2700k vs 3770k

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I am looking to upgrade from Piledriver, and am just curious as to what would be the better option.

I know the 2700k overclocks better, and runs cooler. Now, is the fact that it overclocks better related to it running cooler? What I mean is, can I just delid the 3770k, fix the TIM, and have it overclock just the same, if not better than the 2700k? Even if I could just hit the same speeds, the fact that it is still faster clock for clock would make it worth it.

They are the same price, so just looking for whichever edges the other out in terms of performance when overclocked.

I would get the i7-3770k.The reasons for that are as follows:
1) Clock for Clock is a bit better.
2) My i5-3570k using Hyper212+ not delidded run 1.35V at 75-80 degrees in prime AVX 27.7 Build which is stressing out the CPU at it's max.And that's for 4.8Ghz
3) If you decide to delid,i7-3770k would overclock decent enought with temps compared to the ones with SB.
4) I have seen people with non-delidded chips at 5.00GHz @ ~1.42-45V with decent temps,liquid cooling though.
P.S. You could always wait for Haswell as it would be better than Ivy or Sandy and on new socket too smile.gif Your CPU isn't that bad for gaming,it's great for rendering etc. though.
