so..It was the same m4 i used for both builds? rolleyes.gif
Like i said..I've had a few..I'm quite familiar with..

Regardless I feel both platforms are good though. it comes down to what you like more, ford vs chevy lol
edit-
I dont experience that waiting and waiting feeling you mentioned though

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

I cant tell you what it was, I dont have it in front of me, but I know that doesnt happen with my computer and countless others'.
But who knows, you might be right. AMD might be better at opening a browser at bootup while uninstalling a program.

maybe the AMD board your using now has a better storage controller then the intel board you used with the 2500k.

thats all i can think of unless your running a different config somehow.

If you're still deciding on the cpu OP, get the 2600k/2700k or wait for a new stepping for 3770k. Anyways, a high clocked 2600k one helluva cpu.

@op if you are ok with not getting the latest and greatest, i say 2500k/2600k/2700k would be just fine. easy to overclock, runs cool and performs great. plus there are always great deals going on. for mobo i have always used asus/gigabyte and so far only got great results thumb.gif

Thanks for all the replies, even the AMD vs . Intel banter that was inevitable yet foreseeable, lol.

I think I might hold off on purchasing the chip for right now, and just focus on getting a motherboard, I am leaning towards the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe or for $100 bucks cheaper, the MSI Z77A-GD65, though I am not too familiar with MSi as a brand. My main worry with the MSI would be its power design, it says it has military grade caps and chokes etc. but I would be interested in its phase design and other specs I can't find on their website.

Just make sure your VRM's are cooled when buying a motherboard. A 6 phase board will get you to 5GHz. Most high end boards are 8+ phase so no worries there.

And this guy toting a Zosma @ 4GHz over a 2500K is on drugs.

Just noticed this Big Bang Power from MSI, that board is rather intriguing to me, I am a sucker for a bad-ass aesthetic.

Umm..no..for $100 cheaper..It's 80-90% of the performance..just sayin'.

and a lot more fun to play with biggrin.gif

OP I hope you get a good chip, whatever you get

I'm going to leave these here:

That is a socket 2011 board. You will need at least an i7 3820 to use it. Z77 is where socket 1155 stops.
