Thinking of buying a 4.4Ghz 6800k. New customer. - Page 3

post #21 of 70
Thread Starter 
The 6800k (4.4Ghz) arrived today! Fast shipping and by the looks of it, the box is sealed? I'm guessing siliconlottery knows what 6800k batch does what and no need to test the CPU before shipping? I can't test it until my Asus Rampage V Edition 10 mobo arrives.

Look closer, it's not sealed. The sticker must have gotten pressed back on during shipping.

The Rampage V Edition 10 just came back in stock on Newegg yesterday, so you should get it in the next few days assuming your order was placed before it shipped. (or did you buy from amazon or something? amazons pre-orders are backed up to hell btw, nobody seems to be getting them. So might be better going to another place)


Don't worry, you'll LOVE the Rampage V Edition 10, it's a GREAT board! I do REALLY still love my Rampage V Extreme though...so it's a hard decision to sell it; especially since i'm only getting a bit less than $300 for it since i set it at $300 for sale on amazon and reverb and probably will only get about $700 after seller fees on my 5960X i put up with it.

If i can sell my 5960X and Rampage V Extreme, assuming Amazon or reverb.com doesn't hold the funds for a crazy amount of time, then i'm ALMOST tempted to go for an i7 6900K to get back the eight cores i'm used to. Not sure though. Overall minus what i payed for the 6800K i'll have ~$1,650 after selling the 5960X and Rampage V Extreme, so if i hadn't bought the 6800K or returned it i could TECHNICALLY even afford a 6950X monster 10 core but dat price doe.....($2000 for a 4.4ghz bin!!! That's a tad crazy, no offense SL tongue.gif A decently larger price bump than all the other BW-E chips went to from 4.3 to 4.4)

Kinda thinking of just sticking with the 6800K instead of upping to 8 core 6900K or higher etc.. though, and just maybe getting an external 1080mm rad to get closer to ambient temps, plus some new fans, sleeved PSU cables, that delid tool when it comes out etc.. combining the better cooling capacity with a ~8C average temp drop from delidding the 6800K i might be able to stably hit 4.5ghz at a nice voltage, or possibly push 4.6ghz for a quick bench or two drool.gif Could always go for a 950 Pro NVme SSD too i guess, or the new SM961/960 Pro if it ever comes out...

Thanks for the kind words. The board looks amazing. I'll probably end up keeping it since it's an anniversary edition.

I'm planning on sticking with my 6800k until something blows me away AND games really start needing more than 6 cores. Until then, I'll wait until I can buy a 4.8Ghz+ 8-10 core for a better price than what Intel charges these days.

Yup, np thumb.gif

The one thing that worries me is that when Skylake X and Kaby Lake X comes out next summer or so, i'll end up craving it and since it won't fit my Rampage V Edition 10 i'll end up with my "must have new stuff' OCD hitting me and selling it even though i love it to death lol.

I do video rendering and editing for youtube and streaming etc.. on top of generic gaming and browsing etc.. so i AT LEAST need 6 cores, and kinda prefer 8. My logic was that if the 6800K at 4.4ghz could equal the video rendering/editing performance of a STOCK 3.5ghz 5960X then it'd be fine as i've had my 5960X running at stock for most of the time i had it just due to general laziness after i'd update a BIOS, forgetting to re-do the 4.5ghz OC on it haha. I guess my main goal is to have closer to overclocked 6700K single core performance (i.e. gaming performance) while still have enough cores to get decent total multi-core performance so my rendering/editing isn't slowed too much. Not sure if the 6800K or the 6900K would be the best option really for me.

Well, only one way to find out. Gotta try it out. I figure it's easier to sell a $400 CPU then it is a $1100 CPU. Won't be a huge hassle if and when I upgrade.

Yeah, I'm curious about that too. Would like to see 6800K to offer similar fps in games as 6700K but I'm afraid that's not going to happen....

I've seen benches between the 6850/6800 vs the 6700k. They both performed about the same and were neck and neck at 1440p and above. I think 6700k ran The Division a lil better while the 6800k ran Far Cry Primal better. No wins for either to brag about. Once games use more cores the 6800k will pull ahead.

Honestly didn't read through this thread, but buying such a low overclock is insane. I think you would be hard pressed to find an out of the box 6800K that couldn't do 4.4Ghz. No offense to siliconlottery, but I find their service basically to be a scam. They don't offer extremely high overclocks at extremely low voltages, they offer extremely modest overclocks at average or higher than average voltages.

Yeah the IPC increase from Broadwell to Skylake is like 4-5% if that. Whereas from Haswell to Broadwell is more like ~7-8% on average (i've seen as much as 10-12% in certain tests/benchmarks/games). And since the CPU is actually becoming less and less important as games become more and more GPU intensive, and GPUs become more and more ahead of CPUs due to each GPU generation offering 25-50% performance increase over the past, with CPU generations being measly 5-15% performance increase per generation. I've seen people claiming that 3 and 4 way SLI TITAN X's were ACTUALLY "bottlenecking" their 8 core i7 5960X's a tiny bit! Which "kinda" has me a little worried about the 6800K 6 core as i'm considering going 2 way SLI 1080's which is surprisingly close to three way TITAN X's. However adding more system RAM and having a GPU with less VRAM like the 1080 with 8gb instead of 12gb on TITAN X alleviates that bottleneck somewhat usually.

Overall the only games where the 6700K pulls ahead by more than a puny 1-2fps (which can be chalked up to margin of error) is in games that are notorious for loving high clock speeds like Far Cry 4 etc.. and games that love more cores like Battlefield 4 and Total War Warhammer etc.. do a fair bit better on the 6800K. Other than that t here are basically no outliers performance wise. A 4.4ghz 6800K vs a ~4.4ghz 6700K would be basically dead identical; only reason the 6700K even gets the 1-2fps increase in a few games is either margin of error like i mentioned, OR just due to the 6700K being able to hit ~4.7ghz on average compared to ~4.3-4.4 on 6800K. Overall it's quite close though.
