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.

the 2700k is a 2600k but clocked 100mhz higher stock, It's basicly a $40 boost to your E-penis , So for $40 extra dollars you can have a CPU that most people here don't have. After you overclock, the 2700k and the 2600k, they become the same CPU, thats why the 2700k is excluded in almost every bench test, it was never intended to replace the 2600k . I know this is an enthusiast site but people need to remember that the majority of CPU owners DON'T overclock therefore buying a chip like the 2700k is worth it because it's clocked higher. Also Intel didn't modify the 2600k so it can't oc as high as the 2700k (rumors) , If that was true then it would be common knowledge and almost every 2600k user here that OC's would have a 2700k instend. So there are 2700k chips out there that dont oc welll either, some chips oc better then others, it always been that way
When compared to a 2500k the differences are much greater with HT. So please don't go 2500k you'll end up like other members here posting " I wish I bought a 2600k when I had the chance" where as I have never once read a member stating " I'm so glad I bought a 2500k instead of the 2600k I really dodged a bullet there". Also Ivy is here soon and your 2700 will be more furture proof.

I also just bought a 2600k and with no tweeking I uped the multi to 49 and my system booted, granted it wasn't stable, But I'm new to Intel Ocing and havent had a chance to get into it. But if my chip could do that I'm pretty sure reading what I've read I can get it stable. I do have a 4.6 stable OC HT ON with just the multi @ 46. So my chips good (I've also read a high success rate for high oc's with the 2600k), I have read a few people here that couldn't get higher then 4.4 and even a 4.2 but that could also be MOBO/ cooling related, or maybe even user error. band.gif

Thanks for the really detailed answer but what difference will it make if I get the 2600k instead of the 2500k? In terms of usage. Most people here said that I won't need HT because I'm going to do mostly gaming. And also people said that over locking with HT on is difficult, I said in an earlier part that I havn't OC'ed before. Should I be concerned about overclocking or not?

i say the 2500k would be good enough. The new ivy-bridge CPU are coming out in spring, that's something to look forward to.

The 2600k is a more well rounded CPU, especially if you're not overclocking, It has 2 MB more L3 cache which enhances performance and HT, (meaning your computer sees the chip as 8 cores instead of 4 core) and is clocked slightly higher (it's faster at stock speeds). In terms of gaming just gaming the 2500k and the 2600k perform about the same for now. But I promise you more games in the future will be taking advantage of the HT. So with a 2600k you have a more future proof build. When you go outside of gaming the 2600k out performs the 2500k in almost everything.

As for overclocking, I just bought the 2600k, NEVER Oced an intel chip before and only + the multiplyer to 45. I got an instant (stable tested) 4.5 Ghz with HT on. I had no problems with HT and it was the easiest oc i EVER did. More owners say they had NO problems oc'ing the 2600k. I hear more 2500k owners stating that 2600k has issues (hmmmmm) wink.gif
375

The choice between the two is yours , and if you cant wait on IVY and you have the money, the 2600k isn't much extra ($299 in Canada, $65 difference). I would go 2600k (which I did), for a more performance rounded and future proof rig. And to answer tyour orginal question, you don't need a 2700k becuase it's a 2600k, but if it's only $40 difference then I would but one.
