It doesn't but if he's already got an i7 he's not really losing anything.

It'd be more of a hassle to sell off the i7 then buy an i5.

My i7 is coming to the end of a glorious reign. It's been giving me too much problems lately and I'll just end up dumping it after I replace with the i5 760.

What kind of problems? Is it just a bad OCer / require to much v-core? TDP too high for your liking?

The i5 760 wins, but if you need hyper threading (which games don't care for), then get the Xeon X3440. The X3440 is a 4 core, 8 threaded CPU that's cheaper than the i7's available (brand new), and can OC just as well as any other CPU available for 1156 that's a quad core.

Well it's been through 3 different builds already and I noticed the back of the cpu has 2 black spots. It's taking too much vcore to get stable and I can't get it passed 3.8 without like 1.43 vcore.

Go for a 2500k and a P67 board. Your cooler should work fine. Or get the sub-par 760 on an aging socket.

Yep it's a dinosaur, just throw it out it's not even worth selling rolleyes.gif
There is such a thing as budget; he could sell the i7 for more than the i5, or bare min break even; and the 1st gen i5s are still more than fine for gaming.
