...good to know ! I installed 4004 before they pulled it and had some issues around memory timing and profiles, though they got solved eventually, Since 4004, they now have basic Ivy-E support for beta-testers, and that does translate into potentially different memory management affecting our oc profiles

In my opinion, of course, but I doubt I'm the ONLY one who feels this way....

That is probably matter of personal preference nothing more. I had opportunity to ditch 3820 and go with 3970x for the price of 3930 but I did not go that path, I would rather wait for IB-E and see what do they bring on the table, really have high hopes in IMC, but we'll see. Second reason is I don't need 3970 or 3930, sure it would be nice to have one but i won't use it in proper way so...
Aldo...I'm now considering going NV path >780 and replace 7970 which served me good, just to indulge my green curiosity while I still can. smile.gif

Don't give up so soon. Is there any bios visual changes comparing to older ones?

not that i could see, have to try all combinations again, it like the very first time. its possable with the ivy bridge-e coding you have to overclock from a different angle now.

I would never discuss a build with my wife , there is no way in hell I would have been able to justify my current rig to her . What I have and what I need are worlds apart biggrin.gif

I choose the Extreme because it has 8 memory card slots as well as 2 on-board USB 3.0 19 pin slots - lets me add more USB 3.0 stuff if I want.

Is there an advantage the Formula has over the Extreme?

Edit: did some reading in these forums and found no real appreciable differences for what amounts to almost twice the price. Unless epeen (just learned what this term means - hehe!) is important! wink.gifbiggrin.gif

Am I wrong?

lachen.gif ...well, I see the usual suspects have made their usual 'high-school parking lot' jokes because they don't have a 3970X

But seriously folks, it all depends on the applications you plan to run now and later...We use BOTH 3970X and 3930K in a commercial (mature !) environment as well as Xeons...the 3970X is a cheaper alternative than for example the similar Xeon E4610. thumb.gif

It basically comes down to two differentiating factors: 1.) The 3970x has an EXTRA 3 MB of cache over the 3930K and 2.) the 3970X are the highest-binned Intel chips of that series. The extra cache makes a world of difference when you run multiple instances SQL ENTERPRISE and enterprise-level databases along with their extra web server hosts, but not necessarily in other apps.

...but for a nice home-build for gaming and benching, you are better off to take the extra money you save with the 3930k over the 3970X and put it into the mobo / GPU video solution...as to what board, again depends on current and intended subsequent use...I use the Rampage IV Extreme because I run four GPU cards (so I need the extra PCIe slots), and later on in the fall when I switch to Ivy-E with the next gen X-series mobo, this board and its extra PCIe slots will host multiple expansion cards for NICs and RAID arrays supporting web servers.

...now back to the Saturday Cartoons on the tele biggrin.gif
Thanks for that explanation. As I see it, I'm going to be fine for a long time with the RIVE, my 3930K and my 32 gigs ram (4 x 8 Gig 2400MHZ G-skill Trident X). I'm not into benching: I see no reason to throw money at a box just to see some number appear on my monitor. biggrin.gifwink.gif
I'm doing video processing stuff in Adobe Premier Pro, and some 3D CAD stuff as well: thus this processor, and the memory. I've decided to use twin GTX-670s instead of buying new cards: that will be something I will save up for later on, and upgrade them to twin 780s or better.
My current computer is: Intel Core Duo E6850 @ 3 Ghz, 2 Gb of ram, running on windows XP Home Ed. with an Nvidea GeForce 8800 GT with I don't know how much memory in it... When I bought it, I was happy with the performance...

You think I'm going to notice a performance difference? wink.gifbiggrin.gif I can't wait for Tuesday / Wednesday: computer build day!!

Few people actually need all the Extreme extras. We just wanted them mostly. biggrin.gif

That was my thinking. Especially since I'm not going to be doing much or any of the processes that the 3970X does better than the 3930K :

I am sooo glad I found this forum: the quality of the responses and the time people are taking to give me full answers is great. I'm not a computer specialist by any means, but I am in the top 5% of my field: HVAC & energy transfer (looking at making a killer water-cooled system). So if any of you have any questions about that, please private message me with them, and I will respond in kind.

Agreed....

I'm happy with the extra memory card slots & USB 3.0 socket: I will be looking for a USB 3.0 card reader in the future. Right now, they all seam to offer a USB 3.0 slot, but the card reader is USB 2.0...
