I would point out that test was done on a 3930X, while the one I pointed out was done on a 4770K (which is far more comparable to what he is going to be using), but I am sure you already took that into consideration. I would also point out that he really wants a Node 804, and that the 240M fits in it, while the X61 doesn't., but I am sure you took that into consideration, too. Just like you took the fact that he has access to the 280L which outperforms the X61 into consideration.
Maybe you should try to help him build his
system instead of trying to build your own.
Don't forget to recommend the HE-01.....
