Thought I'd post this for anyone interested, replaced my 6 core 5930k with an eight core xeon 1660v3. Processor is unlocked and overclocks well, can do 4.6ghz @ 1.36v & 4.5ghz @ 1.28v. 32gb @ 3200mhz case 14. Basically a 5960x, these xeons are coming down to the $150 range on eBay. 1650v3(6 core), 1660v3, & 1680v3 are all unlocked and make great upgrades on the x99 platform. Hopefully this will allow me to stay on x99 for a few more years!
