I do design drafting at home using AutoCAD and Solid Works.
Over the years these programs got bigger and bigger.
To be able to keep up with this I decided to build my own PCs (more bang for the buck).
This is my first Intel built. My old ones were all AMD's (less expensive).
I like to get these black or extreme editions so I can play around with overclocking.
So far I have no complaints everything seems to be working just fine.

I snagged this when Amazon had a "price error" for $699 so of course I'm going to give this 5 stars when it came out to be around $140 more then a 3930k/4930k. Compared to my old 3930k this CPU boosts up to 4.0 GHz (instead of 3.8 GHz) at stock speeds, has a TDP rating of 150W (instead of 130W), and comes in the legendary black box from Intel instead of the blue they are using now on EE boxes. Paired with a Rampage IV Extreme it isn't difficult to clock this processor to speeds of 4.8-5.1 GHz so long as your cooling can handle the heat produced. If you could get this CPU for the price I paid (I noticed a few days after I bought it they raised the price) I would recommend it in a heart beat, but for the regular price of the Extreme Edition CPU's it isn't worth the extra $300 or so unless you never plan on overclocking then the extra 200 MHz could make a difference in your applications.

I bought the Intel tuning plan warranty ($35) so I'm not worried about pushing upwards of 1.5V into this thing and the IMC to it's limits. From what I can tell the IMC (internal memory controller) is a lot better then my 3930k was, not counting mine maxed at 4.7 GHz on the cores and 2133 Mhz memory while this hasn't hiccuped at all going to 5.0 with HyperThreading enabled and 2400 on my Samsung memory. Though IMC's and CPU's in general will vary by nature so no 2 CPU's are identical in how far they can go under certain voltages or conditions.

In short I'm glad I searched Amazon randomly that day for this CPU, I hope they lower the price again so others can get this.

Well, this thing is really fast, it make looks like the ugly friend to any other i7 processor. If you have the money, go for it, if you you have 2k or less for spend on your computer I'll probably choose another option for have spare money for a great video card and SSD.

I upgraded my system and was completely surprised by the increased performance. I expected some increase in performance going from an I7 gen 1 processor to this gen 3 but never this increase. You can play games while crunching some heavy data files with no slow downs.

Amazing performance when you have money to burn! This is the "lambo"/"ferrari" of computer processors. People who buy this usually can afford it and want the top performance no matter the cost

Cpu is a beast. The best of the best when it came out. As of today still a very powerful chip. I have owned it for 9 months and crushes any task. Rendering also is a monster. Overclock it to get the most.
