DizZz only picked a 3820 to drive his folding farm, though honestly he could have picked a cheap E5-2603 as well
Why go for a 3770k? A 3820 is going to be unnoticeably slower/faster and offers the upgrade path to a 4930K/whatever the cheap hexa IB-E is. I can't speak for everyone but I'd rather buy the 3820 (Or IB equivalent) now, get a Gigabyte UP4 and spend the money I've saved from not getting the 3930K on another GPU, then get the highest end chip I can afford when they're second hand and a hell of a lot cheaper.

Nothing, IB ran hot at launch due to there being too much TIM between the IHS and the die so delidding helped a crazy amount, but any recent chip is fine.
Source: Another thread here and my i5 never going above 80c under my D14 without being delidded.
I better update mine
. I went a bit over but I can afford the $300 or so extra.
The way I'd have the screens is the 21:9 one as my main one with the two 1080p IPS screens on either side, I'd split the 21:9 into two separate ones using the software that comes with it (So it's effectively two 1080p screens without a bezel in the middle) and then use Eyefinity to make all 4 1080p screens go as one assuming I can do that.
