Great review Tom. SB-E is totally awesome. Wish I had the budget to build a SB-E system. One can always dream?

Wow, scoring 10 on Cinebench strait out the box is amazing, a 2500K @ 4.7ghz scores about 7.9 so that goes to show just how powerful this CPU is.

Also, 48,000 PPD at stock .... The only thing I have against SB-E is that it is still 32nm, power hungry and hot. The heat is to be expected but it would have been nice if SB-E was 22nm and a little cooler using less volts.

If I had money to burn i'd buy one but I think i'll hold out to see what IB-E is like.

When do you think IB-E will be launched?

£767.99 on Aria

Quite a bit cheaper than I'd expected.

3930K is £431.99, which is actually a bit more expensive than I expected. Still probably gonna go for it though.
