True. It used to matter for folding though but now that they changed it all up the bigadv it isn't really beneficial.

A couple of things 2500k owners forget to mention is that the 2600k also has 2mb more of L3 cache and higher GPU max freq. The 2mb of cache is important for over all better performance (8 cores, 8 mb of cache) . Also I would leave HT on its what makes a 2600k better, 8 cores, think about it. Some poeple turn it off to get higher Oc's. You should be able to get 4600 Ghz with it on and with only a +multi to 46. So for the extra 100-200 Mhz its really not worth tuning off. Theres to much 2500k hype here to the point that its confusing some 2600k owners. tongue.gif

Also the 2600k is only about $65-$70 more in Canada , and as you can see the ONLY time you can say its the same CPU but with a 100 MHz difference is when you compare the 2600k to the 2700K,, Not I5 to I7

I OC with my base clock as much as my multi. For my set up it nets the best performance and best stability. Base clk of 107.0MHz and a mulit of 42 gets me just about 4.5GHz and its way better then 45 and 100.

Yes sir, that's true ocing, that would also give your ram a nice bump up too

If you look at the SB stable club and do some research on the statistics you'll notice that 2600K/2700K are generally higher binned. Personally I use HT for folding, but I mostly went with the 2600K because I wanted a non crippled CPU and could afford it.

According to AIDA I am above the top Sandy E running at stock speeds ram wise. CPU wise I am only right below it. Then again its a benchmark so real world mileage is way different.

Agreed, its nice to see people adjusting more then the multiplier thumb.gif

But if you think again, both of them can reach the same frequencies and in fact the 2500K can do it with less voltage. But if you could afford it I can't say much, it's your money.
