Intel Core i7 980X Review preview results
Thanks to Intel, the Core i7 980X review will be the first review scheduled for the new i4memory.com version 3.0 design.
Lot of delays have occurred due to family health issues, work and midway test failure of my Corsair Dominator GT 2000C7 kit, so still writing the full review, but thought I'd post up a preview of some of the results only so far. The rest of the review will be posted up on i4memory.com front page.
The Corsair Dominator GT 2000C7 kit which was 13+ months old from original Corsair TR3X6G2000C7GTF sku was used for ~75% of the review. But due to one module failing at short notice, for the rest of the review I used my recently rma replacement #2 kit of Kingston 2000C8 with the newly revised KHX2000C8D3TK3/6GX sku - the only other Elpida Hyper memory kit I had on hand to fill in Corsair Dominator GT's shoes. The Kingston kit is rated for 2000Mhz 8-8-8-24 2T 1.65v and is brand new and this is the first time I've used this kit, so had to test it thoroughly at 2000Mhz 7-8-7-20 1T timings to complete the tests for this review.
For this review, I'll be using custom water cooling with EK Supreme LT, Feser 480 radiator and Swiftch MCP655 pump. I'll save the stock Core i7 980X heatsink tests for a different review planned later.
Not having luxury of time to retest all my Core i7 cpus for comparisons to Core i7 980X, I decided to do the Core i7 980X review comparing results in terms of cpu scaling with four configurations:

Break down of subtest suite component scores along with the percentage weighting for each subtest for cpu, memory, graphics card and hard drive as per Futuremark PCMark Vantage white paper specifications. For instance, you can see in PCmark TV & Movies 2 - HDD Windows Media Center, the results fluctuate with the four test configurations due to the test being heavily weighted on hard drives - 25% CPU, 25% graphics card and 50% hard drives.
