Haswell vs Devil's Canyon K series purchase help

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So, I've been waiting for a nice deal to pop up on the internet for a 4790K, or a 4690K if the price was sweet; yet no luck. So I decided to browse eBay for some CPUs, then it got me thinking that, "why not take a look at the older 4670K's and the 4770K's?", and what do you know? They are there and for pretty darn cheap as compared to their evolved brothers.

So, my question is, would there be any real difference between those two generations?

The older haswell are more of a gamble when it comes to overclocking. That's about the only difference.

For the 4770k the temps are going to get higher quicker, and your overclock will be limited as a result if you bought a DC chip, which are usually 5Ghz chips. the 4770k is a 4.5Ghz average chip. Your best bet would be the x99 platform, with a 5820k at least, its somewhat futureproof the x99 mobo being able to handle a Xeon 22 core, and the newer 10 core skylake chip if you decide to upgrade later. If you go with 4790k, there's no room to upgrade the chip if you want a more powerful one later on.

Upgrading from a G3258 on a Z97, so I'll be sticking to this socket.

ok then, mabey check out the xeon 4 core processors and see if there is a deal on those. Actually the haswell and DC processors dont even need overclocking at this time to run things, overclocking is sort of a future-proofing thing for later on, check out the "should I upgrade my 2500k?" article, for DC that will be in another 3 years before you may want to overclock it, before retiring it to server status in 5-8 years.

Any idea on which model Xeon I should be looking at? I'm looking to OC the CPU from the get-go. If the Xeon can't do that, I'll skip it.

You can't overclock the xeons (well, you can increase to their turbo clock and maybe get a tiny bit from the blk)

no deals right now for any 1150 xeon.

There is a Microcenter a little over an hour away from you in Orange County. They have 4790k for $300, pickup at store.
