Thread Starter 
i've heard the 4770k is quite hot compared to the 3770k

for my upcoming build, i'll be doing a custom loop and i'd of course like to overclock to take advantage of it

i'd like to get the highest performance i can, but also reasonable temps

question is, which should i go for?

When I overclocked my CPU, I only changed the turbo speed from 39 to 48, let everything in auto and seems to run fine at 1.2 volts. I've read articles and guides on how to overclock, and most say never to trust auto.

SInce this method workes fine for me, should I bother trying to manually adjust everything for my 4.8 overclock?

I'm using a 3770k with a Gigabyte UP4 motherboard.

I havn't had a chance to compare a 4770k to a 3770k, but I say go for it, especially since you're gonna be using a custom loop.

I do recommend haswell over ivy. Most of the time they clock around same.

They are really so close to performance i would look at what is the cheaper option right now, of course the haswell is newer and a little faster.

If you live in the states this price is pretty good right now for the 3770k.
