post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
well ive been running this old 955 phenom II water cooled set up since 2009 and its been great but ive been planning for a new update and i want to go intel this time i was thinking 4770k but i was given a Asus Rampage IV Gene motherboard and its a 2011 mobo so im thinking of going with a 4820k.

so should i go with the 4820k or something else?

if its a cash flow prob then use the motherboard - but if you was going upgrade and was thinking 4770k then go with the latest tech. Sell the motherboard and put the money towards next build.

I would only backtrack if i had to thumb.gif

Umm, the 4820K is newer then the 4770k....

Dont listen to this man OP, yes go for a 4820K. That board is fantastic, but you will need to do a BIOS update before you install the 4820K. LGA 2011 isn't dead yet, in fact I believe that Haswell-e is going to be on 2011 still.

Besides, then later on you can upgrade to a 4930k if you wanted.

So an Ivy Bridge is newer than Haswell?

4820k is same architecture as a 3770k, much like the 3820k is the socket 2011 version of a 2600k. 4820k is newer to market but not newer tech.

With the OP already having the 2011 board, I still agree that the 4820k is a good choice. biggrin.gif

i think i may just go with the 4820k because its cost effective and i like that the heatsink is soldiered so i dont have to worry about delidding, i have the plate to make my water block fit on a 2011 socket so i will be watercooling and overclocking it. i also have an SSD now too.

well either way its going to be a huge improvement compared to my old 955

The positive thing here is that you alreaddy have parts you can use like watercooling stuff smile.gif. You also have a pretty expensive 2011 motherboard. I would get the i7 4820k. Sure the x79 plattform might be dead but that doesnt mean you cant get the cpu to perform similar or even better in games than the future generations i7. If you look around some people claim that game performance with the older i7 (970, 980, x5660, etc) on the 5 year old 1366 plattform is similar in games like the newer i7 (39xx, 49xx).

OP don't listen to this man cos he doesn't know how to read a paragraph - nowhere in my post did i say the chip was older ' I said tech = platform etc '

And man - ADHDadditiv - we can all make mistakes - such as you rolleyes.gif
