I have an asus p9x79 pro with i7 3930k cpu. Got a new motherboard of a friend who is asus z170 pro gaming with i5 6600k cpu. which do you think I should use?
 
It will really depend on what you are using it for. For applications that are CPU heavy, the 3930k may be a little better. But for applications that are more single threaded, the 6600k will be better.

For gaming, most like fast single threads, so the 6600k would have an advantage, but there are games that can use more than the 6600k can give, such as BFV.

Don't even think about downgrading to the i5! It only has 4 threads which already can bottleneck as hell nowadays. If you want more performance just oc your 3930k a bit.
