If you are doing extreme overclocking, get the i7-2700. If not than it is up to you if the performance difference, which is 9% at most, is worth the extra $70. You can always upgrade down the road.

For extreme OCing IB is much better than SB is. For normal OCing SB is arguably better than IB is (at the price points the OP has, SB is a better choice for normal usage)

Benchmarks are used to show you your performance Gains btw..
If you choose to go with the out dated SB cpu buy it used and save some money. there is some good used deals out there on them.
When Haswell comes out i will be selling my 2600k and my 3770k will them be moved to my back up rig.
And then i will be pushing Haswell...

Actually both sides have provided proof -- You provided your biased opinions and we have provided ours. It's true that a 3770K runs hotter than a 2700K. It is true that generally unless frozen (because heat woudln't matter when frozen) that a 2700K generally clocks better than a 3770K and when that happens, the PERFORMANCE difference is negligible and the end user would save $70.

If no overclocking, grab the 3770K. If you're freezing, grab the 3770K. If you're doing what 90% of others are doing as far as overclocking, grab the 2700K and spend the money elsewhere on the computer just as I did and many others.

As for if a chip can take more heat, that's bull **** and you need to re-read your 100+ reviews a month to understand that. Or quit reading so much, it's your choice -- If the chip heats up to 95c where you think is 100% OK. You really think that's not going to limit an overclock or stability? As far as engineering, they're both the same as far as thermal limits go...... we can all obviously tell you're a major IB fan boy but dang bro, get the hell off your high horse about it.

Lastly, if you own a company and build for a living and actually email and type on a computer. PLEASE USE YOU'RE and not "YOUR"

So friggin annoying when "Company owners" do that crap

Bump,
There is no way the 3770k is worth $73 more when using this fan(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118046) right?

That would depend on the 3770k, but in most cases probably not.

So I've been doing some research and reading the comments in this thread; the consensus seems to be that the 3770k is overall better by a small margin, 2-9% depending on the study or opinion. The 2700K has less heat issues so is little more friendly to OCing, particularly if you're using budget cooling, thus making the benefit of the 3770k even smaller for OCers. The 3770k does have 3.0 video card support which is reportedly very marginal increase in most games, but should start to slowly become a larger impact with future games.

Does this seem to be the general points?

What I'm wondering is if both had top of the line air cooling, NH-D14 or better, what difference in OCing would you expect?

This study shows only a 2.7% performance increase with both at 3.9 GHz:
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/overclocked_cpus.html

Everything I've read would indicate that if anything the 2700K should be able to get the same or higher clock at same stability and temperature as the 3770K.

It seems to me that an OCing enthusiast on a normal budget would be much better off with 2700K, unless they're really expecting to get great PCI e 3.0 benefit on future cards and games.

I made this same choice just this week, and went with the 2700k. For marginal performance and possible high temps if you overclock, I decided to take the cheaper and possibly better (for my situation) chip.
Either way you'll be blown away.

i run my i7-2700K at 5.GHz 1.33v max temp in prime 59c:) the i7.2600K that i had needed 1.52v max temp 77c. the i7-3770K maxes at 4.5.GHz and runs to hot!!! at 87c!!!

3770K is superior overall and that's all that matters but most people will never use it to its full potential.

The improvement is about 10% but I dunno why NCIX is so expensive. 3770K should be $20 more at most. Buy from Newegg.ca instead ?

Although I7-2700K is not a bad choice it's old tech and slower clock for clock. My friend has the 2600K and he had a hard time reaching stable 4.6GHz. It's definitely not easy to overclock.
