    Default Haswell or Broadwell

    I've been patiently waiting for the bank balance to go up and reviews on the Broadwell i7-5775c before deciding between that or the Haswell i7-4790k to put on my Asus Maximus VII Formular, (new Build). The new graphics is not important as I have dual dedicated cards, I don't play games, most of what I use my PC for is music, listening, watching and creating. but I do like to tinker so I will defiantly be over-clocking, water cooling and having as much fun as possible. Any friendly advice would be very welcome. Thanks

    Honestly, I'd go with the 4790K. The Broadwells are an optical shrink with some graphics upgrades (as you pointed out), and will (basically) offer some TDP improvements. If you can't wait for Skylake (later this fall), I'd stick with Haswell.

    There just is no compelling reason (to me) to jump on Broadwell when Skylake is so close. Looking at this and this (and keeping in mind that I'm no Overclocking Guru), I'd say the 5775C is a poor cousin to the 4790K and a bit more expensive as well.

    In short, Lower Base Clocks, Lower Turbo Clocks, Lower L3 Cache, with the only benefits being lower TDP, support for DDR3L (Low Voltage DDR3) and newer graphics (albeit running slower than on a 4790K and which you aren't planning on using!).

    So, with regards to the i7-5775C, and to misquote RealNeil from another Thread: "I don't like it."

    I agree with Scott (Gu3), the only advantage of 5775c compared to 4790k, is its low TDP. 4790k is most powerful, better base/turbo clock (4.0GHz / 4.4GHz), better overclocker...
    Check this link to see complete comparison between this two CPUs.
    My advice: Stick with i7 4790k.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Skylake is supposed to have better overclocking potential, PCIe 3.0 lane upgrade in the new z170 chipset for storage devices and is coming in august. I'd go skylake and just wait a couple months unless it's because you already have a board. Then I'd agree with 4790k.

    I think I'm inclined to go along with your thoughts, the Broadwell review results were not very encouraging and yes I would love to wait for Skylake but the MB does n't support it. I don't think the missus will let me get away with getting another mother board especially having not even taken this one out of the box. Thanks for the input.

    Good decision, you can use your MB with 4790K and wait for Skylake to be proven. Don't worry you'll certainly have more than a year to decide.
