So i have got too options for my build all are used
i3 9100f,h310,8gb cl12 2666

i7 2600k,thermaltake nic c4(better than 212 evo),z77 and i already have the ram

The i3 build would be 25$ more, i have done some researches and i can overclock this 2600k to 4.7 ghz with this cooler

which i found 2600k 4.7 ghz is better than 9100f so should i go with it? main purpose is gaming tho

Cinebench r15 results for 2600k 4.7 ghz (multi core/single core)

789/170

Looks like the 2600k outperforms the i3 in multicore but i3 outperform in single core

and i think the 4 more threads is what makes the 2600k a better choice than i3 because games started to utilize more cores and threads

Test it a few more times and compare them. Test results can vary just by the nature of testing.

I'm curious if a 4.7Ghz clock on these starts hitting close to (or beats) the 9100f's single thread because thats a solid boost and I've got 2x 2600k and one 3770k that I haven't pushed at all yet.

they are pretty close in single core
i saw someone that gets 178 on single core while my i7 gets 170

so pretty close, but the i7 beats it by 150 in multicore
