i3's don't have any K model. They don't have turbo either, so any OC (saving for bus based, which is irrelevant now) is out of question with those. i5's do have turbo, but all you can get is about +400 MHz (i5 2500 non K: base freq 3.3 GHz, max turbo 3.7 GHz).

Sigh, I remember that I think, ..
\My excitement, such as it is, is the 2500K, price/performance leader for me anytime.
OTOH, I want to see reviews of the I3s just to see what Intel has wrought on the low end. Making them too good at that price hurts their previous lines, not good enough leaves much of the low buck market to AMD.
