Looking for new Motherboard/Processor

I currently have a i7-5820k Processor with an ASRock x99 Extreme4.

I tried to do some overclocking the other week, found out my board isn't too good for that, and I'm pretty sure I messed up the board. I went through it with my brother trying to boot into my system for 2 hours, only finding out that I have to manually boot every time.

 

Although, I'm not here for IT help with the motherboard, I'm actually looking to upgrade my CPU and my MOBO to something better.

Here is what I do in my day-to-day:

 - I run a 2080ti to play games on 4k ultra settings. (Battlefield V was CPU bottlenecked sitting at 45 FPS in 1080, 1440p, or 4k)

 - I host Modded Minecraft Servers (Don't hate) 24/7. Currently running 4 servers, each using max 7 gigs of RAM. Currently uses 10-20% CPU when starting each server.

 - I stream in 1080p to twitch using the NVENC in the 2080ti

 

With those 3 things in mind,I am also running 8 8GB sticks (64GB total) of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666 RAM which is an issue. Most processors on the top of the line nowadays are compatible with mobos only having 4 RAM slots, and only dual-channel memory. I've been thinking about the possibilities of keeping 64 gigs of ram, swapping to a new board with 4 RAM slots, but having 16 GB sticks instead. What is your guys' thoughts on that as well.

 

My brother recommended I wait a few months until a new processor comes out with mobos having 8 RAM slots so I can just quick swap over.

 

So to wrap it all up, I would like a Processor Recommendation including those that say "wait a few months to see what comes out"

 

Thanks,

~cj

If you're not looking for IT help then I guess I won't bother asking what happened... That said, the 5820K needs overclocking to really shine in gaming.

 

What country do you live in? What are you looking to spend? Most people would probably recommend Threadripper, but I would also consider waiting for Zen 2 to come out (assuming your computer is still usable). Early reports say that this will feature a maximum of 16 cores on the mainstream platform, and I can only imagine what will come with threadripper. Now, if you need lots of PCIe lanes, you should stick with HEDT, because mainstream typically has 16-20 lanes. Expected release date is Q2 2019.

Prefacing the next paragraph with: My 5820k has been clocked at 4GHz for the past 3 years working flawlessly, until I decided to boost it, and accidentally fucked it up as you can read in the next paragraph.

I tried overclocking my CPU to 4.5GHz which worked flawlessly. I then tried to mess around with the RAM overclocking and accidentally overclocked the CPU to 4.7GHz, which never posted and I had to clear CMOS. In that happening, the motherboard must have messed up in some way to cause my system not to boot into windows anymore, and I have to boot into the Windows Boot Manager manually now.

 

Now to answer questions:

I live in the USA

Looking to spend not too much, but not entirely limited as this system will be used for a few good years.

I haven't heard much about AMD, but I have seen a few comments here and there about if it's amazing as they say it is, it will be the best processor for the price on the market.

I know hardware, but only to an extent so I don't know exactly what a PCIe lane means and how many I need. (My parts list is as listed)

Q2 2019 seems like it could be a little while to wait, I put away around $200/month for savings so I can make purchases as such, so by then I'll have around $600 or so saved up to make a purchase. (I am willing to spend more than I have saved, but with AMD that probably won't be an issue)

 

I really want to say I'm not an "Intel fanboy" but I feel I am deep down and will only purchase AMD if it's definitely the right move (Which people are saying it might be)

 

EDIT: My PC does work, except the CPU is now clocked at 3.5GHz...

That is correct. It still might be even if you don't want to wait.

I think it depends mostly on what you can get when selling your 5820K and RAM. 64GB of RAM should bring in some cash but you might not be able to sell it all together. As you can see, 64GB is quite a bit of money.

Now, that pcpartpicker thingy-ma-bob is really cool.

 

I really like the suggestions given, except I heard Threadripper isn't really meant for gaming, which technically the machine does more servers than gaming, but still.

 

Now do you suggest waiting or do you suggest heading out shopping after the holidays to see what I could get?

I definitely think I could get at least $100, maybe even $150 from the processor, sadly that's only what it's worth on ebay right now. The RAM should definitely bring in $400-$500 easily I feel like, even though RAM prices are dropping. The motherboard... well, I accidentally sent it to the farm up north.

Stuff like CPUs and motherboards don't tend to go on sale during the holidays, but if you do decide to go with current stuff, I'd try to look for deals during the holidays. If you don't then I would more seriously consider waiting (depending on how much you want to deal with your current problems (which might be fixable if you create a thread in troubleshooting or Operating Systems (it seems weird an overclock would cause windows problems))). That said, you can still build now and upgrade to a higher core count Zen 2 CPU later if you decide you really need more performance, but if a 5820K was good for your needs, than an R7 2700 should only be better.

I think it was a mobo problem, not a windows problem. Well, currently the 5820k bottlenecks in Battlefield V with my 2080ti which is pretty annoying not being able to play the game at quality FPS. So would the R7 2700 be enough or should I go for a better processor?

4K pretty much mitigates all performance differences between Intel and AMD, so it's whatever you want to buy really.

I see, so do you recommend your the Threadripper 1920X list or the R7 2700?

Depends if you think you need the extra cores. I think you'd be fine with the 2700 though, and you can upgrade to up to 16 cores once Zen 2 comes out.

Alrighty, I'll definitely start looking into it! Thanks for the help mate.
