Will a i7-3930K be the bottle neck in my system

I just got done watching a video where the guy had two of the new Asus ROG Ares II cards and when he over clocked them he lost points in his benchmarks I am planing on dal 7970's with a i7-3930K be a bottle neck in my new system? I wouldn't think so but after watching that review I wanted to be sure.

There's no bottleneck with the i7-3930k or the other i7, or even with the i5-3570k.

Thank you I figured as much but wanted to be sure.

Somethings going to be a bottleneck in every system, so don't worry too much.

Bottlenecks don't work that way. It was either faked, or there was something else going on. If it were a bottleneck, the benchmark would have stayed the same. (And, just so you know, an i5-3570k won't bottleneck a pair of 7970s.)

It should not bottleneck a I7 3930k two hd7970 as long as you have 16gb of ram & a ssd for main os an will all mach up to 7.9 Rating it should work fine

Dude I run a 7970 with a 3470, NO BOTTLE NECKING whatsoever.

Considering most people here are gamers you're not going to get an absolute answer.

Yes an i5 will bottleneck 2 high end cards, no program that fully uses 2x high end cards 100% all of the time can run on an i5, for instance, Editing/rendering that uses 2-4 Cards can't use a single i5 or even i7 sometimes.

The only reason gamers can't see bottlenecks is because their cards are never used to a high enough level for the bottlenecks to show, hence people running i5 with 2-4 cards.

If you could state your purpose it would help.

Thanks
