If you have the h100 version that pulls power from the motherboard 3 pin and worn out and making a weird noise you could try a low noise adapter, I couldnt be arsed soldering up connectors with resisters for my h100i but you can buy ready made for the 3 pin connectors.

4ghz amd 8 cores = 2.7ghz 2 intel cores

Therefore I found out.
Game fps is purely dependant on gpu perfomance, given that your game dosen't get cpu or ram usage 90%
Normal day usage, is absolutely dependant on hdd perfomance, becuase everything you do has to read or store into hdd.

Old fashioned rubbish even back in 2010 I saw a 50% improvement in bioshock 2 moving from a e6600 to q6600 in games. Even on x58 a hex core is noticably more responsive than a quad clicking arond in windows.

talking about games, I saw zero diffrence between 2 intel vs 8 core amd

2 core and 8gb ram with fastest storage system.
fastest cpu in the world with fasted and largest ram, however stock hdd.
I would chose 2 core and fastest storarage system, its that improtant and that influential on pefromance.

I've been looking at 8600K, but I am not exactly sure how much performance gain I could get from this.
I am running a GTX 970 and other than gaming itself, I also stream/record gameplay sometimes.

Considering that you have a working X58 system but are still running a 920, I'd say you should try upgrading to a 6 core Xeon.

I can say this because I was in your shoes a couple years back. I ran a 4.2 ghz i7 920 for a long time and never had issues doing anything I wanted to do. When the Xeons started showing up for cheap I figured why not. I grabbed an X5650 and bumped it up and am still using it now.

12gb of RAM is plenty for the mean time.

Really quick and easy I hope that answers your question.

A agree with everyone else. toss a hex core in there and you're good to go.

I've been mostly happy with mine. I've had a few annoyances, but they've mostly been due to trying to do entirely too many things and running weird hardware configurations. Actual processing power is just fine.

(you may see my sigrig change soon to an 8700k or ryzen r7 build, but that is because my x58 was recently damaged in a fire and at this point, it is old enough that replacing all the parts would cost more than a modern system sadly, so don't take that as a sign of insincerity).
