Yes, but not on my mainboard :D Thats the problem. Otherwise the x5650 would be enough.
That was general information to help others who may want to try this. They are socket 1156 CPUs. When I first posted that I wasn't aware the i5 655K was 2 core so I added that info as a clarification.
The importance of them is they're under the 95W limit many locked BIOS OEM motherboards have.
