@accalia Could use more overkill. Why not an i7-6950X? It's two more cores for about $1300 more! Also, it would open up for more expensive motherboards too! And more RAM. Needs to max that motherboard! Stuff it full with all the hardware possible!
if we're moving into socket 2011-v2 why not go xeon? some of thise fuckers are truly astronomcially expensive and you can have up to like four of them on a single motherboard.
