Well that's good to hear. I have been very pleased with my fx-8350. I was basically wanting to know if it would be on par with that or how it would perform in relation etc.

UPDATE 12PM CT: Numerous people have called and e-mailed Legit Reviews about this story. It appears that the USB 3.0 issue is isolated to a USB controller issue on the client side. Intel also sent us an e-mail today letting us know that there is no delay with the Haswell platform launch. It looks like the C1 chipsets will be launched as planned in June 2013 and then the board makers will transition to the C2 chipsets sometime after July 2013.

Sorry, but I don't buy that. If it was just with a cheap USB controller, then Intel wouldn't have to fix their CPU with a C2 stepping, the USB controller would be fixed instead.

So it looks like the early adopters of Haswell will be getting a buggy CPU based on the C1 chip and if you don't want the bug, you will have to wait til later (and depending on how much stock there is of the C1 chips, you could be playing Russian Roulette as to your stepping version for some time to come). Not the best move in my mind. You could seriously tick off customers that way if they get the C1 version and don't know about the bug.

This is going to be as ugly as the old Pentium FDIV bug from '94.

2600K is far superior chip than a 8350. Not even close... Around 35% faster than a 8350 & will OC like no one's business....

The 2600k is fast - you will be happy. I told my wife just yesterday that I was sad because my 2500k@4.5 is too speedy and that it was at fault for not giving me any justification for building a new system.

Just be sure to put an SSD in there - going from HD to SSD makes a much bigger difference in general system performance than any sort of CPU upgrade between anything in the Sandy-Ivy-Haswell range.

I would spend at least that much for a low end 1st gen Haswell easily and still have to pick up the mobo, ram and various accesories
OOOO Ok go for it its a good deal if its everything together

The 2600K is still a very capable cpu that would last for years to come but it's soon to be two generations old

Nobody cares about a 3 to 5% limited case performance gain easily obtainable through overclock and everyone knows Intel is not using up its additional transistor count on its new process for much of anything but improving upon its integrated gpu. Not a worthwhile investment considering there are options such as this for a third of the cost.

Real world you will notice a difference if you run single threaded apps. smile.gif

As far as Haswell, it's all speculation now. We don't know if it still uses TIM instead of fluxless solder, nor do we know how high it OCs and the real world benefits of that.

For the price that you're getting all the for, it's a no brainer. Haswell is only worth the upgrade for technology sakes. I skipped a 2011 Hexacore cause I use a couple of devices that use thunderbolt. However I will get a IVY-E Hexacore, cause it's about 20% faster than a 3770K & it will have the technology I need. I wouldn't upgrade if it didn't. $330 is steal for all of that. You'll see a much more gain than a 8350 as well

Sweet! I'm very glad to hear that it performs that well! The deal I made was a definite no brainer! it was an offer I couldn't refuse thumb.gif I am planning on stuffing it in a fractal design define R4 and doing some fairly heavy modding to the case. I will probably put the 2600k under water, nothing fancy I'm thinking the Intel water cooler will be nice and go with the color scheme I'm thinking of, which is mainly goin to be blue and white with some heavy red accents.

Get a corsair H80i over the Intel cooler, much better performer. I had a 2600K & it was a great chip.

H80i
