    Makes me regret building my 2011v3 5820k build 6 months ago

    • +1 vote

      But, dat 6 cores!

    • +2 votes

      Why? I'd rather have 6 cores than faster cores, more PCIE lanes, and when those Xeon's drop in price you can pick em up nice and cheap.

      It really depends what you use it for - I'm still rocking a 5650 Xeon on the X58 platform, and I'm having not many issues pushing most games at 3440x1440/4k with a 980TI.

      •  

        I don't need a Xeon I have a 5820k it's a beast best bang for buck cpu I only paid $480 for it too same price as the 4790k at the time still proud I haggled that price!

        •  

          Im not saying you do now, but in 3-4 years time when they're cheap, theyre a good upgrade. I went from a I7 930 (I guess it was the equivalent of a 5830K at the time) to a Xeon last year.

          Either way, don't be jealous of the consumer platform :P

        •  

          @Wally Simmonds: I've always wanted a Xeon maybe one day but If I'm going to upgrade it won't be for 5 years I have a 980ti, I'm running everything at stock atm I had my 5820k pumping at 3.8ghz but took it back to stock with a 980ti overclocking at this stage is a waste imo!

          i have a 4770k is that still good? ive not researched CPUs for ages

          Yes.

      •  

        Just being a noob here. What is the advantage of Xeon?

        •  

          Bunc of things like extra cache, extra cores etc…usually very expensive at time of release.

          However, they can be very good value second hand when they get to EOL in Datacenters. For example, I got my Xeon 5650 (which is a bit old now, admittedly) for $75US off ebay.

          Recently people have been getting E-2670's (including myself) for $70US. These are 32nm chips which aren't exactly new either, but they'll fit in a Socket 2011/X79 motherboard (not Haswell-E, which is X99). The good thing about these chips is theyre 8 core, which gives you 16 threads…I personally have ordered 2 of these and a dual CPU board, which will give me 32 threads all up. Do I need it? Hell no, but it seemed a bit more interesting than just going to Skylake.

        •  

          @Wally Simmonds: I am interested to build one, which dual cpu board should I buy for dual xeon E2670?

        •  

          @lnq:

          Take a look at the thread over on overclockers
          http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1188021

          Unfortunately, due to the cheap supply of CPU's, the motherboards have gone up significantly in price. You can pick them up from Newegg as well, but looking now its pretty slim pickings.

        •  

          @Wally Simmonds: Where are you purchasing the CPUs from? Because I'm not seeing them for cheaper than $200

        • +1 vote

          @Wally Simmonds: Yeah, I found it after reading the thread a bit more ;)

          Another option (which I have taken before) is the Xeon E3-12xx. Personally bought a E3-1220 + mobo + 16GB for $250 delivered. Has the advantage of not requiring any special heatsinks or case (more or less desktop sized). Not as much in the way of 'holy Sh!T thats awesome though' ;)

        •  

          @CyberGenesys: Yeah, main reason I got mine was for the dimm slots - I need to run lots of vm's, and I had 128GB of ECC, so it worked for me.

        •  

          @Wally Simmonds: Is the Supermicro Pedestal case that Kogan list suitable for the dual Xeon size mobo?

          https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/supermicro-pedestal-chassis-sup...

          It seems like a good deal for $300 including a 900W Gold power supply. It is not my intention to go down the dual xeon route at this point, but I need a case and PSU anyway, so may as well have one that gives the option in future.

        • +2 votes

          @CyberGenesys:
          I'm always a bit dubious about included psu's. You want a case that can take a SSI EEB board if you wanted a dual cpu board. Realistically, unless you're specifically going to go down the dual cpu route, I'd just go with a larger ATX and see if you can sniff out a cheap X79/single CPU board when the hype dies down.

          Since I have a dual board coming, I'm looking at a Fractal XL or one of the Phantek options which are under 200. Still be looking for at least 200 for a PSU that'd be good enough I suspect, but cases/psu's are things that last for years, and particularly with the case I'd rather get that locally. Screw shipping a case that large back to Kogan…

    Tempted to get the 6600K for my new rig.

    But I've held back from buying things from Kogan until now, put off by the fact it's coming from HK. Is that silly of me? Do things arrive in a decent amount of time/safely from Kogan's HK warehouse?

    Would like to know.

      I received my 6600k from Kogan within a week. Paid $303 so this is an even better deal.

      •  

        And it was their HK stock, not Aussie stock? If so, that's very fast indeed.

          Pretty sure it came from a Sydney warehouse? I thought it was extremely quick for Kogan anyway hahaha

          @slimdealin: Well, thanks for your input. :P Seriously considering it.

        • +2 votes

          @Selenium:
          Definitely worth the price, you won't be disappointed. Mine is running @ 4.5ghz as the everyday overclock. Dunno how much it has left in it but it is 100% rock solid so don't really want to mess with it. Gaming it won't crack 60 degrees, under Intel XTU it got to 68 degrees, but XTU works CPU pretty hard. Get a decent cooler (no stock cooler for 'k' chips) and have some fun!

          P.s been waiting 10 days for an iPhone from Kogan, hasn't even been marked as despatched yet. Worth the discount though!

        •  

          @slimdealin: Well yeah, it ain't the price I'm worried about! It's about getting it here safely. :P

          But yeah, sounds like it'd suit my needs just fine. And gives me another pretty box to look at while continuing to wait for a video card deal that tickles me just right.

        •  

          @Selenium:
          Make sure you use PayPal, no issues if it doesn't show up then. As for GPU, what res are you gaming on? 1080p = GTX 950 or 960, 1440p = GTX 970 etc.

        •  

          @slimdealin: I'll be gaming at 1080p, but I'm going for a 970. Just waiting on Pascal to come out so we can get some refreshed prices going.

