    I think that's awesome!

    Especially the 655K looks interesting.

    875K depends how much it will cost.

    Bring them on, I'd say.
    There's not enough quad core range for the 1156.

    Why don't Intel just release a 6 core for the 1156 unless they worry it's going to cannibalize sales from the 1366.

    The hell?

    What's with all the listings on static-ice saying that it doesn't come with a heatsink? :confused:

    going out on a limb here
    but I would assume that
    since it's aimed at enthusiasts, they sort of assumed you wouldn't use the stock cooler?

    I guessed that as well, but the stock cooler is required for RMA for most Intel CPU's (If not all)

    I would think they might be oem tray cpu's.

    If it doesnt come with one from factory, one would be right to assume it wont need one for RMA.

    I think your on the ball.

    At least postage would be cheap on this babies.

    Nope, this is what the CPU's are for;

    EDIT:: Doesn't really say it's going to be OEM, yet in a way that's what it's designed for kinda, sounds like it's for those PC stores that do there own system builds that aren't actually OEM /confusion

    Why does that make them not oem tray cpu's?

    edit: I'm not saying they all are OEM tray cpu's just these initial batches might be.

    When you say OEM, i think of companies like Dell, HP etc.

    But why would they want processors that are easily overclocked? As i said above; Sounds like it's for those PC stores that do there own system builds that aren't actually OEM

    Unless i don't fully understand the OEM concept and am failing hard right now :lol:

    Guys i7 875K and i5 655K come in both tray oem no hsf and boxed retails. These processors Intel's target market is system builders for pre-overclocked systems as per Anandtech's conference call with Intel. They aren't targeted at overclockers specifically.

    Poor AMD's going to take a blow. They had a niche with cheap unlocked CPUs...

    They look good, though. I'm not too sure what the good of the 655K is with only 2 cores. There should be something somewhere between, like an unlocked i5-750.

    And yeah, the only reason that you'd want one of these is to OC, which you're not going to achieve on the stock sink. Unless they want to start shipping them with the 980X HS for a little more...
