Hey guys so I'm fairly new to the enthusiast scene so bare with me. Recently I've been trying to scope out a cheap i7 2600k when recently on ebay I found someone selling skulltrail 2600ks. They claim to perform a lot better, but I don't understand what is it a skulltrail can do that a normal i7-2600k can't? Also are the skulltrails reliable? I haven't even found a skulltrail website. :(

Skull trail was a dual CPU (i.e. two physical chips), system, I don't think it made it to socket 1155, I call b&ll*cks on it.

The Xeons might be able to do dual socket...

2600K's are so like a commidty that there won't be a lot of variation in price, since there's not a lot to replace a 2600K with, anything you find on ebay should be treated with suspicision (sp?).

From an enthusiast point of view, other than to say you have it, there's not much point at the moment.

The Xeon version of the 2600k that can do dual CPUs is not out yet. It will be, but not until next year I believe.

looking at the advert for a 2500K ST (its still bollocks), it looks like a 2500K overclocked to about 5GHz, look up some of the early 2500K/2600K reviews to see how easy it is to overclock, it ain't difficult.

For CFD and Finite Element software. Either (or both together) can eat up quite a bit of ram.
