    Best CPU choice for high end system, February 6, 2012

    I waited up at night for these to go on sale. I bought one on launch day and have been using it 24/7 since late November.

    This CPU is amazing, it clocks to 4.8 GHz on water @ 1.34v and never gets above 60c even 24/7 prime95 stress test.
    It runs 16GB of DDR3 @ 2133 with no problem, with 9 CAS, all at stock memory controller voltage (I’m lucky on this one!)

    Yeah, it was a bit expensive, but who cares… its the bleeding edge of technology and you’re always going to pay more for something like this.

    If you’re going to be building a super powerful system this is the CPU for you. The 3960x is not worth the extra cost.

    I’ve been a long time buyer of AMD cpus due to the price to performance ratio. Within the last year however I have been running more virtual machines on my pc and have been in need of more CPU cores and wishing I could go beyond 16G of RAM on my AMD boxes.

    I had been on the verge of buying a new Bulldozer to upgrade from an AMD Phenom II 1090T six core, but realized that even after spending an additional $270 I was only going from 6 cores to 8. I wanted to leave at least two cores and 8GB of RAM dedicated to the host OS, then put the remaining RAM and CPU cores to Virtual machine use.

    With an AMD FX-8150 I could only get 6 cores left, and since 8GB RAM sticks are very expensive, I could only get 8GB of RAM out of the 16 my board could hold with 4x4GB sticks after taking 8GB for my host OS. This meant that at most I could get 4 single core virtual machines with about 2GB of RAM each.

    I decided to wait to look at the new L2011 offerings from Intel before buying AMD again, I’m glad I did. Intel’s CPU has 6 physical dual cores giving me effectively 12 CPUs. The motherboard I’m using with the CPU has 8 DDR3 slots meaning I could fill it with 4GB sticks giving me 32GB.

    I now have 10 cpus and 24GB of RAM for my virtualization needs, meaning I can run 10 Virts with about 2GB of RAM each easily. Perfect for my needs!

    While it cost a lost to get to this level of PC (Mboard, CPU, RAM) exceeding $1000 total, I feel that I know have a system that I can easily get four years out of.

    I also fired up Photoshop and the thing is just super quick on this CPU.

    Here’s what my build looks like:

    ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard
    32GB RAM – 8 x 4GB of Patriot DDR3 DIMMs
    Intel Core i7-3930k CPU
    Corsair Force 10GT 120GB SSD for my OS boot disk

    Overall I ended up getting a 7.7 Windows 7 experience index.

    In conclusion, I’d recommend this if you have apps that are heavily threaded and can use the cores, for needs that can fit on an AMD build, I’d go that route since it costs a lot less. If you have general productivity needs, go with an AMD build and save some cash, if you need a beast machine and you’re investing for the long haul, then this processor can only be bested by it’s slightly bigger brother.

    Great upgrade from 920!, December 6, 2011

    I upgraded from the i7 920 to the 3930k with the Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard. This chip set DOES NOT come with a fan, which is vague in the description. I went with the Corsair H100 and was able to install it directly onto the motherboard without an adapter or backplate onto the motherboard. Onto the 3930k… this chip is much faster than the 920 I had before. I’m sure it can go higher but for now I’ve overclocked this to 4.5 with no problem. I have no doubt I can go higher but haven’t tried. It is much faster than before with Adobe CS5 Production Premium software with 2 SSDs in RAID 0.

    The only two problems I have had with this chip have been with installing Windows 7 for the first time not recognizing the hardware. I had to install the driver software onto an SD card and install it into windows during installation. Not a big deal but took a while to figure out. The second issue was my old hard drive not booting up after the upgrade. I’m not sure why this happened and I didn’t discount the chip because of it, but the old hard drive would not reboot.
