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.

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

Devil's Canyon is coming out sooner rather than later, but I think Haswell-E is still awhile away... Which is why you should get something cheap to hold you over! biggrin.gif

The H110 has a bigger aluminum rad and a better warranty, but the H220/Glacer have copper radiators, much better pumps, and are expandable.

This is a hard one, but with your criteria i think im going to recomend the 4770k, ive had a 4770k with a M6F and a M6E and it was pretty nice, and now a 3930k and sabertooth. Unless you plan on going tri-quad sli the extra lanes doesn't gain you anything, i have the same scores with 2 x16 pcie 3.0 lanes as i did with x8/x8 lanes on the M6F. I do though like having the extra lanes available for the ability to add PCIE expansion cards such as SSD's or something new in the future.

The 4770k is faster due to its clock cycles being better then a 4820k, so your 4.5ghz 4770k overclock is probably like a 4.8GHZ ivy-e overclock and like a 5ghz sandy-e.

No Comparison in my experience, 4820K.

Jamie has H110, no point really in buying a H220 if you already have something that can do the job.

Really my argument is not that the 4820k is better than the 4770k, IMO the CPUs are basically as good, the 4820k seems to OC a bit better than the 4770k, especially before delidding, but the per clock performance of the haswell is obviously higher. Instead my argument is that spending 250+USD on a Z87 board is a waste of money, you might as well get something like a UD3H or something in that price bracket, and save yourself the money. But, if you are set on spending a lot of money on a motherboard, getting an X79 is the better option, especially since you can get a 6-core later on.

The 4770k is faster due to its clock cycles being better then a 4820k, so your 4.5ghz 4770k overclock is probably like a 4.8GHZ ivy-e overclock and like a 5ghz sandy-e.

Haswell is only 10% faster. So, it's really not that much of a difference. That's also including a slight bump to the stock base multi as well. None of them are really all that different. My reasoning behind it is the the option of throwing a hex-core in the system later down the line when money allows. My second system is for others to use when over at my house and for rendering videos. Eventually, I'll will be rendering more videos and actually learning photoshop, so the option of going to a hex-core in the future with a minimal upgrade fee to the x79 platform (about 50 usd) is a very compelling option to me. That machine only sees gaming once a week, and otherwise is used for photoshop and premier pro or some web browsing while gaming on my main machine in between rounds of a game.

Also, yeah I have the H110, I"ll be fine until I decide to go custom water on it as well. I might also be selling the H110 for an H105 so I can do P/P More of an aesthetic thing than a performance upgrade, although it will net slightly lower temps being in P/P compared to the H110. They are about 2C different with stock fans, so I might get 2-3C at most lower, but I hate 280 rads, lol. I might eventually upgrade the case as well and make it my NAS, so the option of all those lanes is awesome. Although, I'll still only be using one card.

My situation is one of the few situations where it would make sense to pick a 4820k with a higher priced motherboard vs the 4770k which, as long as you don't need all the bells and whistles, will be fine with just about any z87 board. My other reasoning is aesthetic. I absolutely despise the ROG black and red theme. I'm so tired of it, so when I found out my friend was selling his second system (X79 Deluxe and 4820k) I told him to save it for me until I sold my current secondary set up. I put a lot of emphasis on aesthetics as I believe if you're spending a good chunk of change on a system, it better look good as well. Plus after custom painting my main rig, I got a new itch... Not just to upgrade hardware, but to also make it looks as great as I can. I mean, heck, I custom painted my motherboard just to fit with the scheme. (shameless build log plug) wink.gif

I recently went over to haswell with a 4770K, which i've yet to build, parts are on order. I've also got a Socket 2011 PC, 3930K. Haswell for cheaper option, S2011 is very expensive, if you need that extra bandwidth. thumb.gif

4820k+Sabertooth is not that much more expensive than the high end haswell options, and for the extra money you get more smile.gif
