My System Specs


Beat price I've found so far:

RIVE $420
I7 3930k $549 is your "friend". Your absolutely right, you won't notice gains "gaming", but you'll see gains running Benchmarks going to a 6 core 12 thread 12mb Cache!!!
More importantly, it's the "best if the best" ;)

Before you pull the pin on that RAM check out the Corsair Platinums, don't get to hung up on the extremely high speeds, bearing in mind the Memory Controller of the CPU's limitations (1600 - 1866 MHz).

That 3930k should reach 4.2 - 4.4 Ghz without too much trouble !!


Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
