I would like to discuss and compare intel's cpu and chip sets, as i am wanting to build an intel computer, i will only be listing the flag ship processors know for each chipset

So we have the

Ivy Bridge Platform featuring : Chipset 7-Series “Panther Point”, Socket Lga 1155

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I53570K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
Haswell Platform Featuring : Chipset Lga LGA 1150

Intel Core i7-4790 Haswell Quad-Core 3.6GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74790 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

Intel Core i7-4770 Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

Haswell-E platform featuring : Chipset 8-Series “Lynx Point” , Socket Lga 2011-v3

Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E 8-Core 3.0GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75960X Desktop Processor

Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75930K Desktop Processor

Broadwell Platform Featuring : Chipset 9-Series “Wild Cat Point” Socket type Lga 1150

Skylark Platform Featuring : Chipset 100-Series “Sunrise Point Socket type Lga 1151

It appears to me that intel will probably not be contiuning the 2011-v3 socket featured on the current Haswell-e processors, this may change as more info is gathered for the Broadwell and Skylark K series processors, but it appears for now that they will be using the LGA 1151 socketed boards and Z170 chipset which is part of the new 100-Series chipset replacing the 9-Series “Wild Cat” PCH

So i would like to get some help at figuring out what to do here, it appears that the Hawell-e is the current flagship processor featuring 8 core and 6 core processors but lacking in the single core perfomance the previous iteration of Haswell cpu's . Should i invest in the Haswell-E and the 2011-v3 mother board, or should i wait to see what intel comes out with next. I'm really not sure beacause there isnt much information abou the new cpu's comming out this year, but i have also noticed that have a prety low TDP which could mean that they wont have as big of an over clock as the previous generation of intel cpu's. Ive also noticed that they are doing away withe the 22nm design and going with 14nm design for the Broadwell and Skylake processors.

Also i will be using a h220x cooling system made by Swiftech so compatibablity with be important here.

So you guru's out there can you help a guy understand what would be the best option at this point in time, should i pull the tigger on say the 5930k or should i wait tell the end of the year when we see broadwell and skylake.......?
