4690k vs 6600k Water Cooled

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,
After being in various stages of disrepair over the last month (my d5 vario died on me, new pump/res was giving me trouble priming) I finally got my loop back together to find that I'm pretty certain my delidded ivy bridge bit the dust at some point in the process of cleaning and replacing TIM under the heatspreader. Anyway, haven't actually confirmed if it's dead yet but I'm preparing to jump ahead a generation or two. So here's my main question: on water and at average stable oc, which one of these chips would perform better? I've heard that devil's canyon ocs better than the skylake chips, but that begs the question of whether the base performance of skylake is improved enough to render that irrelevant. Thoughts?

Take this with a grain of salt as I don't own either of them, but everything I've read suggests you might as well treat them as equals.

If you already have a motherboard that supports the 4690k I'd probably go that route. If you need to buy a motherboard either way of then I'd get the 6600k.

Hmmm well I'd have to get a new mobo either way so I guess skylake is the way to go. That leaves me an upgrade path to kaby Lake if I really want to/can afford to. If only this problem could've waited a few months...

If only there was a time when that statement wasn't always true!

I don't think you can go wrong with Z170. There are a bunch of options out there and many of them are priced pretty well. If you're sticking with an i5 it'll be an economical upgrade and I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun with it.
