I got coming on 16th...

3570k,
MSI Z77A-GD65,
DDR3 8Gb(2x4Gb)1600MHz
Coolermaster Hyper 612S

With this I was planing to go 4.5Ghz EASY (I'm fairly new to overclocking hence the MSI Z77A-GD65 for making it "easy"). I waited for IB for quiet a while now to upgrade from my old Q9550. And now I keep reading "Heat issues...", "No performance increase in gaming from overclocking IB..." ohno-smiley.gif



How big of a mistake did I make.... frown.gif

No, there is generally about a 10-15% increase, BUT, games are now graphics intensive, so something like a Phenom II 955 would be fine as well. For real world usage with a heavy OC I think Sandy is the winner.

But Ivy is still good, I mean, 15% Better than Sandy is a pretty big increase.

Plus an additional 1% increase if you have a PCI Express 3.0 graphics card, not sure if you took that into account too with your '15%' number wink.gif

I don't even think there is Any increase at all with PCI-E 3.0, Card's now don't even use the bandwidth of 2.0

There was a review that came out a few days ago where they saw an average 1% increase

and this older one too

Just "one" more reason to get a IB over SB if someone is building a new system thumb.gif

From the benchmarks I've seen recently, IMO if comparing the performance, Ivy core speed = Sandy core speed +200Mhz?

So running 3570k @ 4.2Ghz will probably ~ 2500k @4.4Ghz right?

So if you want to OC, why not get a 3570k and OC it to 4.5Ghz or even greater without worry hitting wall?

I believe most 3570k out there can OC 4.5Ghz and above but 2500k to 4.7Ghz and above? Not that many.


I just build my system about a week ago. I thinked a lot before choosing 3570k. Ran it for couple days and I must say it didn't make me happy that much at first. At one time, I talked to myself ...damn me why not just get the ****ing 2500k so I don't have to worry about all these hot temperatures and stuff!!!!! But after a week of using and tweaking, I believe I made the right choice smile.gif

Can't go wrong with either one.

I personally would get the IB
