I picked on up at Micro Center yesterday for $399.99. Mixed bags, but as it stands right now, I'll be selling or returning it. My 5960x, which I consider to be above average, is returning the same Cinebench single core results. Admittedly, my 5960x is a great example, but I was doing clock to clock comparisons on the same rig. The best single I got with the 6800k at 4.8 was 198cb. 196cb best for the 5960x.
Clock for clock, the 6800k took more voltage to stabilize at any given frequency compared to my 5960x. This resulted in temps comparable to Haswell-E.
The cache on my 6800k does not OC well.
I was able to pull off a best of 1512cb multi core / 198cb single in R15 @ 4.8, which seems pretty damn good, but the chip is far from stable at that speed.
With limited stability testing so far, 4.6GHz @ 1.37v may end up being my chips best stable overclock.
Anyways, here's a R15 run at 4.6.
