Very impressive, sounds like you got a golden chip there . Mine becomes unstable at 4.7 but I haven't had time to test it thoroughly.My system is overlocked to 5ghz hence the Geekbench score. I usually don't run it at 5 ghz although its stable but drop it to 4.9ghz which gives me a Geekbench score of around 20,100. If I drop it to 4.8ghz Geekbench is around 19,750 but running only a fraction over stock voltage. Each chip will be different - I have not tried pushing mine beyond 5ghz as even with a XSPC AX360 rad cooling only the CPU temps start getting close to 90C when run running stability tests like Prime 95 and OCCT
Since last posting i switched to the grey RAM slots and it seems to be marginally faster so i'm going to stick with this until I get my other two chips.
Also, the youtube / safari bug has completely gone in 10.10.2 so i'm back using iMac15,1 definition flawlessly.
