still i7-950 +X58 or 2600k+p67? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
If you can buy used hardware, 1366 is by far the best way to go, actually. It ends up saving you a couple hundred bucks versus buying Sandy Bridge parts, which no one is really selling at a loss yet. I traded in my i5 750 + P55-UD3R + 4GB Trident 2000 + $70 for this i7 system, which has all the expansion I could ever want.

Here is a quote from the article
Quote:
Without HyperThreading, the gains vary between 5.6 and 20.4%, for an average of 13.2%. With hyperthreading, Sandy Bridge is 5.6 to 19.3% faster, with an average of 11.3%. Combined with the increase of frequency equal to tariff mentioned above, we can expect significant gains in price / performance ratio.
The difference is much more than what you claim. The smallest gap between SB and lynfield is 5.6% (this in crysis which not CPU intensive game). Yet you claim it is only 3.5-5% ? LOL

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a high risk or experienced overclocker, but I just got the 2600k up to 4.9Ghz with nothing more than regular water cooling and bumping the Vcore to 1.4v.

I made it to 4.7 on 1.325.

By far the easiest overclock I've ever had and am glad I waited.
