There ridiculously priced. I ended up getting one new for $1450 off a guy who won one. What do you need the extra cores for. I run 2 4 core gaming VMs and have the other 2 cores for KVM and plex. To add they pump out a lot of heat when overclocked. If you only need 8 cores i would go back to haswell. They seem to clock better. Or wait for skylake.
