Always reinforcing that upgrade path on the premium products, why not try to get in a double dip on the chip sales. On the flip side, those quad core chips will probably be a steal on the afterhand market.

I wonder what gives it that further OC range. Power delivery improvements on the platform?

Depending on your usage you may want to wait for Coffee Lake launching August.

AIOs can handle 1.25v easy = 4.8Ghz and up depending on chip. That is good in my book
And in 76% of the chips they could hit 5.1 at 1,275, should still be possible on AIO.
(Without having fans at 100% )

What's your reason for upgrading?
