An i5 750 at 4ghz 1.29v is better than an average chip, That's a very good voltage for 4ghz considering some people need 1.35-1.4v lol.

So keep it, Or get the i7 if you use Ln2 lol.

I live in State College, PA. I plan on doing some extreme air cooling in the winter since it gets fairly cold here. I would be happy if I could get 4ghz stable @1.1v as I have seen in a review.

Here is the link:

I'm starting to sway towards the i7 875K even tho I don't really need hyperthreading. The votes seem dead even.

I think I would be able to sell the i7 875K for more than I paid for it used if I ever decided to upgrade again.

yea you have a great i5-750.its like my i7-870 that im selling
which does 4.0Ghz w/1.26v.most of these i5-750 and i7-860/870's
need on average 1.36 to 1.40v for 4.0Ghz.
the new 875K's are doing some great 4.0Ghz OC's with about 1.15v to 1.20v

There actually both $200, so I have no idea why someone would want the dual core unless they wanted a 4.6ghz OC on air.

I just confirmed 5 left at my local store. Should I go from the i5-750 to the i7-875k? I love upgrades but I am not convinced?

I dont see any reason to upgrade unless you are doing video encoding. You will not notice hardly any improvement (if you have windows 7 there will be a small margin of improvement. But only in OS speed). And you run the risk of getting a chip that doesnt overclock well, as theres always that possibility.
