I am fairly new to PC building, but why not start out with a bang? I have just purchased the Asus x79 Deluxe motherboard with the LGA2011 socket, and was considering the Intel Core i7-4930k Six-Core processor. But I also heard that the Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge Processor might be better. Im not sure. I also plan to install the G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8x8GB) DDR3 1866Mhz quad channel memory pack one time and done to fill all available memory slots as it can be a hit and a miss with mixing other memory batches later on. I was wondering if I am going in the best direction for the most performance on this motherboard, or is there a better option? I want to get this done before the "wife" sees the grand total,lol :ouch:

Those are the same processor. You do not need that much RAM, get 32gb.

What is your intended use for the computer? And ewok is right, that is the same processor and to be more specific, the 4930K is an Ivy Bridge-E CPU not Ivy Bridge.

I do alot of level editing for multiplayer games and just want to make sure I have enough power for any needed future projects. I am using the CryEngine3 editor, and plan on using it in conjunction with 3D studio Max to create photo-realistic 3-D models. It looked to me as if it was two different processors, thanks for the clarification.

Yes, the 4930K's six cores should be great for you then. Your other two choices with the LGA 2011 socket are the 4820K and the 4960X. Since you're doing this kind of editing you should avoid the 4820K as it has four cores, and this kind of work really takes advantage of multiple cores. The 4960X is only slightly stronger as a CPU, but almost twice the price, so unless you have a really generous budget most people think the 4930K is the sweet spot for the LGA 2011 socket.

I don't know much about 32GB vs 64GB RAM for this kind of work. I have a 4930K system myself and checked out a lot of builds before building my comp and can say 32 GB was something like 80% of people building with this CPU who said they did image/video rendering. A few went with 16 GB, but said they didn't do much of this work. 64 GB was rarer, but some people were doing this build. As you might expect, the 4960X builds tended to have more 64 GB representation then the 4930Kers!

Thankyou! I think the 4930K will do just fine. 32GB is probalby fine for what I need now, but who knows what might come along in a few years. I just want something that I won't have to upgrade for a while.

Hi! I want to build a computer with Intel 4930k and Asus x79 Deluxe and G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) with 1866 and Intel SSD 530 240 GB for a multi-purpose computer. I use Ansys, ANSA, Catia, Inventor and so on, I want to get into video-rendering and mining during the night night. Is this a good configuration ?

Yes it is, but I suggest making a new thread.
