What do you guys think of the no base clock overclocking turbo only.I am a bit disappointed that intel locked all these cpu's.From now on overclocking can only be done on designated unlocked cpu's,wich they will charge more for the privilege.

That's not right.. Dominators running @ 1866 should max wei @ 7.9 - I max WEI running Dominators at 1600 and 1800 -- 1866 should be fine, unless you are running under 1600, you should max wei - unless your memory is running sub-optimal for some reason.

I could not get wei to max my CPU even at 4400 MHz - I think it just reads the model of your CPU and scores it that way.

WEI is not something you should really use.

I've hit 7.8 with DDR2-800.

I'm actually excited to try something different. I understand the concern people have. Dumb theres not even a dual core K version. But those came later with 1156 so maybe they will here too.

It's the way it has to be with more and more moving to the die. You need to get the K chip AND correct mobo for these chips.

I have hated, as the end user, the Intel business model for years. But they know they can milk a few dollars out of the enthusiast and OC community with unlocked multipliers (that cost NOTHING for Intel to actually unlock), "Extreme" chips in black boxes, and of course releasing the same chip, and charging you double for a coupole hundred more MHz..I could go on and on, as could others I imagine.

It's why I resisited going to the Dark Side for a LONG time and stayed with AMD... but after a while, they just got too far behind.

I am crossing my fingers Bulldozer can at least compete this time.

Hey guys,

Check this out:

Gotta start filling it out when users start getting their chips, we also need comparison numbers.

Wow some of you guys have it real good, Balla saying $229 for the i52500k is expensive makes me envious of the prices you guys got over there.

i5 2500 no K version is that price over here and i5 2500k will be $299AUD over here,i7 2600k has been sold out.

I should of got the damn CPU it is only $100 extra to the 2500k, now the only store that sells the i7 2600k...sells it for $499

So now I have a grueling wait with all my parts sitting here except the CPU, This is very frustrating.
