Yup, the CPU for video editing and audio production. 12 threads wow.

Who has one of these chips like a Sandy Bridge E or top of line Ivy.

What are your thoughts on it, having payed about 600 dollars compared to a 260 dollars 2700k ? Thanks

I have an X6 :D.

I don't do video editing or audio production though. I just run 6 instances of Minesweeper...

I own an i7 970 and a 3930K. Both are awesome chips and do what I want. I mainly use them for Distributed computing.

This isn't anything new. Although his thread about secretly overclocking his dad's PC was hilarious.

I don't understand what you're asking. If an Intel hex-core is worth the price? If your time or computational demands are valuable and your software supports the threading then the answer is obvious.

Right click on his name, then go down to view other posts (or something like that).
It's really more sad than funny though, so you've been warned.

It was, for the most part, a waste of money. But then I was too lazy to swap it back out for my 2600K so I kept the 3930k. I'll probably end up ditching it for a quad Haswell anyway.

Why is that pancake using a bunny as an undergarmet?

Fur is murder, people, even if it is worn in the name of keeping your pancakes warm.

Personally I feel that cinebench is a great indicator of how well video/audio editing software answers in real time editing scenarios in stuff like reaper or vegas.

Althought I can almost only try lower end cpus :'(
