Ok guys upgrading my system. 6700k or 5820k?

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
I am leaning hard on the 5820k just for the shear fact it has 2 extra cores and it's on the x99 platform. Plus quad channel memory is something awesome to look at when set up! thumb.gif This 6700k I have seen has been kicking some a** in games etc. Is there any reason for me to consider the 6700k or just get on x99 and never look back? lol

It depends on what you are going to do but if you have the money (and X99 is not that much more expensive) then why not?

For multimedia the i7 - 5820k is a beast.

I just did the same thing and pulled the trigger on the 5820k. Since the cost difference for me was only $40 more over a skylake build.

Tom's Hardware just published the Best CPUs. They say if you're going for the 300$+ price range, go with the 5820k. 12 threads? Yes please. tongue.gif

Thread Starter 
I went with the MSI X99a Krait edition $260.00 for the motherboard. Mostly for it's looks going into a white H440. I am able to pick up the 5820k for $320.00 from microcenter by me or the 6700k for $330.00 but with a Asus hero VIII t $210 with it. So it comes out to a bit cheaper for the skylake build but everything seems to be pointing at the direction of going x99.

I was just hoping someone could talk me out of it. lol but for only 40-60 bucks difference. 12 threads and quad channel sounds pretty awesome! biggrin.gif

But no one wants to do that.

40 bucks is nothing at all. Usually it costs 100 - 200 bucks more to get X99 overall. Depending on the mainboard and such.

It is a very good upgrade path. Don't worry.
