post #3901 of 6048
Although this thread isn't about cpu's, I highly doubt a gtx685 or 7xx will bottleneck an overclocked i5 2500k.

My reasoning is that ivy bridge is the 'tick' and the 'tock' won't arrive until after above mentioned gfx cards most likely. However my particular i5 2500k might die at any time i'm running it at almost 1.4v constantly.

Nope. SB/SB-E recently have beta drivers for GEN3 (3.0)

Since the PCIe controller are in-built to the CPU, if the motherboard has the physical electrical lanes that are capable of PCIe 3.0 (like the P8Z68-VGEN3 etc) an Ivy-bridge CPU would be needed In this particular motherboard, ONLY socket 1155 Ivy-Bridge CPU's will enable PCIe 3.0. Sandy Bridge-E CPU's are socket 2011 ONLY. The P8Z68-VGEN3 will not support it as it is a socket 1155 ONLY motherboard.

No beta drivers will enable PCIe 3.0 if the CPU & motherboard do not have the physical hardware controller/linkages present to enable it and are not paired correctly. =) The beta drivers you mentioned were for the x79 motherboards I think (not exactly sure)

That depends how you define bottleneck, for me getting cpu which will give you like 20 fps more does prove that your other cpu was bottleneck, so if you get 60 fps with 2500K you can get 80 with Haswell lets say, so ye, there will be bottleneck.

It will be ok, but still not the best.

I get a slight CPU bottleneck in bf3 on ultra on 64p games. Even more so if I overclock my cards so I leave em stock.

Just put in the PC the new Asus 680 DCIIO run a 3DMark for a test 33k vs the old 19k with a 560 TI biggrin.gif Quick question: it's normal that the core is going at 705MHz instead of 1019MHz? Ty

Core down clocks when not need. My core normally sits in the 300MHz area if im just on desktop. In some games that dont need alot of power to get 60fps with Vsync on my card will only jump to a 1000MHz+ for a few seconds then drop back down to 300-800MHz. Best way to test it stays at max core clock is to run on screen display of fps turn of Vsync and run Heaven. Then my card will never drop below 1337MHz.

Sorry for being unclear in my previous response!
Yeah, correct. The x79 SB-E only. I made a thread for it à couple of weeks ago.

Glad to here this, I just ordered mine a couple hours ago and it will be here tomorrow. b


EDIT: sorry meant to quote RB Snake -

"Filled out the owners application.

I'm very pleased with my GTX 680. It's Gigabyte's Windforce X3 oc version. It's super quiet and I've never seen temps go above 50c. I sold my 7970 for this card and I have to say it was probably worth. Now I have the reliability of nVida and have a couple of extra features like PhysX etc. In terms of frame rates, I only play BF3, the rate was far more consistent on the 680, on the 7970 the frame rates would fluctuate a lot on the 680 they're pretty steady.

Don't have any plans on overclocking atm, it's already factory oc'd and It's fast enough. I didn't want to get a GTX 670, because I think it would have been more of a downgrade from a 7970."
