i5 2500

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Basically, I can't get a K version for at least another 20 days. Is non K version worth getting? It'll certainly be an improvement to my q6600 which I can't clock further then 2.68GHz 'cause of a ****ty mobo. I'm also interested in turbo mode with 2500, is it 3.7GHz for all cores or not?

The non k version is ok if you're ok with no ability to really overclock it.


Which for the price difference would not be OK with me, at all.

Needless to say, the 5.7 on K CPU's are just theoretical maximums.

I agree with that point. I'll just have to browse a few more shops and hope that there's one 2500K left.

Oh, believe me... 20 more days would be equal to torture. I already waited for more then 2 months for SB to be released so that I can upgrade.

I know it sucks to wait but I think you will regret it often, just wait.
