SB-E released in the same year as SB. But IB has a year delay. When IB is released mainstream haswell will be out. Every tock has always been a bigger improvement then a tick (you know the name of what came in between nehalem and sandy bridge?). So it is pretty likely that HW will be quite a lot better than IB. Possibly better than IB-E when it comes out a quarter later.

It will be haswell and will have a socket 1150, also better than 1155! Regardless of which is better I won't be supported if I get 1155 series!

Isn't a 3960x better than a 3770K, my mistake.

there is no one can answer ur question better then u because all depends on ur $$ and usage of the cpu u will oc lot? and looking for 3 way sli or maybe 4 way ? then 3820 otherwise 3770k because its easier to oc to reach nice 4xghz and be happy with 2 way sli biggrin.gif play all games max but on other hand if u will video edit and 3d render like me then 2011 socket is best option even extreme will be not bad idea that high speed is needed when u going to render

My budget is $1,900. I may OC, my friend told me there no need to OC? But I want to. He told me it's like your driving with the gas pedal to the floor, end resulting in a strain on the Engine/CPU? I also video edit and rendering!

I think that's kind of funny. You can look through every forum on the internet and you wont find anyone that has killed a CPU like this. CPU's that die, die because there was some other flaw. Yeah it may degrade a little but over time. But you will find chips that where maxed out for 5 years and they still can overclock and run well above stock settings. The amount of time it would take to degrade a CPU to make it run under stock setting may be like 25 years or even impossible. I guarantee every part in your system will wear out before the CPU and even the case will wear out before the CPU, seriously. Its a non issue and to top that off the CPU that do fail because of flaws are like less than 1 percent. Probably between a third to a eighth of a percent that a CPU will fail. As long as it under 1.48v.

Edit : Also you can burn out a car engine in much shorter time this is why its not a good way to describe it. Especially if say you had the pedal to the floor 24/7 on a car. most cars might not last a week.

Thank you I didn't know! This exactly the reason why I came to this site! Know I will defiantly OC! It make sense what your saying, Intel and AMD are shipping the processor unlocked (not all) and if they died quick both company would be losing money on the sheer fact replacing them! He threw me off a little, but you reassured me!

its not really like that, think about it this way,

Ghz is how many calculation per seconds you cpu (or any thing e.i. monitors) does. 1 hz = 1 calculation/refreshment per second 1mhz(1000hz) = 1000 calulations per second 1ghz=1000 000 calulations per second.

If you can get an extra ghz onto you cpu, that means your cpu can calculate 1000 000 things faster than stock!

1 calculation = addition of relevant numbers to make things pop up on your screen (can only add or subtract not multi or div)

if you think how many additions are needed until it can make something pop up on the screen, that nuber makes a big difference!

IMO waiting for Haswell would be the best choice for gaming (for the buck). Gaming doesn't need an i7, but if you ever somehow decide to start CAD or have tri/quad SLI/CFX one day, it'll do great.

Do you plan on spending 600+ for a 6 core? The ivy e quad core is going to be slower then a haswell quad. Z87 is going to be 100+ for a motherboard. Is it really that expensive?
