As for the 970, fail on intels side with the price, worse, we even know they can do better, just look at the I5 760.

I can run my CPU at 4.2GHz and get Super Pi 32M to a sub 9 minute time but it wasn't stable enough for anything else. Try doing some FEA or CFD for a few hours - that'll let you know if your overclock is actually stable.
And of course, Bit-Tech could've just got a dud chip...

they really have plummeted in price.

As to this particular review:
We tested an i7-970, reported its stock speed performance, found it wouldn't overclock as well as any of our i7-980X EEs and found that at higher voltages it overheated and throttled.
Therefore, given that (percentage wise) it's barely cheaper than the i7-980X EE, we don't recommend it.
All of which the review says.
