I have budgeted either the 5960x or the new 6900k for my DAW workstation build. I plan to overclock, nothing insane, but enough for my Corsair H100i to handle. Either 8 core CPU will be a definite advantage over my present 4 core 3770k (4.2OC) . For audio work and all those VST plug-ins, the more cores, the better!

Anyway, I am worried about any potential 6900k heat issues at 4.4ghz where the 5960x seems to get up to fairly easily. Are there enough real world 6900k OC results in to draw any conclusion yet? Any hel would be appreciated.
