Default Best CPU for Edius

I have a older system built with a Rampage V Edition 10 mother board, and a Boxed Intel® Core™ i7-6950X Processor Extreme Edition CPU.
The CPU failed a few years ago and was replace by intel but seems to have failed again. Can anyone recommend a new CPU to replace this old dog?
It was a work horse. I need to edit several 4K streams most of the time so I'm looking for power! Thanks

I would consider a Core i7-6850K. It has fewer cores (6 vs. 10) but higher clockspeeds than your failed i7-6950X, and given that Edius isn't capable of pegging all the cores at 100% utilization most of the time, you'll probably get somewhat better performance from it. The processor also costs less than half of what the old processor did.

That is a cost effective viable option. It's half the price of a used 6950x. The 6950x can still outdo some of the newer chips just because of it's cache(25MB).
I doubt the OP will see anywhere near the same performance with only 15MB of cache on board the 6850x. The 6950x will overclock to 4.5GHz on water. That is also using Affinity settings to assign individual core speeds.

I see excellent core use (95%-100%) on my 4790k when using 4K files(avc based) on Edius 9. The OP mentioned using 4K files. Core usage depends on the the type of codec being used. Edius 9.52 utilizes cores better than Edius 8.5x.

Thanks for that recommendation. I need to consider this option to get me going until I have more time to consider all options. I just jumped into my wife's office where my even older edius 8 workstation sits. It has a i7 3930 3.20HHz that I haven't used in quite some time. Moved my project drive there and finished up a quick client revision that was due. Blessings I still that as a backup.

Thanks Jerry - Most of my projects are using sony native files from FS5 or maybe 6300 b roll. This current build < you had help with some good advice on it > was 4 years ago and I've been very happy with it. The CPU failed once already and Intel replaced it under warranty, so I'm thinking of looking at other options, but may just opt for the 6850x to get me going for now.
