Because it's an S version it has a lower power consumption and clockspeed to match. Which makes it as good as the I5 in single threaded applicationslike gaming.

If you want to render I'd keep the I7 because the added threads will help with that. Though for gaming alone you won't notice a difference between the two.

The i7 4790s has an all core turbo of 3.7 2 cores and 3.6 on the other 2. The i5 4690 has an all core turbo of 3.7. Therefore, the 4790s is decidedly better.

I got an i5 4690 and an i7 4790s. I'll keep one and sell the other, which one should I keep? Most of times I use my pc for gaming and something to render some videos. I know that the i7 has hyperthreading but it is a S version. Will I lose performance over the i5?

The i7 is the better CPU. A 4c/4t CPU is basically obsolete now unless you stick to older games without multi core optimizations, such as CS:GO, Dota 2 and even Fortnite to a degree.

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
