Only 4 GHz? That's just a 200 MHz overclock (stock turbo is 3.8 GHz).

 

What motherboard do you have?

 

What do you have for CPU cooling?

 

What's the brand and the exact model of your power supply?

 

(the 3570K could be a little faster with higher minimum speeds and framerates, but you wouldn't have hyperthreading anymore)

 

 

Edit: Oh, that's not a 2600K.

that's it.
Well, having owned SB/IB/Haswell i5's and i7's I'd have a tough time deciding too, but I guess i'd go for 3570K cause it seems your 2600 is locked (right?).
3570K advantages:
1) can be overclocked, I'd try for 4700MHz/4800MHz to really put the pedal to the metal
2)better IMC - can run 2400MHz memory,which also has a nice impact on min fps
3)PCI-E 3.0 - can have a minimal impacet on fps but more importantly lets you run 8x-8x multi GPU config 2x faster.

The disadvantage of 3570K is that it needs really good cooling to reach that overclock since it doesn't use solder under IHS. Other than that I think a 4.8GHz 3570K with 2400 RAM will smoke 2600 out of the water in min fps,should also be better when it comes to avg fps.
The decision would be up to your pereception of fps drops - if you experience them in games and would like to do sth about it then OC'd 3570K might provide the remedy.

For overclocking safety, what is the brand and exact model of your power supply?

whoa,take that 3570K and shoot for no less than 4.9GHz.
Also, be aware of the asrock z77 vcore bug.

how about i upgrade to 4690 non k and z97 is it worth it?
post #10 of 11
I'd be foolish not to go with unlocked i5. you've got good cooling (you may think about new push/pull fans for even better performance), great board (I myself had z77 extreme 4,and although it's got the vcore bug and some sources question the vrm quality it let me run 2500K at 5150MHz game stable), your PSU is v.good too.

non-K ? forget it. an oc'd 3570k will trash it. if you want an upgrade there's a Haswell Xeon, I don't quite recall the name, with 4c/8t for not much more than 4690. It's locked but it's a HT Haswell for good money.

Okay,I was thinking of
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117316&cm_re=xeon-_-19-117-316-_-Product

$25 more than 4690 but has HT,so it's basically same as 4790 for $50 less. I think it doesn't have an iGPU.
