My System Specs

Default

Realistically 2011 is the enthusiast platform, why add special/enthusiast features on mainstream cheaper CPUs and Mobos.

I think it's fine to not pay for unused/not needed features at the mainstream level. It may be the difference between a $300 i7 and a $450 i7

As for Ivy bridge will the shrink get us better overclocking? Will we see a higher multiplier than 56? Somehow I don't think anything is going to be impressive enough for people with golden 2600ks to upgrade to a new mainstream platform for at least 3 years.
