Yeah, they seem expensive for what they deliver. If anyone was going to spend £300 on a CPU (or more), they would go for an X58, and clock the i7 930. The 1156 platform doesn't seem the logical place to stick these chips, although I suppose that intel don't want to put people off buying the extreme edition chips.
Good review, so good for OC3D, but weird price/platform of chips from intel.
