Going from LGA775 to Haswell?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi!

It's been a while since I've last been on here rolleyes.gif Used to run a pretty active E5200 thread around here, which has since my inactivity gone lived a life of its own. Anyways I'm still running that rig biggrin.gif So it might be time to upgrade tongue.gif Beyond that I might have some time this summer in the midst of my summer job to even do some overclocking. So I'm really looking for you guys to fill me in on the loop and give me some suggestions on what might be a good buy in i5 Haswell in terms of overclocking. Based on what I have read so far overclockability hasn't been the best on Haswell? So should I perhaps go for Ivy Bridge instead? Obviously it's worlds apart from 775 given the major changes that came in architecture with the first i7s redface.gif I'm trying not to spend too much on the upgrade; somewhere in the range of about 600€ for mobo, chip, ram and maybe a gfx.

So long story short what CPU should i get for the best overclockability? And would the Asus Z87-A (or something similar) qualify as a decent board?

Thanks in advance smile.gif

I think if I were you I would go Haswell. From my Sandy Bridge perspective, I look at Ivy Bridge or Haswell neither are impressive from an overclocking standpoint. So I would get Haswell just for the IPC improvements (not to mention the pricing difference is insignificant most of the time). So then you would basically be picking between the i5-4670K or the i7-4770K.

Both Ivy and Haswell were not good for overclock. It's more luck than anything.

If you overclock, they will pretty much hit the same 4.5 wall, and maybe better if you delid, crappy glue and paste..

Haswell does give you more options to fiddle with, such as the BLCK, it's not going to help much but you get something more to try.

Btw only the K ones will OC, others can't, not even a few bins up.

Alright, so a 4670K would be my best bet?

If you don't need 8 threads, yes.

3.4 GHz to 4.7 GHz on my 3570K on a lower end board is pretty good in my book. But what do I know...

Based on your conversations with others, you believe that's a typical overclock?
