    For my 24/7 gaming rig 4930k for sure, but for benchmarking i think sbe...

    Just dont stick Hynix in there...

    Get fast stable ram, thats also one of the keys..

    It depends. Is frequency the only thing that matters? Meaning if you're trying to reach high freqs go for SB-E. But thing is that clock for clock the IB-E is faster. So if you score a 5Ghz IB-E it's faster for everything than a 5.2 SB-E (arbitrary numbers) plus it gets the better RAM performance at that.
    So question is, do you only care about the max attainable value of the clock or how that translates in performance? As that is the only difference. Scoring exceptionally good clocking chips will take luck or binning anyhow.
    Personally I only care for performance. If you give me a chip that runs at 3Ghz and it's faster than a 5Ghz IB-E, I'll gladly take it. I don't care about the actual number. But if you're trying to break a freq record or something then you probably don't care about the actual performance. Comparing max attainable frequency is wrong. Comparing performance at the max attainable frequency is the right way to go.

    The CPU is never the only component in play. First data is transferred from your SSD/HDD to the RAM. Your RAM delivers it and the higher the clock and lower the latency the faster that happens. Then that information gets put through the computer chipset, which is able to commune directly with the CPU. Thus, the chipset you use does actually make a difference, as Z87 is better than H87. The CPU processes and either continues to do so with the received information, or it does something with it like display a visual or execute an internal command. (This is very simplified) The clock of something is how often the clock cycles. A clock of 1600MHz means that there are 1,600,000,000 clock cycles in one second. And latency in your RAM is how many clock cycles the RAM will delay before it sends the recieved data. DDR stands for "Dual Data Rate", which means that your RAM (or cache) sends out two data chunks instead of 1 per cycle. CPUs go considerably slower when they have to get data from outside the CPU. There is something called a cache controller in your CPU. It loads the data into your CPU cache. The larger the cache, the greater the chance that the data which the CPU would need to fetch, is already in the cache and the CPU can process the data much faster.

    However, both the 4930k and 3930k have the exact same cache size, same chipset, and are both QDR, and have the same amount of cores. Thus, it is solely the CPU microarchitecture that has an impact. Which means IB-E is the better architecture as benchmarks from IB-E are better than from SB-E. So an IB-E CPU will always do better than an SB-E.

    IB-E has more SATA III (6G) & USB 3.0 ports; only ~5% more expensive plus what others have said
    so go with that
    However, RE: 4930K vs. other IB-E:
    4930K is 6 core, 4820 is only 4. You want 6.
    The X ver will not gain much - if anything - over K when OCing. Not worth half that price premium. FYI.
    i7-3930K; Asus RIVE; G.SKILL Ripjaws Z 4x4GB DDR3 1866; MSI 7870 2GD5/OC; Crucial M4 SSD 256GB;
    Corsair 1000HX; Corsair H100, 4x Excalibur 120mm PWM CPU Fan p-p, AS5; SB X-Fi Titanium Fata1ity Pro;
    Dell U2412m IPS 1920x1200; Cooler Master HAF 932 case; Tripp-Lite OMNIVS1500 UPS fully Line-interactive.
    (EVGA site: ) And I have a second (wife's) computer, Eve.

    Overclocking is useless to me if it is not rock stable.
