For people who are only buying into the non K series this is a good thread for them to know. Not EVERYONE knows of the limited overclocking ability to those of the non K series.

Even older 775 chips overclock better than the non K version of SB processors.

So if you are one of those people who are buying into SB and don't know what it really means between a non K and a K.. well its a rather large difference.

And if this thread could perhaps make someone make a better decision on their purchase than it has served its purpose.

everyone comment I read state that 2500k or 2600k are perfect, so tempting
Well, the deal of the 2500K+ the Noctua NH-U12P for $249 over at NCIX.COM (this week's sale)is pretty sweet IMHO...
