5600 or 5600X?

Just a quick question, I’m building a PC for a mate, should i go for the 5600X 199 € (~210.06 $) or the 5600 for 194 € (~204.78 $)? Normally I would just go for the 5600 but they are just so similar in price...

The X model has a higher clock speed. For 5 bucks extra, might as well go for the higher clocked X model.

Gamer's nexus tests showed that the performance is near identical. 

as you can see, you're paying extra for a letter. It's not going to provide a different experience.

 

I'd sooner spend 5€ on lunch

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Performance will be identical, though with the 5600X, odds are you won't have to do a BIOS update to get it working while you likely would with the non-X. I'd flip a coin, they're both fine CPUs. It's basically whether you want to deal with BIOS flashback or get $5 for something else.

For 5 bucks? It would bother me if I didn’t get the X lol.. but that could just be me.
