Thread Starter 
So...ATM ive got a i5 2400 and i want to overclock and i clearly cant with this so i was wondering should i upgrade to i5 2500k or wait for ivy bridge...trouble is ive heard ivy bridge will probably be very expensive and its coming towards the end of this year which probably means it will be released in the next 3-5 months

thanks

The biggest improvement in IB over Sandy will be the integrated GPU. I'm sure you wouldn't regret upgrading to a 2500k right now

i'd just wait, can't hurt to at least get a few more rumors before deciding

Hey don't forget about the 22nm size. Although the benefit of that, in terms of overclocking, isn't really known.

When you get your 2500k up to 4.8 GHz, I highly doubt you will be disapointed.
