2700k vs 3770k for older game pc

So I have this older gaming pc that I use daily for office work and some casual gaming but now has his first hickup.
The entire pc is custom watercooled, meaning motherboard VRM's, CPU and both GTX980's are cooled by a 3x 140mm rad.
As it was running like this for about 3j now and figured a nice clean and flush was in order to give me another couple of years out of this system.

Specs:
i5 3570k @ 4,7GHz (RIP)
Asus maximus V formula motherboard
Gskill 4x4Gb ram @ 2133MHz
2x Asus GTX 980's (SLI)
pcie nvme card 970 EVO+ (bios mod)

So a few days ago I flushed the entire system and removed the cpu block, witch was mounted on the naked 3570k. (yes been running naked for about 3years)
Replaced all the tubing remounted the cpu block, filled it up again and I got error 55 on the motherboard (ram not detected)
After remounting a couple of times and testing with another cpu/ram i found out that one memory channel of the 3570k is dead, only dimms 3 and 4 work...

Now I'm not ready to upgrade everything yet but am looking for a simpel fix for this system.
I can buy a 2th hand 3770k for around 120euro or a bit older and cheaper 2700k for around 75euro.
I'm looking at the i7's from both generations just because I might as well get the best this platform has to offer.

At the moment I am leaning towards the older 2700k cpu because its cheaper to get this system running at about the same level again.
But will the fact that its only Pcie 2.0 vs Pcie 3.0 hinder my SLI GTX980 setup ?
Also is a sandy bridge cpu capable of running 4x4gb dimms at 2.133MHz (had to drop down from 2400MHz when upgrading to 4 dimms on Ivy bridge)


What do you guys think is the best course between those 2 cpu's keeping cost in mind + it's on watercooling and will be overclocked ?

PCI-E 2.0 vs 3.0 makes little difference on a 980.

Spend the least amount of money possible to get the system usable and put the rest of the money away for a platform swap.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

Agree with Pook; get the cheaper/cheapest option.

Is a 2600K out of the question? Should be cheaper than the 2700k and is pretty much the same chip.

Never had issues running a 2600k with DDR3 2133mhz ram (4x4gbs as well). Gave it to a friend, still using it to this day.

With the current state of games regularly using more than 4 threads I would definitely go for the 2700K. It will actually be an upgrade for you.

The difference in IPC between the 2700K vs the 3770k can usually be offset by a better overclock on the 2700k due to the soldered IHS.
