    The 2011 socket with 3960 just eats it for lunch in just about any bench you can think of. If performance is the only metric here there is no choice, it's the 2011 socket. If you are on a budget then all bets are off.
    The 3960 is a beast and shuts down 26K, no questions asked.
    But we are considering the 3820 which is presently the lowest range of 2011 chips.
    After gathering some information, the majority of results shows the 26K to be superior to the 3820.

    To me the relevance of 2011 is clearly hexa core CPUs, the features other than more RAM capacity, are pretty much the same as with 1155.

    You are right though, if I had the money for 3960 or even 3930 I would definitely go for 2011.
    After checking I have found that the 3820 isnīt lucrative enough for me in order to go 2011. Especially the onboard graphics factor of 1155 is too enticing, and would not be worth sacraficing for this chip, since its performance is similar or sometimes even inferior to the 26K.

    Ivybridge is supposedly rated at the same price point as the 26K, so I think I will go for it, despite my prior disaproval of it.
    Also by that I will have the option to upgrade to Kepler, should I not be satisfied with my 580 Lightning anymore and a second one would cost too much.

    Some z77 manufacturers (Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte) claimed that overclocking Ivy was a very intense experience with very good performance.

    When did you guys choose for the 2011 chips?
    Did you do so intentionally, because Ivy is not relevant to you?

    Correction:

    It is not currently possible to saturate the bandwidth at PCI Express 2.0 specifications with the current graphics hardware on the market, as of 3/20/2012.

    Saying that one will never saturate the bandwidth is like saying that Stan will never upgrade to a better performing processor.

    Also nothing was ever mentioned about saturating bandwidth.

    I merely pointed out that there would most definitely be a performance difference between a 580 SLI setup run by 2x16 Lanes compared to a 580 SLI setup run by 2x8 Lanes.
    Even though the performance difference would not be considerable to most people, it would most certainly be present.
    And with Quad SLI it becomes even more clear.

    That is all I said and frankly it is true.
    I did not say that the slots were fully saturated, just that there definitely was a performance difference between 2x 16X Lanes and 2x8X Lanes, may it be ever so small, regardless of how much bandwidth is really used or not.

    So Death there really was no reason to become unstable like this.

    The 3820 is a hexa core CPU though, that fact alone gives it relevance...
    i thought the 3820 was a quad core...

    It is
    But it also is the only 2011 socket Quad Core CPU.

    I mistyped earlier sorry if I got you a wrong idea.

    3930 and > are all hexa.

    You know that the 3930 will clock on average just as good as the 3960x right.

    I have two of them here, the 3820 is more or less taking the place of the core i7 920/930 with the right board, and cooling this chip can go past 4.5GHz. Pow, you do NOT own or have even tried any Sandy Bridge E chips, where as I have all 3 chips, 3960X, 3930K, 3820 and more X79 boards than you can shake a stick at, so please do not try to tell me what these chips are capable of doing.

    Jim, check out Tony's 5GHz club, we have members that have hit 5.4GHz with a 2500K and water cooling, it's also a known fact that more 2500K chips can hit 5GHz than 2600K chips

    The 3960 is a beast and shuts down 26K, no questions asked.
    But we are considering the 3820 which is presently the lowest range of 2011 chips.
    After gathering some information, the majority of results shows the 26K to be superior to the 3820.

    To me the relevance of 2011 is clearly hexa core CPUs, the features other than more RAM capacity, are pretty much the same as with 1155.

    You are right though, if I had the money for 3960 or even 3930 I would definitely go for 2011.
    After checking I have found that the 3820 isnīt lucrative enough for me in order to go 2011. Especially the onboard graphics factor of 1155 is too enticing, and would not be worth sacraficing for this chip, since its performance is similar or sometimes even inferior to the 26K.

    Ivybridge is supposedly rated at the same price point as the 26K, so I think I will go for it, despite my prior disaproval of it.
    Also by that I will have the option to upgrade to Kepler, should I not be satisfied with my 580 Lightning anymore and a second one would cost too much.

    Some z77 manufacturers (Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte) claimed that overclocking Ivy was a very intense experience with very good performance.

    When did you guys choose for the 2011 chips?
    Did you do so intentionally, because Ivy is not relevant to you?
    Pow, here you go again. Iit is a 4 core it has more L3 Cache plus it is quad channel. It is not superior because it still has hyperthreading and there is not too many apps that will take advantage of the 2 extra cores. The 2Mb of extra L3 cache makes the 3820 a better CPU.

    Actually, here you go again not reading what I am saying.
    I was strictly talking from a performance point of view, based on countless reviews and user experiences.
    Diverse segments of customers with individual chips, made reviews about their experience with both 26K and 3820.
    And the majority came to the result of the 26K outperforming the 3820 by only small amount, of course taking into consideration that both chips were overclocked.

    Letīs talk about the techincal circumstances.

    The 3820 is not unlocked, which does not necessarily mean worse overclockability, but it influences the spectrum of overclocking conveniance and ability in the higher realms.

    The 3820 is rated for 130W TDP, which is why it requires more cooling effort to be kept stable.
    Ít also has a lower safety rated Vcore.

    So considering these factors, I can understand why the majority of users have found, that the 26K outperforms the 3820 with an applied overclock in higher ranges, due to the fact, that the 26K is basically or rather supposedly a better a overclocker.

    didn't I say "case closed"?

    Pow;

    X79 is aiming for enthusiasts and Z68/Z77 is for performance users. Extreme performance chips need high TDP and if this your main concern then don't go with SB-e.
    And if you really want 2x 16x pci-e then 2600K is not a right chip you want, you have to go with SB-E or up coming Ivy.

    What I'm seeing here is you are on a budget which you can't afford the X79 platform so stick with Z68 or Z77 and call it a day. And if you really want the extreme, it's seem like you always want the extreme then start stop eating and shut up and start saving the money to go with 2011.

    Why you guys keep Pickering back and forth when he's already make up his mind. He has ordered the 2600K and will go with Extreme 7, he just want you guys to assure him that his choice was the best.

    The thread title says "Best mainboard for 2600K OC", we did help him to pick out the best board for his ordered 2600K.

    Once again....CASE CLOSED so as this thread!
