    Where are the 6900k OC results tabulated?
    Same core count, 14nm process, better memory controller and normal silicon lottery?

    It intrigues for sure, but i only paid $1300 for my 5960X new in September last year, to spend more then that and it not be an X chip is a bit of a slap in the face!

    Im only interested in X Chips, my Server is a 3960X/X79, and i have a QX9650 lying around, Going to do a extreme edition comparison from the last 10 years, and intend to get a 6950x at some point.

    but the 5960X has been my favourite chip to overclock hands down, better then anything S775/S1366/S2011. S1151 is good, still not as good as S2011-3. Thats just me!

    Going by reviews and a few threads on various forums. Yes there is the silicon lottery but there is also common sense. Are you going to drop $1600 to find out?

    Sorry just for context. I am of course talking from the perspective of a 5960X owner/overclocker.

    There's other metrics like power consumption and heat (yes, somewhat related), but the process shrink does improve this.

    My system is all built and ready to go after the EK block and 1080 arrive.

    Few photos here. The quality is pretty shit as the lighting is horrendous, but gives you a good idea of the build, cable management and water cooling. There is one big ugly tube running from the bottom rad to top rad as I don't have a block for 1080 yet. When I get a waterblock then I'll add it into the loop. I'm very happy with my cable management this time. I gutted the whole thing and arranged it as best as practical so you can barely see any cables from the front. Very easy with this case though, but it's still relatively neat at the back.

    Are they going to release a new Asus R5E soon? What's the main difference between a R5E and the deluxe as there the same price. Haven't owned a asus board in a long time

    Looks like the R5E comes with similar features (but flat M.2), has better sound and an external OC device. It also has a bunch of ROG shit that you will probably never use.

    There is the Rampage V Edition 10 coming out. Packed with even more useless ROG stuff you'll never use. But be prepared to pay over $1000AUD for it.

    5960X, 3.5G => 5G, 43% OC.
    any old x5650 in under 30 seconds, 2.66G => 4G, 50% OC, just saying ;)
    The best days of OC were 775/1366, locked bclk is just lame.

    That's just raw clock speed. The performance improvement is light years ahead on H-E

    That looks great! One thing, you could perhaps use some compressed air on that radiator block? I have an ED-500 for such purposes..

    I also have an old triple rad myself but am likely to just pick the 115i as I gave away the pump for a good cause and just feel like an easy solution. Phantek Enthoo Evolve ATX case..

    Performance increase is basically clock speed increase.

    Yeah I had to attack it with a vacuum which worked well and didn't bend any fins. I also wiped and vacuumed the case when it was empty.
    I searched for some compressed air but it's very hard to find here on a weekend. Those electric dusters seem quite expensive, but they look like they do a good job. I clean my system fairly regularly so dust isn't a huge issue.

    I think you'll find 5960x@5G is at best 43% better than 5960x@3.5G.

    New one is the version 10. Lots of goodies but might as well go a Strix because it seems to have most of it.

    I read a bunch of reviews on Broadwell-e and am now content with my 4930K and R4BE......... for a little while anyway. Might build a itx system for something to do in the meantime.:Paranoid:

    That's not what we're talking about here... You were comparing relative overclock on Nehalem and Haswell-E. Anyway... we're going off topic here...

    About my previous inquiry about the 6800K overclocking, seems quite doable, anyone who wants to try beyond 4.2GHz which I assume would be majority of the people here would be disappointed.

    I don't trust anything wccf says, usually it's just made up or rubbish. Toms Hardware reckon 4.4 is ok but gaming stress tests start failing at 4.5. The power draw for stock clocks cs 4.4 is ridiculous though, it's nearly double at 97 vs 174 watts. I'm going to need all my rads if I want to run a permanent overclock.

    I have my 6800K at 4GHz currently, 1.27v. 100% stable, having issue with over 4.2GHz as one core fails with 1.31v so far, and the heat is just too much for my Corsair H110 at that voltage, max load.

    We could have predicted all of this from here...

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/9482/intel-broadwell-pt2-overclocking-ipc/2

    ....

    IPC improvements from Haswell to Broadwell averaged 3.3%
    http://www.anandtech.com/show/9482/intel-broadwell-pt2-overclocking-ipc/3

    I guess we shouldn't have expected much more from Haswell EP to Broadwell EP...
