I know someone brought one today, he sold his 980x for 850$ and get the 990x for 1100$ LOL! That kind of guy with GTX 480 tri-sli and 470 for physx, dual case, waterchiller... Overkill in everything!

Useless? yep! But who care?

Why not. Anyone that want the fastest stock CPU and doent want to overclock because overclocking brings instability and they might need the PC for work. Also it will overclock better.

It's not useless if your running 3 1080p lcd's in surround. All that power is eat'n up very nicely.

I would love to get $850 for mine!! I'll take $750 and pay for shipping.

The 990X is supposed to be the last of the series CPU... it's also the best one. It makes no sense to go from 980X to 990X unless of course you can sell your 980X for a decent price and just pay the difference for the 990X.

For others coming from non-EE chips, the 990X is the one to get.

This is the perfect step up IMO. My one concern is whether Intel might release the rumored 995X in April... which will make that chip the "best" in the series. Oh well..

it makes plenty of sense to me. I've spent about $8k on my setup and will be using it for the next 3 years. If I can get one of these in there at 5ghz, that will relieve some of the cpu bottleneck in some games for surround gaming.

LOL for the price of a 990x you can almost buy 2x970's that , with some luck, overclock just as high.

Great value right durrrr intels.

The 990x has already broken the overclocking records of both the 970 & 980x, also the unlocked multi & improved IMC are a + over both for those who can really make use of it.
I'd like to get one until I see what ivy bridge is all about.

I wouldn't think of getting one if it was the same thing. It's going to overclock way better than a 970 that's for sure. You would need a blck over 220 just to get 5.2ghz with a 970. No way in hell would you get one to 7ghz, you'd need a blck of like 290+. Ain't happening.

Wy would anyone get a 990x? Well I had allready ordered the following computer a week before the I 2600K came out. Normally I buy my own parts but this guys prices are a lot lower than what I pay at newegg. It's taken a while to get it built because I changed the gpu's, the cpu and added the ssd.

CoolerMaster HAF-X
Intel Core i7-980X
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 12GB (6 x 2GB)
CORSAIR Professional Series AX1200
3 x Palit GTX580 3gb ram Graphics Cards
2 x Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200
120gb intel SSD
LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner
Lite-On 24X DVD Writer
Windows 7 64 professional edition.

This setup is costing me $3025 (a bit over invoice). Asked how much more for the 990x when it came out. They priced it at $40 more. The question for me is not, why buy the 990x, but why the 980x in the first place? I don't think too many 980x owners are going to swap for a 990x if it's going to cost them a few hundred bucks extra and all the new gear on the horizon.

I need all the horsepower I can get now to push the three 580's. Next up will be three HP zr30w monitors. This setup is mostly for flight simulation and a bit for FPS games. I hope that I can eke just a bit more out of the 990x than a 980x on air.

When the 2011 socket has been out for 6 or 7 months I'll get that if it clocks a lot higher than the 990x. Flight sims are very cpu hungry. Probably go the watercooling route then. I plan on keeping the next 2011 system for at least 3 years. This 990x setup is basically to hold me over for about a year and will then be sold or parted out.

Only thing missing is an aftermarket heatsink. The Archon is too wide so the 1st pci slot is blocked. The Silver Arrow is blocking the 1st ram slot. Even contemplating to just try the stock heatsink with two Thermalright
TY-140 fans if I can figure out how to attach them to the heatsink. If I can get it to 4.5ghz 24/7 that way, I'll do that. If not Some ram modules are going to bite the dust so I can put in a Silver Arrow. Corsair 70 is too noisy.

Anyone here ever put the 2 Ty-140's on a 980x heatsink?
