In cpu bound games there may be some bottleneck, but honestly what are you going to do about it? there's nothing really faster to buy then a 4.6ghz 3770k.....

Will do nothing for you, the games you are seeing a bottleneck in will only use a couple of threads, and more won't help. Not to mention x79, like Ivy Bridge E will only show a 5-10% performance increase *IF YOU CAN EVEN GET IT TO 4.6ghz, NO GUARANTEE*

I'd say just ignore your cards not being maxed out in certain games, as long as you're getting good performance, if your not it may be some other issue.

Yeah because the cores vary... Eg compare a i5 3570k and 4570K. 4570K will beat it at same clocks.

But the cores don't vary in the example being discussed.

Ivy-E has exactly the same core architecture as Ivy. The L3 cache is larger and there is more I/O, but the cores are virtually identical.

Ivy and Ivy-E perform almost exactly the same core for core, clock for clock. A few applications that are exceptionally sensitive to L3 cache size will run faster on the Ivy-E, but otherwise, it's the same.

Your 3570k vs 4670k is a different matter because it's Ivy vs Haswell, not Ivy vs. Ivy.
