My System Specs

Yeah, I agree that the 2600k is a "better bang for the buck" CPU choice in terms of pricing. It's also not like I went out and bought the 980x.. i've had two since last November. There isn't a lot of hype here on HWC, but there was a lot of bashing of the 980/990x when the 2600k came out, in form of reviews (once again, mostly other sites).

A lot of reviews had the 2600k at par, or beating the 980x at stock clocks and max overclocks. This isn't something I tested mind you, I tested "my real world 24/7 usage", which is more important than synthetic benchmarks on the bleeding edge of overclocking.

I'm actually thinking of buying another watercooling kit.. cooling them both, and clocking the bleeding snot out of them for something 'fun' to do..
DAMN YOU DAZMODE!!!! Making me look at your WEBSITE THE OTHER DAY!@#


I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
