Depends if that 30$ is worth the possible extra overclocking potential to you, because that's all the 2700k is, a slightly better binned 2600k.

It's a pretty sure bet it's faster than an i3 2100..can't say..cuz I've never had an i3 2100.
I've had...idk..a few 2500Ks whistle.gif

But yes you are right, if Phenom 2 970 (3.5ghz) is on par with i3 2100 then a Phenom 2 @4.0 must be slightly faster than a i3 2100.

A 4+ ghz 960T is just about as good as a 2500K @ 5ghz
but about as good as a 5ghz 2500k i doubt it

tbh..the only that seems faster with SB chips is gaming/Windows loading.Yes,gaming is smoother.Yes Windows loads faster.However,web surfing/browsing comp/doing windows things is slower.You click something with a 5 ghz 2500k and you're waiting..and waiting..while the AMD chip opens it in about 1/2 second.May have something to do with where the instructions are in the pipeline.If i felt the 2500K was a better chip(all around),I would have kept it,and sold my 960T and motherboard.

And that was a stable 5.0Ghz? The only thing I feel is that with the 2500k things load quicker, such as the heaven benchmark which loads in about 17seconds vs 34seconds on amd, but I swear excel and word docs take a HAIR longer with the 2500k. Regardless I feel both platforms are good though. it comes down to what you like more, ford vs chevy lol

I dont experience that waiting and waiting feeling you mentioned though

why not just use an ssd?

my FX4100 "seems" fast in windows, but when gaming the other day i lagged a little bit in crysis 2. i agree the amd chips do act "faster" in windows, but for sandy bridge a ssd solves it i think.

just picked up a Maximus V Gene the other day... waiting to put a 3570k in it..

It wasnt the chip that was causing that huge load time.

Do this:
a)Boot into windows and open browser(s)
b)Open control panel and uninstall something

That guy that said 4GHz 960T faster then 5GHz i5 2500k, I laughed PRETTY damn hard.

Here's the thing, the deneb's IMC was really bad compared to Thuban, which is the 960T, so I wouldn't be surprised if a 4GHz 960T + 3GHz CPU-NB could match a i5 2500k at stock, but not when it's overclocked, and this is coming from an absolute AMD fanboy, but I'm not afraid to admit that Intel is faster. wink.gif
