2600K, but if your not doing any multi-threaded tasks, get the 2500K.

Once again your answer is sandy bridge....


Best OC headroom: sandy
Best bang for buck: sandy

Unless you are actually going to use heavy threaded apps non stop, or just really want to throw away your money, then buy a 2500k. (or even a 2600k)

If your current processor is doing fine for you then I would suggest SB-E as its just around the corner and then you can have the best of both worlds (blow a lot of cash and get the best chip possible)

That's a hard question to answer unless we know what do you do with your computer.
Though most of the time FX isn't the most cost effective option...

Yes SB is second generation.
Currently, the best Sandy Bridge processor is the i7 2600k, which will be replaced by the 2700k in the near future and then the 3960X (SB-E) in the distant future.

Sandy Bridge-E is right around the corner and will have a new generation of six-core CPUs. If you really want something with that much power it would be worth waiting until then. SB-E's gonna blast past the 990x in performance.

i want 5.5ghz stable or more. i want as little a bottle neck with 2 6990's in crossfire as possible. i have already taken care of the water cooling part trust me. i will be using the asus rampage III extreme or the best 2nd generation Sandy Bridge compatible mother board on the market depending on what i decide from this thread.

You don't need that much of an overclock for 2 6990's. Plus I wouldn't want my chip to degrade with the voltage your going to be running for 5.5GHz. And who says the chip you get will even do 5.5GHz?

Then you should wait for the 2700k (essentially higher-binned 2600k's) if you are shooting for 5.5 GHz (which in itself is an unrealistic goal)

Please fully abbreviate SB-E and when is it comming out. If its not by December than i will need the next best thing.

ok so mabey 5ghz is a more realistic OC? and Stable with little problem?

relativley low temps with a single loop?

will Sandy Bridge 2600k do the job for me?
