Really great processor! I replaced my 3790K with this one, and you can definitely feel/see the difference between them.

The price is quite expensive, though the performance you get is definitely worth it.

nice CPU, the performance is very good, but did not meet my expectations.

HASH(0x9a8e31b0) out of 5 stars Great CPU July 27 2015
By Rigoberto Ruiz - Published on

Great CPU overall. Extremely fast with those 8 cores and 16 threads. I bought this for my new water cooled computer build that I just finished. I wasn't lucky enough like other people who achieved great overclocks on it. But I got enough to be satisfied with it. Here is a pic of my system just during the leak test. Please don't judge me to hard. This is my first build ever.

HASH(0x9a3b20e4) out of 5 stars Baby Xeon! Oct. 1 2014

Another winner i7 top end processor. I have owned a few i7's now and also a couple that were extreme edition before this. Its nice to see that the extreme edition this time around is more than just clock speed and more cache. Those 2 extra processors make a world of difference for those of you that use that processing power for crunching CPU hungry programs. The lower clock speed is a little bit of a draw back but with a good double or triple radiator closed loop water cooler (I'm using the Corsair H105) you can easily overclock this to the mid 4GHz range. I run mine on a daily bases OC to 4.07GHz with DDR4 2800 RAM. I could go up to 4.4 or 4.5 if I wanted but I don't feel the need to run it that hot everyday.

I'm running this on a Asus Rampage V Extreme motherboard with Corsair CMK16GX4M4A2800C16 and an Antec HCP-1000 Platinum power supply to turn it all. Both the RAM and power supply were on the qualified vendor list for the motherboard.

HASH(0x9a8dbc00) out of 5 stars the best processor you can get Jan. 12 2015

Hi everyone . .
I will talking about performance And when you need it and Is it worth the price And what you get
And some comparison with 5820k And some results of BenchMark

First .. I already own 5820k Overclock to 4.3GHz in 1.280v Full stable
Compared with 5960X in Stock Speed 3 GHz to 3.5 GHz Max Turbo
5960X Beats him in CINEBENCH and in video converter for mkv "8G" to mp4
less time for 5960X All that in Stock Speed ..
I did not know the increase 2 Extra Cores and 5m More Cache and 4 More Threads Compared to 5820k
Will do this difference . . With less clock speed .

Second .. I able to Overclock to 4.3GHz in 1.200v Full stable
I can get to 4.5GHz in 1.300v Full stable and 4.6GHz in 1.345v Full stable
But the high temperature is the only issue " I want the heat to be under 70C° Most of the time in load"
It differs from chips to other Some gets golden Chips able to Overclock to 4.7GHz in 1.305v Full stable
and Some gets Bad Chips able to Overclock to 4.3GHz in 1.400v in Order to get Full stable
The same thing in Processor Cache Ratio Useful to raise memory performance
Some can reach 4.0 or 4.3 Close to cpu Ratio With Full stable
and Some can not be able do More than 3.5 . .

Third .. I use win7 and in 5820k I Can not reach 7.9 CPU IN Windows Experience
But after use 5960X I Can reach 7.9 CPU . . But you need to Hotfix
Because computer has a processor that has more than 16 megabytes (MB) of L3 cache
And Windows does not recognize it..

These are some of the BenchMark results Overclock to 4.3GHz in 1.200v Full stable

Fourth . . In Games There is no difference Between him and 5820k
if you Want to be using 3-way or 4-way SLI Will be 40 Lanes in 5960X + 5930k Useful
But in one gpu card or 2-way SLI the 5820k Will be first choice . .
If you are using heavy render , Video Converter heavy video editing..Etc.
You should consider 5960X .. Yes, the price is high But it will save you time
5820k Does a wonderful job But 5960X much better If you can afford it . .

Sorry for my English is not good
I hope my review will be useful .

