3930K & Rampage IV Extreme
 
Hey guys,

Whats a Intel 3930K worth these days? A retail one with receipt showing I paid $599 for it, folds at 4.6 Ghz under water.

And a RIVE, pretty much the best X79 mobo in existence. :biggrin:

$450 and 350? Or am I out to lunch?

pretty much dead on.

I'd love for you to sell me the 3930k for $200 which was the IRE sale price... but I regret to inform you that it's worth about $450. :(

I just paid over $ 600 with the taxes, I will have been happy to pay $ 500 for it for sure.

Thanks for the feedback. Now I just have to decide whether to sell it.

Looking for something new and exciting?

I'm not folding much anymore as our electricity costs have doubled in the new house, and I've got a good 2600K running stock (gasp) in my wife's mITX build I could reclaim if I dropped an i3-2120 in there for her Facebook use. Or sell both chips and go Ivy Bridge.

Also, my Craven build is pissing me off. The tubing has discolored and my PSU fan is dead. So if I'm going to rip it apart, I may as well just start fresh and the Hexa-core is overkill for gaming use. I'm not going SLI again anytime soon, so I've got no reason to keep an X79 platform.

So 250 fps isn't slow anymore? :haha:

Not that this is a build log thread but let me put my 2 cents in for what they are worth.

First, your Costs are bang on for what that HW is worth.
SEcondly, the RE 3770K I got puts at 4.0 .... 163 From the wall, Full load. Coupled with my old 260MAtrix In gaming I am maybe doing 200W. Maybe.

Sell both, get an Intel Z77GAL-70K board (Lots of toys on that Board) , a 3770K and call it done there. Then decide what to do with the $400-500 you have left.
Mushkin works best I find in the Intel boards,
