That's good to know--yeah, heard both sides of the story, never sure which to trust. Guess since it's not a sure thing, no point in spending the extra cash for a +100MHz base frequency.

only one person i think really answered your question here....

but let me just ask you this.... i don't know if you told us yet, but what are your needs?

2600k and 2500k both OC very well...some chips even got up to 5.0 ghz regardless of either one. only thing you need to consider is this:

1. Gaming? --> yes than 2500k

2. Gaming + video editing/rendering/photo editing/ high resource applications? --> 2600k

I think these are the only two reasons you need to consider...as both chips are pretty much the same thing, with the 2600k handling "2" much better.

Show those to the guy who says he won the silicon lottery with his 2500k running your speeds at 1.65v biggrin.gif I mean, sure it gets the clock speed, but would I want 1.65v on my chip? Dont think so. Also, Ive been as high as 4.8 stable on my 2600k with HT on, temps didn't go above 82 with an h-50 cooling it. I just backed it down to keep a good heat/voltage margin for everyday use. Now I don't exceed 78 on IBT maximum, and far less for other programs. Hyper threading isn't a bad thing, so don't let all the cheap people who didn't spend the extra money on it talk you down thumb.gif

The only time people had to turn off HT for stability is with Battlefield 3, where systems with HT enabled suffered from extreme micro-stutter. This issue has already been patched and both HT and non-HT systems can run BF3 fine now.
At OP - It would help if you listed some tasks you wanted to do with your system. If you are just gaming a 2500K or 2600K would be sufficient. If you are looking to stream your gaming via twitch/own3d/etc, you would probably want to invest in a 2600K depending on the software. FMLE will really push your cores and gobble up all 8 threads happily if you go that route. Both the 2600K and 2700K will have no problems going from stock to 4.7 or so, it is really the people who are after the 5ghz+ barrier who might benefit from the supposedly better binned silicon.

ok excuse my french, i aint native englsih like most users here and i used the wrong name
i looked here http://ark.intel.com/products/52214/Intel-Core-i7-2600K-Processor-(8M-Cache-3_40-GHz)
see the turbo thingie, with my english i assumed that whas the hyperthreading that it can go to 3.8
thats the part i ment to turn off.
also i reffered to it by the wrong name in my bios but i stil have that turbo core thingie that i need to turn off otherwhise the oc gets scrambled and doesnt work properly
pic is of default settings
450
so to the op turn that off if you oc and leave the ht on as i confused it.

That 1.536V in idle is 1.550V in bios with 100% LLC so in load it kick it up a notch, no water, Noctua NH-D14, I can bench it all day long at 5.5GHz 4C/8T and not all benchmarks require that voltage

About temps, check this out, open window and cold air in room, some temps captured

I'm going to use it mostly for gaming but I'm not going to upgrade my CPU any time soon so I can't guarantee I won't get Into things like photo rendering.
And the $40 difference on 2700k and 2600k in my opinion isn't worth it but idk I could be wrong. I've never overclocked a CPU before so I don't know which CPU to get.
post #38 of 45
The 2600K seems to be your best bet then, its got the performance and features to last a bit longer than the 2500k. Thats at stock levels, both will last longer when overclocked.

You never know the chip lottery could be in your favour and give you a chip that can go to 2700k levels. 4.8-5.1Ghz.

1.get the i3 2100 and then get an ivy bridge when it comes out. 2.Get sandy bridge and be happy! 3. Wait for ivy bridge period.

Here is another way to look at it to simply things:

Do you care about having the potential to hit 5ghz or more? If not then the higher binned silicon thing is irrelevant seeing as either chip will have no problems hitting 4.7, which while not record setting is still plenty fast. The extra few hundred mhz might matter to your e-peen, but in most real world settings, especially raw gaming, you will not feel the difference.
