i3-5xx *OC'd* vs i3-2100 - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I did the same thing just recently. Sold my Athlon II x4 and board and grabbed my current 1156 stuff. What made me switch was spending hours grabbing the Dragon Age Origins Ultimate package(or whatever it called) from steam and finding the first town I hit ran at ~30 fps. My Athlon II could only do 3.6 semi stable/3.5 stable as well.

Haven't played too much with the new stuff yet, but I did get DA:Origins loaded up at the same spot I quit on the Athlon II and it runs at 60fps same settings and everything in the first town. BC2 runs at a minimum 60fps, 1080p High, 2xAA, 16xAF, HBAO off(Athlon II couldn't maintain that). And UE3 games(Gears, Bulletstorm) now have no stutter, previously had to tweak them to remove stutter on my AII/PII systems.

Might actually play Need for Speed Hot Pursuit multiplayer now, as it runs at 60fps now as well. Starcraft 2 runs better late game as well, easily.

Check the batch out before you buy though. Mine must suck as it needs 1.4v for 4GHz. It's a K0 and from what I'm seeing on other forums they apparently can take/need more voltage, not sure though. Games definitely feel a lot smoother now.

WOW! That was a really helpful post! Did you happen to check the difference in StarCraft II? That's really the only game I play.

i grabbed another i3,this time i got a 550 which is a KO and even though it has a high vid of 1.25v it can do 4.6GHz HT ON w/1.36v and 4.8GHz HT ON w/1.44v.
my old i3-530 with a 1.19v vid needed the exact same voltages for 4.6GHz.
i got lucky again

Haha, I was unlucky though I don't care if it needs more volts. Not a lot of info on the K0 but most of the ones I have read the user had crappy vcore for anything over 3.8. My chip is good up to 3.7 at 1.2 vcore, 3.8 needs 1.38 or so and 4 needed 1.4. It stays at 60ish after 6 hours of Prime. Gaming 50-55(BC2).

Can you share your settings if possible? I haven't had Intel since my old Pentium 100 like 15 years ago(or whenever they came out). I've read and followed the 3 step guide that is popular, but I'm curious to see what you have. Mainly all the frequency/voltages would be awesome.

Haven't played too many games yet as I'm still tweaking and getting used to Intel, but I have played a few sc2 matches. On my Athlon II x4 at 3.5 the game would start out(I play zerg so other races higher) at about 70-90 and get down to 30-60. When I had my i3 at 3.8, same settings, it starts out at 140 and dips down to the 50's. This was 2v2. My 6850 was 900/1150 on both systems.

1080p, Ultra on both systems.

The biggest surprise was BC2 to be honest. Figured the 4 cores would win out, but it's not even really close. The game just feels silky smooth now in 32 players matches.

Bump for more feedback. It would be great to hear from someone who has experience with both.
