Summary: This processor goes to much fast. Are incredible, for the price you get more than you expected, very fast in any of the works that it performs from a game, passing for render 3d, to multicore processing.
Summary: WOW, blown away by the power of this processor. At first I felt left down, but it really showed me it's power when I upgraded from CS5 to Adobe CC. The rendering power, and multi tasking power for video editing, and After Effects work blows me away. I purchased this after checking out the systems I use at work, and I was impressed. I think this CPU in combination with the other computer parts I bought really have my work computer beat.
Summary: I build lots of computers, and I was so impressed with how this thing performed I just had to get one for myself. I know its more expensive, but it is so much better than any AMD processor out there. you get what you pay for and intel always stands behind their product if there is ever an issue. so even if your don't spring for this processor, I would strongly urge you to stick with intel.
Summary: For now i have at stock speed. I'm using this primarily for rendering in 3ds Max Design, both mental ray and Vray and i'm happy with the results. Coming from a six core AMD Phenom, this thing is amazingly fast. For now i'll stay with Intel as it is much faster for my purposes.
Summary: This board is the best you're going to get for the money. I built my system from the case up. Put in Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800), EVGA GeForce GTX760 FTW with ACX Cooler 4GB GDDR5 256Bit Dual-Link GPU, Asus BC-12B1ST 12X SATA Blu-ray Combo Internal DVD+/-RW Drive, Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor 3.2 Ghz 12 MB Cache LGA 2011, Corsair Professional Series HX 1050 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold, NZXT Aperture M Internal 5.25-Inch Mesh...
Summary: this chip is very fast I was down loading from the net and rendering a cinema 4d project at the same time and the cpu did not get above 80 degrees. rendering was much faster than my quad core.
Summary: Very nice. I am using it over 18 month now. Never crashed or created any kind of problems. As an architect I am doing lots of renderings and working with different versions of REVIT. Never any kind of problems experienced so far. Thank you so much.
Summary: Pros: Extremely fast, doesn't run too hot, easily overclocked Cons: A bit pricey I went with the 3930K for a new computer in May 2012, and to this day (December 2013), it still runs just as well as day 1. Even though Ivy Bridge, Haswell, and Ivy Bridge E CPUs have since been released, I don't see a reason to upgrade. The six cores turbo-boosted to 3.8 GHz is more than enough for most people.