HASH(0x9a91c348) out of 5 stars Will Mature with Time. Oct. 27 2014

I have waited 2 months to be able to test this CPU, and I was finally able to procure a motherboard to be able to test everything out. I spent all weekend testing everything and will update this review as the items are tested along the way.

Temperature: It gets hot incredibly fast. If I run a stress test, the moment I engage the test, it jumps to 55 at stock speeds with no boost. If I overclock, the jump becomes greater as expected. I have been able to run 4.5ghz, at 1.375v with heat being the only issue. The watercooling look consists of a 360mm radiator and a 240mm radiator dedicated to the CPU, with an EK Supremacy EVO waterblock. Liquid Temperatures are at 25c maximum. The waterblock makes great contact in the direct center of the IHS, but only in a small area about the size of pencil eraser. Outside of that area the thermal material seems to thicken very fast making me wonder if the block of the IHS is slightly concave/convex. I will get a piece of glass and test this asap.

Overclock: Very very easy to overclock. the motherboard of choice was able to use auto voltage to maintain a 4.5ghz clock speed with 1.4v. This was too high, so setting the voltage as low as 1.375 had a perfectly stable 4.5ghz overclock. 1.34v maintains a 4.4ghz OC no issue at all. *addition* made it to

Ring Overcock: Seems to not like being overclocked so far. Definitely a downside, as this is the part that will help boost physics scores while benchmarking and testing. *addition* overclocked to 4.1 ghz with the new motherboard. Very easy to do, helps all around. The old motherboard was the issue.

Speed: 8 cores accomplishes a lot of work, and does so with NO lag at all. While stress testing the CPU, dragging windows and continuing to surf the web as well as opening other programs, lag is nowhere to be found.

4 Stars. I am currently holding it at 4 stars, because I want to verify if the water block or the IHS is flat. If it is the IHS, then I will send the CPU back and get a new one sent out. IF it is the water block, I will get the manufacturer to replace it and I will correct my review with an update as to the outcome of the test.

---------------------------------------------------------Jan 1 2015------------------------------------------------------------

*EDIT/Addition* I am bumping the review to 5 Stars. The IHS is flat. I have been using this CPU for almost 3 full months on a daily basis and it is quite impressive. Everything is stable overclocked, although I did not get a "Golden" chip that would run 4.5ghz on low 1.3v or anything like that. I have used it for some mild rendering, bench marking and editing and it is insanely fast with the core count and ability to overclock so well. The CPU can Benchmarks at 4.65ghz at 1.4v and run fully stable, but it isn't able to be fully stable for normal operations, rendering and things like. it is at a daily 4.4ghz at 1.37v staying under 60c with a custom water loop and a 480mm radiator with the fans set at low. I have switched from the original configuration above(if you couldn't tell). During heavy loads, the fans only need to go up for approximately 50% to keep everything cool.

Beware, with 8 core and insufficient cooling, this CPU will get to critical temperatures in a matter of seconds. The IHS is soldered to the CPU, so delidding is not a viable option (although some have tried). Using an Air Cooler is not recommended. Using a small AIO cooler like an H55 will allow you to run at stock or very mild overclocks. Running with an AIO 220/240mm radiator will allow more headroom, but this CPU will shine under custom water cooling or better (phase change and higher priced items). If you spend $1000 on a CPU and try to use a HyperEvo 212, you are asking to waste every single penny you spent. If you are spending this much, spend the extra for appropriate cooling measure at a minimum. An AIO will do just fine, as long as you aren't trying to get to the moon on your first overclocking adventure.

HASH(0x9a367444) out of 5 stars although it allows me to overclock very easily. The CPU requires adequate cooling Nov. 4 2014

The 5960X octocore is extremely fast. I had to order a new motherboard to support 2011-v3, although it allows me to overclock very easily.

The CPU requires adequate cooling; I used the H100i water cooling kit and a dab of thermal paste. Note that I run it at 3.8GHz rather than 4.0+ that I have seen others. With this setup the CPU core temp stays below 50C
