Q6600 lasted me 7 years, will 5820k do the same?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I've had an Intel quad core Q6600 for the last 7 years and it's worked flawlessly and I never even overclocked it.

I'm now in the midst of building a new rig that will hopefully last at least 5+ years and was going to get the Intel 5820k and will probably overclock it at some point since I will be doing a watercooled machine.

So will the 5820k last me 5-7 years for my next build or should I be looking at another CPU?

I hope so because everything I've read says the 5820k is the bees knees in terms of everything else.

If you were happy with Q6600 performance up until recently then I don't see why the 5820k won't give you the same longevity.

Awesome, GREAT to hear!

Just out of curiosity, would there be any other CPU of mobo platform to consider for longevity like that besides 5820k & X99?
post #5 of 23
at this time no the 6700k still Quad core + HT

Nope, the 5820k should do very well. I still use my i7 920 rig that I built in 2008 for lots of things, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Unless some massive CPU revolution happens, you'll be fine.

I'd probably save up and get the 8-core hotness though. That's just me.

yes, 5820 will last you a long time. I would upgrade to it too, but am waiting for AMD Zen and intel hexa-core(s) on their mainstream platform

When is this supposed to be out & will it be compatible with the x99 platform?

The 5960X is an 8 core for the x99 platform.

Wow at 3x the price of a 5820k, I don't know if it's worth it. Maybe in the future when the prices really drops on them I'll upgrade the x99 platform to it since it will probably be the last CPU for x99.

Is it comparable to the 5820k in every other way besides being 8 core? stability, quality, overclocking, longevity etc?
