return 4770k?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I haven't even received it in the mail yet and I'm already feeling like I should return my z87 board and 4770k. I have z77 and 2500k, should I just return the new stuff, I'm feeling like fro ma gaming perspective I'm not going to see much of a difference, or overclocking I see the 4770k overclocks like **** from reviews. Anyone else have an opinion on this.

As someone who has a 4770K its not worth it for gaming but dont listen to just the reviews. This processor is very fast

Yeah it's not a huge upgrade but it's still a fast chip.
At least you'll get pci-e 3.0 and real sata 3 ports etc with the upgrade.

I've copy/pasted this a few times so far but heres a quick comparison I did when upgrading.
Still haven't got around to clocking up the 4770k yet but even at stock its just edging out my 2500k @ 4.8

Far cry 2 benches, sli gtx 670s at stock (122% power target): 2560x1440, 120Hz, 8x MSAA, Ultra Details.

Average results over 3 runs.

2500K Stock
  • Average Framerate: 133.60
  • Max. Framerate: 210.22
  • Min. Framerate: 95.48

2500K @ 4.8Ghz
  • Average Framerate: 153.02
  • Max. Framerate: 241.33
  • Min. Framerate: 113.34

4770K Stock
  • Average Framerate: 155.94
  • Max. Framerate: 247.14
  • Min. Framerate: 116.86

Plus, don't get a good chip? Then fry it up.

So I'm taking from your statement the way you said at least you'll get 3.0 saturation is that you think I should keep the items. Either way thank you i asked for your opinion. Also i meant the last sentence as positive not sarcasm, i know it sounded weird the way it was worded. I also was thinking that before I wrote this about the extra lane bandwidth. IO guess clock for clock it is faster also. i want to see it succeed and I would like to keep them but money wise I was feeling like its not worth it. i was looking for a bunch of feedback on comparison to what I have. Do you think the new board will be better than mine. I have z77x-ud5h, I just bought z87x-ud3h, with 4770k, I have 2500k Now. I was see lots of improvements on the bios level for gigabyte that looked promising. I'm just not sure yet if performance and overclocking wise if its worth the upgrade. Might just keep the because my z77x-ud5h and 2500k suck, I;m only getting 4.2 at 1.3 volts, and that to my knowledge is a below average chip. Maybe ill hit lottery with my 4770k, I will have to post results.

Didn't you know from the start that the 4770K is a minor upgrade over your 2500K for gaming? It's been speculated as such from the very beginning.

If you intend on doing any multi-threaded tasks that can take advantage of hyper threading, the 4770K would be a substantial upgrade.

Do give it a go first.

2500K 4.2 at 1.3 is definitely a crappy o'c so you may easily end up liking the 4770K combo much more.

Yeah I knew this, what I was saying was that my 2500k sucks and I got a horrible chip, at this point maybe I wont return it because i might get a way better chip than my 2500k, it really sucks. I'm at 4.2 at 1.3 volts and my system is barley stable at 1600mhz ram. Also YES I'm using xmp and right ram voltage for my ram. When my system tries to sleep it power cycles 100 times and says its unstable. Yet I can run prime 95 for 1 days straight. So idk if my board sucks or my CPU , but I think its my CPU cause a 2500k on average should do way better than 1.3 volts at 4.2! So I'm hoping my 4770k is golden.

Mate even if your 4770k is a stinker it's going to smash your 2500k at those clocks.
It's matching my 2500k that did 4.8Ghz on 1.32V although it does run hotter.
Can't wait to see what it can do when pushed!

Mind you it took me 3 or 4 goes at getting a good 2500k.
Hope I don't burn through too many 4770s....
This one seems pretty sub par so far but I don't know how to work all the different voltages yet to tweak it up so I still have hope smile.gif
