    Posted: 14 Jun 2018 at 12:31am
I'm considering buying a new Aventum 3 workstation with these components:

* ASUS X99 RAMPAGE V EDITION 10
* H20: HydroLux PRO: Exotic Custom Cooling System / Copper tubing
* CPU Boost=Stage 1: Overclock CPU - Up to 4.4GHz

I'm trying to decide between the Core i7 6850K (6-core 3.6GHz) and 6900K (8-core 3.2GHz). I do a lot of data analysis where individual CPU speed is important. 6 cores would suffice if I can get better speed with the 6850. But if the resulting 6900 overclock speed would be close to that of the 6850, then having the those 2 additional cores could be useful to me.

If anyone happens to have a feel for how the 6850K and 6900K will overclock with the above configuration I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

I've seen where the 6850k will oc a tad higher than the 6900k (maybe up to 4.5 GHz), but these procs are 2 years old, and I don't see where DS offers them in the configurator.

I might suggest you look at the i7 8086k (6 core) that Turbos to 5GHz, but I'm confused where you saw the Broadwells offered, and I'm a little out of my depth anyway. Sorry.

i would go with a Ryzen 7 2700X over both.  similar performance for insanely cheaper price.
