I'm right with you this afternoon. I have a terrible 3770K and there's a local deal for a 3820/X79 combo that is about $10 less than my Z77 setup.

But the 3820 is inferior to the 3770K in almost all benchmarks. The discount is the only reason for me to consider the 3820, so if you have the extra ~$250 for 2011 and you're thinking about 3930K's and IB-E's then go for 2011.

HMMM damn it lol I guess you may of been unlucky with your 3770k, To be honest I don't really want to spend that much extra and I hear IB-E won't be socket 2011 so I guess the 3930/60 will be the last in that socket? which makes going 2011 an unwise choice.

Guess I'll keep looking.

I ended up with a 3570K + Gigabyte Z77x-UD3H for $310 (MicroCenter). It's doing a stable 4.5GHz w/ 1.23v on stock cooling. lachen.gif

This chip might whoop a 3820 (hyper-threading notwithstanding).

Well as you can see by my sig I made the jump. TBH I don't see what the fuss is about with heat. I used intel image burn 5 times in a row and never went above 79 on 1 core less on the others. I'm running a stable 4.5GHz overclock and see no issues. Done a few cinebench and other marks will upload all the details when I have time at home.

All in all happy I made the jump

Actually I spoke too soon about that clock, cause it crashed after four hours. (It took 1.26v)

If you don't have a great chip, the heat will cause more problems than you think. These can't go much past 1.30v on air (or CLC) even if 80C and over is perfectly safe---the temps can easily cause instability when finding your maximum clocks, to that point where you need to bump voltage but more voltage just means too much heat and your test errors.

I guess it is all about how lucky you are with the chip lottery. I know I've only had mine since friday so it is too early to tell yet. All I can say for sure is I've had no issues running it 24/7

4.5 @ 1.22 Vcore and it seems happy enough Of course I think the CLC is helping with that smile.gif
