See that the majority of reviews are yawning at your new chip Intel? Things would have been different if you didn't remove TSX from the K chips and used solder for the K chips only. Stick to your giant gap and paste for non K chips because they don't need solder anyways.

With these two simple changes all of the reviews would have been positive. You still "save" on the non K chips sold in prebuilt PC's without screwing your enthusiast customers.

Not having tried for more than an hour or so but I'm at 4.4Ghz at 1.225V with max temps 79-81c (depending on core) with my pump on lowest speed settings.
Ran Prime 95 for 15hrs no problem so far, seems pretty stable but that's far from stellar OC frown.gif

I may be able to hit 4.6 with higher volts but the temps would likely be into the high 80's even 90's.

All this aside, it's a great improvement over my D920

In summary:

Not worth upgrading from a highly clocked SandyBridge or decently clocked Ivy Bridge.

Worth the upgrade if you are on LGA1366 or older. The entire platform upgrade combined with a much faster CPU is well worth the money.

(Personally I went LGA 775 Q6600 to LGA1155 i5-2500k. For those at a different point in the cycle, LGA1366 i7-920 to LGA1150 i5-4670k/i7-4770k is recommended)

lol, not just yet


I will say this though the h.264 video encoding is epic compared to my old CPU. I stream on Twitch and can now jack up the compression settings to the max on 720p or to medium on 1080p, that's a huge + for me.
post #719 of 858
you cant stream with 3770k on high? at 720p?
