These technologies
Intel® vPro Technology
Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology

Are they of any use to me?

Depends - You'll have to look those technologies up to see if it's something you want. For the most part I'd say no though.

And if you run/want to run a virtual machine the K does have Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

No one else is going to know this but you.

I went with the non-K version when I built my system in Jan because I don't normally overclock. It's fast as hell already.

That's a valid point, they're damn good chips to start with.

For the small difference in price between the two ($15 dollars) you may as well get the K..... even if you don't overclock. It's a better chip.

Newegg.com - i7 2600

Amazon.com: i7-2600 processor ($37 dollar difference between the two)

I did, arrived this morning, just waiting for the mobo to turn up. In fairness my i7 930 is clocked at 2.8GHz so to jump to 3.4GHz cant complain. Thanks for feedback guys.

Hmmmm....... It's a little too late but had I known you already had an i7-900 system, I would have suggested you just upgrade your chip and wait for something newer than the current i7-2600 series.

That's the route I'm talking. I currently have an i7-950 (3.06GHz) chip and I don't think there's anything out there that it can't run/handle. BTW my 950 is OC to 3.8GHz.

Anyway good luck on your new Sandy Bridge setup.

BTW I really like that 2600K and if I didn't have my current system I'd be all over it like gravy on rice

Peace

Had I known he already had an i7-900 system, I would have suggested that he simply stay put for awhile.

I’m posting this here instead of the sticky ‘Post Your Overclock’ cause I did not run Prime due to the temperatures I was reaching. So I feel this is not a legit OC.
