Read that tomshardware article I posted as well.
Ignorance is bliss I suppose if you don't want to look at it.
I have looked at reviews. lots of them. been following BD since before it was released. Liek i have said. reviews dont mean much compared to real preformance. which most of you bashing BD dont have. I do. I have build 5+ BD systems, owned 1, am in the process of building another along with a 3930K system. There are reviews of the 2500k/8120 with some of them being really close in sc2/skyrim and others with the 2500k wooping on the 8120. civ, ill give you. for some reason that game HATES bd cpu's LOL. to me, and again, i have experience with both these systems there is not that big of a difference.
And please dont bring into the whole MC deals into this. MC is only good for like 1% of the population of overclock.net. if you can bring that in, than the 2500k is $170 overpriced cause i got my 8120 for free.

Yes I'm aware 95% of OCN if not more do not live close to a MC, just saying.
Also, Im curious, If more cores = better (for programming), why did you get a 3930k...... the BD has more cores!
This thread is going nowhere, and it's always the people accusing others of being fanboys, that actually are the fanboy trolls. (not directed at you Papas) I'd go back a page and listen to Pioneerisloud, the most level headed accurate post of the thread.
there it went. then a $170 2500k is $170 more than people got a fx-8120 for(not just me, atleast 10+ people got them free too)
I got my FX-8120 for free my AMD Retail Access. I got my 3930K for $170 from Intel Retail Edge. thats why i got those.
TO be honest, if i hadnt got the 8120 for free, i prob would have never owned a BD chip. but it opened my eyes and showed me how great BD can be.Edited by Papas - 6/21/12 at 3:06pm
