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 build a lot of high end computers and I wanted to build my fastest one yet. I chose this chip over the 3960X as it is about $450 cheaper but only about 2% difference in performance. This chip when overclocked offers 130% more capability than an overclocked AMD 1100T. I have built many 6 core computers and tested them all in overclocked mode.

Right out of the box and installed this CPU was 7.8 rated by Windows out of a possible 7.9. This compared to a 7.6 rating for an AMD 1100T overclocked to 4.2 GHz.

It runs in 12 threads and looks to your system as a 12 core CPU. Couple this with a good motherboard and your DDR3 memory will operate in Quad Channel operation and you will not believe the power and speed.

If you buy this chip or the 3960X I recommend that you immediately purchase the Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan. This guarantees you a replacement CPU if yours should fail while being overclocked. The plan cost $35 and it is well worth it for the hobbyist overclocker. Go to this site to sign up for the plan, [...]

I have not overclocked mine yet as I am setting up all of my software and files. I want to make sure that everything is stable before I start tuning the system. My unit is running very cool using a Corsair H100 cooling system with 4 Corsair fans for a push/pull cooling system. At idle it is literally at 19 to 22 °C. At the standard set up I stressed it at 100% on all six cores for an hour with only two fans and I reached 48 °C and with all four fans I only reached 38 °C in 30 minutes. I had the cooling system set on the high mode and it was still quiet. The fan speeds only increase in speed as the H100 senses that the CPU needs it and it didn't kick in until I reached 48 °C.

This is the workhorse CPU in Intel's lineup. It's the lowest cost six-core Intel processor you can buy.

This processor uses the workstation-oriented LGA2011 socket, as opposed to the LGA1155 socket used with Intel's mainstream-class processors. There are some differences in capability between the platforms that should be taken into account when deciding what processor to buy that are at least as important as the differences in the CPU itself.

Reasons you should buy this CPU:

- If you have heavily-threaded workloads that can take advantage of extra cores. Compiling code, video editing, etc.

- If you have the need for a large amount of memory and/or more memory bandwidth. The LGA2011 X79 chipset supports up to 128GB of memory, and typically most motherboards will come with 8 memory slots, supporting two sets of quad-channel memory. Most LGA1155 boards by comparison support up to 32GB of memory, and come with four memory slots, supporting two sets of dual-channel memory.

- If you are planning to use multiple high-end videocards. The extra pins of LGA2011 allow X79 boards to natively support 40 PCI express lanes, whereas the LGA1155 platforms are limited to 16.

Reasons you shouldn't buy this CPU:

- The platform is more expensive. This CPU currently costs $250 more than an Ivy Bridge 3770K. A LGA2011 motherboard will cost you about $150-200 more than an equivalent LGA1155 board. You'll probably also want to buy a quad-channel memory kit for compatibility reasons, and quad-channel memory kits carry a price premium as well.

- If you want maximum performance out of primarily single-threaded applications. On a per-core basis, the 3770K is faster than this CPU in addition to being cheaper.

Verified Purchase
The i7 3930k is a great chip. However, what we received in the box was an Intel Pentium D made in Malaysia. It was rattling around loose in the package, which made us suspicious. Also the clear seal tape over the box flap was lifted at one corner and had air bubbles under. We've returned it for an exchange. Pretty clearly somebody else did the same thing and sent back their old chip in the 3930k box. This was an Amazon Prime purchase, not a third party. So, stay alert! There is a nice i7 3930k unboxing video on YouTube, which shows how the chip should fit in the packaging:

This CPU was too fast.

Amazon needs a way to prevent OUIs (ordering under the influence). One morning not long ago I woke up with a terrible hangover, not quite sure what happened the night before. Upon checking my email that morning, I noticed a shipment notification for a Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor. I realized I must have ordered in a drunken blur, and through the haze I indeed remembered placing some kind of order.

I was shocked, but decided to go ahead and let the order go through. After all, I had been debating this purchase for weeks and just didn't want to shell out the dough for this wicked CPU. After all, I told myself, I already had a quad-core 2700k overclocked to 5 GHZ, why would I need the 3930k with six cores and amazing stats?

But it was on the way. The 2700k at 5 GHZ was already a beast, and I found through practice I could reign it in and handle it, so thought I was ready for this 3930k and its hexacore awesomeness... well I was wrong.

To make a long story short, the power of my PC outfit with this CPU literally destroyed my mind. It was far, far beyond my control. I wrestled it for hours in epic battles through various intense games and applications, certain I could reign it in, but in the end it left me a quivering, sweating mass, as blood and drool sprayed forth from me in profuse waves. I don't want to go into the detail of the things I saw while this CPU rendered 12 threads of everything I threw at it at billions of calculations per second, but suffice it to say mortal human minds can't handle it.

In summary, I am sending it back -- it is too fast. I need to give it 5 stars because it is truly amazing. Words of advice: Do not OUI, and do not think other fast CPUs you have used have in any way prepared you for this one -- they have not.
