I think the K is just whether or not the multiplier can be changed.

You can still increase voltage (but I wouldn't recommend it) and increase clock speed.

I've never had a non-K Intel CPU but I believe you can increase the frequency, but not the multiplier. So, you can overclock but you are very limited.

No overclocking on non k, I bought a 4670 non k for the primary reason that I will not be overclocking. But I could have waited and bought the 4670k as the price has dropped to what I paid for the non k but I have no regrets!

Just bought a 3570 non-k secondhand. With Battlefield 4 coming up, seems like you can get these cheap as hell now.
