The thing about open box motherboards that I'm scared about is that if all the accessories are included or not...
Though most of the open box items laying around are probably ones unboxed by Paul maybe? rolleyes.gif

3770K @ 5.1 with 500w of tec = 10.28
2600K @ 5.3 watercooled = 10.24

I don't have a specific source, when Ivy Bridge reviews were released most of them claimed ~5-10% IPC improvement based on whatever benchmark you are looking at. I was just making a very generalized statement. At +10% IPC, 4.5ghz IVY should equal ~5.0ghz Sandy. Your cinebench scores are interesting but then that's also one single benchmark and not an average of a large number of benchmarks.

Reading all this stuff about the great exploits of Ivy it's rather ironic. It's like we should all just pack up our bags and go home by the reviews. But good thing for us we don't all go by reviews verbatim because they're not always right.

If you guys had access to MicroCenter and its prices, which would you choose?

http://www.microcenter.com/storefronts/intel/PROCESSORshowcase.html

I'm deciding between the i7 3770k and i7 3820. Is the 3770k worth $60 more?

I'm deciding between the i7 3770k and i7 3820. Is the 3770k worth $60 more?

When I first got my P8Z77-V mobo I got the 2600k combo deal, which brought my board price down to $160 bucks or so. I later returned the 2600k a few days later once the 3770k released.

So in my case ya it was worth it getting the 3770k smile.gif

If you already have a Z77 mobo I'd get the 3770k.
If you are getting a mobo and CPU... the 3820 is a good CPU.

I'd see what combo deals are available with motherboards and go for the better price and quality option.
I do love my 3770k though smile.gif

PASS ON 2nd intel i7

Instead get a faster,low watts cooler a 3rd gen intel ivy 3770,smaller die

K (unlocked ) the ivy supports PCIe 3.0 which can boost in games in video by from 10-40% faster video performance over pcie 2.0

I did test on 3820 3770k

3770k I felt better own mb bt

Win Pro 7
ASUS Z77 Sabertooth
for new 3rd gen 3770k
DDR3 Corsair 1600
SLI Evga 680 SC Sig oced 1350/6400
2 Ccorsair 120X2 RAID O
2 OCZ A III 60x2 raidO
1 OCZ A III chacing for 2tb external internal 1tb
1200 watt PS
haf x full tower 240 rad 2x120s on it but case comes with fans 200mm

As so I went for the 3770k which handles blazing in all fast for work/play play the other on Sandy B is short live.

both in setups and using these were very close in most test.

Maybe when comparing 4 cards running@pcie 2.0 x1 and 4 cards running@pcie 3.0 x8

No brainer, get the 3770.

Forgot about upgrading, I have a x58 MB with a 930 in it and no way am i upgrading the cpu. When i upgrade it will be new mb/cpu.

I've been building my own PCs for 20 years and while I always liked the idea that I could upgrade the reality is there was always a better mb/cpu vs just upgrading the cpu alone. So don't worry about potential upgrades, just enjoy it while it lasts then get new cpu/mb when you get that upgrade itch again.

Personally I'd get the I7 3820 just because it's the enthusiast socket, has better specs (more L3 cache), quad channel memory and possibility of upgrading in the future.
