5 out of 5 eggsMONSTER

Pros: Seems i am the only one running it on the ASUS Rampage IV Gene LGA 2011, i want to game but i do video editing and wanted something future proof and smaller then a monster Eatx, way to big for me... I am easily getting 4.8GHZ with 1.38v on a H100i and Corsair just came out with a new case, the Corsair CC-9011070-WW MicroATX Mid Tower Air 240, What a sweet case! So i got the BOMB of chips, Nice small size and NOTHING comes close to it in power.... I just can't wait to put some GTx 880 in SLI with it..... Wahoooooooom talk about future proof... This one gonna run like my i7 920 did 6 years ago and still rocking out!

Cons: won't give me a foot rub

Other Thoughts: as stated above, nuff said

5 out of 5 eggsHell to the Yes

Pros: 1. It is blazing fast.
2. It doesn't run nearly as hot as I thought it would. Infact, my HUGE Noctua heatsink and fans are probably overkill for cooling this cpu.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I was having some POST issues and my computer wouldnt boot. It was either my mobo, processor or graphics card. I didn't have beeps/leds to tell me which. SO I RMAed all of them.

Between Intel, Gygabyte and MSI. Intel was head and shoulders above the rest in customer service and warranty support.

The techs were knowledgeable, courteous and more than willing to skip all the time consuming level 1-2 diagnostic steps realizing I had already done all of that.

I opted to use their advance warranty service where I pay the price of a second processor, they ship it to me overnight (I seriously got it the next day) and then I mail them back the allegedly defective processor. I was apprehensive about this at first...what if they refund the wrong amount? what if they take so long to process the refund that i'm charged an interest rate? (I used a credit card). But! None of that happened. Everything went flawless.

I have always been open minded about what processors I use. I'm all too happy to use AMD over Intel if the price (if performance is equal) suits me.

But with service like this. I'll never go back to AMD. Intel all the way.

5 out of 5 eggsFEED ME SEYMOUR

Pros: "Nom nom nom nom nom" - The sound this thing makes as it devours any desktop application you throw at it.

Cons: Price - but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Probably one of the best processors I've ever owned. In the 3D Mark test paired with an ATI HD 7990 on stock settings it scored better than 93% of CPUs tested. This is one of the best gaming CPUs on the market currently.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat cpu

Pros: quad channel 2133 4x8gb running flawlessly
only 72c full 12 thread load while vid encoding home vids
clock to 4.2ghz stable
1/2 price of 4960k with same OC clock speeds

Cons: only clocks to 4.2g :(
only gets 7.8/7.9 WEI (noone really cares but its really silly since 3770k @4g gets 7.9)

Other Thoughts: get intels insurance if you OC even if you dont my 4960k was only 35USD and intel replaced it w/o issue after lightning killed it (yes i had a surge protector and the insurance from that covered the other parts)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Guys looking at this and the 4960k know whats up already and are just deciding if they want the spend almost double for the 4960.. Well I decided not too and I have no regrets, this has plenty of power and overclocks very well.. Save the money and grab this processor now.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Overclocker and Single-thread performer

Pros: I have this chip overclocked to a stable 4.9 Ghz. People that say you don;t have any OC headroom probaly dont have a good board or unluckily ended up with a poor quality chip. It is a great multi-tasker. With normal use I only see 3-4% with 30 tabs open in Chrome(some playing videos).

Cons: High Price

3 out of 5 eggsOverrated

Pros: *4* Channel Ram controller. Top end processor.

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: I usually by Amd chips, but I wanted to see if intel was worth a chance. I must say I am disappointed by this cpu. I saw no improvement over my fx 8150, at least not other than benchmarks. Truthfully I feel dumb for wasting the money. In this chips defense the lack of noticeable improvement might be due more to software limitations than this chip's tech, at least that is what I tell myself to sleep at night.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Stupid Fast

Cons: High end motherboards for it can be spendy, not really a direct con though

Other Thoughts: When I got the Canon 5D Mark II over 5 years ago and started immersing in video, I actually had the nerve to try and render my first HD vid on a Dell E1705 laptop. I had a gadget showing CPU temp, and when it hit 85C I knew I had to shut it down or I'd fry the laptop. Short n Sweet, I built my first pro rig in 2009 with an i7-920, then later upgraded to 950 and then 6-core 980. The 980 was pretty good, then my aging X58 motherboard gave up the ghost right around Christmas 2013. Time to rebuild.

Enter the 4930K. I thought it'd be a bit better/faster than the 980... I was wrong. This thing is a tremendous improvement and along with the components we have in 2014 vs 2009, the speed is stupid fast. If you're going to invest 500+ in a proc, don't skimp. Get this CPU and pair it with a decent motherboard and you will never regret it. I actually render out HD vid faster than real time now, still can't believe it. Given the odd complex H.264 file format used by Canon that's quite a feat. Note also that I don't overclock and don't need to. Video editing is all about stability, not eeking out extra speed. And because the CPU runs cooler and I have that massive Noctua cooler on it, I'll render video which hammers all 12 threads at 100% for more than an hour sometimes, and the CPU temp never gets out of the 50s. I think the huge fans in my case help there also.

Here's my rig, which I'm listing simply because of how helpful it was 5 years ago when I was about to build my first PC, and people listed their components in reviews. I had to learn the quirks the hard way (such as Premiere Pro not leveraging SLI so buying two video cards at the time was a waste of money), and seeing what people were using was a great help:

* i7-4930K
* Asus DELUXE 79 Motherboard
* Mushkin 32GB DDR-1600 RAM
* Noctua NH-D14 2011 Cooler (Air, not water)
* EVGA GTX 770 Graphics Card
* LSI 3Ware RAID card with two WD 2TB Reds in RAID0 for all assets, video and audio.
* SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD for C: drive (All Adobe apps and Win 8.1, no personal files)
* SanDisk 256GB Ultra II SSD for Adobe cache files and video project files
* Also have a couple more 2TB-3TB WD Black drives for photos and all my files
* EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 Power Supply
* Pioneer Blu-Ray/DVD burner
* Antec 1200 v3 case
* Dell U3011 monitor
* Dedicated external backup drives for all internals.

Hope all this is helpful!
