i5 4670K vs i5 3570k

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Firstly I'm new here so please be kind :-D

I've recently ordered a bundle where the company overclocks the CPU, (includes ram and new mobo). It's an i5 3570k OC to 4.5ghz. P.S. Before you moan at me I'm useless at the intricate technicalities of OC so this was my best bet!

My system is currently being built but the new I54670k Haswell has just launched on their site, and for £30 I can have that chip and OC to 4.4ghz.

My head is saying, "for £30 just go for the newer chip" but from the reviews I have seen the new Intel Core i5 4670K isn't really giving the huge performance increase people were hoping for?

Do I pocket the £30 or go with the newer chip (assuming it's a Haswell socket will mean I can upgrade my cpu at a later date no?).

Thanks all in advance for your advice.

I would go for the 4670K and just not get it factory overclocked - do it yourself. If they can't do that, then i would still grab Haswell as their motherboards seem to offer much greater features than the Z77 counter parts. Combined with the fact that it's a new socket, as you say, it will be able to accommodate Intel's next "tick" in their development cycle.

He might end up with a CPU that can't be overclocked to 4.5... The store can select a better part for him.

Thanks Davayy.

The company in question will overclock to 4.4ghz on the Haswell as part of the deal (it's free).

I guess my main concern is that it doesn't under perform vs the i53570k as I've heard so many great things about that particular chip.

The motherboard advice is not something I had really thought of so thanks for that. I'll go away and do some research.

Forgot to mention it will not be a stock cooler but an upgrade - to reach the OC of 4.4ghz.

They're equal chips, if there is any difference it is in favour for the 4670k..

I doubt the retail shop would cherry pick CPUs. They don't know which silicone is the best on their shelves, they would just pick one at random and overclock it. 4.4 is easily achievable on any chip (regardless of silicone) unless you get an especially poor sample which is very unlikely.

Unless the next "tick" is an 1160 socket a lot of people thought the Has well would use the 1155 but they changed it slightly. Something they seem to like to do. I haven't seen Over clock max setting yet but as stock the i5-3570k and i5-2500k both have faster Benchmark scores. Might want to wait and see what socket they use for their six core as games will start catering to that in the not to distant future.

I dont think the motherboards new options are much better than z77. Not to justify spending more on them. The changes arent as big (or good)as from z67 to z77.

The "tick" will be 1150 as it's only a die shrink. Haswell wouldn't use 1155 as it is a new architecture. Haswell also beats Sandy and Ivy in becnhmarks; granted, SB overclocks better than both; however, IPC performance is better on Haswell.

I think I know which shop it might be
they are offering pre-tested guaranteed overclock chips as high as 4.8Ghz

these are OEM chips not retail boxed.

anyway they are a great company to deal with and only lost out on my order due to not having the Gryphon, although now they do and my order is on hold with the other supplier while they wait for the Gryphon (aaarrrgghh)

anyway I must not steer off topic.

I would get the Haswell, simply to have the latest socket and the great motherboard features too, even if it does perform similar to the previous gen, its not worse.
