Intel Core i7 5820K Giveaway

Recommended Posts

If I were to win the giveaway, the processor would be used for my first PC build. I was planning on building one for gaming early next year, but considering this is a 6 core hyperthreaded CPU, I'd make my first build a CAD workstation build.

 

Soon I'll be graduating with my AA in electro-mechanical design which requires the use of CAD software such as SolidWorks. Since SolidWorks is such a resource hog at times and can take advantage of hyperthreading (photo realistic part rendering for example) I'd make an X99 build and take advantage of DDR4 memory, of which SW needs plenty! I also do a fair amount of photo editing but not to the extent where this processor would be necessary.

 

I've been working with SW and AutoCAD for about 5 years now always on sub-par, pre-built machines and would love to change that!

Hi Nick

 

I would buy an X99 board and create my first enthusiast grade platform. There's some relatively inexpensive x99 boards to be had, and winning a 5820k would certainly cut out a significant amount of the cost.

This.

I would love to have this CPU as it can let me try to experience the X99 chipset.

I'd use this cpu for an excuse to go to x99 and ddr4 for a replacement main cpu for my network editing setup for my church production group. I can dream now of editing and gaming simultaneously at blinding speeds. Then I look at my sandy bridge i5 and reality clicks back in:P

Definitely be using one of these as a start to a new multi-purpose rig. A little gaming here... A little Photoshop there... Some game dev and 3D modelling every now and again...

I'm a freelance graphic designer and I want to venture into video editing because several clients have asked if I do that too. They wanted a 'one stop shop' to handle both, and unfortunately my old, trusty 2500k doesn't seem up to the challenge. The i7 5820k and the x99 platform in general would greatly help my business diversify and grow.
