please note all intel ending in K are ready to overclock, however those are very prone to have a short life,I have seen lot of those burned/dead, generally some overclockers make abuse of them to the extreme

Very intriguing. I have an ASUS P6T I've been using for over 8 years, 2.80 GHz and I've overclocked it to 3.15+ often, from the time I built it and..the 2 Core is doing very, very well. However, I understand the newer CPUs run a lot hotter. I appreciate the info, as I'm consider Ryzen.
