Not going to lie, I think I decided on the 3970x due to a lack of homework, which your comment quickly prompted me to look into lol. After which i'd have to say, an extra $500 is ridiculous for an extra 3mb of L3 cache. The only thing that would keep me on the fence is the possibility that the 3970x should be a higher binned chip, and have potentially higher overclocks, but if this hasn't been the case then you'd be correct, and I'll be better off with a 3930k.

Additional goal for this build is 5.2ghz stable 24/7, really starting to reconsider the SR1 rads wackosmiley.gif

Thanks! (though there's likely to be some changes to it) Once I start the purchasing / building phase i'll be posting updates with pics - though this is still a ways off smile.gif
