Delid 3570k VS 2500k - Thoughts?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm late to the party but I'm debating upgrading my 2500k (specs in sig). Haswell seems to be a major letdown so I settled on a 3570k Ivy. Apparently delidding offers some amazing temp drops so all in all, do you think this upgrade would be worthwhile for gaming on a watercooled setup?

If you are keeping the z68 mb, i probably would just keep the 2500k. You have your's at 4.8, so you would need the 3570k to be at 4.6 to be around the same. Personally i would just keep the 2500k, but that is me.

I agree with jeffro37. I don't think there's any point in upgrading from your 2500k, especially since you already have a good overclock. Gaming will be the same too, the only noticeable gains you'll see are in benchmarks.

what you are thinking of doing simply cannot be considered an upgrade. it's a waste of time. from a 2500k you should go to an i7 haswell or SB-E. that's pretty much all that makes sense.

For most regular users Sandy probably needs DDR4 and 14 nanometers to make some sense.

Hell, I upgrade from a Sandy Bridge Laptop with an i7 and even for that I think it's an overkill. I mainly need a GPU.

For games your CPU is very good even if you get a golden 3570K that would do 5.2GHz you are looking at maybe +2/3fps if that. Keep your 2500K and upgrade the VGA's to something like 7950 or a GTX770

In the back of my mind I figured this wouldn't be worth it. I'm just really wanting to upgrade and the only logical upgrade would be one of the 6 core sandy's. Not interested in spending 1k on a CPU when I could throw in a few hundred extra and get me a pair of 780's watercooled.

In the front of mind smile.gif since you're gaming, you can probably benefit more from a good GPU than a CPU.

Though if you are good with those - they aren't bad at all - there is no reason.

I get a general "vibe", until 14 nanometers any Sandy will look ok.

stick with i5 2500k you already got decent OC on it and you won't see big performance boost upgrading either ivy or haswell for gaming. instead sell your 560 ti grab gtx 760 sli or 7950 crossfire imo.

In my opinion, Haswell is a worthy step-up from Sandy Bridge speed-wise and feature-wise.
