We've been overclocking our systems for as long as we can remember. Intel hasn't always been the biggest supporter of such habits, but that changes today in a big way as the chipmaker has today made official the multiplier unlocked Intel Core i7-875K and i5-655K processors. At $342 and $216, respectively, they're attractive options for those who think running at stock speeds is just silly.
We've put them both through their paces, as well as head-to-head against similarly competitive options from AMD, in our feature review by Chris Angelini. Check that out right here.
While such processors hit the market at the exact right time for those looking to build a new rig, there's a chance that you could win one. We're partnering up with CyberPower to give away a PC valued at $1,499 based on Intel's Core i7-875K processor.
