    6700k is technically faster but the 5820 can address more memory by double.
    We have been debating on both but for us memory would make things faster for us over sheer speed.

    From my testings, a fast high quantity of ram is better than a fast processor or video card in current design software other than 3d programs.

    Do you run a lot of different things at once. Then the 5820 if you run less process you can probably go with the 6700. Either is a good choice. 5820 will handle multiple things faster. Is the whole computer going to be liquid cooled or only the hard drive?
