got a 4570 and h97 pc mate for $150, not sure if i should switch to it or sell it

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my main rig has my good old z68 xp ud3 with an i5 2500k @4.2
the new chipset is really really nice on the h97 vs my z68 but i have a feeling id be taking a step down in cpu performance? or would i? i know its about a %10 ipc improvement which makes that 4570 about as fast as my 2500k at 4ghz. but nvme ssd support trim in raid support pcie gen 3 native usb 3.0 6 sata 6 ports and a much faster boot time have got me wondering if i should just swap it into my main rig and sell my 2500k/z68 ?

alternatively sell both make a little money and then pick up a 6700k. unless you have an nvme drive ready to go it's not worth using that as an argument. i say stick with the 2500k and maybe push it a bit further

i just ran a couple time spy and api overhead cpu benchmarks and the 4570 scored better ( surprisingly ) than my overclocked i5 both using 7970s clocked at 1000mhz core 1500mem
