The i7 2600k and i5 2500k are very nice, indeed! Still not worth the upgrade from my i7 950, but definitely has me tempted. I'm going to have to wait for the LGA 2011 CPU's... :(

On Guru3D, they said the i7 2600k and i5 2500k obliterated in read/write tests... wtf and how?

I'm not impressed with the integrated graphics. It's a nice little bonus, but I think Intel hyped it up too much.

Best thing about these CPU's is the high performance and lower power consumption/heat.
