    I don't think skimping out on a cooler is a bad thing especially for K series since probably a majority of users will use their own cooler. But yeah they need to improve that interface between the die and the IHS.

    It's not, but the savings aren't passed down to us, and that's where I have a problem with it. I mean if they included a stock cooler I could at least try to pawn it off for $10 on CL or something.

    the point is if you have a broken cooler or something happens, at least you have something to use for backup.

    ^this, is the biggest reason. 6700k is still even more expensive at $350, I don't see any cost savings but instead a jacked up price

    This is the biggest thing. The 6700K has almost no reason for anybody to buy it right now. You can find a 5820K for almost the same price, and a X99 board for almost the same price as some of the Z107 boards. X99, 2 extra cores/4 extra threads, a much more robust enthusiast chipset and quad channel support can be yours for only $50 more. I hope the 6700K flops and intel has to drop its prices down to about $280 where it should be.

    B-b-but 14 nm dammit!!

    Nah it won't flop, so long as "enthusiasts" keep upgrading every CPU cycle, Intel has no reason (or motivation) to stop what they're doing.

    Any performance enthusiast who buys a 6700K in a desktop format instead of a 5820K is an idiot and cannot prove me wrong.
