5820k or 6700k; nudge me in a direction...

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So I'm considering these two CPUs, My current rig is below. I would like a CPU that will last as long as possible. I was going to wait for Zen to upgrade but at this point I don't feel like waiting 4+ months anymore. As far as my Gfx card its doing its job now and will be upgraded when vega drops with that or a 1070.

Now I know this is splitting hairs at this point, but I was thinking with Vulcan and DX12 starting to gain traction the extra 2c/4t from the 5820k may start to play a more major roll?


Uses:
gaming 1080p/60fps (144hz with future gfx card)
minor video editing
streaming movies

OCd? Yes
Water Cooled?:Yes

Anyway what do you guys think?
It would be paired with a Gigabyte G1 gaming x99m or z170mx

I'd get the 5820k because it's only like $100.00 then the 6700k.

I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me, but I would get the 5820k for the price. While the 6700k is a good CPU in terms of cost/performance it's just not worth it. I'm personally using a i5-6600k OC at 4.2 Ghz and even playing CPU intensive games I can't get it above 80% while running 2 1440p monitor and one is 144hz. I would consider the 6700k only if 1) You don't plan to upgrade for a while 2) You use CPU rendering 3) You play a lot of CPU intensive games such as WoW, Ark, badly optimized ports or frikkin Arma 3.

Keep in mind that the 5820k can go up to 4.5Ghz at 1.300V at 80-85~C under stress, although I personally would not advise it since you mentioned you would like your CPU to last as much as possible.

So you think in the long run the 6700k may be better off 4+ yrs down the road?

I think the i7-5820K would be better for the long-term, but it's honestly splitting hairs. Either would be good for at least five years.
post #6 of 32
If you are gaming, then I would actually drop down to the i5 6600K.

The i7 only offers hyper threading which really does not make a difference in games or in most day to day applications.

Use the money you saved on either a better GPU, monitor, or heck even a nicer case.

I have to concur here. I run a 5820k and have since it launched and I have no plans to upgrade; it's a great proc. However, based on your use case; I'd probably build out a 6600k at the moment and use the extra funds on a SSD, GPU etc.

EDIT:

Based on what I see at Newegg right now, you stand to save $100-150. That's not peanuts. That's a category shift up in GPU and a capacity shift up for SSD. Plus you lose nothing performance wise for your use case.

Go for the 6700K + a 3200mhz DDR4 it wins 99% of all benchmarks :


Plus a good air cooler and overclock the beast to 4.6-4.7 GHz depending on your luck.

7700k around the corner. WAIT for it and pass on the 6700k I would not even consider or be interested building around a 6700k atm. Because of the 7700K that is in coming. Also suppose to be about a 10% increase over a 6700k in performance.
