What is the difference between the Skylake i5s (non-k)? Just Clockspeed?

IS it just the clockspeed that's different by .1GHz everytime, or is something else coming into play?

Overclocking. The K means unlocked multiplier so it can be overclocked.

There are many things that determine CPU performance, like PCIE lanes and such.

Clock speeds with the non-K CPUs, maybe some power draw differences, clock speeds on the IGP might be different.

As others have mentioned, the clock speed is different, including iGPU's if you care about it.

clock speeds only for locked i5's

Can also be reductions in cache alongside those clock speed reductions. PCI-E and other major items tend to stay the same but I wouldn't put it past Intel to change a few other things on the harvested dies that litter the mid range of processors. Its worth checking Ark before you buy just to see what is actually different beyond clock speed if anything.
