I7 5820k (Haswell-E) or I7 6700K (Skylake) - Page 20

post #191 of 235
Have only just started following this thread and I'm in the same boat, with a 2500k and a 980ti. X99 seems like the way to go with a 5820k. What motherboards do you guys recommend? I've had a few recommendations towards the ASUS x99 line. Looking at the deluxe (or pro) 3.1 they seem to have every feature under the sun available and as it should last a solid 5+ years that may come in handy to have. Also ASUS have those extra pins on the socket and I love overclocking so better stability there.

Honestly I am not recommending Asus on x99 at this moment until they isolate the bug they have. It effects a super small amount of boards but across all lines of their x99 boards there is an overvolt bug that will kill the cpu. It happened to me and a few others to the point that there is a thread on OCN about it. I was restarting my sabertooth x99 build and got an error and it booted to bios where it showed the cpu had 1.8v....killed the cpu and newegg handled the exchange on both items.

I have really liked the msi line and asrock boards, I have done builds with both and have been solid. I have not yet used gigabyte...actually the only brand I have NEVER done a build with for some reason.

mentioned thread
http://www.overclock.net/t/1561131/5960x-dead

I do want to mention, its a super tiny group if you look at the big picture, but I rather provide the info and let the consumer decide.

I have the MSI X99S SLI Plus and it's very nice. I haven't had any issues with it at all *knocks on wood*

The motherboard has a blacked out thing going on with the whole PCB being black and every plastic piece and every heatsink black. It goes with almost any color scheme you might want to do.

MSI has a few more Motherboards for x99 as well from what I've seen so you could take a look at them if you want. They don't seem to come with some of the 'bells and whistles; that Asus has on their mobo's, though.

If there is any advice I can give you if you go with the same motherboard, it would be that the diagram in the manual for the Ram channels is wrong. Where you would normally stick ram in slots 1,3,5 & 7, on this motherboard the ram channels are right next to each other instead, like:

Channel A Slots 1,2
Channel B Slots 3,4
Channel C Slots 5,6
Channel D Slots 7,8

So when you go to check out reviews you will see a lot of people talking about issues with the motherboard and Ram, and that's why lol.

Thank you both, this is very helpful info biggrin.gif I had not heard about the asus x99 problems and the msi boards do look very nice and would suit my design s well I think.

ASUS will replace both the CPU and mobo if it happens as they request both be RMA'd together to analyse the issue. So don't worry about the OV issue; your money is safe with ASUS. I'd suggest buying the Intel Tuning Plan if you're going to be doing heavy overclocking.

Yeah, those asus boards do have some really nice features like great on board wifi etc so nice to know I have a safeguard if it happens. just saw intels overclocking warranty, only $25/£17 seems like a fair deal for a £300 cpu, and I've had a lot of practise with over clocking on my old & reliable 2500k and g43-z77a mobo.

I just bought a 5820K and an Asus x99 Sabertooth. I chose the Sabertooth because I'm going to be using a noctua NH-D15 and it has a metal backplate to help prevent flex. Also, I like being able to control all the individual fans from their own headers. I also purchased the Intel Over-clocking plan, so if anything does happen and Asus or newegg don't step up and handle it, I'll only have to buy a new board.

First and foremost, do you have a case that supports E-ATX? Because if you don't, then you're limiting your options. Unfortunately, my case only supports ATX, and I don't have the extra funds to buy all my components and a new case, so I ended up with an X99 Sabertooth. Though, I may have chosen it anyway for the reasons I stated above.

If you're looking at the absolute highest end x99 boards, you're going to have to go with E-ATX and expect to pay $400-$500 for it. There are plenty of good ATX options in the ~$300 range, though. Just throwing this out there.

I have a Design S, so only atx support with it. But I don't need e-atx size or gpu slots as I won't do more than 2 card sli, and the e atx boards are nearly £400/$600 which is out of my price range. Around the £300/$455 mark is tops for the motherboard as it will be come too much overkill for just a 5820k and obvious budget reasons. Won't buy it for a while yet though so prices may decrease a bit when I buy hopefully smile.gif

I see alot of reports of 4.2, 4.3ghz for the 5820, are those people who haven't dumped the time into finding the best overclock? Or is it that they need better cooling solutions? Or do some chips just pull up short?

Depends on the level of stability you are looking for.

4.2-4.3GHz is the limit if you want to be able to torture your chip with the heaviest arbitrary loads possible and not risk drastically reduced processor life, but 4.5GHz is not uncommon for general use stability.

Not a Haswell-E, but this was my best i7 920, which was soldered, that I delidded several years back with about twenty-five sheets of sandpaper: http://www.overclock.net/image/id/9100030

Chip worked fine for quite a while after the delid.

If your triceps or elbows aren't up to manually sanding through 2.5mm of copper, it's also perfectly possible to cut the adhesive, then heat the IHS till it falls off of a soldered CPU.
