i7 3770k to i7 4700k?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey guys

what do you think about this

I can upgrade to an i7 4770k with the basically the same motherboard I have for nothing more than £50? that is if haswell takes the same ram?

is it worth it for the latest tech? im kind of edging to do it but im thinking maybe its not as stable as ivy atm or maybe im wrong?

He could sell his hardware and buy the processor+mobo from what he gets + those £50

In thinking it might be a slight upgrade + investment?

Why not it is only £50

only thing that will suck is reinstalling your OS.


If you overclock the 4770k does more per clock. Probably need 4.8ghz on ivy to match 4.6ghz on haswell and 5ghz+ on sandy to match 4.6ghz on haswell. If people already have been able to do 5ghz on something like a h100 with nothing but high temps then you should be fine. Remember high core temps doesn't mean it is dumping that much heat out of your case. Just like the GTX400 series cards the 4770k is probably designed to run hot perfectly fine.

I woudn't do this move, 3770k to 4770k is barely noticable as for performance especially for desktop, also you have to change your mobo if you want to upgrade to haswell.

I didn't keep up with the news but does anybody know if haswell is soldered or just glued like Ivy?

If you are really pushing that 3770k or really itching for an upgrade, then pick up a 3930k or 3960 and upgrade to Ivy-e when the time is right. Its supposed to be x79 as well.
