Oh boy

I had originally AMD 8350 @4.6Ghz and i thought that was fast, could handle anything from gaming to desktop applications and processing.

So i thought lets go to the other side as it will be my first time with intel, bit the bullet and brought a brand new x99 setup, along with 5960x...

So i thinkered with it and got my 5960x @4.6Ghz and even though its fast at stock, it could handle anything like the AMD chip but when overclocked to these speeds then this chip is insane...

Skylake was a let down, i have the performance of Skylake in gaming but in heavy workloads, this 5960x is a beast...

Well worth it...
