Upgrade of 5930K on Asus Rampage V Extreme - 6900k or 5960x

Odd question,


My 5930k overclocks to 4.4ghz on air and I was wondering, if there would be an improvement upgrading the cpu at all? I read in the ASUS CPU chart that I can use a 6900k, 6850k, 6800k, 5960X


Would there be that dramatic of a difference? My system is using a 2080ti and I am feeling a slight upgrade itch.


I even considered selling my Rampage V Extreme and getting the Rampage V 10 Anniversary Edition as it was only $100 in a trade. Any thoughts?

imo the only cpu in that list worth upgrading to is the 5960x because consoles are moving to 8 core 16 threads, and more games are starting to make use of more cores, seeing that a brand new 9600k has frame time lag that the 9900k doesn't is almost solely because of having two extra cores

in any case it's kinda looking like the 5960x cost as much as a 9900k as it is, but might be way easier to cool lol not sure how high it clocks though, if a 5ghz overclock is easy to obtain on one, I'm thinking it might hold up for quite a while, just my 2 cents tho

SPECS: No idea how to add my system like everyone else,

I wouldn't upgrade at all. You don't need to yet, PS5 is still a ways off and there may be better upgrade options by then.

The 6900k is also 8c/16t, and newer.

In my x99 days, I jumped from an x99 TUF board with a 5820k to the Rampage V Edition 10 with a 6900k and enjoyed it, but not too long after that built a 9900k rig that wiped the floor with the 'old' 6900k which sent me on a long path of spending to arrive currently on x299 with a 10980xe for my HEDT rig.

If you can get a 6900k for a very low price it might be worth it for 2 more cores, though mine couldn't OC beyond 4.5ghz all core with two thick 480mm radiators because it just got too hot at the necessary voltages. so you probably won't notice any speed difference in light-threaded tasks.

You would have to get it for very low. 2700X is the same or better and goes for $150 new.

oh shee didn't realize that was 8c16t, makes good use of old parts for someone I know with an x99 board heh

you right about the performance, but a platform change costs money, then possibly a new air cooler would be needed as well going from 2011v3 but the performance gain would be minimal it seems

unless he does productivity in which case it would be a lot more worth it which could be the case with a 2011v3 board

yeah I agree - like I said, the reason I got RID of my 6900k is that I built a 9900k rig for Christmas in 2018 and it destroyed my 6900k pretty much in every way, for less money. Fewer PCI-E lanes, and 'only' dual channel memory VS quad on the HEDT platforms but if you don't need either of those... 9900k is much much better.
