    Default Upgrade chipset vs upgrade to new build?

    Hi all, been a while since Ive been around here, Ive been on some Australian OC sites and away at work alot so now its time to delve back into the hobby at home!

    Currently still running the setup as in my User CP, but im looking to upgrade.

    What has got me stuck is the money,

    Im not sure whether to just buy a i7 980x chip and an ssd and maybe a new case to spruce the look up a bit. Or to just go all out with a new build and only re-use the VGA cards and CPU cooler? Ill throw a list of the parts im looking at for the new build, see what you guys think.

    AsRock x79 Extrene6 Motherboard
    Corsair Dominator GT CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 16gb (4X4 Kit)
    Corsair HX 1050 80Plus gold PSU
    Intel Core i7 3930k / 3820k ( would i really notice the difference compared to the price?)
    OCZ Agility 3 240gb SSD
    Fractal Design Desire XL Titanium Case

    The above setup ranks in around the 1500 mark but doesnt include many other assets, name a cpu cooler being that my H70 wont mount in the "desired" case, excuse the pun, without drilling out the top, thus removing the sound deadening potential.

    Also, I would like a fan controller, also interrupted by the case, where the front door would hit any knobs, so im left with touch screen LCD or internal controller....

    My other option, to come somewhat close to later day performace is to buy an i7 980/990x and an SSD....

    Basically im searching for approval other than the Mrs to spend more money here guys...Help me out!!!
    Cheers, and Thanks in advance!

    X58 chipset is dead. No Sata III or USB 3.0. Get the X79 with the 3930K. It is a real great performing platform and the 3930K is real good. I have Z77, and X79. The X79 is killer.

    What do you mean no sata3 or usb3??? Im running both of those on my Rampage III Formula. The sataIII controller is probably not as good as what is out today, but still decent speeds none the less...

    @Chris, its ok mate...I still love this thing too..... But its kinda like a child, at some point, you have to kick them out!

    Not all boards have it. I failed to look at your specs... The 3930K is pretty dar stout for $500 and the 980X I think is still $1000. I have the 3930K and would recommend it handly.

    The X58 may be dead but a good 980 will still kick ass and the price is irresistible. A 980 with a good cooler can get you 4.5Ghz easy, if you get a good bin I'd imagine you could even get 5Ghz. The 980x is still 1000 but IMO that is a waste of money, get the regular 980.

    Valid point, the 3930k in Aus is about $600~ AUD. Reasonable considering the $1000 price tag on a new 980x. What has me stumped is the other parts that I will need if I upgrade to a new chip, being MOBO, Mem, a new CPU Cooler and Ill get an SSD just to make it all worth it. I think I might do this new build though.

    Ill just turn this 1366 build into a HTPC/backup machine I think.

    My next question relates to the cooler/case.

    I am really intrigued by the Fractal Design Desire >> Products - Fractal Designroblem stands that my h70 wont fit here.... So, Do i just by a NH-D14 and be done with it or is there another suggestion.

    I dont want to run an adaptor for 120 > 140 mm as this will make it difficult to get the water block off when cleaning or installing...

    What are some recommendations?

    Intel Core i7 980X Extreme 3.33GHz 12MB Cache LGA 1366 Six Core Processor | eBay cant work out why the 980 is still the same price as the 3930k??? I think I might just do the new build unless I see one of these come up dirt cheap somewhere between now and then...

    Whatever you chose will be a great performer but the 3930K has the same 12M L3 cache but performs better with the new architecture plus you will be able to upgrade to Ivy "E".

    If what you do needs more cores then I understand the new build....if not then go with a 77 build, you will enjoy the benefits over x58. Likely to be support for raid with trim on 77 too. not so sure about sandybridge-e

    curiosity; Why the OCZ ssd? Seen a bunch of bad press about that make.

    I like the sound of the upgrade to Ivy, that was something that I had not looked into.

    I recently build a 3770K Unit for a friend, turned out quite good, but for the $1400~ that it cost, after we did tests on it I can justify the upgrade to something so close to what I already have.

    I was only leaning that way due to their price here in AU, What are your recommendations because the comparisons on SSD's seem so close.

    Always open for opinions. Ill post a list of all the items im looking at getting,
