[GAMING] 5820K VS 6700K - Page 37

post #361 of 693
When I first bought Skylake I thought I`ll just go with 6600K and now after having played with it for 4 months I really want to upgrade to a 6700K or a 5820K and for the life of me I cant figure out wich one to go for.
Originally the idea with going skylake was that I`ll upgrade to a PCIE SSD but 2x samsung 850EVO @ raid0 is more then good enough for me so I dont really need PCIEx4 for my SSD.
All I really do with my PC is game on it, with a single GPU. Price is roughly the same for 5820+motherboard and 6700K+motherboard, since I would just sell my ASUS Z170-A and 6600K when upgrading, if nothing else just to try a new motherboard I`ve had ASUS motherboards in my rigs for far too long now.
But overall 6700K seems to be a better choice for purely gaming, since its alot cheaper

why what are you playing?
upgrading from 6600k to 6700k will get you less than 5% performance increasing in games assuming your 6600k is a equally capable overclocker with the exception of a few crysis 3 levels that only seem to be optimized for well over 4 threads

5820k may help improve fps ~20% if your trying to run a properly multithreaded game over 144fps with enough gpu power and a lucky oc

That's weird, I had HT disabled over year on my Ivy-E, and I didn't missed it for gaming a single bit. Now I have enabled it for testing purposes to load all parts on CPU and the only thing that feels snappier are windows. And it still might be because I badly remember how it worked with HT disabled. There is definitely no improvement in games, more the opposite.

2 more real cores might be nice, but that 6-core has low base clock which mean if reasonable OC would be possible, it would generate more heat not counting that additional cores. Quad channel is nice, but Skylake DOES have certain improvements in efficiency. (Thought some games were worse on Skylake than on 4690K.)

Going from 6600K to HW-E would mean replacing CPU by a CPU from previous generation.

I'm still trying to decide between Z170 and X99. I mostly just want something new but I also want to build a new system before the Windows 10 upgrade expires.

I was offered a 5930K for $400 which is so darn tempting! drool.gif I was set on getting a 6700K but prices are too high and spending that much on a new system only to be stuck with 4 cores again feels wrong. With HSW-E you also get a soldered chip versus cheap TIM and no bend-gate.

For a whole new build i'd say go. get a 5820K instead.My bad. That is tempting. For gaming, just upgrade your gpu to a Fury or 980Ti perhaps and oc your cpu to 4.5 - 4.7 GHz.

I had some interest in reading this thread because i'm in the process of looking to build a new gaming PC as i don't currently have a gaming PC. New to these forums as well. I'd hope i'd maybe get a good answer here but after 2 days of reading the massive amount of pages in this forum thread i'm disappointed to say i don't have a unified decision on either CPU and still as undecided which CPU for my new PC Build. Deciding between either 5820K and 6700K CPU seems to also be deciding between a X99 or Z170 Motherboard.

I'm still undecided! I'd like to build my new PC with parts and not be or feel like i'm behind not getting the best parts currently as in MOBO and CPU.

Both chips are excellent as I owned both. The motherboard offerings/selection in the Z170 chipset are better in my opinion. I ended up switching to the Z170 platform due to how many issues i had with two MSI X99's.

Instead of deciding on what chip, start looking at motherboards, the features you need, ratings etc

i had the same struggle wen i started to build my new rig recently... It was between Z170 and X99.... and 6700k or 5820K. i ended up going with the X99/ 5820k because at the end of the day it is the superior setup. for a couple hundred dollars more it is more "future proof" ... and so far im very happy with it. you can checkout my build in my Sig. right now im at 4.4Mhz @ 1.27v.... got my Ram running at 3200 C15... Cache at 4200Mhz.... Everything is blazing fast. the extra cores are just a no brainier.

5820K. I have 3770k and x5675 both overclocked to 4.5Ghz and 4.4Ghz. Hexacore CPUs from Intel are absolute monsters.
