So you can get a 4820k for less than £100 on ebay ;-; only problem is that the motherboards are expensive

The X79 socket would be the best budget socket for people looking into E and EP processors, if the motherboards didn't cost more then an i7-5820k...

It is clocked low, but if you can either set the clock speed to its maximum Turbo boost clock of 3.3GHz all the time, or just use it, and when you put a load on it, it will Turbo to 3.3GHz automatically.
