So I have a rather old main computer (I'm rocking a 2006 MBP), and have finally saved up enough to build a rather powerful gaming machine!

About a week ago I ordered everything and just today I received my first piece, my CPU!
I decided on the new Intel Core i7-3960X (for some enthusiast fun) and to my surprise Intel threw in a single core desktop processor (the Celeron G440) to the package! Looks like I may have to build a little NAS box for my house in a couple months...

This is the front of the two cases...I'm so pumped!
And here's a picture of the actual processors (in the box still).

I am really hoping these meet my expectations. I plan on getting a Corsair H100 coller for the CPU and will expand the loop at a later date.

So what are some of your own experiences with Intel processors? Are you an Intel or AMD person? Leave your answer in the comments!

And have a great day!


  1. Definitely a fan of Intel. Got a laptop for school with the i5 (wanted the i7 but didn't wanna spend the money). It works hella well. And that is a hell of a deal you got there.
