i7 3770k or i7 2700k

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am plotting a new build for my friend, and for awhile, I was going to get an i7 3770k.
But, then I saw for about the same price, a 2700k on Newegg.
I am building on mini itx, or I would get a 3970x P
so it must be lga 1155
which one has more power?
Thanks!

Wait, I just noticed, it only takes 1333 ram :/
3770k takes 1600
I'm going 1600, so it's going to be the 3770k

Go for 3770k.New platform z77 compared to z68,pci express 3, 10% faster compared to sandy bridge

Btw, are there any 6 core processors on lga 1155?
post #5 of 17
No, only 4 core processors on 1155 with hyperthreading.

Both processors will do 1600 (I dont know their limits, but they both will do 2133 at least), but the motherboard you choose may not. The 3770K is a faster processor. I would go with it if its the same price, but the 2600K is close in performance if you can find one considerably cheaper.

If you're buying new, I would get a 3820. That platform will have a much longer lifespan. Read thread below, pay attention to first post regarding the cinebench test.

I would, but nobody makes a 2011 mini itx :/

erm, good luck getting that 3820 on an itx board. tongue.gif

For the same price, go 3770K. If you can get the 2600K for ~$50-100 less I'd do that. But all in all the 3770K is in all ways superior except in temperature control (only an issue if you're going for a huge OC).

Does your friend plan to overclock of yes 2600 is a good choice. Also sandy bridge runs cooler than ivy bridge.

Ivy bridge does offer pci-e 3 which is great even though there are only a couple GPUs that will saturate a pci-e 2 lane.

Also for the same price point you can go i7 3820 (2011 socket) price wise it's close. That way you can upgrade to another SBe or the future IBe CPUs.
