i7 4770k vs i5 4670k (iGPU)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is the i7 worth the extra money over the i5 ? i wish to build a rig right now with integrated graphics because iam in a low budget, also what mobo would be good for overclocking those?

The iGPU should be the same on both chips, and since you say you are on a budget, go with the i5.

As for mobo, I'll let someone else chime in on that.

While both the i5-4670K and i7-4770K both have HD 4600 graphics, the 4770's IGP is clocked slightly faster (1.2GHz vs 1.25GHz). The actual real-world difference would still be minimal.

As for a good motherboard, it's hard to give a precise answer without knowing your budget and/or location. Assuming that you're Stateside, my recommendation would be the i5-4670K + Gigabyte's GA-Z87X-UD3H (currently sold as a combo @ Newegg for $340.)

If you are really on a tight budget then you can go for a Asrock H87 mobo and use a feature they have that allow overclocking o that 4670k. That feature is only availble on Asrock boards so far.

thanks for the great info guys, but iam sorry i do not understand quite well what this feature does, can someone explain? as for overclocking, would that chip (i5) reach the same max performance as the i7 when both are fully clocked? i read somewhere that haswell has overclocking problems, is that true?

It comes down to the silicon lottery for how well they overclock. It's completely out of your control. The i7's tend to need a bit more voltage than the i5's because of hyper threading. Unless your planning on rendering videos/pictures, or other things that can take advantage of the extra i7 threads, save your money and just stick with the i5.

+1 to 100cottons advice. Stick with 4670k. I7s come into their own when you are using graphics software and the like.

Intel officially support over clocking using a z87 chipset mobo and a k series cpu however as rock have found a way to implement over clocking using H87 chipset mobos with K CPUs.

H87 mobos are cheaper. The feature is called non Z OC. Z chip set mobos have other worthwhile features as well like additional data/USB ports, better power management and are better for multugpu setups so I personally would still go for a z87 mobo.
