Intel i7-4930K LGA 2011 64 Technology Extended Memory CPU Processors BX80633I74930K
While Intel processors are known for terrific performance, they are also typically more expensive than AMD CPUs. With that in mind, this is a great choice that comes in quite a bit cheaper than the pricier Intel options on the market, though it’s still more than double the price of the AMD FX9590. You get a six-core processor with this model, with hyperthreading that lets it run like a 12-core CPU. It runs at 3.4GHz right out of the box which is good, plus it has an unlocked multiplier, making it so you can easily and efficiently overclock this CPU to get even better performance. The 22nm Ivy Bridge-E architecture lets this model run with pretty low power requirements, though you need to provide your own CPU cooling to work with it.
