i5-3570K + ASRock Z77 Extreme4...HERE I COME!

Any other deals?? I already have a Z68 GEN3.

I kept trying to get the store here to tell me about deals/pricing but some manager girl wouldn't guarantee they would even have Ivy's on Sunday. mad.gif

In four or five months, 3770k and ASRock Z77 Professional (I'll try desperately and give a true concerted effort to ignore Fatal1ty logos).

My argument for getting the 3770k instead of the 3570k is entirely falsifiable. I have no good reason for wanting HT, but I'll make damn sure I get it anyways.

Already have a 2500k, but I am very interested in the 3770k. I know HT has no beenfit for gaming, but I can imagine the extra f@h horsepower it has.

3570K for sure!!! smile.gif

I'm just hoping sandy prices will drop and get a steal, but if it's only £20 marginal differences then I'll probably get 3570k. thumb.gif

I just bought a Asus P8Z77-V Pro board today. I'm upgrading from a netbook rolleyes.gif

Unless there is a significant price drop on the 2500k then I will most likely go with the 3570k, which correct me if I'm wrong but as long as I dont OC it past 4.6 I should be fine in regards to heat.

Ok reading trough this thread I still don't know what to use. The 2500k or 3570k. Can someone answer me some questions please ^^?

1. Better OC
2. Easier to OC
3. Better temps? (stock, load)
4. Power consumption
5. Runs better games (FPS)

Anyone really done any benchmarks to compare these too?

1. IMO it overclocks the same as Sandy expect for golden chip. Remember by average 4.8GHz Ivy is equal to 5.0GHz Sandy.
2. I'll say it's easy to OC until you try to go over from 4.6 - 4.8GHz or 1.3-1.4V unless you have the golden chip
3. The temps are warmer and they will spike up if you go over 1.3-1.4V or 4.6-4.8Ghz depending the the chip. Ivy can take 5-10C more than Sandy. Keep it under 90C during prime95
4. Ivy have lower power consumption than Sandy. 4.8GHz Ivy consumed less power.
5. Ivy have 5-7% IPC improvement over Sandy, so you might see slight fps improvement.

There are some benchmarks out there. IB also come with PCI 3.0 and higher RAM speed support.

im going i5-3570K...since im not an extreme overclocker. i5-3570K seems better for those mild to moderate OC...while 2500k might be better for those that really like to push the CPU as much as possible.

Also, I thought I read that i5-3570K was better in some (ok, very very few) CPU intensive games...like Shogun...but by A LOT more than 2500k (very few games, will show this benefit)....but if this is true...I would imagine that i5-3570K would have some benefits in some MMO games...such as Guild Wars 2 (which I am planning on getting). I realize in most games the difference isn't even noticeable..but if it is better in some MMO/RTS games...perhaps i5-3570K is the better choice?

Someone correct me if I am wrong.
