    New 5xx0 isn't more efficient at each core/thread than 4xx0. :confused: But 6xx0 will be more efficient.

    Tbh Linx and OCCT (Linpack) are still the hardest to pass even on X79 just like it was on X58. Prime 95 is a walk in park compared to these 2 on X79 from my experience and testing.

    Nice review. So to confirm you can use your old 2011 cpu waterblocks on 2011-3 right??

    I am with you mate. There is no way that I could wait either for this nor could afford the parts. Well any way not bad OCing stats for an 8 core/ 16 threads cpu. Also I don't want to deal with any possible bugs with DDR4 memory.

    Thanks for the reviews, boss, lot of work there. Seems that 5960X of yours is a bit of a pig with the voltage, some of the other reviews I've glanced over need 1.3 or maybe less for 4.4 GHz, but I guess we'll have to wait and see to see what commercial samples can manage. Best get saving my pennies to pay for one of these beastly things :D

    Im ready to pull the plug on AMD, but on the same note, im ready to just put my current rig under full water and add another 780ti to the mix... Just not sure what to do.... would be nice to get a true 8 core but at the same note Im already running 100+fps on the games I play .

    A 2nd card would be a waste of time. FX cant handle two 780tis. Your best bet would be to get the 382$ 6 core, thats already,what, 50% faster than fx

    This is way better for stability testing on X79. It works on both AMD and Intel processors. Be careful when running it though.

    Really tempted by the the 5960X but part of me thinks that it's probably a better idea to let DDR4 and the X99 platform mature a bit before I take the plunge, my old 980X still does a great job so it's difficult to justify the upgrade.

    Great review though Hilbert, would be nice to see Crysis 3 as part of the CPU benchmarks, really likes more cores.

    Yes ! The H105 used in the reform conforms to that 'old' 2011 socket.

    all we need now is a stellar game that runs optimal only on minimum 6 core cpu.
    no excuses then. though prolly have to wait till xbone2 i dunno ..

    Are we at least getting a Mini ITX mobo for the x99 platform? I keep reading something about the CPU die being too big or some such guessing similar to x79?

    I wanted to build a mini PC if I couldn't grab an 8 core, might be a reasonable build with the 5820K or should I just go for a 4790k z97 and save a grand what do you guys think?

    Star Citizen will.. should push all 6 cores.. and will probably need them once you're in a computational heavy instance, but it will still do well on a quad as well.
