post #1 of 17

Ok for games it doesn't make much difference if you have a 2500k or a 2600k but what one has a higher max OC?

2600K HT
2600K NO HT

I have not seen anyone get the 2600K a whole lot higher than the 2500K clock wise. You usually see people running them at 4.5-4.8 on air and 4.8-5.2 on water

Not true, they both overclock about the same. The records for 2500k and 2600k are within .1Mhz, at 5.9 and 6.0 respectively. HT is turned off for high clocks so effectively the 2600k is a 2500k.

So what your telling me is that the 2500k is better because its $100 cheaper

The 2600K and 2500K should overclock about the same.

The 2600K does have more cache increasing probablity of a limit but then again they are better binned.
Once again...

I never said it was "better", simply that they overclock about the same. It's up to you to decide whether the HT of the 2600k is worth the $100 extra. For most users, it's not. For those who encode video and use other heavily multithreaded apps, it is.

better bins usually clock higher and are overall better.
i think $100 is a big steep for HT and extra cash though.

i guess if u want the best u need to pay a little bit more.
