    Reviews - Intel Core i7 875K and Core i5 655K - unlocked chips for enthusiasts

    Intel woos the enthusiast with two multiplier-unlocked CPUs. Worth the cash?

    This chip would have been sweet in 32nm...

    The point? on Page 2 seems a little odd.

    Surely it's the ability of the P55 chipset to run higher base clocks that should be relevent when talking about the s1156 K series processors, not the s1366 x58 chipset.

    And realistically they're not really chips aimed at the enthusiast, the point may be to run higher frequencies on less enthusiast based mainboards without baseclock adjustment (such as an OEM 'gaming' system?), as most enthusiasts would realise that performance for a set frequency would be better with higher BCLK/lower multi than stock BCLK/higher multi.

    Some Water Closeting would have been nice. Review said 875k might have gone higher if not on air. Why not find out!?
