Hello all,

Currently I have a 3570k which is overclocked to 4.3Ghz @1.27 volts @64 degrees C. I will be building a new computer in a few months (was planning on a 4670k and a 780 ti), but I know haswell can be hit or miss when it comes to overclocking. I know my current processor is a good overclocker (currently I have a h60 in push pull on it and my new computer will eventually be fully watercooled- I have an enthoo primo case for the new one). I feel I could maybe get it to 4.5Ghz or more with appropriate cooling.

My question is: do I keep my current processor (putting it in the new PC) and just buy another 3570k to replace it? Or do I get a 4670k for the new PC (and risk it not being a good overclocker) and keep my current 'golden chip' 3570k in the old computer for when I sell it?

Thanks for any opinions-

Here's my new PC build if anyone is interested:

Phanteks Enthoo Primo
Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H (or appropriate Z77 motherboard)
4670k (or my current 3570k)
Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti Windforce
Kingston Hyperx CL10 8GB Red
Corsair RM850 (and red induvidually braided cables)
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
Western Digital 1TB
Windows 7 HP/Prof (on a usb)
Hyper 212+ (or other basic CPU cooler until I fully watercool)

0 point in going from ivy to haswell. I would just watercool the one you have and buy the 780ti if that is what you want.

It would just be upgrading for the sake of upgrading. I'd wait one, maybe even two more generations before upgrading the CPU again.
Just go for the 780Ti as HardwareDecoder above me also suggested tongue.gif

Right now you will not see much of a difference (especially if you're overclocked) . I'd keep the 3570k and wait for the next generation of chips.

Ok, thanks guys, I guess I'll just get another 3570k and swap them out.

Wouldn't upgrade the CPU if u have a good one, maybe delid and custom loop to give it a but more bite and a new GPU. Also consider ddr4 coming out this year

ddr4 is not a big leap in performance at all, and is gonna be stupid over priced.
