Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition Processor Unboxing

Recommended Posts

Wait, it's a LGA2011? Damn, no idea for a mobo for it then. Edit: After looking around on PCCaseGear.com for LGA2011 boards, I'd probably go with the ASRock X79 Extreme 9 and get a pair of the G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL10Q-32GBXL 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 kits to max out the board at it's top of 64GB (the X79 Extreme 7 maxes at 48GB in triple-channel with 6-slots).

Yup. 2011. Which means the boards are way expensive... =( sigh.... I'm looking at that Extreme 9 and I don't think it'll be in my budget. Extreme 4, maybe...
