Chi11ed Posted November 18, 2011 Share Posted November 18, 2011 Ok, my wondering, for us OCers who do not have extremely deep pockets, and have to spend our money wisely to get the best bang for buck, is a 3960X that much better than a 2600K? I currently have a 2600K (5.63Ghz), on a Maximus IV Gene-Z and am wondering, should i be saving and scraping my cents together to get a 3960X??? Other than wPrime, vantage and AM3, Will it have that much of an advantage over a 2600K at the same clock? Should i rather spend some cash binning 2600K's for a 5.8+? Or how does the 3930K compare(at half the price of the 3960X)? Im also seeing the 3960X's are not Ocing as high as 2600K's, looking like 5.4 - 5.5Ghz is a good chip, whereas in 2600K's, your aiming for 5.7 - 5.8Ghz. Maybe the 3960X just need to clear a few batches and they will go higher??? What are your guys thoughs and opinions here?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
