this is exactly what i was thinking. he isn't like upgrading from a 4-5 yr old platform and deciding on SB, SB-E or wait for IVY....

this is a very big SIDE step ...and its not even consider an upgrade. gaming wise the 2500k is going be exact same as the 3820. there are reviews out there even +50% of the games the 2500k is the same as the 3860x.

so if you are doing more applications and need the HT...then go with 2600k.

if you are itching to spend money...either SLI that 570...or go buy a 680 or 7970.

Maybe he needs the PCIe lanes? Or memory bandwidth? A better upgrade path? Maybe just a second rig?

Except this is a side-grade, not an upgrade. If OP was going to a hex-core SB-E then I'd understand.

It most certainly is not a Side Grade. The 3820 may not be leaps and bounds above the 2500k or even the 2600k but it is indeed a nice stepping stone on the superior platform and OC's very well. The platform itself is worth it if the OP needs what it can and will offer.

It's only not a side grade IF OP needs extra RAM (board he's getting only has 4 dimm slots) or is planning on running triple graphics cards. Which is why I asked why they wanted to change to X79 and a 3820.

I was thinking about doing the same thing, but then I did some research. it seems that the 3820 is no better than the 2600k and the X79 motherboards are way too expensive. Plus when you want to upgrade only high end CPUs which are not worth the money to an overclocker will be available to you. Ivy is close you might as well wait for the improved performance, cheaper motherboards and being able to upgraded to a processor in the future that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Plus I read that on the X79 chipset the RAM bandwidth suffers and it actually slower when talking to the cpu (something a long those lines) because of the 8 slots. Everything I read said don't touch this platform.

TL;DR it is a complete waste of your money and the 3820 is a redundant cpu on a way too expensive platform (both present and future) that has choke (bottle neck) issues with the dual RAM channels that actually makes it slower than the previous platform.

Ivy is so close! Like 2 freakin' weeks!

DON'T DO IT!!!!!!

Thread Starter 
It will be replacing my sig rig, which is accurate except it's all back on stock cooling for the time being. I may end up with a triple gpu setup. I've been trying to buy a 680 since launch, but due to work hours I haven't seen them in stock...ever. Not sure yet, but have been throwing around ideas of 3-way 670 Ti's, single or 2-way 680's, triple 7950's, etc. I just have to wait and see what develops with the rest of the kepler lineup. Completely unnecessary, I know, but it's more for hobby enjoyment than anything else.
