I am able to have a very very nice deal on this CPU. With a ASUS P9X79 WS should be great !!

Drools....

Bit of hunting all I have managed to find are those using the SR-X with these chips having minimal results. Although they are running them on a 2p config so that may make a big difference. But they have posted SS of them doing benchmarks @ 3.5ghz . 2 of these appear to be outdoing the 48core amd setup.

EVGA Classified SR-X
