Core i5 750 to Core i5 2500 both stock...?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am currently running the sig rig at stock clocks due to having to move my pc into something resembling an armoire type desk setup (having our first child, losing game room) So temps will definitely be a concern. My question, since I am aiming for low temps, and still high FPS in games (all I use my machine for) would it be beneficial to move up to a i5 2500 or even an i5 2400? I looked at the Anandtech benchmark tool and the 2400 in SC2 is almost a good 15 fps faster than the i5 760...

I know this is OCN, but I live in Sacramento and it can get pretty warm here, plus having a quiet case and semi enclosed desk area would mean really high OC temps... Just curious if I should even think about this or just sit on what I have? I could probably sell my motherboard and processor for about ~$150 perhaps, so the out of pocket wouldn't be all that much.

If you want to spend the money on the upgrade, then why not?. There is no reason other then want to do it though, as the performance increase is pretty small. If you're willing to spend the money, then go for it.

Edit, couldn't you just keep the computer on the outside, on the floor for awhile? Kids do'nt start moving around for awhile, and even still just teach them not to touch. Keep the cables back out of the way.

It's mostly for aesthetic puropopses really. I am moving my gaming PC into our dining/living room, and I would prefer that it stay somewhat discrete. It's a possibility no doubt, but I would just rather keep it all contained of possible. If it doesn't look classy, then I have to move it into the master bedroom and that means no staying up late for allthatisman...