          And yeah, that's true. I'll use Paypal.

          EDIT: Took the plunge.

        •  

          @slimdealin: GTX970 will max almost anything at 1080p, I have one at 1440p right now and definitely feeling it's time to upgrade to a GTX980

          I bought a phone from Kogan last week (Thursday), arrived this week on Monday - sent via Toll Global Express from HK.

          Was pretty happy with shipping.

          @klownz: Excellent. Didn't realise they used Toll.

          @Agret: Not going to wait for Pascal?

        •  

          @jogga: Well I haven't bought it because I can't justify it at this point :P I will wait and see, but GTX970 does struggle at 1440p is all i'm trying to say. You quite often get dips to the mid 40-50's and seeing as how I just recently bought a 144hz panel it's not great having less than half the refresh rate at times.

    • +2 votes

      Bought a 4790K and a GTX 970 from Kogan that came from HK mid last year. Took about 2 weeks, everything arrived nice and intact and working fine to this day.

  •  

    That is very cheap for the 6600k

  •  

    I don't know if this is worth it for me. I'm running an FX8320 @4.6Ghz easily and with watercooling I think it would breeze past 5ghz. I don't think the 6600K would offer me much improvement at all, at least with gaming benchmarks and Direct X 12 around the corner the performance is going to be similar (except for a couple of woefully optimised titles like GTA V). It cost me $150 3 years ago. Might just wait to see if AMD manages to pull a rabbit out of the hat later this year.

    • +1 vote

      You would see a minor increase due to AMD lagging behind in single threaded performance and having weak cores. Probably not worth the ~$1000 it would cost to upgrade.

    •  

      I was actually quite surprised that in certain games I got a bit of a bump in frames from my 8320 to my i7 930 (which is pretty old now, too). For the most part it would keep up, but unfortunately AMD chips really are not doing that well unless the game takes advantage of multithreading heavily.

      I'm waiting for Xen as well, but I'm certainly not holding my breath!

    • +2 votes

      You can't just compare on clockspeed. AMD chips perform very poorly compared to Intel, they are just good for budget builds.

      •  

        Xen might change things somewhat…

        TDP seems to be improving.

      •  

        I'm not looking at GHZ at all, just raw performance. You have 8 cores vs 4 so even if AMD are slower than the i7 or I5 there are double the amount of cores. Going forwards every game will support Direct X12 which balances the load evenly across all the available cores. So apart from a handful of single threaded games I can't see why it would be worth spending $1000 to upgrade. 12 months ago it may have been worth it, but now I'm not convinced. I'll see what Zen delivers…

    They posted the first couple from their aussie warehouses it sounds like to clear stock, but mine shows that its coming from china. I don't specifically know whether it will be better or worse quality based on regional stock but i would definitely prefer aussie or american stock

    • +2 votes

      They're all the same worldwide, dude. Just warranty and the warranty process differs (assuming these aren't Aussie stock to begin with).

      • -2 votes

        Oh okay, and yeah that was one of my main worries was with how the warranty process would apply to this.

        There are many reports of other pc hardware manufacturers with god awful asian stock so i'm not 100% convinced what you claim is 100% true. For example it is a fact that chinese companies ship better products that they make as exports and the lesser quality stuff is sold domestically. If we assume that any part of the intel construction process is in china then i cant be sure there are not quality concession that they may have made to save money or watever.

        Anyway, good price. If it works as it should when it arrives then i snagged a bargain. Thanks! (and if it dies on me F*** U)

        P.S. just kidding :)

    •  

      Intel tries its hardest to eliminate variations in its factories. No Intel "regional stock" should be better or worse than any other in the world. See Copy Exactly!

  •  

    I don't know much about Kogan's business structure but from what me and members of my family have bought from them it seems like although the stock is 'brand new' it always has quality issues of somekind and the warranty isnt as fast or easily processed as other retailers. My grandmothers s6 mini for example came without an sd card inside, so it was a smart phone with only 2gb of onboard (literally in the phone's motherboard) memory when every other company had it at the very least with a 8gb card with the option of going up to 64gb. The charger was also kogan branded and cheap and horrible, it made god awfully loud static noise etc.

    I went for it for the price, but probably not ever buying from Kogan again.

  •  

    These seem like they aren't Au warranty so instead of 3 years you get 1 year Kogan Warranty.

      Kogan is pretty reknown for delivering products that honestly feel lower quality.

      My grandmother's s6 mini for example arrived in a brown cardboard box labelled kogan and had a horrible cheap whiny after market kogan charger and matching usb cable which died after a couple of weeks. The phone itself worked fine but all in all it didn't feel like i bought a $400 phone. Kind of felt like i bought an used product kind of feeling with the repackaging etc.

      Oh and it didn't have a preinstalled 16gb sd card like all the other retailers offered, so factoring this in i don't think we saved all too much so idk O_o…

      Quality of the item seems? okay? but its still kinda dodgey.

      The guy above that said can't fake an intel box, i'm not even sure it'll arrive in an intel box O_o (based on the past experiences with kogan. I mean our phones didn't arrive in Samsung boxes

    Good deal but all these were cheaper from Kogan during the eBay promotion.

    Dang man, I bought a 6700k for $450 last month…

    :( I just bought two i7-6700 this morning as part of the ebay 20% off sale. Would have saved $120 by waiting 8 hours.

    Edit: I didn't even look at Kogan during the eBay deal as I am told postage takes ages and I need it fast.

          not going to overclock? (noob question)

        •  

          @Micoa:

          If you bought the K variant I assume that you'd be interested in overclocking - maybe go for one of the Z170 models? From there, you need to decide on factors like how many (and type of) USB 3 ports you need, how many sata ports, dual graphics capabilities, compatible ram speed, onboard audio amp etc etc…
