I don't think you can just "order" a golden chip, it's a gamble if you buy it from a manufacturer or official reseller. Your best bet is finding one used from ebay or similar sites where someone has found one and is selling it. Also.. if you wish to OC past 7ghz, you need liquid nitrogen.

Neither of them are needed for everyday usage and/or a moderate overclock.

And don't expect your golden chip to last long either at that speed.

I bet you can hit 4.7 -5Ghz easy with the 8350 you have now (with a good cooler)
