This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So I won a 3970x at PAX

Welcome to the club!

I won one back in January and decided to keep mine since the second hand price for PC parts is crap here.

Sell it, if you don't get at least $600 or more, keep it and save for a x79 board

I'd personally sell it, but if you have the cash to upgrade your motherboard and what not, might as well use it.

I hate you, man... Just for being at PAX, even. =)

I'd sell it if I could get a good return on it. If not, put it to some good use.

That's a crap CPU, TC. You should send it to me and I will... um.. dispose of it. I just don't want you to go through the humiliation of explaining to people why you own it, so I am willing to take that burden off of your hands.

totally jealous

Benchmarking? Just sell it and buy some scooters or carpet.

Sell it now, get a 4930k or a 3930k and a good board and pocket the rest of the money.

I'd sell it and use the money for the IB-E or whatever.

It's too much for gaming and by the time it's a viable solution ,a $300 processor will out perform it.

Also grats on the win..
