3770K or 3820?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Slowly getting back into pc building but just need a little help from you guys on the difference between the 3770k & 3820?

I know the basics; 22nm v 32nm, skt 1155 v 2011, etc, etc but which one is better?

I'm going to be using my pc for gaming and overclocking only.

Cheers

Well,

I really comes down to what else you're putting into the machine, if you're going to be having 2 or more GPU's then go with the 2011 socket for the extra PCI-E lanes, if your'e not going to be doing SLi or Xfire then go with the 3770.

The only other bonus of the 2011 socket is it's meant to be used with the haswell-E and ivy-e chips as well,

Just..... Wow....

Incidently there is a flaw in your idea, a number of games don't work with RAM disks.... They become unstable.

Im just trying to explain that theres more to 3820 than a pretty name, more challanging overclocking and their PCI-lanes. It actually measures up to a 3570k in gaming performance more or less, both overclock and stock they go pretty much head to head in everything (obviously 3820 is better in some cases and 3570k in some cases).

And there will be an Ivybridge-E coming too, upgrade-potential in the 2011 chipset is better than 1155.


The 3820 vs 3570k discussion is an old one. It's been discussed much and still have no clear winner. My personal view is that if theyre about the same price why not go for a 3820? X79 mobos are expensive for a reason, theyre enthusiast stuff.

Oh and theyre prettier too smile.gif.
