  1. Yes.

    Though I don't know why you would spend the extra $400 for 200mhz over the 3930K.
  2. Yep. Believe it or not the Ivy and Sandy bridge processors don't run too aweful hot compared to the earlier generations from before. Take a look at a stock cooler for that processor and it should answer your question.
  3. corsair h100 cools my 3930 pretty insanely completely stable 4991mhz
