Tell me again why I went Haswell :)

post #1 of 5

So in summary if you already have a decent IB and don't need oodles of SATA 6G ports, AVX2, FMA3, or the desire to take a hammer to your shiny new Haswell, stay with IB.

Just the opinion of one person who owns 2 of each.

Oh and I will have some gaming comparisons up at a later time.

You already knew it before getting haswell, you just like to play with new toys biggrin.gif

The z87 boards are more fun than z77 at least. All those new memory settings...

You went Haswell because you wanted to overclock it and tinker with it yourself and not take everyone's word for it. I personally went with it because this was my first build and it just made sense to go with the latest tech. I fortunately did alright in the silicone lottery, and it appears that you did pretty well with at least one of your chips, though I don't know what your goal was.
