Intel i7-3930K six core socket 2011 unlocked processor - originally purchased as retail box, latest revision
6 cores 12 threads, in serious loads easily beats quad core i7 processors such as i7-4790K i7-6700K etc.
Also unlike 1150/1151 processors which only have 16 pci-e lanes this supports 40 pci-e lanes (great for multi video card setups and other expansion controllers - nvm.e, raid, etc.). Great for any type of media processing (like video editing), photoshop, modeling, virtual machines. Tested to work great at 4.6GHz (all cores at 100% processor load). Supports vt-x and vt-d.
Sandy-E processors are known to overclock better than Ivy-E and Haswell-E such as i7-4930K or i7-5930K if you provide sufficient cooling.
If you want to build a Hakintosh this processor and socket 2011 are similar to (the same platform as) the most recent generation of Mac Pro 6,1 so you should find it easy to use it with OSX.
$200 firm for the processor (motherboard not included), will be shown working
