[MT] Intel Core i7-3770K Gets Overclocked to 6.9 GHz with ASRock Z77 Extreme6 - Page 4

post #31 of 61
So if I were going from an old AMD CPU to an Intel, would it be in my better interests to get the IB or SB?

IB of course. I think I said somewhere before

Sandy bridge owners = don't bother upgrading
People on lynfield/lga775/old AMD = upgrade to IB

I gotta say... IMO, sandy bridge, cause it runs cooler. thumb.gif

Well, would the extra heat be worth using the PCI-e 3.0? Cause I'm also getting a 680 as well.

I was planning on getting a 2600K w/ a Z77 board, but I'm on the fence at the moment on whether I want to spend the extra money or wait a little longer.

Almost every review states "If you don't have Sandy, get Ivy", "If you have Sandy, keep it".

So I would suggest getting Ivy. That's what i'm doing.

I disagree.. but hey that's your opinion. Pretty much all those reviews say if you are on something earlier than Sandy, to get Ivy. it's a upgrade over Sandy, but it's a small one.

Unless you are buying a golden sandy chip from someone that will achieve 5GHz, Ivy is the way to go in my opinion. Since 4.6Ghz (minimum you are going to get probably) on a 3770k is roughly equal to 5GHz on Sandy, maybe 1% slower, and very few Sandys actually get 5GHz 24/7. Ivy will beat a normal sandy that achieves 4.7-4.8GHz.

There is no "extra heat" in fact there is less heat. IB just has higher temps because of the fact that it has more transistors than SB, packed into a smaller space than SB... There is a lot of other possible factors too. But this is probably the main one.

This is a common misconception that's starting to irritate me, it does not produce more heat, it just runs hotter/can't dissipate the heat as well.

IB of course, why buy older technology when the newer technology has similar/better performance with more features...

If you're moving to LGA1155, you will most likely get a z77 chipset, and what's the point in the z77 chipset if you can't utilize the features which it provides...

People forget that along with Ivy you get; less power consumption, less heat produced, PCI-E 3.0, Lucid Virtu MVP, higher IPC, much more memory bandwidth and a much better IMC.

going to keep it cool.

if it was intel IHS' Problem then temps @ stock or moderate Overclock would yield a much higher average temperature than SB. (since cooler doesn't contact the core well enough) But Plenty reviews indicates that after the certain voltage the temps shoots out of control. I'm guessing here, but either a new stepping should solve the problem or coolers must find a way to dissipate the surge of concentrated heat from a small die area more effectively.

Tom's had their average performance increase at 3.7%. Anand has something similar, possibly a bit higher in games, though they didn't calculate the average. They also said that the processor might stay more of the time in a turbo boost state than sandy bridge (here). Of course, turbo boost is disabled when overclocking, so someone should do a comparison on overclocked settings.
If we were to apply a 3.7% increase on the 4.6Ghz of IB, we would get 4.77Ghz, so a 4.8Ghz SB is about equivalent. As I said, someone needs to do a real comparison, because these percents might not be good because of turbo boost.

If it can run a stable 5.0 24/7 underwater this thing will be worth it. This is the deal breaker for me.

5GHz 24/7 what are you benching 24/7?
Just because it will clock that high don't mean you need to run it like that 24/7, if you video cards are bottle necked then turn it up when gaming or benching, like a car if it has 500HP you don't drive around at 500hp all the time you only use it when you need it.

My 980X don't need to be any higher than 3.8GHz with tri 480's when gaming even though it will run at 4.5GHz 24/7 only time I go higher is if I'm benching for a high score.
