Hi all!

I'm yet to build my system and i'm having troubles deciding on which processor to go with...My activities will be heavy computational work and light mid gaming.Intel just released their new generation and to be honest I'm not happy with Haswell...5% - 10% difference?And what happened to PROCESSOR only CPU's.Yes I can see that APU's are the future but the graphics right now can't be compared to high end dedicated graphic cards.I was going to go for the Xeon range but I cannot overclock the chip and driver support must be slow.

I was hoping that you all could help me decide on which CPU to get.

Thanks in advance

[Edit] Sorry if I mislead people thinking that I don't want to overclock, I meant You cannot overclock the Xeon chips.

Normally I would be on the fence for an answer but since you said no OC I vote 4770K. With them both overclocked the Ivy can match the Haswell. With both at stock the Haswell will be slightly faster. As long as higher cost doesn't matter to you that is. If cost is a real factor then 3770K all the way.

Tough one, but I would say go for the 3770k. I know Ivy is hot but recent threads ive seen on here show the 4770k somehow runs even hotter, and unacceptably hotter too, like best part of 100c at 1.2v?

3770k
Cheaper, Mobos are cheaper too.
1% difference between the two cpus.

Not mention that when you decide to delid the 3770k will do better on OCing!

I vote haswell. Might wana oc slightly in the future no harm. But mainly ur investing in a new socket. That will support future intel cpus, so instead of upgrading everything, all you have to do is change cpu(broadwell iirc).

How realistic is that tho? Seems like features improve w/each gen chip, meaning you need a new board to take advantage. IE Ivy wouldn't work on z68 unless you had a newer Gen3 board.

I say go with the cheaper option (3770k) unless you'll use the more advanced igpu Haswell offers.

I believe we are at the stage now where 99% of us wouldn't realistically have needed to upgrade from a 2600k, as 3770k>4770k is not much different.

I doubt the next intel cpu is going to be a huge performance increase either.

I was voting for the 3770k until i heard light gaming and no overclocking. sorry guys ^^ but i voted for haswell aswell (waw that rhymed). As a newer chip out of the box i believe the 4770k is a better chip, but when you get overclocking into the mix I would suggest the 3770k due to what i've read online about haswell's overclocking.good luck with your purchase / decision.

Very well stated! All the chips that you stated perform superb. The only reason to change is just to play with different hardware.

That's a load of bs. The difference between the 3770k and the 4770k is between 5-20% depending on the benchmark so since you said you're going to be doing a lot of computational work, any benefit is worth it. Once you delid haswell, you will see just as good temps as ivy delidded basically so you'll have the same amount of OC potential, temps wise. A 4770k at 4.8ghz (which is very attainable) is on par performance wise with a 3770k at 5.1ghz (which is a lot harder) so if you have the extra $30 I would definitely go with Haswell as it also offers an upgrade path whereas ivy is a dead socket.
