Pure Overclock have a review of the Intel Core i5 655K processor, which looks like it may have some overclocking potential:

The Intel Core i5 655K is a dual core, multithreaded CPU that is essentially just a regular chip but comes with a few significant exceptions. The first is that it has an unlocked multiplier, the Holy Grail of overclocking, allowing enthusiasts to push higher speeds. he second is a new core revision has also arrived on this chip, so more overclocking headroom should theoretically result. And lastly is the price tag, coming in about $210 USD, immensely cheaper than what we normally see on Intel chips with unlocked multipliers. So how fast can this chip go? Read on to find out.
