Broadwell-E thread - Page 19

post #181 of 7252
I got myself the 6800K, Gigabyte X99P-SLI, and 32 gigs of Crucial Ballistix. This has been a good upgrade!

Originally, though, I had the MSI X99A RAIDER, which I discovered doesn't support TurboBoost 3.0, meaning I wasn't able to overclock at all using that board. Luckily I shop at Microcenter, and exchanging it for the Gigabyte one was easy-peasy, and it was only $13 more expensive!

So far, my overclocking has gotten me to 4.2GHz at 1.300 V, but I haven't been able to go much higher than that. Even at 1.400 V, the chip just refuses to remain stable at 4.3. It's possibly because I've literally only been changing the multiplier and core voltage, so there's probably some other settings I could adjust to get it to go higher. Right now, though, it stays pretty cool under load (60C), and I'm happy with that.

It's been great for rendering, giving me almost double the speed of my previous 4670K, and the benchmarks I've run have really shown the improvement. But above all, being able to stream games at 60FPS without any hiccups has really opened my eyes.

Now I'll just have to wait and see if I regret not getting the 5820k over this.

Same issue here with MSI boards. I basically have a $540 glorified OEM prebuild computer board now. Hope MSI provides an updated bios pronto.

Sounds like 4.3-4.4 is a great overclock for broadwell and 4.5 is a gold chip. Such a dissapointing chip for overclockers. I think I will try to get a used system and wait for skylake-x and hope it overclocks like 6700k

Same here, was planning on 8 or 10 core Broadwell E, but $1700 for mediocrity in overclocking and IPC increase rolleyes.gif... back to witcher 3 blood and wine, will check back next year with skylake X. Still waiting on 1080ti as well.

mATX X99 boards are almost non existent now. All the EVGA Micro 2 and Asus-M WS boards seem to be sold out everywhere. What gives?

For overclocking it is just as bad as Broadwell. Broadwell didn't improve as it matured, I don't expect Broadwell-E to either.

My 6900K is out for delivery today. I am having some buyers remorse if I should have picked the 6950X instead and return this one.. rolleyes.gif

6900k is something pretty good, just stick with it. That is the chip that I'm considering myself. Just mulling over selling the 1680 v2 to do so, Just don't want seller's remorse after it's sold. It's been very good to me.

You are most probably right. And I could pick up the Rampage V Edition 10 for the extra money I'd have to put in the 6950X. wink.gif

The 1680 V2 sounds like a sweet chip and you should get a good price if selling it. You might not see a whole lot of difference if you move to 6900K (outside benchmarks). I am running 4960X/RIVE BE in the mean time and this combo is rocksolid...
