it is definitely worth upgrading to a i7 4770k from a i7 2600k - Page 3

post #21 of 54
If this is your first build, does that mean your 2600K had stock cooler? It could be that the 2600k was overheating and throttling. A stock 2600k with decent cooling should have no problem with CoD.

I meant Windows re-install. I ask because as many people have pointed out, a 2600k isn't a hard bottleneck for any currently available CoD, or any game I can think of for that matter. Unless there was some kind of PCI-E bandwidth problem going on I cant see how a 4770k would alleviate stuttering. Same Geforce drivers before and after?

Did you have those two 780s with the 2600k and still have problems? No offense but something just doesn't add up here.... 2600k is still a pretty damn good CPU imo.

What they are saying is that a 2600K should be more than enough to run any COD game out there. If you purchased a 4770K and reinstalled everything at the same time, you changed two variables, but are stating that one of them definitively fixed your problem. Even if a 2600K bottlenecked your SLI 780s, COD shouldn't have been effected by it, and your problem likely lied elsewhere.

Something was wrong other than the CPU. There's not that much difference between a 2600K and a 4770K, especially with two 780's installed. There's actually very little that would justify any upgrade from an i7 2600K unless you're moving up to an Intel enthusiast platform.

No, the "K" extension only removes VT-d and unlocks the multiplier. Stock turbo boost functions identically. Getting a "Z" motherboard I agree with though because generally they're higher quality and better laid out for SLI etc. That and they usually look sexier.

http://www.pugetsystems.com/blog/2011/06/09/h67-p67-and-z68-which-one-is-right-for-you/

I don't know how accurate that article is but apparently:

H : Limited overclocking, iGPU can be used, no SLI/XFIRE
P: Better overclocking , no iGPU, SLI/XFIRE possible
Z: (2nd)Highest end, best overclocking , iGPU can be used, SLI/XFIRE possible + some additonal stuff
X: For extreme CPUs

But the turbo boost should be the same on all chipsets.

yes I did have a after market cooler on my i7 2600k but when I took the cpu out of the socket to sell it I noticed the thermal paste that was put on it was gone you think it could have been a cooling problem ?
