i7 2600k or Xeon 5680?
 
Hello guys,

I am running a 2D transient simulation which contains 15000 cells. Since the mesh is small, increasing the processors does not help much and I want a fast CPU. I have been back and forth between a workstation with Xeon 5680 and i7 2600k which can be overclocked to 5 GHz. Does anyone have an idea which one is better? Thank you.

Just a similar comparison from a 2mio cells StarCD v4 calculation:

X 5570 (1 core = 148.6 sek , 2 cores = 88 sek)
i7-2600 (1 core = 89.5 sek , 2 cores = 62.8 sek)
