    The socket used for Naples is similar to LGA3647 (as some heatsinks will be interchangable between Naples socket and Intel's LGA3647). LGA3647 can pull 260W (using current Phi processors), so it's...

    Why do people automatically assume that if I want a chip to be unlocked that my primary purpose is gaming?? I want a chip that runs at it's full potential for all uses, not just gaming.

    Because it's a fully locked down POS, whose top speed is a whopping 2.8GHz (all core turbo). Whoop-de-friggen-do...thanks Intel for screwing us over yet again...:mad:

    I find it hard to get excited about an 8-core chip that we should have had an earlier version of three years ago. Also, waiting 4.5 years to go from the introduction of the 6-core i7-980x to the...

    No, Intel has stopped support for their motherboards, except for bug fixes. They even refused to release a BIOS update to support IVY Bridge-E on their X79 boards last year.

    The 5820K is the same chip as the 5930K, except that it's clocked a bit slower and 16 PCI-E lanes have been snipped, leaving it with only 24 (still better than the mainstream platform though).;)
