Microcenter: Intel Core i7-5820k 3.3 GHz LGA 2011 V3 Tray Processor $299.
For people that want to buy the new 6-core CPU:
But with DDR4 and X99 mobo . . . Its not such a good deal for the time being.
With an other $450 you can get a CPU cooler, an X99 mobo and 4x4GB DDR4...
In reality the whole system is around $100 more than a Z97 with 16GB. But with this cpu price cut it actually comes close to a 4790K/Cooler/Z97/16GB system...
@Coseniath: Not sure if the prices are different for the UK
but a X99 mobo is at best £160
the ddr4 is barely available but its cas 16 or 15 and takes up 4 modules for 16gb
May not be much more, but its a significant price to pay for an upgrade
lol, since you live at UK, why bothering with a microcenter in store pick up deal? :P
Y u do this? I'm broke as modapuck. 2500k and still happy.
Well if you want my opinion, I would wait for Broadwell-E and probably a cheaper 8-core CPU ($500 range) in order to upgrade from a 2500K.
Use your keyboard!
