You see, Quad Channel memory. Better upgrade path (To even Xeons if you want to, the LGA 1155 is DEAD). More PCIe 3 lanes. (40 vs 16). Better motherboards. What more?

And yet the you're still on the lower rung with a Quadcore Chip vs going with X79 series for what it was meant for with a HexaCore.

I know it was meant for a OCTO-CORE but if you can use a Quad Core on it that is better than a similar priced Quad Core? Isn't that gonna be better? You say that if it's not meant for Quad Core, I won't use it for Quad Core. If it was REALLY not meant for Quad Cores then why is the i7-3820 on the market? I bet that Intel knows more than you do about processors.

What I'm saying is when people are willing to spend the money to go X79, they aren't gonna stay with a Quadcore chip.

I never said the X79 wasn't MEANT for Quad but the point is WHY WOULD YOU STICK with a Quadcore chip when you have the availability to go Hexa. Its just a waste.

And what the hell are you going on about Octocore? intel doesn't have a 8 core SB-E, nor are they planning on a Octocore IB-E. Only HEXA (SIX) core processor.

Well for one, the 3820 is 285$ while the 3930k is 484$. 200$ difference, those 200 bucks can get you a motherboard. This 3820 is kinda overkill for gaming anyways, a 2500k is more than enough. So if the rig is for gaming only there is no reason to go 3930k.
And did you see the architecture of the SB-E? It has two cores disabled because if they enable them it would go too much over the TDP. smile.gif
