ivys IMC is no where as good when compared to haswell14.gif

- No Haswell? There goes 1/3 of the list.
- No AMD? Another 1/3.
- Price is a large concern? OK, no 2011 K-SKU's.
- Wants to overclock? OK, we've now got our results.

Options:
* i5-3570K
* i7-3770K
* i7-3820

Why he didn't just start here I don't know.

Continuing...

- The 3570K is probably not the best choice due to your content creation needs.
- The 3820 is fine, but you're better off with the 3770K due to chip set improvements on Z77 and better overclockability.
- The 3770K is perfectly fine for his needs, but I'll dispute its recommendation below.

Haswell:
Your friends most likely either haven't fully utilized the overclocking potential as it is significantly more delicate and difficult to dial in the best overclock the chip is capable of compared to previous generations, or they got a rare bad chip. Patience and research will get you far with Haswell when preparing to overclock. Continuing, Haswells IMC is significantly better than any of the other options available currently, as others have said. Haswell brings a much better chipset and significantly better IPC performance. Comparing Haswell, Ivy Bridge, Sandy Bridge, and even Sandy Bridge-E purely on raw clock speed is a terrible comparison and a huge no-no. Haswell boards, for the most part, run significantly cooler and usually have higher quality components than their Z77 or socket-2011 counterparts. Haswell only has a bad name because people were ignorant and impatient the first few weeks after release and the misconception has stuck due to misinformation.

AMD:
AMD is perfectly fine for your needs, especially content creation. They overclock well, but do not carry the same level of performance as comparably-tiered Intel chips. Moreover, they are not as cost effective as they were in the past for comparable performance. The 8-core models are still significantly worth considering however.

Personally, I'd recommend a Haswell i7. Good luck with your decision.

The average overclock in my records state a 4.5 or 4.6ghz overclock. When you start multiplying the number by say, 1.10, you need to start at 4.5 or 4.6. Using that, Haswell is doing better than Ivy and Sandy.
