I was wondering what the general opinion here is between these CPUs.

Edit: Background info, a friend told me quad core LGA 2011 is a waste...

Here's the situation:

  • Budget is ~200-250GBP for the board, or 280-350USD if you are from the other side of the pond.
  • We will assume that both CPUs cost the same, the 10 quid difference doesn't matter too much in a 1500 pound build.
  • Single Graphics card, probably 780/780Ti/290x.
  • Used for gaming, streaming is a possibility too.
  • Custom water loop, or H100i. Basically high performance cooling.
  • CPU will be overclocked, heavily if possible.
  • Motherboard size is unrestricted, ITX==>XLATX/EATX/SSI-CEB (or whatever those server size formfactors are)
  • Additional funding in 1 year would be 1000 GBP/1400USD
  • Not considering Haswell-e or Devil's Canyon


I can modify these where necessary, upon request.

I'd personally go with the 4820k to have the option to upgrade to the 4930k later. Also, I think there is more OC headroom in the IV-E chips, or at least I don't have to fiddle around delidding the stupid things to get the headroom (intel pls). Add the better SLI capability and overall more stuff on the chipset, pretty much seals the deal. Also, IMO there's not much point in going over 150 quid on a Z87 mobo, you might as well step up to LGA2011...

As for component selection...

For with the 4770k I'd probably go with the Maximus 6 Formula, or just save myself some cash and buy a UD4H.

For the 4820k I'd probably be looking towards the Sabertooth, otherwise anyone here have any suggestions within that price bracket?

And for my all out opinion on if I was to do a build now, I'd say wait for Haswell-E

I'd say the 4820k as well. It might not offer a performance difference over a 4770k , but you have the option to expand in the future. I actually plan on selling my 4770k and Hero to a friend so that I can buy a ASUS X79 Deluxe and 4820k.

Wait for X99 Haswell-E IMO.

I would, but I can't justify the cost. I'm basically not losing any money switching from a 4820k and it gives me the option to snatch up a hex-core chip when people switch for cheap while in turn selling the 4820k. hex-cores work well enough for what I do, not to mention I have two systems, one dedicated to rendering and editing/gaming when a friend is over, and then I have my main machine for actual gaming and other stuff. So, I really don't even need a hex-core chip because it doesn't matter how long it takes, but meh. If i can get one cheap enough, i might as well.

No waiting for Devil's Canyon? frown.gif. Intel might be releasing unlocked i7s with eDRAM cache, which would be quite nice for gaming.

Anyway, I'd go with a 4670k and a UD3H. It's practically as fast as a 4820k, and all that money you save can be put towards a custom loop, bigger GPU, or Haswell E in the future.

Also, be sure to get a Swiftech H220/H320 or Cooler Master Glacer over the H100i, they're just better for the money.

I'd also say Haswell-E as that'll get you firmly into DDR4, with an X99 mobo that should last a few years, and hopefully 6 cores (with 8 possibly if 5930K has 8 cores) which'll be good for streaming. If neither of these OC well, (from reviews/other OCNers) then the 4820K/4923K will hopefully be a cheaper platform at that stage.

 

With a setup like that you're pretty much set for at least 2 years, so the update money can be focused on peripherals and some 20nm GPUs :thumbsups

Also, don't be so sure about hexacores dropping in price. Just look at the i7-970/980X or the 3930k... They're all still pretty expensive.

Look at LGA 1366 Xeons though. Should be the same with x79 xeons, but no overclocking them. =./

That H110 should do on the 2011 chips...

I'd go with X99 over Z97 if I had the choice... DDR4, SATA-express, 8-cores, me wants it! biggrin.gif

Oh, and I edited some stuff into the OP
