Intel Skylake boxing is surprisingly flashy

Photos of the box art of Intel's new Core i7 6700K and Core i5 6600K processors have hit the web. The boxes look quite refreshing and the rumors about these chips not including a stock cooler is true. Both 14nm chips feature unlocked base-clock multipliers and are intended for gamers/enthusiasts.
Both the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K feature the same integrated graphics SKU - HD Graphics 530. Both feature integrated memory controllers that support both DDR3L and DDR4 memory types. The Core i5 predictably lacks HyperThreading, and only features 6 MB of L3 cache, while the Core i7 features HyperThreading, and the full 8 MB present on the chip.
