It has been two years since I built the I7-930 system I use for my main computer.
In anticipation of my income tax refund and thinking about upgrading.....
An I7 3930X looks like a decent performer. However I gather they put out a lot of heat and was wondering if anybody on here had built and used one yet? This would be for my video hobby where the faster the CPU the better.
No gaming but a decent NVidia card to use CUDA assist.
I would probably go with ASUS or Intel motherboard and the Intel Cooling solution or maybe water. Whatever would be quieter.
Still toying with the idea since that CPU seems to be in short supply.
