i5 3570k 169.99 vs i7 2700k 199.99 vs i7 3770k 229.99 for gaming - Page 2

Honestly I would not even consider the 2700. I would consider the 3770 or the 3570. I personally felt like I would upgrade to soon to justify the cost of the 3770 for my use. Some people might be playing a game that actually uses HT and would get more use out of the 3770 than me though.
Just depends on what you need and will actually use to determine what you should actually spend. thumb.gif

I can grab the i7 3770k for 229.99 I am thinking if the i7 2700k is going to bottleneck with 3 gpu's why not the i7 3770k
Note I need to know which is best for an AIR COOLED rig I have a noctua nh-d14 that I am throwing a custom made delta king pin 310 cfm fan on hoping to drop the temps by a significant margin over the stock which already keeps it hella cool mid to high 30s on idle 50 on load oc'ed from what i hear but my case is the rosewill thor v2 I got 3 total of those delta fans and i tried them out already the rip honestly 280-310 cfm constant thats insaninity its like 5 sq feet of air a second..
just let me know which is best smile.gif

Either the i5 or the i7. For full tri or quad sli or quad fire ect ect, get the i7. The i7 will give you more freedom with the full gpu setup in that thing. The nhd14 will cool it well. Up to around 1.35-1.4 vcore depends on the chip. And if you want later on to completely blow away all others chips right now delid it. You will get the most bang for the buck with the i7 though. The hyperthreading might not be really useful now. But you never know what game will come and out will get performance boosts from it.

Ivy bridge, native pcie3.0 and ddr3 1600. Has problems overclocking above 4.8, but really? 4.8 for gaming?

I would get the 3770k since its going cheap. Just remember taxes... it wont be $170 or $230 flat. Probably $185~190 and $240~250 respectively, still cheap though. Im thinking about grabbing a 3770k as a backup for my delidding process of my current one (if it fails), microcenter is running sick deals in some of the products they carry.

Ivy itself doesn't have issues. Its the space intel put between the die and the IHS making the heat issure when you start with higher OCs reaquiring higher vcore.

Nitpicking... but whatever.

Not being nitpicky. Just saying it because when someone looks at comments on a purchase and sees something about a chip and that it isn't good for ocing. They take that to heart sometimes. I was just saying why that issue occur, so not to blame the chip itself but the maker of the chip.

Sorry if I came out grouchy at you! thumb.gif
