They're in between an i7 7700k and an i7 8700k for about $110 on ebay. If you can find a good deal on the motherboard, then its totally worth the effort, and its fun.
Still seems like a waste unless he just has a better X79 CPU laying around.

Wings of a feather, just pass by trolling, not helping the convo at all. Hilarious.

I know that there are CPUs better than E5-2687W, such as 10-core Xeon E5-2690 V2. E5-2690 V2 costs an arm and a leg though. There is even 12-core Ivy Bridge CPU out there. I like E5-2687W because its the best Sandy Bridge CPU available and it has PCI-Express 3.0 unlike i7-3930K.

I also have far more modern PC. I wanted to build X79 platform just for fun.

If you want to overclock you should stick to the 3930K or the e5-1650 since they are both unlocked CPUs. Supposedly there is also one 8 core CPU that can overclock on X79 but definitely nothing with more cores than that. I built an x79 e5-1650 system about a year ago, pretty straight forward and pretty good results with the OC. Had it running quad channel 2133mhz ram with the CPU OCed to 4.2ghz. It could get to about 80c under full load but it was definitely stable.

If you're going to game with it go for the 6 core or if you find the 8 core that can OC. The lower clock speed at stock for sandy bridge will hurt a lot for gaming performance.

The 3930k is very similar to the e5-1650. Your 3930K should OC at least as well as my e5-1650 did.

Trolling?

Really, I gave a valid reason as to why he would want a different CPU other than a 3930K, He also said in his OP that he had both CPUs. The Xeons offer great bang for buck, he could sell the i7 and get the xeon for next to nothing. OP seems to have a working system (and a fried board), what more is there to add?

I'm not saying the op is trolling... Really not sure why you would think that unless you didn't pay any attention at all to what was said in this thread.

And as I already said, only a few xeons can OC and depending on what he's trying to do, could be preferable to use one that can OC.
