Feedback on upgrading 1090T - Page 2

post #11 of 17
The Crosshair IV is a very solid board actually. Loved when I owned it with a 1100T @ 4.2GHZ.@ 1.45V.
Broke.

what games does the chip fall short or what games do you play?

my thuban at 4GHz never really had problems pushing the 7970. i now have the 7950 with it and same thing, of course.

edit: now, if you plan on adding another card, then the cheapest route is an 8300 chip.

edit: proofs . . .

PHII X 6 4GHz and 7970 stock

BI 1080 Ultra



C2 using Adrenalin



FFXIV



BF3 MP 64 1080 Ultra 4msaa

8350 may be a good choice if you can get one into your current board. If replacing the mb too, I'd skip up to (at least) 3770k.
(And I own an 8350)

Thanks for the feedback all.

I have been considering the 4770K, mobo and memory as a replacement to the core components of my rig, but I've really never gone the Intel route for anything. Is there any reason why anyone would pick the 3770K over the 4770K?

Also, I know that getting an 8350 for my board *might* work, but if it doesn't I'm committed to getting the next board up, i.e. the 990FX chipset. I'm really torn here. Also, there are some issues associated with the ability to do things in BIOS if I stick a PD CPU on it.

3770K may be cheaper than 4770K.

3770K's are more consistent overclockers. Most achieve around 4.5ghz. Whereas 4770Ks are more hit-and-miss, many are getting 4.5ghz+ while others are stuck at 4.0-4.2...

Are the improvements between 890 and 990 big enough to warrant a change?
The mobo I test it on was a 6+2 power phase and the CHIV is 8+2.

This This This.

2500k's can be had for cheap and so can their motherboard counterparts (good ones, too). They run cool, almost all overclock very well and can handle any situation you give them. A friend of mine who composes music for films and games professionally asked me to build him a computer for that job and maybe for the odd game, but 99% music composing. I got him a i5-2500k and an Asus m-ITX Z77 motherboard (absolutely incredible board, very powerful and has an add-on VRM 12-Phase Board. Can't remember the name off the top of my head of the Motherboard itself!) and it absolutely blasts through the huge pieces of music he would compose and put together. Some instruments would be huge in quality and size (2-3GB per instrument at times, though the program efficiently manages how and when it's used in regards to RAM, but still very intensive CPU wise and RAM wise), and it has no problems what so ever. He actually hit the program's limits in regards to how much he could put into the music, which before he would never get near on his old, slow laptop that stuttered doing anything on the music programs. All this and it's still at stock, and there's no need to overclock. We ran prime on the most intense settings and had him compose a really hefty bit of music from start to finish at the same time and it still didn't struggle at all. Beautiful system with a very beautiful CPU.

The CPU will do very well against bottlenecks as most on here will agree, especially once overclocked. 4.5Ghz is the sweet spot for most, and boy does it fly.
