Help me choose, about to order tonight! - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I spent yesterday afternoon delidding a ivy 3570k just to get past 4.4 on that hot POS with water, and as far as I'm aware haswell is hotter again....yet the last 2500k I came In
contact with we got to 4.6 on air...(cheap ocz cooler)

Honestly unless your planning on delidding and don't mind the power increase (haswell is more economical at stock clocks, but has the highest wattage jump so far after that point)
I would not bother with haswell at all...

If you want an actual upgrade your best bet is a sb-e or ib-e chip.

K,

I feel like I'm swimming in ****screek...no good hardware to jump on at a reasonable price. Everything but the Intel 6 cores seems a sidegrade, crappy OC (probably frustrating I assume).
Buying Ivy here in Canada right now is not interesting...no fire sales. The stuff is pretty much the same price as Haswell. and buying socket 1155 today is hearthbreaking...forking hard-earned money on EOL socket at regular price?
