    Hi there!

    Today i've discovered several result on geekbench site, where guys posts result iMac with 3930K CPU.

    I know, that it's possible to install 2700 CPU, but how about 3930 - is it possible(if yes - how), or that guys posts hackintosh results?

    Thanks.

    Those are Hackintoshes. i7-3930K and i7-3960X use different sockets (LGA 2011 vs LGA 1155) so it's impossible to install one in an iMac.
