Sub-Freezing new build. 6900K or 5960X for OC?

post #1 of 2

Cooling setup


-In another thread i'm going through building a newish sub freezing peltier chiller for my system. It's going to run in a chill-box submerged in mineral oil. The mineral oil itself is also going to be chilled on another circuit. Currently i'm able to obtain liquid temps of around -15C. With some improvements i'm doing this week i plan to get that lower down around -30. The setup will be in an oil bath that should be able to maintain around 0C, perhaps lower. That been said. I'm hoping the oil bath will allow some OC stability advantages over a CPU only sub-ambient cooler but iv'e not seen a lot of setups like that. To clarify the CPU will still have its own water block, separate cooling circuit and medium (h2O,glycol).



Board and Chip


Option 1

*Currently i'm running a 4770K on a MSI Z87-G45 with Corsair Vengeance 2400.

Option 2

6900K on Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion with (I know nothing about DDR4 as of today)


Option 3

5960X on 'Same board as above' with '?'



Conclusion

So what do you guys think? Keep what i have and OC that? The 6900k looks like its pretty damn fast, faster than the 5960X out of the box. But i figured the 5960X might have a higher oc potential, having worked with neither, and only gather information from reviews leaves me in a tough spot. Also keep in mind the aggressive cooling and how that might affect either chip if you might know something of either.

the 5960x can be oc'ed to 4.0 with no problem. If money isn't an concern go for 5960x, if not the 6700k is a beast.
