I know, and I don't think Ivy was a flop either - but I guess definitions of flop vary. 

 

Still can't decide whether to make the move to a 4770K or not - on one hand I don't really need the performance or anything, but on the other, I really want something new to play with (especially with the FSB straps and potential for more voltage options).  Plus, delidding.

Exactly! It's just another toy to play with for me too. I got bored of my 2500k and the crap mobo it was pair with couldn't let me push it higher. Should I have shelled out $200 for a new mobo or sell the whole thing? Sell it and I get a new Haswell setup for the same price why not?

At least this has a chance to OC higher and run cooler. Still isn't solid data on OC potential for Haswell and from the looks of 1.14V for 4.5ghz, that looks like a lot of potential. Anyway, it's just an excuse to attempt for a "silent" test bench rig tongue.gif

Well the worst thing for me about getting another chip is I'll have to take apart my rig, just put it in a HAF912 last week

Please. When you quote Intel than do it right. It goes up from tablets to notebook, then there's desktops and tada servers. you've seen the slides, right?

What? I have both the processors you've mentioned in your post, and they only require ~1.23V for a 4.6GHz OC (PLL Overvoltage disabled).

Note: My i5-2500 does @5.2GHz on air and my i7-2600K 5.4GHz with 1.43V so something is wrong there.

p.s. This is why I love to run OS X on my computers, because it is so much more fun!

The cpu may not be enough to upgrade but motherboards this generation are looking really nice.

Silicon lottery.

Friend of mine has a 3570k that passed 12hour prime at 5ghz 1.28v, yet average CPU would be 400 or 500mhz behind it and some are still stuck at something silly like 4.3.

That's like me saying "ha, they don't require 1.23v for 4.6ghz you nub" and posting this: http://i.imgur.com/Ry5dxro.jpg

Current Ivy Bridge owners, I'll just stop you now, no one cares that you don't feel the need to upgrade your year old processor. You should be happy you don't have to spend unnecessary money and really, is there anything your Ivy Bridge CPU can't do right now? Yeah didn't think so.

Same thoughts - its the electric I wanna save on and gain a new architecture USB 3 etc - and still nice to know you have a form of a gpu to fall back on if card fails or sold current one and waiting for replacement . I like the idea thumb.gif
