I had a hard time evaluating this processor. It's supposed to be an entry point into HEDT, but the performance lags behind the competition. 5831 points on Cinebench R20, a few hundred above the 9900k, but well below AMD's 3900x. Yet it is much more expensive than the 3900x.
I'd only recommend this processor if you need 256 GB RAM support and the additional PCIe 3.0 lanes. Also, the power draw at 4.7 Ghz all core boost can reach 225W, so good cooling is an absolute must. Given the additional cost of cooling, power draw and lackluster performance, this should have been priced at $100 less.
