I return my haswell purchase

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have i5 3570k

Haswell seems not much gain for much money $550
purchase for mb, cpu and h110

I think I will wait for new cpu or new amd cpu, intel
so stupid to put vrm inside cpu, incredible heat.

Low power for normal user, great!

I am not normal user. :-/

True. If you want stunning results on ivy/haswell you need to de-lid. And if you got sandy/ivy there is no reason to upgrade this time

And the 2700k is still only about $20 less than the 3770k, at least here in Sweden. CPU's don't really drop a lot in prices with the release of a new generation.

Going from Ivy to Haswell is pretty pointless, unless you were going to upgrade your motherboard and go for an i7 from an i5 anyway.
