How on earth would they be the same price as the 2600k?

3930k is around $600, 3960X around $1000

If I go SB-E, I'm going with 16GB.

How are the timings?

Timings are not great

That's like saying i7 couldn't use 4 slots because it's triple channel.

Since SB-E supports quad-channel though, I'll expect 8-slot motherboards, which will be nice!

well a 1366 motherboard would not have 4 slots while relying on triple-channel memory slotting, unless i am mistaken.

Of course not! It would only have double-channel memory capabilities... But there ARE boards available on 1366 with only 4 slots, just like I'm sure there will be SB-E boards available with only 6 slots.

You said that SB-E wouldn't be able to use 6 slots, but that's simply not true if the max is going to be 8.

Pretty sure you're correct. While a 1366 motherboard could run 4 slots, it wouldn't benefit from triple channel bandwidth, thus making a 4th slot not very useful.

The way i see it, LGA2011 will feature 4slot and 8slot boards, 6slots of the 8 could be used, but only 4 of those would be operating in quad-channel

I've got 6GB and that's enough for me right now...

Right, because systems are bottlenecked by the terrible bandwidth of dual-channel memory.

FWIW, my dad has an i7 system with only 4 memory slots. It runs just fine in dual-channel mode. Running memory in triple channel mode is in no way necessary... At most, it gains you 1-2 FPS in a game (optimum hardware in place elsewhere). At least, it gains you higher benchmarks in memory-bandwidth tests. Which, again, is useless for anything real-world.

I bet you're wrong. I'm sure there will be 6-slot boards, just like there have been 3-slot boards in the past. Not everyone cares whether their ram will have more (largely unnecessary) memory bandwidth by running quad channel instead of triple channel. Most people would rather have more memory than more memory bandwidth.
