    Thats Correct, Server parts from AMD or Intel are multiplier locked. Less you want to figure out what bridging the chips use and risk wrecking the core by removing the IHS i wouldnt.

    In All Honesty Id rather Have Higher IPC than higher clocks.

    and I wouldnt count keeping the current 1155 parts with 1150 on its way

    So I guess it isn't worth upgrading from my 2600K?

    Not worth it at all. I'm keeping my 2600k for quite sometime. What's after Haswell?

    Picked up a 3770K for $312 including taxes.

    Dont think its worth it for those on Sandy-Bridge systems. Unless they like spending money but why spend it on a mainstream chip and not the Enthusiast socket and chip. For those building a new system Ivy-Bridge and --7 boards look to be a no brainer choice.

    Ivy-Bridge benefits over Sandy-Bridge
    -Runs cooler at same hz
    -Better memory scaling
    -Lower power consumption
    -And its faster
    -PCI-E 3.0

    If you get the Z77 they have benefits too.
    -PCI-E 3.0 (need Ivy-Bridge CPU to activate)
    -Internal USB 3.0 support (no more re-routing)
    -More fan inputs and control customizations
    -Improved power phases

    For those overclocking. You can get 4.4ghz on stock cooler wouldnt recomend it for 24/7 the stock fan is smaller and thinner. I'll be getting a ALC soon.

    I got mine at Microcenter for $312.46 out the door in CA.

    Many are running 4.5ghz 2 1.2v Prime95 stable (yes the new P95x64 AVX v.27.6) with high end air or self contained h80-h100's.
    Anything higher you'll need heavier duty liquid cooling for sustained 4.6ghz-4.7ghz.

    Another slick thing that makes z77 seem 'faster" too is that you can run ddr3 2400-2800 off the bat!

    And it includes a license for virtu mvp.
