I would never change to a 3770K from a 3930k because I can't get my timings to the rated spec sheet. Guys, this guy does not want to overclock at all. Don't persuade him into doing something he really does not want to do.
To give you the exact reason as to why I don't want to overclock is simple... I tried it once many years ago, I failed miserably, I vouched to never do it again. All the convincing in the world couldn't get me to attempt the same mistake on a system that I built for $4,000! Now I know that sounds extremely expensive, but in reality, its not. If I keep this for the next 6-7 years with only mild upgrades, then it would have only cost me a little under $600 a year to own ($50/m) I wanted to build a gaming rig ONCE and leave it at that.
Of course maybe a few years down the line when (or if) I give a damn about how the system is performing I'm sure I'll look into overclocking as it is something I know I will end up doing. But for now, no thanks!
