3930k or 4930k

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Wanting to upgrade my 3820, and looking at the above 2 on eBay, I could get the 3930k for around $250, while the 4930k goes for closer to $400. I mostly game, but I also handbrake a lot of bluray rips, which is the reason I'm looking at the 6core. Is the 4930k worth the extra money?

$150 more for the 4930k, not worth the extra money. Although the memory controller is a lot more stronger.

You could also go for the Xeon 1650:

Xeon version of the 3930k.

The 1650 V2 version is the equivalent of a 4930k. The Xeons will work without issue on your sig board, the cpus are unlocked aswell.

the 4930K and the 3930K are identical 6 core chips except for one being 32nm whilst other being 22nm (with newer instruction sets as well). I'd get the 3930K. But as MrTooshort suggested, the Xeon would also be better. but you won't be able to overclock those.

The 1650 is unlocked and can be overclocked:

I had no idea Xeons had unlocked multipliers, thought they were always locked.

Most 16xx Xeons are unlocked. The six core and up are all unlocked it appears. Xeon 1603 is locked, confirmed by a member here:

Read on and see how iinversion's 1650 overclocks.

What about ES chips? Or should I avoid those?
