Really? Grow up. Using less power is an advantage and I understand it is trivial savings depending on what your doing and what website we are on. So does everyone else.

Also since I am already talking towards you, you would be very wrong in stating 2133 made a hell of a difference. Unless hell of a difference means marginal.

Thanks for that not helpful at all addition to this thread.

Please do leave.

And I bet there are plenty that care about power consumption. Especially if you use it for more then just gaming.

Yea sorry I forgot to add to the thread b/c I was responding to stay puft. I would upgrade as others have said for the upgrade with the chipset. Also would only upgrade if your willing to delid imo. Haswell will be faster in everything unless your 970 overclocks like crazy and the haswell you get is a dud.

Yea delidding is way above what I'm capable of.

And that is also where I'm stuck. I want to watercool, and OC my cpu, but I'm not sure which one would do better.

I might buy a new case for everything, and a self contained loop and try the 970, and see how it OC's. If it is too low, and can't do any better then I will take everything out, and put it in my old case. Then upgrade the new case.

Delid is the way to GO.. biggrin.gif

You're missing out on -20C temp, and +300-500mhz on top of 4.5ghz

Can you delid a 970. Nevermind. I think it's called lapping?
post #27 of 27
Yea you can lap it. It will provide you around 5 degree drop depending on how concave it is or not. Plus it looks great to see a mirror finish. biggrin.gif
