I am more leaning towards the new A6 from AMD, which is an octocore with 5ghz per core not overclocked, so the worlds first 5ghz core.

Should work with the new Sabretooth R3 Motherboard for PCI-e 3.0 on an AMD board.

It is missing some instruction sets that Intel CPUs have, but they are not needed for gaming and more for multimedia production etc.

The AMD is out of the question for me I know I'm mostly prejudice about it but it doesnt help me either..

Btw do you know if 4x4gb quad channel ram will work faster on dual channel MB or there isn't any difference betwenn 2x8 dual channel ram?

Quad-channel ram will run slower on a Dual-channel board, but the performance loss isn't going to be anything more than 2 or 3%. Quad-channel is really just a marketing gimmick; there's no significant difference.

What about 4x4 both dual?

thank you @Jackbig I appreciate it.
And about the h80&90 it's a bit steep for my needs, I wont be doing any oc any time soon and I know the K series is well suited for oc, nevertheless if and when I'll decide to do oc I'll purchase a cooling solution much more fitting.
