I only brought it up because it appeared you were directly equating the TDP rating with power consumption:
If I have mistaken the meaning behind the above then I apologize.

Yep, its rated for 77w TDP which ultimately means it consumes less power then a chip with a TDP of 130w. When you introduce more power you end up with more heat. Just no way to measure, thus TDP was born.

That's true. My bad. redface.gif

The heat issue becomes a factor only when you start introducing it to more volts. The iGPU is a complete separate unit from your discrete cards. From what I know most motherboards allow you turn the iGPU right off if you wish. Either way it should not and will not interfere with any discrete card you install into the machine. This is a big perk for people who do video transcoding and such, as you can push the transcoding workload onto the iGPU and it will have no effect on your discrete graphics. So you could be playing a game and encoding a movie at the same time, without it taxing your game play any. Not to mention if you buy a Z77 motherboard with Virtu MVP it will also help your gaming greatly. You can search around the forums on what Virtu MVP is and what it does. In short it helps keep your high res games from tearing and offloading vsync onto the iGPU instead of your video card doing it. Which gives you a big boost in frame rates, with some games.

Hmm.. so it only heats up if I overclock it? Ahh but then down the road I will eventually overclock it to give me the impression of a faster cpu when its already an old CPU. Pretty much like what I did with my current CPU. I never overclocked it till about a year back when its already old.

I don't know about these TDP things though... i am new as you may well already know.

I have been seeing people at 4.5Ghz running below 80C on their setups. So Ivy will overclock just fine, just don't expect the 5.0Ghz that everyone else was expecting. Because you defiantly will be pushing dangerous temperatures there. I personally highly doubt you will overclock it any, once you get the feel of what a new processor can do, over that old Core2Quad. Like said overclocking is still an option with the 3770k, just don't expect crazy high clocks that you can reach with Sandy Bridge. Out of the box I still do believe the 3770k out performs the 3820. So its really lays with how much of a overclocker you are. If you can handle having a faster cpu at stock, and have one that doesn't OC as well as the 3820. Then 3700k is your ticket, however if you want a tad bit slower processor out of the box. But one that can punch much higher clocks if you decide to overclock it, then the 3820 would be your ticket. Tho I honestly wouldn't make the decision on the overclockability of the processors. You should consider the benefits of one over the other as well. If you were going to overclock out of the box, I would buy the 3820 and a good cooling unit. Take it up to 4.5Ghz which isn't hard and doesn't require dangerous volts. That would be your ultimate option, them clocks are perfectly safe without the worry of degrading your CPU as long as you keep it cool. And at 4.8-5.0Ghz it will blow away the 3770k easily. So no overclocking 3770k, overclocking 3820. I would suggest just overclocking the 3820, you'll have fun doing it and will get huge performance out of it. Like I said 4.5Ghz on a 3820 is so easy grandma can do it. thumb.gif
