    You really cannot argue that if you're going to drop the coin for this, it's going to be worth every dollar you spend on it. I think I still could've accomplished the same overclocks and system setup with a 5930k at the end of the day. But yolo. It's been a dream overclocking this to a very conservative 4.2Ghz stable with no hassle at all. Even with an AIO watercooling solution the processor barely hovers at 40c under load and rarely even gets close to 70c being stressed. This thing is a tank!

    As fast and powerful as you could imagine. I have not gone overboard yet with since photo and video editing does not need all that. But if anything changes, I will update my review.
