Yeah I really ain't sure on it Gary, maybe someone with a non K series can confirm, but I seem to remember in the past in the overclock thread a couple of people posting some decent overclocks with non K.

I know for a fact the i7 3820 which is the non K Sandy E can be overclocked past 5GHz, but I am not sure on Ivy non K.
The 3820 can be OC'd, but again, it is in Intel's Extreme line.

Well it's the Enthusiast line, obviously the X versions are the Extreme ones, but I am sure I saw someone a while back get over 4GHz on a 2500 non K on here, I am really not sure on Ivy though.

Perhaps one of those who can get trays of CPUs and unlimited boards to play with.

Non K chips usually will allow a 400mhz OC, at least intels. The 15-3330 I had was 3.0 with 3.2 turbo, I could OC to 3.6 in the bios. It allowed setting up to 45, but never went above 3.6 except for the occasional turbo spike.

And the result is of the 51 tested which includes mayonnaise and none at all, the top 31 of them were within 3C of each other.
