I bought one on Sunday with the rakuten cashback deal and the status is "confirmed and ready to enter production" so I would say they are not ready to ship?

So having the K is fairly pointless. You're paying 100 for a better cooler, which is garbage still.

You're better off with the non K version, and buy the vetroo v5 cooler.

Use Intel extreme tuning to change power limits
But shouldn't the K still performs marginally better compared with the non-K because of its higher base and turbo clock speeds?

The other difference compared with the $1,440 system that was on sale a few weeks back is that this one doesn't have the 1TB HDD included. It only has the 512GB SSD. Even if people don't care for HDDs these days, it's still a $50 cost difference.

I ordered on Aug 2. That was supposed to ship Aug 30 and arrive by Sep 8. It got delayed to Oct 8. So expect delays on your order as well.

Correct, but by an extremely small amount. After using the extreme tuning tool I wouldn't doubt they're identical

Just some advice, wait until the next Rakuten 8%. This will be the same price, it's the new normal price.

What is your estimated ship date?

Aeroplan has 5x now. If you value aeroplan at 2c/pt then it’s 10% back, if 1c/pt then 5% back

However, you have to wait longer for the points to post. My mid May Dell orders (when aeroplan has 7x) were posted in mid Aug, so roughly 90days
