First time posting a deal, I see it has held around the £160 mark for a long time and has only been this price briefly once before. Quite a good deal if you're not after a K version

Hard sell still at this price due to lack of over clocking options. If you don't want to over clock surely just get the i5 4440.

Don't intel phase processors out so you will not get a massive price drop.

Cold, at this price you should be getting the K version, this is a waste of cash....

The sheer roar power of these, for such a price they get 7752 on cupbenchmark. I remember in 2000 (which doesnt seem that long ago to me!) I got an athlon 900mhz, it seemed to be amazingly fast! But it probably barely rates above 200 on the same benchmark.

needless to say if this is to times faster then your year 2k Athlon it doesn't make it better cos u need fast processors to do modern day basic tasks so still cold

Not sure if I agree. Lots of people, probably most never overclock their machines.

I recently bought the i5-4690 - specifically picked as I did not want to overclock

If this was available then I probably would have gone for this instead.

Strange comment - waste of cash because it doesn't appeal to you? Which K one would you buy at this price?

Some people might prefer VT-d support for virtualisation in the non K chips instead of overclocking with the K chips

Finally someone with some sense. I virtualise with mine. far more useful

If you're not gonna overclock may as well get a Xeon for a little more. This price point is stupid, voting cold.

Looking at the performance comparisons, I'm struggling with the idea that the iX series are a good buy compared to the Pentium Gxxx cpus.

I don't think the Xeons come with GPU onchip
#16
Bought.

Showing £160.40 for me.

Doesn't matter because anyone doing anything that requires an i5 will have a discrete GPU anyway. Inb4 'video encoding' because a Xeon will be infinitely better than an i5 since it has HT. Anyone who buys this will regret it in a fee years when their punch is lacking and they can't just OC to squeeze a couple of years out. Buy cheap, buy twice.
#19
Back up to 160 just as I was about to buy after finishing work today!!
#20
So if someone buys this processor, saving £25 over the K. Then buys a cheaper motherboard, say £30 less than one that enables overclocking.
Are you saying spending £195 now rather than £250 is buying cheap? Furthermore it's not like the processor can be changed later as there will always be a new socket type.

My brother had an Athlon black in his PC for the last 5 years, never once clocked it as any modern speed gain was pointless. He's now running a cheaply bought i5-2400 which will last him just as long.

I've always wondered how servers last so long without overclocking, it must just be magic or maybe, just maybe overclocking is not the essential tool people portray it to be.

I already have the i5-3570k but this price is really good so I might get this one HASWELL!

Its not my "personal opinion" its based upon a long time history with building and maintaining computers for a living and hobby.

It's just a FACT, that you can get more for your money by choosing the K version of the chip, the fact you ask K version of which chip shows me you don't know much about this product at all....

I stand by what I said, for the same money elsewhere you can get the unlocked chip and get more for your money.

That's too bad, I'll let you read in the OP post, take your time, soak in the key points about the product name, then figure it out, or google if all else fails.
