The good ol' i7-2600..... non K

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

 

I've just setup a "new" gaming pc for a buddy of mine. It's build like my 6+ year old setup. It still in working more than good enough;

     i7-2600     

     Asus p67 chipset 

     and a GTX 1080 B|

     2x 8gb ram 

     4k benQ cad monitor

The multiplier and the turbo mode on max and it been running at 3,9GHz multi core.

WHen it's not under syntactic load 1 core CAN run 4,2GHz  with the remaining 3 core at 3,8GHz.

It's still a slight bottleneck for the GTX 1080 but locking max fps at 90 keeps everything smooth.

 

Why we think this is still a good setup and why it's build as it is;

        The 2600 is without oc 'only' 35% slower than a 7700 and 30% with oc.

        2x 8g because 4x4 gives more load on the Cpu 

                *16Gb because of work, 12 should be enough

        4k monitors are harder on the GPU: high fps are hard on the Cpu while lots of pixels strain the Gpu

        The 2600 still power a lot the work stations over here. The single core boost to 3,9GHz is especialy

        good for the CAD/CAM software (dont know why doh).

        Bang for bugs and it's proven to be reliable and durable.

 

He's going to end up with an 2600 non k out of a workstations. THe mobo will be a MSI Z77A-GD65. 

Crucial Ballistix Sport 2 times 8GB 1600mHz (running at 1333). Scythe mugen 4 (I have the 3).

And an 4k Samsung U28E590. The only new parts are the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G

1,8tb hdd, el cheapo case, Corsair VS550.

 

Total price ~775, in Holland. 

 

Overclock result will have to wait till i have some more time, but i hope it will run the same as mine :P

 

When i asked for motherboard advice, regarding the new pc, i was told straight of the bad that

the non k couldn't run that high and that i was mistaken :dry: 

How is it possible that over 6 years after the release people still don't know how Intel's chipsets and K/non K processors work o.O

A simple google search gave hundreds half craptacular answers. I can's say Intel is any better, tryed to search on there site but

got no clear answer.

 

Let me know what you guys think,

People tend to want the latest greatest, and with a launch like the Coffee Lake launch with the 8400, 8600K and 8700K you're going to see more people go for that.

 

Although at 6 years, their days are numbered I do think for future titles. But for 2017 and earlier titles there's nothing wrong with a 2600(K). But also those motherboards are going to becoming even more rare too.

For high resolution/60fps gaming experience the i7 2600 is more than sufficient by all means.
