The 2600k seems to take to overclocking much better.

The K models are unlocked. In addition, they always benchmark better from what I have seen..so I would always purchase the K variety.

the 2600k has an unlocked multiplier while the 2600 does not, the 2600 can be overlocked to around 5.01 ghz but the results for the 2600k are higher.

for the cost difference the 2600k is worthwhile if overclocking is your thing, if not then the standard 2600 is just fine.

The K model has Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics.

The non-K has Intel HD 2000 integrated graphics.

Tough to get a lot of detail on the differences, but it probably isn't clearcut in normal use.

I believe you mean:

The 2600 doesn't have these features, the K model in fact does.

According to the link, the 2600 DOES have the features; the K model does NOT.

It seems that the i5-2500K and the i7-2600K doesn't have those options.
Apparently Intel had to make some trade-offs to unlock the processors as well as give them both
the higher HD 3000 graphics.
