Should I upgraded? LGA1155 to an LGA1151 for my 1440p 144Hz monitor

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I recently bought a 1440p 144Hz monitor and an MSI 980 ti Gaming GPU.

Right now I have an Asus P8Z77-V(LGA1155) mobo with an Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz CPU. I have the stock overclock settings turned on on the mobo so I think it hits 4GHz+ while gaming


I'm thinking of buying an Asus Z170-Delux (LGA1151) with an Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz and use the stock overclocking and maybe tweak it a bit more on my own.

Do you think this upgrade is worth it because of my upgraded gaming monitor?

I don't think it's worth it really. You'd have to do an entire arch, mem, and chipset change over just for small gains. If you want to have a viable upgrade, get a 3770K.

Do you think this upgrade is worth it because of my upgraded gaming monitor?

Depending on your cooler (eg it isn't a stock cooler) and mobo, I would look for a guide and see if you can overclock that i5 a bit more before upgrading. If you can hit 4.4 or so and you still want to upgrade, selling your current CPU+Mobo+Ram will definitely help offset the cost and I think either the 6600k or the 6700k should be a solid jump. Also, if you can get your ram speeds (not shown so IDK what brand/frequency they are already at) up to 1866/2133+ it should also help.

 

On a side note, I went from a 2600k at 4.4 to a 4770k at 4.5 and I didn't notice much of a difference (390 stock clocks). Only reason I did was because I wanted to go from ATX to MATX and couldn't find a good board for the 2600k (that and the guy that bought my 2600k overpaid for it by quite a bit).

 

As NexusRed stated, a 3770k should be a solid boost, but again you should find a guide to overclock. 

 

Realistically, it all depends on how much you want to spend. A 3770k upgrade will cost ~70-100 depending on how much you pay for a used one and how much you get for your i5 [always make sure to pay with paypal to cya and sell your i5 after you make sure the used cpu works so your pc is not unusable if it doesn't work]. CPUs are pretty hard to kill so there really shouldn't be a risk going used.

I was actually looking at that CPU, but unfortunately I can't find any reputable dealers that have any in stock.

Im in a similar boat although I dont have the 144hz monitor. Ive been torn between going to 6700k, 5820k and as mentioned above getting a 3770k second hand. Ive kind of decided to wait it out and see what happens with AMD's next generation of procesors and with Intels next gen Cannonlake, as long as my motherboard holds out on me.

Worth it is relative, the 6700k is better, but as Nexusred said, its minimal gains in gaming IMO for the money it costs to upgrade the whole platform. You could save that money and in a while upgrade to something possibly even better and in the mean time not really lose out on a huge amount.

Alternatively you could learn how to overclock your 3570k yourself and probably get a bit higher overclock, its really not that hard if you follow one of the guides here. It just takes a little time.

*I reserve the right to cave in and upgrade because I want something new to play with, dont hold my above words against me if I do smile.gif

Edit: I'm slow on the draw as usual.

I wouldn't. The difference would be at most 10% in CPU bound scenarios and higher resolutions use less CPU*. I think you'll be fine with a slight OC if anything.

*The bottleneck shifts from CPU to GPU at higher resolutions because the CPU doesnt have to work as hard to be able to keep up with the GPU.

I would try for a little higher Overclock (assuming your temps are fine). I would also try to clock that memory a little higher as well (you may need to loosen the timings a bit). That should help alleviate any cpu bottleneck.

 

And yea, I don't see much by you wrt getting a (used) 3770k and Ebay prices are REALLY high (like new 4790k prices at MC).
