FYI... If you foolishly try to upgrade the processor in any recent "store bought" PC like I did, even if the specs check out "Option Upgrade" and you have done all the research, that is Intel's compatibility list only! The Brand Name PC has a (custom bios setup), which may only work with the factory processor installed. With this extreme chip, build your own PC to be exactly what you want.
The package comes with the CPU as well as a round Intel heat sink with pre-applied thermal compound, so no need to go through the effort of buying a tube and then wondering how much to apply (perfect for first time builders!). I think the price is very reasonable for both, since you'll end up spending at least $30 for a standard heat sink. I personally did not use the heat sink included, I purchased a contained liquid cooler (CORSAIR CW-9060007-WW) for it which seems to work great. Some reviewers mention that this CPU tends to run hot if you really work it, so keep liquid cooling in mind when considering cooling options.
Honestly if you're thinking about upgrading your computer or building a new one, consider this CPU! Save a little money getting a top of the line i7 and go with an SSD instead, (I loaded Windows on my Samsung SSD and startup time is approx 15 seconds, restart is around 30) you won't regret it.
Overclocking report: runs fine at 4.4 GHz at stock voltages. I could certainly start bumping up voltage a couple spots and squeeze a little more speed out of this proc, but if you look at temperature vs voltage charts for Ivy bridge procs, they really start taking off once you go a few spots above stock voltage. The cost-benefit for me just didn't add up. Here are some numbers:
Original speed: 3.4 GHz
Overclocked speed: 4.4 GHz
Voltage, as reported by CPU-Z: 1.15-1.16
Peak temperature Prime95 for 1 hour: 66c
Peak temperature under normal use: 52c
So I am well within the appropriate temperature range for this processor. My case and airflow design may have something to do with that, so consider that carefully when building a system. I have 3 80mm and 1 120mm filtered fans blowing in, and two 120mm fans blowing out. Positive pressure design, keeps dust out, but tons of airflow.
This review went a LOT longer than I thought, so here's the conclusion. If you need a new processor, and want something that can handle just about everything you could throw at it, there is no bigger bang-for-the-buck deal than this model. Spend the time to research every component of your build though, as it will only be as good as the weakest link.

Its given my ASrock pro 3 board a good few years more life use at a reasonable cost. It feel like i've got a new machine, especially when multi tasking while editing photos on lightroom
