Im really torn up between the two platforms.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
3770k or 3820
This has literally been back and fourth for a couple of weeks now, i really don't no what to get.
If i get a 3770K i will be going with a Z77 OC Formula
If i go with a 3820 i will be going with a IV Formula
2011 cost $4 less.
What are the differences, will 2011 have IB-E support?
Thanks thumb.gif

Go X79. If you have a Microcenter to your disposal it can actually be cheaper than going Z77. Not to mention Ivy Bridge-E will be released 3 months after Haswell and that means LGA 2011 will be Intels Extreme socket until late 2014. LGA 1155 is being phased out in less than 6 months. X79 boards will support Ivy Bridge-E processors - LGA 1155 boards WILL NOT support Haswell because Haswell will be on Socket 1150.

The only downsides to LGA 2011 is the fact that SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0 are ran off of controllers rather than the chipset.

Btw - you can adjust Bclk on the 3820 so overclocking is a breeze. I got 4.5GHz stable EASY.

Sadly in Australia we don't have a "microcentre" haha frown.gif, Guess i will be going with a 3820 also, what motherboard do you suggest, i'm kind of iffy with the Formula.

I have the ASrock X79 Extreme4-M which is a Micro ATX board and I have no complaints what so ever so far - but i've only had my system for 2 days. I can't really suggest a board - just look at reviews. Quite a few X79 boards have issues. I haven't had any with mine. Maybe consider the ATX version? X79 Extreme4. My last 4 boards have been ASrock and i've loved them all.


I've had: H77M, A75M, Z77 PRO3, N68-S
