Its not about the max frequency, i could go higher with the speed , but i simply didnt, because i dont see any real benefit higher than 1600, but i cant get the latencies as low as on the x5500 series on the x5600 series with same frequency. Both the sniper and ripjaws are able to run 1866 at 1,5v as well, if i increase the timings further, im sure they work at even higher speeds too. The sniper nets the better latencies though.

Would the only worthwhile time to upgrade to 4790k be if you plays games like guild wars, wow, Starcraft, and heroes where they are cpu bound instead of gpu?

If you run BOINC or Folding at home it would be worthwhile since they would take advantage of the new instructions missing in the x58 chips.
From my "memory" VTX and VTX2 instructions. Primegrid is much, much faster with those.


EDIT: AVX and AVX2 I do believe are the correct instructions missing in the x58 1366 chips.

My [email protected] is running strong with tri sli 4gb 680s. I wouldn't upgrade if I didn't have a killer setup to go to.

Alright, cause I picked up a 4790k from ire but have yet to open it. Couldn't justify haswell so I opted to skip it. I'm playing at 2560x1440 and I can never keep constant 60 with my 4.2 970.

Best way to answer that is to have monitoring software running while you game. If your framerate drops, Alt-Tab out and see why. GPU at 100% means you're GPU limited. Same for CPU.

1440p is a demanding resolution for one card in some games.

This is the best way to find out what is bottlenecking or limiting performance.
