3770k vs 477k vs 3930k - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Buy the 3777k @ 80 bucks it's too cheap to pass up then get the 780 a bit later. There is always the Holiday Deal 2013 which will probably include Haswell and if you're lucky Ivy-E, if not next summer should have Ivy-E but in either case case I'm not sure I let this summer's deal pass me. Well... I didn't I got the 3930k tongue.gif but it's a shame to have access to it and not even buy a single deal. :/ .

If you want to upgrade to LGA 2011 socket, then wait for Ivy-E to launch. They are probably supposed to release X99 chipset motherboards with that CPU (not sure though). It'll be better to get that combo instead.
If you value gaming more than editing, or just want a balance between the two, you can get the 3770K and a 780/Titan. Should be a really amazing upgrade from your 580. But the 3770K will most likely not overclock to 5.0GHz so you have to be happy with 4.5-4.7GHz with the 3770K.
If you value gaming and nothing else, get 780 SLI and be done with it. The 3570K should be plenty enough to handle those two beasts.

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

wanted to ask one thing, isn't the Haswell will turn hotter than ivy with integrated regulators adding to the heat output?

I'd like to achieve some good overclocks, will be used mostly for gaming and overclock. Light photoshop and video editing.

Then why upgrade at all?
For gaming, literally, the 3930K is worse than the i5-3570k, because IPC strength is what is most important. I don't know what kind of cooling you are on or what voltage you are doing your overclock on, but if you really want a boost in performance, get a better cooler and just do a further overclock. You can do a good 1.5v+ on a high end air/closed loop and that should get you pretty big performance increase for gaming.

You really need to do professional level, non-web based photoshop/editing for the i5 to be too weak, it's already a very good CPU for such tasks. I hate whenever someone says they use photoshop that people say you MUST get some 3990X, it's absolutely ridiculous. Going to a 3930 from an i5 ivy is a downgrade for gaming, you'll get a boost in photoshop but unless you are utilizing 95%+ CPU consistently in your photoshop usage then a 3930 isn't going to be any upgrade for you.

Haswell i5 will be the best for gaming but like others have said, the reviews have to come out first. People saying things like itll overclock better, worse, it'll get hotter, not hotter, they have no clue what they are talking about. But given it's increased IPC, it'll be better than anything else for gaming, it's just a matter of how much better, is it worth it better. If you got an i5-3570k, you are already good for gaming, no reason to get anything else.

On the other hand, there's no reason you can't sell your current gear for what you paid for it. If you want to try out the 3930, just sell your current gear for their market value, and buy the 3930. It's not a big deal. If you dont like the 3930, sell it for market value and get whatever else next.

The 3770k would be a very cheap upgrade, that & the 780 is attractive!
The 3930k is a fantastic price there, but as mrtooshort pointed out, the new mobo & probably new memory adds quite a bit, although you could basically build an x79 rig for the price of a retail 3930k. Even if you don't do much multithread work to really take advantage of x79, makes it a tough choice..

Looking that way, although I still want to see what retail chips can do in the hands of other overclockers here. 1 or 2 leaked results not enough review to judge by yet...

This. No question.
Sell your current CPU/MB to recoup the expense.

I've gone from a 3770k to 3930k and so glad I did, haswell even though its a good chip overclocking is worse than a 3770k its heat is just crazy. Played with a 4770k at work and on a custom loop couldn't go past 47 as temps reached 98c in running prime 95 for 20 mins. On my 3770k the same loop I can get to 49oc and still have a little temp room. The 3930k runs at 50oc no problems and for gaming the difference between all three chips are 1-3fps would recommend the 3930k because you will also leave options to upgrade in the future to 4930k. Also run 16x 16x pcie for Sli vs 16x 8x.

Yeah me too, the 3930k is a beast.
