CPU's for lga 2011

A Core i7-6800K should be fine, I'm not entirely sure what the -3 means either

Recommended Posts

So I have a motherboard with an lga 2011-3 socket on it. What would be a good cpu for gaming that I could use with it? (No need for high core count, but high core clock is preferable).  Budget is anything reasonable (you know, 1000$ i9's are not reasonable). Also, what does the 3 at the end of 2011-3 mean? 

 

Thanks.

LGA2011 is X99, right? I know @Damascus has been doing some X99 stuff, he may be able to help. 


Maxwell is still awesome, and so is X58. If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

2011 v3 is X99 and equivalent xeons

2011 is X79 

 

@Epiclol86 a 6850k, 6800k or 5820k would be great

2011-3 I think means that it's the third generation as the first two generations were on the original 2011 socket. It differentiates the older Sandy and Ivy E DDR3 platform from the Haswell and Broadwell E DDR4 platform.

 

That said, the 6800K with a nice overclock would probably be the "cheapest" solution.
