you will be fine, really. Check this alienbabeltech review, they used i7 920 @ 4ghz
but im kinda surprised they stripped out 1PWM, now its only 4 instead of original 5, why? was 1 extra using that much power?
doesnt this also translate in less OC and more strain on those PWM and shorter longevity?
Although i saw one saying they (OC freaks) managed some ultra OC with LN2 1800mhz+..
I know here was a big deal with 570gtx and only 4pwn, that's why i went with 6+1
, guess it doesn't matter anymore?
