I thought this was 500? Now it 750
You're thinking of the 3900x that has 12 cores and 24 threads. This is the 3950x that has 16 cores and 32 threads.

3900 is 500 not 3950.

Anybody think that i can get by with only 3 vrms on a $50 b350 board, using a high cf/m fan of course, and perhaps some spare tiny heatsinks on on them as well?
Or would that suck up all the power that an overclocked 1080ti would need? (I've heard that gpus need some power from the motherboard)

what motherboard do you have? what power supply? and also that last statement isn't entirely relevant, so don't worry about that. this cpu draws less than an overclocked 9900k so you should be fine in regards to power delivery, it pulls less than 200w if i remember correctly

I'm baffled why one would buy a $750 cpu and try to pair it to a $50 mobo.

Well, i already did this with my 3700x, and msi gaming pro b350 board. It already had some heatinks on it, but I added a case fan to drop the vrm temps, though it wasn't really needed. Not like I am benchmarking 24/7.
So I theorize that I should be one of the first to try it, and make a video or something. ... Sell the 3950x afterwards, as I would never have any need for that kind of power.

Thanks, was wondering if motherboard power draw for a gpu would be an issue or not.

Because it would be fun to try before upgrading to something that has more than two memory slots, and little expansion.

GPU will take up to 75W from the PCI-E socket, and the remaining directly from the PSU. ASAIK CPU VRMs are not related to that 75W (GPU has its own VRMs), so it won't "suck up" the GPU power.
But seriously, why would you pair a $750 CPU with a $50 board?
