It's not.

There's no way in hell the 2500k debuts @ $180.

Sandy Bridge can go up to 5GHz on air.

The 2500k is an i5 model, not i7. That's also why there is the difference in L3 cache size. The mounting for 1155 socket is identical to 1156 so there is already a mount available for your block.

It is only worth it to get the K series for overclocking, from what I read the normal non-K CPU's don't really OC at all. You can only go 4 bins higher on the non K and that is only with 1 core active. With 4 cores active you can only go 1 bin above the normal turbo mode multiplier, which is not very much of a gain at all.

Tempted. I wonder if they will allow online ordering for instore pickup? I probably will not be able to get there Sunday, but could Monday if I leave from work.

The price for the i5 2500K seems right given that the i5 760 was $169 at MC. If this is true on launch day, I might have a reason to drive all the way there. If I do though, I hope they don't sell out before I arrive!

You can go online and do the 18 minute store pickup. They reserve one for you and will have it ready for you to pick up in as little as 18 minutes, but they give you 3 business days to pick it up before they cancel the reservation.

Hmm, didn't know about that. Microcenter seems more and more appealing of an option.

Hmmm..... is $100 more worth it for the 2600K versus 2500K? Any direct real performance tests?
