Will an overclocked 3930 offer me much advantage in gaming over an overclocked 2700k?

That's a sticky subject. It is superior in benches but you can't play a bench...

In games the gap is harder to discern. My trifire vs a quadfire.

2600k at 5.2 - 3X 7970 1230/1670 - 4966 -197.1 fps
547

3930k at 5.0 - 4X 7970 1250/1600 - 5737 - 227.7 fps
485



With more gpu clock. You know, with another card I could match it imo.


2600k at 5.2 - 3X 7970 1300/1725 - 5151 -204.5 fps

So whats some of the best MOBO's I can get for the 3830k? Once with the most up to date north and south bridges and PCIE 3.0 and good overclocking capabilities?

Dunno your timeframe, but Asus will have their 7970 DC2 fixed soon. That card will mate to a ROG Rampage 4 Extreme giving you the perfect combo to bypass OCP. If I were to build a 2011 system, that would be the combo. I was going to do that too, 3 DC2s on water with a R4E, but Asus had some issues with the DC2 so I skipped it. Given time Asus should be able to buff the DC2 to a nice shine.

Do you know if my existing cooler will work on the 3930?

If you're going to spend $600 alone on a processor, then you probably should spend a little more than $30 to cool it. wink.gif I have one of those GeminII coolers on my Q6600 HTPC rig. Its okay, but honestly it struggles to keep my old Q6600 cool enough. I'd shoot for something more high end for a cooler. There's no shame in dropping down to a 3770k (when released) instead with a good 1155 motherboard. Especially if your build is strictly gaming.

It SHOULD bolt up, if you buy the right mounting kit. But I honestly don't see it holding that chip cool enough if you plan on overclocking it really far.

For just the CPU only, you can try building a custom loop, pick up a Rasa RX240 kit (replace the tubing), or you can make it too easy on yourself and get a Corsair H100. (All of these are over $100 easy usually). If that's too much, a good solid air cooler like the Megahalems or the Silver Arrow. The Silver Arrow is one of the highest end air coolers and will be about on par with a Corsair H80.

Motherboards....
3-way SLI / Crossfire boards:

4 way SLI / Crossfire boards (not sure on the last one for SLI, but does do 4 way crossfire)

Just pick one that has the features you want to eventually be able to use (or use now).

RAM, the Ripjaw Z 2133's are beasts. I've got the 1.35v 1600 sticks, and mine do 2200 on LGA 1155 (limited by my BCLK). Those 2133 Ripjaw Z's should do 2400MHz or better honestly. Might as well go for 16GB (4x4GB) too if you honestly really think you're going to use that beastly CPU too.

This build is going to get very expensive, very quickly...... I can't wait to see it all finished. smile.gif
