Wow Scott, that i7-875k is looking really good to me!. I just built my system in January though. I've never been interested in over-clocking but I'm guessing with that cpu it would be pretty easy and I wouldn't have to worry about instability.


Is it too early to upgrade my processor?....Hmmm I don't know if it would be a smart financial decision...

I have this cpu now,



Also this motherboard,



How simple would it be to overclock the new cpu if I decide to get it?

Nice. <g> While I don't necessarily recommend overclocking for the unwashed masses, I've been a closet overclocker for years. Heck, I started overclocking my systems back in '85, right after the IBM PC-AT came out with a socketed clock crystal. But I've always done it in moderation, and have never tolerated even the slightest bit of instability. Fortunately Intel has always built its processors with a lot of headroom, such that mild overclocks are a virtual no-brainer. It wasn't until the Pentium II came out that overclocking became more difficult, as those were essentially the first processors to have the multiplier locked. Bottom line: I'd have no qualms about doing a little overclocking with these new Intel chips, especially considering that Intel is essentially *encouraging* you to do it. <g> Warranty disclaimers aside, they would not be practically endorsing such behavior if they didn't think it was easy and safe. Scott.

Whats the difference between FCLGA1156 (I5-655K) and good old fashioned LGA1156?

Do I need new Motherboard etc?

Also any plans for a S1366 K edition CPU?

It just keeps getting better for the consumer. At least it seems that way. I especially like what AMD has been doing with some of their procs. Of course I think AMD is forcing Intels hand a bit. Competition is good.

Scott,

I would love to get my hands on one of these unlocked chips, but I cannot afford to grab the i7-875K although I wish I could. Most review sites have sited that the 875K is a far better deal then 655K with regard to pricing and performance for your dollar. If I just wanted to "play" around with one of these unlocked processors do you see anything wrong with going for the cheaper i5-655K even though the i7-875K is the better value?

Nothing wrong with that, in fact the i5-655K has , so you could build a relatively low-cost yet easily overclockable system using that chip. I'm not a gamer, so I'm actually a big fan of integrated video as it greatly reduces system complexity and power consumption. Scott.
