i3 Sandy bridge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just out of curiousity but is anyone like me and put of by the fact that the i3 sandy bridge cannot overclock? It feels like Intel is purposely crippling capable hardware in order to make i5s and i7s look more worth it

I'm in the same boat. Sad news is I don't think there are any K versions of the SB i3 on the roadmap.

Yeah, and there are I5 and I7's that dont unlock as well. You can still OC, just not near as much and the chip is dependent on Mobo for OC'ing. Maybe some people just want to save an extra 20 bucks I dont know, but yeah, they should have made an I3 "k" version. Would have been fun.
