Mh which is easier to overclock with water? 4930x or 4770k? i have read the 4770k is very heaty...and 4930..can't find reviews..

4930k will have better temps for sure, as the IHS is soldered to the chipset. However, not all 4770ks overheat, you could try delidding it (wouldn't recommend it, but tons of people are doing it), or you could go all out for a 4930k, but I still wouldn't recommend it.

What would be better if you plan on gaming and streaming at the same time, a 4770k or 4930k?

Depends.

If you hard core stream, you might as well get something like an FX-8350.

It's occasional or for fun, and you don't care about every frame, than get an 4770k.

4930k is for hardcore professional desktop applications.

I currently have an fx-8150. I just purchased a 4770k. In all the research I've been doing regarding real gaming benchmarks, workstation type applications, and synthetic benchmarks, the 4770k dominates the fx-8350 in everything.

What's funny is I swapped out my stock running i7 920 for a 2.13Ghz Xeon 6 core 32nm chip and it feels faster.. good luck with the 4 core

I have a pretty fast 3930K (4.7~4.9GHz on water, depending on mood, just don't like folding @ 4.9GHz for weeks).

I would say 4770K should do the job just fine.

I would also say, that IB-E or SB-E + 850W PSU won't be able to clock high, having 2x Titans in the "loop" at the same time - not enough juice.
I hit more than 700W (wall measurement) with a single Titan and a clocked 3930K. The 3930K alone is 300W.

2x clocked cards and a clocked s1150 should be closing the limits of any 850W, s2011 will probably exceed them.

Hell, 4670k.

The 4930K is made for hardcore video editing and photo editing, NOT gaming, and in some cases preforms worse in games.

For gaming, Haswell would be the better choice.

I'd say you get a 4670k, and the i7 has benefits only in video editing, rendering, 3d applications, etc.

I'd also recommend you switch your Titans to a 780 in SLI, as the Titans are very similar to the 780 in gaming uses.

That is such poor advice. A 4670k will totally bottleneck dual Titans and is a really bad choice if you're thinking into the future more than 6-12 months. As games become optimized for greater core count, ivy-e will be the way to go for gaming. And how often are you just running a game on your computer at any given time? More cores = more free resources for the game to use which equals less frame drops and higher overall fps.

Don't even think about an 8350. It is a horribly designed architecture that has so many internal bottlenecks that it's not even worth looking into. A 4770k is decent but I would recommend a 3770k over a 4770k because it has higher OC potential and the motherboards are generally cheaper. But since OP said he is not worried about cost, a 4930k is the right choice. It will give you the best performance in games in the future by a significant margin compared to the 4770k and is easily the best gaming processor out right now if you can afford it. There will also be no bottlenecks in the near future as gpu's increase in performance exponentially these days.
