Intel Sandy Bridge et overclocking : révélations autour d'un bug

A french link, but here is the point:
According to Intel, a bug would be causing the chips to be un-overclockable. They did notice this sometime between the release of the Pentium E6500k and the 655k/875k. Hence the release of the last two.

It is said that the firsts sandy bridge chips won't be overclockable. (the low end ones, on the 1156 chipset if I recall). The first major revision of these chips would bring overclockability, which will also be possible on the upcomming high end chips. So this could be the cause of the release of the "K" chips with an unlocked multi.
