Time to upgrade, what to choose? - not the first time ive asked it. :D

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hah, asked it few times on this forum, but never did an actual socket upgrade, but now i will definetely upgrade.
I can get 3770k and 4770k for around the same price where im from, proces arent dropping, = money lost for them.
I was leaning towards the 4770k just because its a newer tech, but ive heard only bad things about haswell, - doesnt clock that high, or same, but has some serious heat issues.
My near retailers havent got the mobos just yet, but are they any more expensive than z77 lauched prices? Because that can be why i may go to 3770k. I would like to hear your debate ivy vs haswell and some 4770k pros and cons.

The Z87 motherboards should cost roughly the same as Z77. Maybe $10-20 higher here and there because of launch prices overall but more or less the same. Even though Haswell doesn't overclock as well as Ivy, which in turn didn't overclock as well as Sandy (both mainly due to heat issues), an i7 4770K is still a better buy because it performs better per clock and with adequate cooling you should still be able to get a good 4.5-4.7Ghz OC, which more or less is what most Ivy chips hit anyway. Even if it is 100-200Mhz less on the OC, the architecture compensates by being faster per clock so in the end the 4770K would still probably give you a quantifiable performance improvement.

Although Haswell is still pretty disappointing from an enthusiast's point of view, given that you're coming from an i5 760, it's still the only logical upgrade.

i agree, i am building a new system from scratch, and have chosen to go haswell with a 4770k. the reason is that for only $30 more for the processor, i get a chip which will perform better (clock for clock) and hopefully give the ability, since it is a newer socket, to upgrade in the future. the haswell boards also seem to have a lot better tech for the same price as Z77 boards (roughly)

3770k is tried and true, and we know the limits of the chip. 4770k is new and different, so we don't know exactly what we can push it to. if the newer chip is only $30 more than the older one, then i can't see a reason not to get the newest and best for the "heart" of your computer.

i guess if you went 3770k (still adequate) you could put another $30 towards your graphics card and the system might outperform the haswell one then tongue.gif

you can delid the 4570 so i think the 4770k can to (99% sure) a guy on this site did it. so if you want to go that way i would recommend it also i was thinking that you mite want ot go with a ssd as it was the best think to speed up the pc. also samsung wonder ram is Great, i got mine to 2000 mhz @ 1.5 volts but the qpi on my old x58 was to high so I am back to stock 8-8-8-24 t1 from 10-10-10-28 - 2 @ stock volt 1.35.

edit... im going to try for 6 core cpu as i think intel is falling with only 4 core cpu i want to grab a cheap 970-980x i seen thos for $300 as i think that is better for me. Only thing i would want a new cpu for is lower power draw as my cpu @ 4ghz is like 200 watts draw the 580 overclock is like 200 watts. i would love a 780gtx with full water block smile.gif

but ya ssd is 1st thing i think you need to upgrade then mobo/cpu/ram and look up delid the 4570/4770k guy seen a 18deg drop in cpu @ same volts same cooler just intel did a crap job on tim again like 3570 and 3770k

Seems like im not having 4770k afterall, but 4670k its 120 $ diffrence, thats too huge for HT in my opinion, and invest the money in the gpu.
Edit- I believe 4670k overclocks ~ same as 3570k?
And what haswell mobo do you recomend?
Im looking at GA-Z87X-D3H vs GA-Z87X-UD3H
