It never was the case to begin with. All 3 Bloomfields will OC just fine. The base model, which I showed above which is the i920, comes in at 371$:

Did you seriously think that Intel wouldn't release a mainstream model that could be overclocked? When was the last time that either Intel or AMD did that?

Heck, I wouldn't call any motherboard over $150 mainstream ($100 is probably more accurate). Unless you are planning on going multi-GPU there isn't any reason to have a board that costs more than $150. And if you're going multi-GPU you aren't shopping in the main stream segment.

I've always had rigs that were damned near top of the line with a single GPU and the most I've ever spent on a board was $120 for my DFI Lanpart Nforce 4 Ultra. My current board was right around $100 if I remember correctly.

lol we were talking about the bloomfeild cores in the i7's there not locked so they can OC but there the high end segment it is said that the other cores (more mainstream and cheaper) are locked and can not be OC'ed. Hes arguing $370 dollar bloomfeild is mainstream

Blasphemy!

I haven't had a system running at stock clocks since 2001 with my Athlon 750Mhz Slot A. My CPU was around $200 about 15 months ago and there still aren't any dual core CPUs that come close to the same stock clock speed. OCing is the way to go if you care about price vs. performance.

humm a EVGA board well if it has some forum of load calibration and decent windows software then it might be ok but it doesn't appear to be special

Were you born a tool or were you involved in some sort of accident that made you this way?

The only CPUs Intel are releasing in the near future are Bloomfields so why are you even talking about anything else? All the boards in this thread are for Bloomfields.

These mainstream processors you are talking about are called Lynnfield, they won't be released for nearly 9 months and are not even the same socket (LGA1156) as these Bloomfields (LGA1366). They probably won't even be called Core i7. By the time they come out we will probably be nearing the release of Bloomfield's successor, Westmere.

If you want to buy a Nehalem CPU for your desktop then your only realistic option until Q3/4 09 is going to be Bloomfield. Yes they are meant to the slightly higher end, but they aren't these uber-clocking variants you're talking about. Only the top of the line Bloomfield will be an Extreme Edition CPU. What that specifically means for this range of CPUs we are yet to find out.
