Yeah the 3960X is pointless.Same results at nearly half the price.

3960x to me is just for bragging rights, "oooooo looook, i've got the best 2011 processor in my rig hehe"

The 3960x is not worth it, 3930k is just perfect

Very nice review.

Very little difference between the two processors it was rather predictable. I am impressed by the huge difference between the WHQL 285 drivers and 295 Beta drivers.

difference seems rather clear to me....i bet you'd be hard pressed to find an "X" chip that cant hit 2400MHz on the Ram!!!

Great review as ever. Mirrors my own findings on the 3930k, faster than almost anything else (take note, faster than a lot of dual CPU configurations according to AIDA), overclockable to 4.6GHz without much effort, and pretty expensive compared to sandy bridge. Still worth it IMO.
