CPU's for lga 2011

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

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

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. 


HMU if you need benchmarks on a 1050, 1050 Ti, 980 Ti, or 1080. Planning on getting more GPUs in the future too... 😉 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.
