990 has 10 more e-peen points then the 980, isn't that how you figure your e-peen score?

That said, the 2600K has over 1610k Epeen points than the 990X!

They should have called it 990xx and they would have sold twice as many imo

No it should have been 990xxx then it would count for not only e-peen but also e-pron

Because (some) people think they would have a better processor than the others. It's all about being up there - the top. Anyways, even people with lots of money would not buy this, so they must have to be I.T. guys like us with money.

If you asked me if I can afford to buy a 1000-bucks-CPU, I will say yes, but I won't buy 1 chip. I'd buy three 2600Ks and fold them.

I guess it's all about prestige.

Well, it could be due to laziness. The Core i7 970 OCs the same and comes with the same (good) cooler, but it has no unlocked multiplier.

Nah, who am I kidding. I think it's just stupidity. If you need twelve threads the 970 is $400 less and comes with the same awesome (for a stock one) cooler that will allow you to OC by a very good amount.

Why even 970 when you could purchase a 2600K build for the same amount, but with more GPU's in tow?
