Quickly look at the bench review onto a core i7 5960X, and it blows charts quite well, even if the i7 4960X seems quicker in on some benchmarks.

So looks with 2 more cores and less speed GHz it does the job well.
A nearly 195watt in burn test....

Well as well as it does on benchmarks now, let me remind everyone, this is new technology and all of the BIOS's are basically Betas even if they don't say so. In about 3 or 4 months, there will be more mature BIOS's that will improve performance significantly. Also remember this is the first time DDR4 has been used and they are still learning how it interacts with the board and other hardware. That will get ironed out too, in time. The rig will do nothing but get faster and faster. Overclocking will improve too.

Oh yes Steve you are correct.
Their is still a learning curve on this new stuff.
I remember over clocking my i4820-E. It's a strange over clocker but with time they all get figured out.

It's been a frustrating week, never enough time to complete my new build.

I'm hoping that tonight I can at least get the new mobo and cooler installed in the case, maybe even install Windows.

Kent, if your old computer is still running, use Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer and transfer the whole OS and Programs. It works very well. Be sure to read the whole tut. You will have to reactivate and install the new drivers. I've done it before and it works very well. It basically just strips all drivers out of the installation so when you first boot up on the new machine, it's just like a clean install except everything is already there, including your account. During set up just name the new account test, then log into your old account and delete test account. Install your drivers and any updates and you should be in business. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion Steve, I'm willing to give it a shot.

It's not the installation of Windows that's the giant PITA, it's all the other software. Of course everyone knows that but you just can't relate to it until you're doing it yourself.

I don't think I posted this here, but here's a pic of the X99 during bench testing.

A reminder of the specs:
CPU: i7 5960X
RAM: 4 x 4 GB G.Skill RipJaws 4
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X99-SOC Force

The small CPU cooler was for testing only, it'll be replaced by the H105 in the finished rig.
Likewise, the GTX 560 Ti was for testing, too.

Some people may not be looking at this thread, so I've posted this vid in "Show us your rig" as well.

Anyhow, here's a short video of how things are going with my Monster X99 build.
