Yes the K version is the unlocked version. Of the chips being released next month I believe there are only 2 that will be unlocked "k" models; the i7 2600k and the i5 2600k. I believe the i5 is basically the same as the i7 but without hyper threading and is supposed to be about $100 cheaper.
I know the smart thing to do would be to simply wait a little while after their release to see more reviews of its performance....but that will be hard to do lol
