    Right on my friend. People fail to realize that the reason most computer manufacturers use intel core processors is because they're locked in contracts. I don't find the 220 watts to be that bad, as the H100i is not much more expensive than the H80i, and is twice as good. I find that most AMD processors do trumph their intel equivalents. Both in preformance and cost. Too bad they're not mainstream enough for everybody to recognize that.

    I've already seen those. Multiple times. And those costs are lies. The FX - 9370 is but 199.99 on Amazon, and the FX - 8350 169.99

    And once again, I don't overclock so even that small of a percent is enough for me.

    I wasn't pointing at the prices, didn't notice .. but those were projected .. you are correct .. I have even see the 9590 for $350

    OC .. hahhaa .. oboy. You will .. Pump up the Volume .. hahhahhaa .. it's a treat and a Rush !!! .c.

    I find even with an insane custom-built or premade cooling system costing $400USD is not enough to prevent your CPU from degrading noticeably faster than without OCing. And I don't want to spend that much on a liquid nitrogen cooling system.

    Looking forward to the arrival, I estimate I will have the PC built before the 25th... I will make a new thread about the build soon where I will post pics... hopefully I will have some photos within 3 days... most parts have arrived. I must say ASUS, I have never seen any packaging as well done as the Maximus VI formula...I gotta say, well done. I think I may keep the boxes as a souvenir

    Ok, first of all, the H100i is not "twice as good" as the H80i. It has been shown time and again that the H100i outperforms the H80i ONLY in push-pull and then only to the tune of about 2-5 degrees. The H80i radiator is twice as thick and has higher fin density than the H100i, to help make up for the lesser surface area. Granted, all things being equal, the H100i is the better performer *IF* you have room for it in your case and *IF* you buy 2 additional fans for it (which jacks the price up quite a bit as SP120's run around $18 a piece); otherwise, the H80i is very nearly the same thing.

    You're half right. AMD processors do trump their Intel equivalents in cost, but they don't even come close to matching them in performance. At the moment, Intel is so far ahead of AMD in performance it's almost a joke. That said, AMD is able to offer their hardware at much lower price point, which is good enough for 90% of users, so for cost-benefit ratio, AMD probably is the winner. But it's just plain false to assert that AMD trumps Intel in performance. That hasn't been true for years.

    Yeah. At the time of the post, I was only looking at cache size, and clock speed. I checked the benchmarks and for most benchmarks, even an
    i7-4770k hilariously outguns any AMD processor. The only areas in which AMD did better were 3D renders.

    Nice... then I'm glad I picked the right CPU

    As I said and thought time and time again, Intel is having a laugh... AMD is struggling to keep-up with Intel.

    Many YouTube's and famous benchmarkers agree that AMD has failed many times to produce the goods to out-go Intel.
