I really wonder if all these people making negative comments about SB have actually used one or not? It seems all the people who say very good things about it, all have a 2500K or 2600K in their sig rig. The majority that are negative, have something else. How can you comment negatively, or positively, unless you have actually used one?

There is just no comparison between my old rig (AMD Phenom) and my current SB rig. SB blows the old one away.

This.

Of course SB is Performance and X58 is Enthusiast, but P55 performs close or better than X58 anyway

If you had a C2Q or a Phenom II, it's the best upgrade path, but nothing special to P55/X58 users.
