Has anyone built a computer with the Intel Core i7-2600K?
Has anyone built a computer with the Intel Core i7-2600K? (especially OC'd) How does it compare performance wise in SolidWorks? For comparison purposes download the attached file, rebuild, and then post rebuild time. (tools>feature statistics)
For SolidWorks performance the i7-2600K is the best out there. Especially if you plan on overclocking. You can easily achieve clock speeds of 4.5GHz and even 5.0+GHz if you invest in some better cooling and know what you are doing. SolidWorks for the most part is still a very single threaded application meaning you want the fastest possible clock speed to get the best performance. If you check out SolidWorks benchmark tests all the top scores are from i7-2600K and i5-2500K http://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/shareyourscore.htm
I repeated my answer from other Q&A:
"So here are link to Benchmark about computers/laptops with SolidWorks.
Please check these.
There is a Benchmark results table. It also contains the contents of various computers
