3770k or 4770k

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm upgrading, I've waited way too long but it seem it wasn't worth my time. Should I get a 4770k or a 3770k? Haswell seem to have an average oc way lower then an ivy, what to do? I'll be ocing with a h220 so temps should be decent.

If you find a 3770k for less money, go for that. If not, I don't see why you shouldn't get Haswell.

Haswell is brand spanking new, what do you think is better? Don't be a jerk to people if you don't want people to be a jerk back.

If you want the chip that will OC the best then your going to want Sandy Bridge or Sandy Bridge-E, if its between Ivy Bridge or Haswell personally I would get Haswell, the motherboards do look very good and its a bump in performance although its sub 20% increase comparing stock clocks.

The question is witch is the best.
depends, that is not a one or the other question.

if you already have the 1155 hardware then no need to go for 1150 and Haswell, just not worth it.

and if buying all new hardware then I hope you have been paying attention to all the reviews about Haswell and limited overclocking,
power supply compatibility / sleep state issues with Haswell.
not to mention it actually runs slightly hotter and slightly more power but, it is the newer tech and people like that..

what's your current hardware situation.?


edit:
and to be honest the best chip right now to me is a delidded 3770K.

Looking at the clock speeds alone is pointless. Haswell is faster than Ivy clock for clock, meaning for example that Haswell at 4Ghz is equivalent to Ivy at 4.2Ghz. The exact same thing as it was when Ivy came out. So definitely go Haswell as it is faster and better in every way.

Buying old tech is hardly ever the better option.

I'm upgrading from amd 955, so it's new mobo and new cpu. Im aware of the c6/c7 power state, they can be disable and my power supply will work with it

But it seems that only "30% of CPUs can clock to 4.6GHz" (straight out of HardOCP review page 6) So only 1/3 of the cpu can pass 4.6, what the % of ivy that can hit 4.8 then? That's the question I'm asking. Max oc performance, considering the silicone lottery and that i'm using an h220 as a cpu cooler: ivy vs haswell Witch would make more sens? Cause if 50% of ivy can do 5.0 Ghz then it's a no brainner ivy is just plain out better. But if you tell me hitting 4.7-4.8 is as hard as hitting 4.4-4.5 on haswell then both are the same performance wise. I have no clue about ivy numbers because I didn't pay attention for that. I've seen a lot of 5.0 Ghz on ivy but maybe because everyone and their cat have the cpu so i'm nut sure. I don't really know if you can disable the Igpu and reduce heat on haswell to get better performance too since less heat.

delidded 3770K = FTW..
I say that because the jury out on Haswell is too soon to be judged..

how longer I need to wait for a clear jury?
