which allow 8Pack to determine what the silicon is capable of, without throttling the CPU. The CPU's are graded into categories with the very highest being De-Lidded and used in our 8Pack and Infin8 systems with any excess being sold as pre binned. Any CPUs that don't meet the standards required are not simply put back into stock but held for projects or used in any of our machines destined for events.
- We recommend a dedicated water cooling loop or ‘high-end’ AIO with a 360 triple rad.
- 1000W+ Gold or Platinum rated PSU providing enough quality power for the entire system
