Great CPU

review by nexo
I must have a good chip, becaues i have a stable o.c. at 5.2, i haven't tried pushing it any further. but i went from a 3770, to the 4930 and the performance gains are tangible. is it worth it for a casual gamer like me? probably not, but i still like it, lol. Oh, i'm cooling it with a corsair h100, my mobo is a sabertooth x79, corsair dominator platinum 16gb quad channel kit @ 1866, evga nvidia geforce gtx 780, cooler master 1000 watt power supply, and cooler master storm stryker chassis.

Very Fast and Very Cool

review by bigkahuna360

I traded this from the same guy I got the 3930k from and this CPU is nice and easy to overclock, will definitely run cooler, but, again, is a lottery. Not all CPU's can handle high speed RAM. My chip isn't able to handle anything more than 8GBs of DDR3 2400. If I want my 16GBs usable, then I have to step down to 2133.

This CPU does pretty much the same as its predecessor, my minimum FPS increased a tad bit more (~5FPS) and my gameplay felt just a bit smoother around 50FPS in games.

Fun bit to overclock once you figure out whats causing it to crash, but thats more of Windows fault.This CPU has a max OC of 4.6GHz with unrealistic temps and voltage required. 4.5GHz is attainable with 1.4v and various increases to other voltages, 4.4GHz was easily obtained in 15 minutes at 1.28v and upping PLL to 1.857v. Before overclocking, I idled around 17-22?C with a max load in IBT of 48?C at desktop. After overclocking my idle increased to 25-30?C and my max load with IBT to 60-65?C. Being able to obtain a decent OC above 4.4GHz is a complete lottery. Many won't make it past there, but if you're only gaming, then 4.4GHz is all you need. All overclocking is done on a Noctua NH-D14 2011 CPU Cooler.

Final Thoughts:
People coming from Ivy-Bridge e CPUs won't see much of a difference since this is still 22nm. People coming from LGA 1366, 1155, 1156, 1150 will notice night and day performance. All in all, overclocking this CPU has been an okay experience, but thats Windows fault for not telling me whats wrong other than "WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR". Don't let those few downsides keep you away from this CPU though, it does amazing, even at stock!

Faster Than Ivy-e, Cooler, Fits Same SocketNot worth to some if cooming from Ivy-e
