My god man! Why would you go from a 5960X to a 6950X? rolleyes.gif

That's what I did. I'll probably be getting whatever the next HEDT chip is released next as well.

For MSI users: apparently you can't overclock a broadwell e processor on an msi board yet. My bios OC settings just won't show on Windows, cpuz, coretemp, command center or anything else. And I have the latest bios that I tried to reflash but that didn't do anything. Quite a waste of 550 for a stock processor running, gimped board. Hopefully msi will release bios updates or I'm back to ASUS.

Yeah I mean I think its totally reasonably to get the 5820k. No question you are paying 25% extra for not much, maybe 10% performance. That said, if you have $400 dollars to spend and already have a decent cooling system, I think the 6800k is the best $400 processor. On the other hand the $80 difference might by better spent upgrading the cooling, say going from an H50 to a kraken x61 or similar.

Should be pretty sweet either way.

If you have AIDA, run AIDA FPU test, and post power and voltage screenshot.

I don't have AIDA - but I can run whatever else you need me to -

My cooler is a Corsair H115i - idling at 30 degrees

Screenshots if it helps.

I bumped it up to 4.5 and BSOD almost immediately - I'm fine at 4.4 , I'm going to benchmark and see the gains on this chip from 3.4 to 4.4 - for what I use it for, editing, rendering, etc.
If anyone has questions, fire away.

Newegg does have the 6900K in stock, but they're forcing you to purchase a combo deal to get one. If you live near a microcenter you can call them and ask, the local one here had a couple 6900K yesterday even though it's not listed on the website. SL also has some in stock.

I wish Intel would seed retailers with plenty of stock before launch, even if it causes a week of delay. Scalpers and such are very annoying.

Looks like other people are having a similar debate

I'd like to buy the 6800kforits new features but rationally I can't justify spending more on a chip that in all likelihood will perform worse when overclocked

Why not? An additional 4 threads can come in VERY handy for some people. And by upgrading now, he'll still be able to get a decent price for his i7-5960X...wink.gif
