Either way INTC has a very slight short percentage. Around 4%. I think most of those are betting on an overall market sell off. INTC is too cheap to short plus the shorts have to pay the divy.
My daughter is starting College this year and we (I) can't wait. She will be using this computer when she comes home. :)
Looks like a nice system. Don't forget the SSD for the OS. I bought the Samsung 840PRO-256GB on sale for $179.99 Haven't decided on graphics yet. I'm still concerned about the price difference. CPU-World compares it with Haswell and others and not a huge difference for the money. Wonder why the 4930K and the 4960X are so much more expensive?
The one I bought does not say it's compatible with the 2011 socket but it does say CPU Support: Intel: Core i7 Extreme / Core i7 / Core2 Extreme / Core2 Quad / Core2 Duo / Pentium / Celeron AMD: Phenom II X4 / Phenom II X3 / Phenom X4 / Phenom X3 / Athlon X2 / Athlon / Sempron
I think it will physically fit on the CPU correctly but I'm wondering if it will cool it. The Fractal Design Define R4 case I bought allows for a top mount water cooler. Not sure what I will go with but I'll keep the hyper 212 cooler anyway. $15.99 after the rebate.
I would be scared to death to take the lid off an $580 CPU. I would have to practice on some older worthless processors first. Does it really work that well? Speaking of cooling. I'm looking at air. I've bought the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler.
Do you think this will be enough if I go with six core 4930K?
Check that......... I meant to say it will support 64 GB of memory.
I'm thinking very seriously about doing the same. The 4930K is $250 more on newegg. That's a chunk of cash to lay down for the little extra you get. Operating frequency on the 4930K is slightly less than the 4820K. 3.4GHz and 3.6GHz respectively. The 4930K does have six cores and more L3 cache at 12mb. Four Channel DDR3 support. It doesn't say on newegg but I assume it will support 64mb. Tough decision. Newegg has the 4930K for $579.99. Add in the more expensive LGA 2011 motherboard and you're looking at around $900 for just the CPU and Motherboard. It will be a computer to be proud of, I hope.
Seems to me the more watts the more power for a desktop.
Thinking of going the new 2011 socket.
I'm not interested in saving energy. Haswell is nice but appears to me
to be developed for a laptop or battery computer.
Looks like a hoss.
Anyone know anything about it.
