    What's interesting is that I'm so used to the Status Window that I automatically click "Continue" on screen grabs of same.

    I beg to differ, I feel the 4930 is a very good combination of speed and value.

    If you think it's silly not to overclock it.. after a couple of bad experiences with OC'ing I'm fine with stock machines.

    I do favor modern Dual Xeons for my kind of work, I know they are expensive but for setting up scenes they are worth it. For modeling, render farming or budget 3d the 4930 is excellent.

    Whatever you can bang out at the for best GHz per dollar or better still the least number of minutes per dollar.

    One may have other requirements like large single renders or baking radiosity or simply don't have enough space, so a dual CPU box is the go.

    1:12:14 is impressive & you probably have a great price performance ratio for the whole box setup!

    Oh nice of you for putting things into perspective.
    Here's my new current rig (I guess this one will have to last another 5 years like the Q9450):

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4GHz 12MB Sk2011
    Mobo: Asus P9X79
    GPU: Asus GTX760 2GB DirectCU II OC
    RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3-1600Mhz 2x8GB
    Power: Corsair Builder CX600W
    SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 240Gb

    Cheers

    Well, after the 'forget about it' attempt on my old Q6660, I decided it was time for a new rig.

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4GHz 12MB (OC - 4.4Ghz)
    Mobo: Asus P9X79
    GPU: Asus GTX580 1.5GB DirectCU II OC
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR3-1600Mhz 4x8GB
    Power: Corsair Builder CX750M
    SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120Gb
    HHD: WD 1TB Green
    Cooling: Corsair H60

    Max temp 78C (idle 34C) - may add another fan on the bottom of the case (drawing cold air in) as I have one at the front drawing in, the PSU sits face down and pulls air in from underneath the case (dust cover came with the case) and straight out the back. The H60 draws air in from the top and a large fan exhausts out the back.

    I tried her at 4.5ghz - but she BSOD, as I presume she hit the safety mark of 80C I set in the BIOS, or the RAM didn't like the FSB-DRAM ratio.

    I presume 78C is still safe, as long as it's not over long periods of time?

    I think 78 is ok but it seems a little warm. My 4930k under load never reaches 60C (actually none of the cores usually go over 56C) but my OC isn't as high as yours, I just have mine set to 4.1Ghz. I'm using the Corsair H100i cooler.

    Errrm... wonder if the double fan on the H100i is giving you that extra kick back down in temp over the H60, or I need that extra fan to bring in more cold air. I will go and do a test at 4.1GHz and see what the load temp is.

    @hrgiger: Steve, I dropped the CPU down to 4.162 and rendered the marble scene for 5 mins. Highest temp was 64C. So I'm wondering if your H100i does give a slightly cooler temps, or if I need to bring in the other fan for additional air intake.

    @Erikals: Are you kidding me? I buy a new toy and you destroy my hopes and dreams by showing me that vid

    On a serious note, he's a clever cookie that Juan. He's getting some amazing results in Octane. I like the Automatic Surface Node Editor Update and the speed of the multipass motion blur.

    Time to save up for Octane and a couple of gtx 690 next then.

    I bought the H100i as it seemed to have the most positive cooling performance. Also, what thermal paste did you use and how did you apply it? By the way, probably not scientific but I covered one of the fans on the intake on top and it seemed to have little to no effect on temperatures.
