Looking forward to seeing this!

I'm quite tempted to jump on this, though I'd have to go the 5820K route, really not keen on spending 250 on RAM either lol

Oh the MSI Z87M I bought from you sometime ago is working great btw

I'm getting it.

When you get set up, please post the Aida64 cache and memory benchmark results. I am interested to see the difference in DDR3 and DDR4. I'll post my DDR3 results now.

Planning on upgrading to this platform myself, feeling cpu limited in strategy games. The solder tim should make overclocking much easier than recent releases i hope. I need to decide whether to jump to watercooling, or stay on air as ive always done. I also want the sata 3 for a newer ssd upgrade, still on vertex 1.

But what I'm waiting for is the 880/980 gtx release and grabbing 2 of those, waited longer than I should have to upgrade the video cards, I've been vram bottlenecked so badly. I'm not sure if id be better off buying the rest of it now or waiting for the late Sept nvidia release though.

Will X99 be compatible with Skylake do you think? Skylake E probably won't be around for 3 years, I imagine Broadwell E will be compatible with X99 but perhaps not Skylake!?

Imo the only fair comparison would be if he used dual channel, in quad it will be 58gb/s for sure.

Yeah from what's been seen so far the frequency of the DDR4 makes almost no difference to performance across the board, it's all in the timings.

I know DDR4 has higher bandwith. I'm just interested in a comparison between the 2.

Oh yeah broadwell e, my mistake. Skylake probably be a new socket.

I meant hold out for broadwell-e. By then they would have refined CPUs/DDR4

Me too, that's why I suggested that he should test it only in dual channel to really see the diff. between DDR3 vs DDR4


I get this @ 2400mhz CL10, one older screen was running 4.6ghz here..

I'm curious to see your temps on the Noctua


I will board the train towards the end of this year, december probably. But god, I can't wait!
Right now I'm opting to get the 5930K, the Asus X99 Deluxe (or if there's problems with their sockets the MSI X99 Gaming due to it's streaming engine), although I'm not sure about the RAM (go for 32 or just 16GB to get double sided modules).

Ordered a 5820K, 5930k not worth the extra $200 just for extra lanes.

Still waiting on a mobo, want to get Asus X99-A, It has the same VRM circuitry as the Rampage Extreme but doesnt have all the useless features as the deluxe, ie wifi, crystal clear audio, etc plus it has 2x PCIe 1x slots which i need for my phoebus and I210 network card.

I'm having a friend pick up a 5820k from Microcenter ($300), but I can't decide on a motherboard. Wanted an ASUS board but the three out right now don't feel too decent at the prices they are commanding. Plus the Deluxe has an abnormally high idle power usage (+25W) on Hilbert's review which makes me a little worried if it isn't a BIOS or configuration issue as this'll be a workstation that will be on most of the time. I might lean on a cheap MSI board since there should be a X99 refresh coming out in a year or more with Broadwell-E, by then there should be a much better selection, and hopefully some good MATX boards to switch to later.

He probably didnt bother to disable all those extra useless features for most people. X99-A will likely be $300~

More info on ASUS sockets

Quote:
Patent-pending OC Socket
Drive CPU and DDR4 performance beyond the limits!

Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customized UEFI, this exclusive feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.
