The Asus Maximus V Extreme can and will overclock that 3770K as far as the silicon can handle, just know it won't be the motherboard that will limit your overclock! That will be up to how much voltage your 3770K can handle, are you aware of the delidding thread here on OCN? It's well worth it and the temp drops of 15-30C are typical and allow you to push more voltage through your silicon while still having temps under control.

Microcenter is that deal. My 2600K is a beast of a chip, a friend wants it, but like I said it's the lottery & I won. Not parting with that chip.

Yeah that's my front runner. MIVE is a great board, but I must move on.

Have been doing a lot of research to see if my plans nee to change as to go 2011 instead of 155. I still haven't seen any tests that validates a switch to 2011. I see they have been testing this theory as early as 2010...

I was just looking at the performance difference between the 3770k and 3930k and 3960x they all about 10%.. very shocking for the price difference..and some tests the 3770k is better

That's about average. I kept my Q6700 for years, but when I read up on the 2600K & saw the comparison it was a no brainer. The thing I'm trying to see is what I will lose in Raw HP with my cards. A Co-worker has a 3930K & it encodes a 700MB movie 34 seconds quicker than my 2600K using ConverXToDVD....

When you run a multi threaded bench like cinebench, the gulf between hexacore and higher cpus vs quad core cpus becomes evident.

I understand, but benching does nothing for me. I'm talking about for my uses.... The 3930K is a great CPU, but I don't think I will use it for what it is for. I won't have three screens & I don't do a lot of production work.. I burn a movie here & there

Benching is a way of quantifying the difference obviously. For the real world, if you don't need the multi-threaded power, there's no need to spend the premium for something you won't capitalize on right?

True, but I'm not so worried about the CPU as I said before, I'm worried about the cards performance between the two platforms

Too much see-sawing man.

If you were starting from scratch, I would go x79 with a RIVE and 3820, easy. 3820 is the same with a 3930 clock for clock all the way upto 5.1ghz and beyond. And a 3820 has no problems feeding quad gpu. The reason I keep mentioning a 3820 is because it has price parity with the 3770k. If you were dead set on a 3930k then I'm not sure what the point of this thread is so I leave it off.

Since you already have a 3770K, the obvious choice is to get a MVE. I haven't seen any z77 quadfire 7970 rigs. I would love to bench against one when that time comes. Maybe you could slap four 7970s in yours and we could roll with it? The slightly higher IPC of Ivy should balance the penalty of the PLX, so it could be a wash... who knows.
