Q6600 lasted me 7 years, will 5820k do the same? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
The 5960x and the 5930k support 40 PCIe lanes, while the 5820k supports 28 PCIe lanes. It's not a huge deal if you don't plan on multiple GPUs and/or PCIe SSDs.

Hmm. I plan on 1-2 GPUs & maybe 5 SSDs, but may run those sata

I see the 5930k is .2ghz faster than the 5820k, and has the 40 pcie capabilities, but is it worth twice the price? Is it comparable in every other way as far as overclocking, quality, stability, longevity etc?

If you hold on to your cpu for 7 years I would say jump for the 5960X.

Longevity really isn't an issue between the 3 chips unless x16 PCIe lanes become important. There is little difference between a GPU using 16 or 8 lanes.

I have the 5960x and have overclocked it to 4.5Ghz (4.6Gnhz, but never stressed it). The only real reason to get the 5930k is for the PCIe lanes. With a 5820k, you could SLI and have one PCIe SSD (like the Intel 750). One GPU at 16, one at 8, and the SSD at 4. You would be out of lanes at that point unless you have the first GPU running at x8. This really depends on the motherboard, so read carefully. wink.gif Some motherboards might allow x8/x8/x8 with 3 GPUs and you can still use an x4 SSD. I haven't researched it because I went with a 40m lane CPU.

I suppose the importance of the PCIe lanes could change in the near future. Maybe the next release of GPUs will take more advantage of x16 lanes.

The 3 x99 chips are all basically the same. You start with the 5820k, the 5930k adds 12 PCIe lanes and the 5960x adds 2 more cores, more cache and more threads.

This is what I did, I started with the 5820k in my wishlist. When it came time to put items in the cart, it was the 5960x. biggrin.gif It's a beast with all the threads and cores and I was shocked at the speeds I can get across all cores.

It's expensive though (understatement) and if you don't need the lanes, the 5820k is an awesome option.

One thing to keep in mind. I don't know if you plan on overclocking, so here are some points:

5280k is base 3.3ghz and turbo's up to 3.6ghz. Compared to the 3/3.5 on the 5960X.

Now if you plan on overclocking you can throw those clocks out the window. The 5960X will require more voltage to overclock to the same level as the 5280 and because of that will generate more heat on top of having 2 extra cores that generate heat as well. So you will need a better cooling solution.

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

Same here, still rocking OG i7 920 that i built years ago and its is still plenty fast.

Q6600 to an i5 2500K would be a massive upgrade. to a 5820K? that would be mind boggling.

Lolol just what I was hoping for!

Even better would be the 5960x!

Don't the 6 core X99 CPU's clock higher than the 8 core regardless of cooling? 5960X is REALLY hard to call worth it. You'd have to be taking advantage of the 8 threads on a daily basis to justify the massive price IMO. Even if you have it 5-7 years there's no point in wasting money if you're wasting money. redface.gif So what will you be using it for? minecraft lol
