a 4770K/4790K is cheap nowadays too would any of those have issues with bottlenecking?

4930K owner here. Also had a MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G before I moved up to a 1080 Ti.

No bottlenecking what's so ever, even with the GTX 1080 Ti @ 2.1GHz. Currently at 4.4GHz with -0.010 offset (1.29v at load). I can go up to 4.8GHz for bench runs. I had this baby for several years now and it's been a great performer but I'll be moving up to a 6900K and selling this guy off to a buddy of mine.

If you can find a cheap X79 motherboard I say go for the 4930K. I'm seeing it as low as ~$220 for the 4930K on ebay.

yeah i been checking regularly every few weeks for the past couple months if you want one that isnt dead or has something not working its going to be expensive. the 4930K is the chea part, its the motherboards that are the problem.

What does Z97 actually add? the reason i ask is because the sabertooth board im looking at is Z87 and the Z97 version is over 100 dollars more expensive.

Alot have more power phases for OC stability, also no having to worry about flashing the bios for a 4790k to work right off the start. I'm personally not a fan of the Sabertooth boards, just over paying for plastic shielding really.

Alot have more power phases for OC stability, also no having to worry about flashing the bios for a 4790k to work right off the start. I'm personally not a fan of the Sabertooth boards, just over paying for plastic shielding really.

From what I've seen both sabertooth boards are the same as far as phase count. and with the BIOS flashback thing on all asus boards from the last few years it takes 10 seconds to flash the bios and you dont even need to have a cpu or ram installed to do it. I like the sabertooth boards ive had a few on AMD's side and one or two intel they seems to be significantly more stable plus the thermal radar is what im most interested in. having a real temp sensor on the VRM's is a huge selling point to me.
