Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W BX80619i73820 Desktop Processor

Pros: This thing is absolutely amazing. It runs any game at max settings, and does very well on benchies. I was running AMD builds for a while, but I didn't like FX and decided to run back to Intel. Glad I did.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Well, it doesn't come with a heatsink. Just remember that.
My rig:
Intel i7 3820
Intel DX79TO
EVGA GTX 670 FTW Edition
Antec P280 case

Pros: This thing worked with the i7 3820 immediately. I didn't need to flash the BIOS, or anything. I just popped the CPU in and it worked.

Cons: Meh, little things.
IO shield needed some violent encouragement to fit into my Antec P280
Fan headers are spread about, and there could be more of them.

Other Thoughts: This was my first time with a 2011 CPU, and I was concerned at the amount of force needed so secure the load plate. Seems to work fine, though.
