[WANTED] Intel i7-2600k or 2700k

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi guys,

I'm looking to upgrade my i5-2500k.

I just got 2 AMD HD7950's and I tried to play BF3 at 1440p at 120hz and my CPU just isn't good enough.

So, I'm either looking to buy the i7 outright or I am willing to trade my 2500k + cash for your i7.

My i5 was purchased May 2011 and has been running at 4.5GHz ever since without any issues (except now it's bottlenecking my GPUs),

PM me with price. condition, and overclockability.

Thanks guys!

I have a 2700k at 4.7GHz, and I can't reliably play BF3 at 120fps at 1080p. GTX Titan on the GPU side.

I think we need 6 cores.

I have a 3770K @ 4.6 GHz and two 680's oced to 1370 MHz, sometimes fps drop to 80 and go as high as 170, but mostly stays over 120, battlefield is a tricky game, specially in multiplayer and huge maps, does not use HT as far as I know

I dont think hyperthreading will do much of a difference, you shouldnt be bottlenecking the GPUs, try to clock it higher, maybe 4.7 Ghz.

Interesting, so bf3 doesnt use HT? How does that work? To the OS, the i7s appear as 8 cores and I believe HT is inplemented as a hardware level and abstracted away by the time the OS sees it iirc. The only reason it wouldnt work with bf3 is if bf3 only utilizes 4 cores. Someone corrext me if I'm wrong.

In any case, thanks for the replies guys, I guess I gotta do more reseaech into this. I'll try 1080p 120hz although it should be possible even with 1 gpu since with 1 gpu I can hit 1440 80hz with about 80-90% cpu use

in my experience, MP does use the extra cores or HT. happened to both my rig. when i turn off HT in BF3 MP my minimum fps drops.

edit: i must admit . . . never once did i see my i7 pushed both gpus (stock) to their max in any map in BF3. not that i always watched it.

Question, what resolution + refresh rate are you running at? I have a feeling that 1440p + 120Hz is just too much for my CPU.

I'm still actually in shock that I'm hitting a CPU bottleneck. Never in a thousand years would I have thought that...

In any case, I'm still interested in an i7, so PM me with offers!
