We still know nothing about its overclocking ability. Even if CPC performance is only slightly above IB, if it OC's like crazy and fixes some of the heat issues of the IB die then it will be a success.
I'd sell my few month old 3770k setup for a Haswell if they hit 5ghz+ on good air...if not, then I'll stick to my 4.75ghz 24/7 IB. Heck, we don't even know if the IHS is soldered or TIM'd, and that right there could be huge for better temps.
Basically, its still too early to tell .
