i7 2700K vs i7 920

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I currently have a i7 920 Asus P6X58D Premium overclocked to 4GHz and looking at upgrading my system as I need a motherboard with true sata 3 support, more USB 3, and a few other reasons.
Would going to a i7 2700K & Asus Maximus IV Extreme 2 be a difference in performance? My understanding is you can get it over 5GHz with the right cooling. I'd just want to get the best I can with a H100 stock.

Yes. The 2700k would by every single means blast the 920 out of the water. It will be noticeably faster.

You could also OC it to 4.5 ghz with little to no effort at all. Just change the multiplier.

edit: horrible grammar this morning..

I went from a 920 @ 3.8 to a 2600k @ 4.7 and a maximus gene-z in all honesty i didnt notice any real world performance difference if anything my 920 seemed more "snappy". I would save my money for IB hopefully it adds some improvements

I guess I forgot to address the 5.0 ghz.

I wouldn't. Reasoning... 5.0 ghz is more of a trophy or a, HEY LOOK AT ME. You could do it, but over a long period of time, I would get scared. You could easily get 4.8 ghz stable. Your 4.8 ghz CPU will undoubtedly outlive your rig.

I run a 930 on the Asus P6x58d-e of the board, (And Sata 3 and the close card spacings) are the reason I'm going to upgrade.
Run my SSD and Sata 3 Mech drive off the Intel ports because of Sata 3 problems
on these boards.
Marvel controller issues well documented.


I run 4.51 with my 930 HT on, But with good cooling, And No apps or games give me any trouble as to CPU capable.
Good for another 6 months or longer.
Kepler or 7970 going in Very soon though.

I'd wait for IVY to iron itself out before an upgrade.
Probably won't get the top Ivy chip but will pick one thats worth the upgrade.
Pci-e 3.0 being one of the reasons also.

Later;)

Yes, we have the same board and the sata 3 on this board blows. My main reason is because I want a real sata 3 controller as I want to pick up a few more SSD drives.

Unless you are doing encoding or any serious cpu based apps you won't notice a difference. A 4.0ghz 920 is still considered a very fast cpu.

You won't notice a difference. The 2700K will be slightly faster but not enough to say wow.

pretty much to the above posters. The only time you will notice a major difference in speed is if you do a lot of encoding or benchmarking. But real world, there's really not much (I think I could say there's nothing) out there that will fully tax a 920, especially running @ 4ghz. But it sounds like you got money to burn, not many people just want to "pick up a few more SSDs"...so to answer your question, there will definitely be a potential performance upgrade. Will you notice a real-world difference that will blow you away? no.

My goal is to go all SSD, which means I have to pick u p 2-3 more of them but it is kind of pointless on this motherboard since it doesn't have real Sata 3 performance and I am using the Intel Sata II for reliability and trim support. That gives me about half the throughput possible with these drives though. It's kind of a sucky time to upgrade, but I have an RMA replacement of my motherboard on my desk and if I am going to tear everything apart to replace it, I rather upgrade at the same time and solve my sata 3 problem in the process.

Sounds like it isn't worth it, but hate to be running 4 550MB/s drives only to have them at 270MB/s. I am extremely demanding on hard disks, and I have very little patience waiting on a computer so I always buy the fastest drives around. CPU I lag behind, even though I am a hard core gamer, it rarely is a bottleneck.

How far out are the next line of chips?

I've been moving more and more off my machine, I used to run a few VMware sessions, but now I have a dedicated ESXI box so I don't need them on my machine anymore.
