For instance, if you overclocked BD to 2THz it'd be neck and neck with a 2600k.

This is a great moment in OCN history! Both are combined so sig worthy
I would rep+ you both if wouldn`t be forbidden
But back OT:
I a not sure who has the [whatever] to put 1,5X volts on this CPU. For 24/7.
Of course you could say that this chip can compete with I5 / I7 (a bit).
But how long? And you would have to pay a wicked electric bill and get some sweet WC in place.
Any SB CPU can do its 4.5GHz ON AIR!
So there is a huge difference
