A buddy of mine just bought a 3570 and new z77 mobo. Installed both and after a few hours went back to his 2500k and z68. He didn't like the temps and had no notable performance increase. Truth is...you can't go wrote with both. I think having an ivy bridge running so hot will in turn heat up other components possibly.

Then your buddy needs better cooling. My IB runs around 25C idle and gaming like 55C and even at full load it averages around low 70s. The rest of my components stay cool just fine by using the case fans.

^ that's why I'm keeping my 2600k. I've only replaced my P8P67 Pro mobo for a P8Z77 (I need the DVI port on the mobo sinc I sold my GPUs LOL)

He has an h100. Let us know what your temps are in prime95 and ibt with avx. Listing gaming temps is very vague and inconsistent. Also,.don't assume everyone has a great case with great cooling. I promise you higher CPU temps can affect other components.

Here's my P95 temps with AVX. This was at the end of a 18 hour run. Linx on 20 passes on standard with AVX are cake. On very high they hit maybe the mid 80s on average.

338

EDIT: And my case isn't fancy or expensive. It's a mid tower that has a great cooling ability for it's price. And it's quiet that was my biggest thing tongue.gif

I did basically the same thing. Bought a 3570k and at 4.8ghz is nice but temps were too hot for my taste and I have decent cooling too. Since I sold my 4.8ghz 2500k I would not settle for a slower CPU because of heat.

Ambient temps are a big factor. I also didn't care for the temps and I have an antec 920 modded with a resivour and two 120mm radiators. Have the tj08e which did raise temps 2-3c when compared to my rosewill blackhawk. My ambient in California has been 78F lately. Prime peaked at 92c with 1.384v on the 3570k but was mostly in the mid 80's. Gaming I'm sure would have been 70's but folding I wouldn't want it running in the 80s for extended periods.

Well your case is understandable because you're past the 1.3v point and with IB, that's an issue. After those amount of volts, temps start shooting up.

3770k hands down i see quite better performance in game over my old 2600k

I am seeing 5 = 10 second faster map load times and 3 =8 fps. and over all everything feels more smooth.

Yeah. I didn't have a golden 3570k but was still fast. I think its great though. Average cooling should do 4.5ghz and ipc is faster. The only reason to go sandy is if your looking for 24/7 4.8ghz or more with responsible temps.

I've been using an H100 since they came out,
I run my SB at 4.8 Under load never gets above 71 74 on cores.
Idles 23-25
The way Ib was heating, Not badly,
And the performance wasn't that different ( For me )
I went back to SB.
Those are darn good temps you have running Linx with 20 passes.
As GM said,
Can't go wrong with either.
