Sorry, after looking at those benches again, the 2600k looks pretty damn good! But, I have decided to wait for Ivy. Thanks again!

But by how much, it will cost about the same and I have seen people get 4.9GHz with nothing but a H50.

You'll prob need a full liquid loop to get 4.4 on the 970.


The 970 will still likely come a little ahead on video encoding, but for almost every other application it will be spanked.


Though, as mentioned, if you wait the 8 core CPUs will be on the market soon with the new sandybridge socket (not ivybridge which is a die shrink).

I did also hear rumours of new extreme chips for the current 1155 socket.
