The one and only place I knew who...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
would know the answer to this. At frys today checking prices and parts out for my build,I taked to a sales guy there about the SB i5-2500k and the i7-2600k . He was telling me that the 2500k would be more than I need to game with. I agreed, from reading the great post here. But I said the i7-2600k had 2 more mb of cache and HT. He said that if you unlock the i5-2500k you get those 2 mb of cache back. Anyone heard this.


BTW the i5-2500k was on sale for $219.

Never heard of such a thing.... sounds like he doesn't know what he's talking about
