My local Microcenter has the 'k' version for $449 and the non-'k' version for $399. I have no plans to overclock. Is it worth the extra $50 to get the better binned CPU?

If you will like to go 5GHz on all cores then the "K" is the way to go.

Now if you ask me between those two, I will pick the non-k for a non-oc mobo and just spend those extra $50 you save towars a better GPU, RAM or cooling solution.

Cheers
