A little while ago in our forums somebody mentioned a website based in the ‘Silicon Lottery’. The website is selling binned processors, guaranteed to work at a certain clock frequency. Though the idea is nothing new as there are parties out there that purchase a 100 processors and then make a selection, ending up with the best overclockers. So with that 5 GHz marker nagging me, I figured what the hell, Silicon lottery is offering a wide variety of 4790K processors which are binned, what is binning ?
