Technically the SB is cheating because of AVX instruction which the 980X doesn't even support, and next to no programs support.
If the 980X supported AVX I guarantee the gflops will be at least 170.

Good luck finding a decent motherboard that supports SB for the next month or so

How is that cheating, and if mean absolutely nothing since it doesn't and will never.

Technically the 980x is cheating because it has 2 more core, right?

Also bashing new code because hardly anything is using it is spot on.

Quite honestly, it looks like the answer you're looking for is sell the 980x, get a 2600k. In 8 months, get the Ivy Bridge EE. In 4 months after that, get the next Ivy Bridge EE. Couple months after that, get another EE. Seems like this really shouldn't be an issue here since money obviously isn't a problem...

Or...you could get a 2600k and donate the extra cash to charity to help the world.

If it were me, I'd keep the 980x for the extra cores, and still donate to charity of course

Not gonna waste my breath if you've already made up your mind

KEEP YOUR 980x!!!

While SB might be quite a bit more powerful than previous gen i7s, there are NO SB CPUs that can match a 980x, simply because there are no SB chips with 6 cores. The 980x is still the absolute top dog.

Or is this too late?

Keep the freakin 980x! If you are a "enthusiast overclocker" as you say, SB will be out of fun as soon as you get 5.0Ghz... easily ... lolol

The fun part of overclocking is that ... getting 4.5Ghz... hardly and with much effort and always thinking "oh man, i'm going to blow the s**t out of this thinggy!" ehehhee

But, now, serious, keep the 980x man ... you won't see anything performing better... only your benchmarks so you can show then in the foruns

Some time ago i decided that everything i owned, i wouldn't sell to buy downgraded stuff, even if they are amazing like the SB

So... keep the thing, get some money together towards 2012 and then beat the crap out of Ivy's

And... i prefer the number.. 1366 is higher than 1155 ... lolol.

If you need the money... than, ok... sell everything and get the SB... But you won't be like "Woah, what a difference " ... ehehe it's more "Ok, i got some money back"

This is just sad...why every bad things always happen to me?

Asus Maximus IV Extreme is out of stock everywhere in the earth after the new Intel's chipset issue...i just can't wait 1-2 months /cry.

Well, for now i decided to sell my i7-980X and use my old i7-930 till they start releasing P67 motherboards
after then, i'll buy the P67 motherboard then sell my mem & EVGA LGA1366 mobo.

Ok... that's a good option to get part of the money back
But, why did you buy the 980x then?

I'm not flaming, i'm just curious because you're in a "delicate" situation there. Is it about the money or the expectations over the 980x weren't fulfilled?

Even with the i7 930 you won't get huge improvements with SandyBridge... ( i mean, if you have your 930 overclocked )
