Get it while you can. Absurd price for incredible performance. 5.0GHz is easily do-able, and about the same as a 4.8GHz i5 3570K while having better temps (and usually only 4.6GHz is what most people can do on an i5 3570K, anyway... at least safely).

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Maybe they can lower the price on the 3570K once the 2500K is gone
