Go big or go home.

Don't go big, then change your mind!

My thoughts exactly but I never had an 1155 build or a custom build at all. I've been on a laptop with an i7 and a 5870m on it. So this is my first actual build. (Besides the P4 build that consisted of scraps and a that antique thing "AgP slot" lolol)

But I might as well go for the 3930k cause I love performance.

I couldn't get the 3820 as stable as I would like at 4.88GHz and 5GHz was unfortunately out of the reach of my sample. I can't really complain about 4.75GHz from a $285 chip though, especially without resorting to anything too exotic from a cooling standpoint. Overclocking is also extremely effortless thanks to the new bclk options on SNB-E. Although the Core i7 3820 isn't an unlocked part, that doesn't limit how far (or how easily) it can be overclocked. A big part of the ease of overclocking is due to how good of a job Intel did on the DX79SI BIOS options, but from what we've seen the third party boards also do a decent job of simplifying the process.
I think once the launch hits we will start seeing 5.0ghz overclocks from the 3820

I think your right, I don't need a hex core, but a 5ghz quad on x79 sounds awesome.

You could lose your mind completely and spring for a 3960X like I just did! Screw waiting is what I say!

I am sooo tempted to do the same. But I would not have the cash for a 7970 if I did that.
It's either wait 5 days for the 3930k and get a 7970. or no graphics card with just a 3960x
Choice is clear to me

I think unless you are going for some exotic cooling or use some application that would specifically benefit from the 25% more cache spending the $400 on the 3960X is a complete waste of money. Judging from Intel over the last 5 years, their yields have been very consistent and the high end chips have not realized much better overclocking potential than the entry level enthusiast chips despite any "binning" that may occur.

I don't think the 3820 is worth it unless you specifically only need 4 cores and need your computer to run within a certain power envelope. Although all the 2011 processors have 130W TDP the fact that the 3820 is a completely different die and has two fewer cores directly translates into it consuming less power.

Are you sure its a different die? AFAIK its the same die as 3930k/3960x but with two additional cores disabled. I could be wrong though...
