from completed build Nevermore--Watercooled and Modified Enthoo Pro M
This CPU has been amazing. It has laughed at everything I have thrown at it so far. While it is not overclocked yet, I do plan on doing so in the near future. Originally, was going to go with the 5820k, but at the price I got this for, I just could not pass it up.

For me personally, this CPU is sweet spot for high end performance :) Was certainly tempted to grab the 5960X though and I can't wait to try the new 6950X!

from completed build Shadow of Colossus (Colossus Mark II)
Great CPU so far! I find that if you can afford it, this is a better choice over the 5820k. Especially if you won't be overclocking much.

from completed build Dual 980 Ti Hybrid Extravagance
For me, the i7-5930k sits right at the sweet spot of Haswell-E processors - it's got the 40 PCI-E lanes for the SLI plus the higher base clock speed, with only the loss of the 2 cores from the much pricier 5960k. A great processor all around.

from completed build Color Cat (First Time Build) (UPDATED)
After ruling out AMD it was between this and the 5920k; I wanted the extra lanes even though I will probably never use them. Also I'm not very familiar with OC so the clock was nice. Currently running at 3.75

from completed build Athena
This CPU is a monster. It's handled everything I've thrown at it incredibly well. Photography, gaming and rendering all have been very smooth. It overclocked without too much voltage and it runs fairly cool.

from completed build Errol's Temper - Photo Editing and Gaming Build
This has been a great CPU. Keep mine OCd at 4.6GHz with 1.275v for 24/7 use. It games great and photo edits great. Will probably upgrade to 5960X, 6900K, or 6950X once I feel I could utilize the extra cores.
