The .50 calibur machine gun of processors,

This review is from: Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor 3.2 Ghz 12 MB Cache LGA 2011 - BX80619I73930K (Personal Computers)
Loving this processor so far. Got a huge Phanteks air cooling mine and it idles around 35C (usually between 33 and 38), hits about 60C using prime95's small ftt with 12 torture threads (that's 100% load btw) and it cools down quickly. No problem playing games, played Dead Island maxed out for 2 hours and it didn't get above 45C. It's tough to load this thing heavily doing what I normally do (games, web surfing and occasional web development).
You can't really go wrong with this processor. Its power rivals any of the Extremes for about half the price. And of course, AMD comes nowhere close with any of their processors.
