Sure, but that's true for Haswell and DC too.
Not exact numbers, just for demonstration but they should be fairly accurate.
4770k runs at 95c, drops to 70c with delid.
4790k runs at 85c. Drops to 70c with delid.
6700k runs at 70c. Drops to 55c with delid.
See how it's cooler?
The TIM is not good at all but the temperature is far, far lower.
temperature is not heat.
Temperature is not heat, but in this case the temperature has dropped. I'm not bothering to measure the actual heat output in watts at the moment - it doesn't matter to most people as long as you know approximately what it is. It's temps and voltages that decide OC's
Average used price to temp? (I've been awake 30 hours, please don't make me do math)...
For someone who has say... an FX-6350 that's bottlenecking the absolute crap out of everything with a 970, which generation is it most worth my money to get?
I play BF4, Civilization V, and some other simulation games.
I WILL overclock whatever chip I get to it's absolute limit on an NH-D15 with as much voltage as I can use without throttling or killing it. My 6350 was on 1.52v for a while so you know I'm serious. I don't care about safety or chip degradation whatsoever. Just the overclock.
(Yes I will be delidding, though it will be my first time).
So a 4770k is probably a bad choice. What about 3770k? I might get the i5 variant of whatever you suggest due to budget constraints. I have a 3570k sitting right here, but I don't want to keep it. I'm only ruling out Sandybridge as it doesn't have the features on the chipset I want. Everything else is open. I have a leaning towards DC because I acquired an ASUS z-97 PRO for $80 (broken audio I don't need). So that's something to consider... but I'm RMAing it anyway so I could sell it.
This is not exactly off topic either. My point is for you it's wasteful to invest with these miniscule performance upgrades unless you like the temp difference, but for someone as far behind as me it's wide open, but neither do I have unlimited money.
