2600k to 3570k?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Would this be a step down overall? I don 't use HT a whole lot. Just recently got a $199 2600k but I'm a little tempted to sell it and get an i5. Dumb idea?

if your going to overclock stay away from the new ivy bridge ive seen reviews and they run HOT as ****

I don't think it is worth it. There is not too much of a difference in performance to justify selling the 2600k.

I'd say keep it. The performance difference is minor, and you may use applications that take advantage of HT in the future.

$199 for 2600k is an awesome deal

Well it IS a downgrade. So if you want best performance cpu wise, don't do it. If you want energy saving and don't care about HT/how you cpu performs aslong as it gets the job done... "downgrade" wink.gif

Yeah bad idea, it would be a downgrade. The 3570k is about 7% better than the 2500k if I remember correctly, and pretty sure the 2600k is a bigger improvement over the 2500k than that. Also, like somebody said they run hot as hell.

Not worth a sandy bridge upgrade to ivy you would almost be going down in OCing ability due to these ivy's running pretty hot from what iv heard, I have no idea if the fact that intel is using TIM instead of a Fluxless solder like on a sandy, im not sure if that was the first test chips or if intel is really using TIM on all of them or if it is a production problem in the starting batch. I did see videos of proof that there is TIM on the ivy chips instead of Fluxless Solder and that may be responsible for the hot temps but can anyone insight whether that was just the test chips using TIM or are all ivys using TIM? that would be a SHAME! Either way as with any product i like to usually wait a bit for them to work out the production issues as the first batches usually have some problem non the less. But after seeing performance/Thermal info i have no reason to go from sandy to ivy. ill be lookin at Haswell in 2013 Q2 new socket and what not.

Do it would be a more viable transition if you have sli 680's? Considering the added bandwidther of PCI-E 3.0? I too do not really use hyperthreading.
