In Market for new CPU

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 2700k that may have reached the end of its life due to years of overclocking.. Even if I can get a few more months out of it I think its time to work on getting a new CPU and Mobo while I still have a few bucks in my pocket. I have a full water loop with a Raystorm and I have the AMD bracket if I choose to go AMD.

I am looking for something that can be overclocked.. If I stay Intel I would get the Haswell 4 Core i4770k I think it is. I will not delid it, but put what overclock I can on the chip safely.

The reason for this post is that I am thinking maybe an AMD chip this time.. As the video cards are AMD (2x) 280x and I am warming up to AMD.. But still on the fence..

I guess I want to stay in the realm of a $280 chip and around a $200 mobo.. What do you guys think I should get??

I was just looking at the FX chip if I were to go over the AMD.. Microcenter has a bundle on cpu/mobo..

Are any of these board comparable?

GigabyteGA-990FXA-UD3 Socket AM3+ 990FX ATX
Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 Socket AM3+ 990FX ATX
Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ ATX
Asrock 990FX Extreme9 ATX AM3+

This is the note on the AMD version of the mount I have "Supports Sockets AM2, AM3, FM1"
Does that work? I dont see a AMD3+

There are no AMD CPUs that are faster than an overclocked 2700K.

Just go with a 4770K, going with AMD would be a downgrade from your current CPU...

I agree with Alatar. Going from Sandy Bridge i7 to FX 9590 is a downgrade. Anything less than i7 4770K won't be much of an upgrade to you even when your CPU is at stock.
At stock the 9590 might perform close enough to a stock i7 2700K in multi-threaded stuff, and will be left behind significantly in apps that are not multi-threaded. 2700K @ 4.5 GHz will leave the 9590 in the dust, considering the 9590 is already at its max out of the box with almost no headroom left for OCing.

If you can wait just a little longer, the Haswell refresh (Devil's Canyon) is releasing on May 11. They are rumored to have a soldered IHS again like Sandy, so they hopefully won't have heat problems like Ivy/Haswell.

Unless I am mistaken or new info has come out... I thought that non-k models were first out and the K would follow later this year.

I thought the person who wrote one of the last articles was mistaken.. Has it been confirm that the "K" will be out May 10th?
