The 3960x was £1000 / $1850 when I got my 3820 which was only £220. The 3820 vantage CPU score at 5ghz is 34,000 which is comparable to the more expensive end of the line and 6c-12t is rarely used. And I will only ever buy asus rog boards cause you get what you pay for, apart from my sr2 smile.gif

The motherboard and psu are the two things that shouldn't be skimped on imo. You made a smart choice picking this awesome board, even though you aren't running a 6 core.

I took this advice when I was first learning computers and now with more knowledge, I see why.

very true, a lot of people ask me about there parts when buying a new build and i always recommend spending as much as you can on the motherboard. They always say why get this one when its double the price and don't do nothing different, i say to them it's double for a reason

did you forget about the 3930K? it is the 3960X with 3MB less L3 and about $550. Seriously x79 is such a waste on a 3820.

Was x58 a waste on the i7 920 (or any of the other quad core i7's)? I really don't understand this argument at all. I've owned 3930k's and 3820's and was happy with both, I see no reason why people hate on it so much.

x58 chipset only offered 4c 8t for about 2 years before the gulftowns came out for the chipset. x79 was offered with 6c 12t CPU's so it dosent really make sense to buy into a HEDT chipset with a 4c 8t. if you want that then go with the cheaper mainstream and have the same performance.

@rbby how is the 3820 comparable to the 3930K and 3960X? my 3930K @ 4.5GHz gets ~somewhere like 55,000 in the CPU part of 3dmark vantage. so...is that comparable to the 3820's score of 34,000 at 5GHz? Additionally, 6c 12t is used a lot, just because your games dont use all the cores or threads dosent mean that 6c 12t isnt used at all.

Thats not really the point, people continued to recommend the 920 when the hex-core gulftowns came out anyways. You clearly hate this CPU, did it kick your dog or something? With the price of X79 boards having gone way down, you can get the 3820 and a decent board for less than a 3770k and a board with matching features. Obviously I don't recommend it to everyone when most people don't want or need 40 PCI-E lanes for anything in particular, but it does have its place.

yeah because the gulftowns came too late to the table. if all you wanted to do was game, then its silly to buy a 1,000 dollar 6c 12t cpu. but when you have a 6c 12t cpu sitting at about 550 dollars retail (the 3930K) then why spend 300 dollars on a lesser CPU? if you are at all planning a x79 build, then im sure you can shell out the extra 250 for a vastly better CPU.

and when the 3930k came out it was around £550 - $1300 waay more than the $500 3820 when i got and add to the mix 2133mhz ram cpu mb and ssd's set me back over £1100 at the time or $2400 adding the extra for the 3930k was way to much for me. And if your saying i need this board for a 3930k and up whats the problem with getting this board at the time plus a 3820 and then later getting a 3930k, your dumb

tbh i don't care, i have a sr2 as well with 12c-24t and idgaf what i buy i don't even play games much 10-15 hours a month but i still got my 2 7950's, why? cause i liked it. take your negative attitude to another forum.

Not necessarily, you should really stop making assumptions like that.

I went for a RIVE for my 3820 as I made the mistake before on getting a lower end board, I wanted a high end board so when I wanted to I could pick up a 3930K or a IB-E CPU.

We're not arguing that the 3820 is on par with the 3930K, there's a reason the 3930K is so much more, but frankly not everyone needs 6 cores, some people might just want to get a gaming rig that has better support for 3+ graphics cards and not spend extra money on a 3930K that won't really offer a significant boost in gaming.

If you don't think the 3820 is worth the money, then that's great for you, but berating other people's choice of CPU is stupid, I could just equally argue why did you bother getting a measly 3930K when you could just fork out the extra few hundred dollars for a 3960X.
