I'm also skeptical about a more beefy GPU helping for CS:Go.

For fun, you could see if you can get 4.7GHz out of your 3570k and your cooler. If you are already feeling greedy about replacing it, you could torture your current stuff a bit the next few months to try stretching its life a bit. And then maybe AMD releases something really good before summer that scares Intel and drives the price for the 9700k down.

Yeah CS:GO is more a CPU intensive game, i think my current 1060 is more than enough.
I've oc'ed my cpu like 6 years ago and if I remember correctly, everything above 4.5ghz would really higher the temps a lot so i decided to stick with a stable 4.5 and low vcore.

If its non modular then its an S12II rebranded and if its semi modular its a M12II rebranded and both of those are group regulated which means mediocre voltage regulation

You're fine for what you do you don't need to upgrade, certainly not before 7nm products get on market.

What group regulated means is all the rails are treated as one big group instead of each rail having its own control and because of that you get poor voltage regulation
One result of group regulation is you cant put your PC to sleep in the C6 and C7 states if you have a Haswell or newer CPU

Thanks for letting me know! The next PSU I'm gonna buy will not be a group regulated one for sure.

According to userbenchmark, a 3570k with a 1060 6GB in 1080p, max settings, gets an average of 175FPS, while a 8600k would get 237FPS. I hope you find this useful.
I had to use 1.39v for my i5 3570k (which I'm still using), so you're lucky too!

All you mention is CS-GO for gaming for the most part.


For your current setup, Id only recommend looking for a good deal on a kit of 2400 or 2666mhz ddr3 ram. Should help with the smoke FPS drops, but overall, potentially a minor noticable upgrade.





Your motherboard only supports 2xxx and 3xxx intel chips, so a 3770k is the only real chip upgrade, of which is wiped out when you overclock.




Id try to find a cheap 6xxx or 7xxx based intel combo deal. They exist on here occasionally, even saw a freebie setup recently that might have ended up being simply bad ram.


Keep your eyes open!


Your GPU is perfectly fine for playability, even if you chose to find a high refresh 4k monitor in the future.


Right now, you are going to want to look for a processor that has more L2 and L3 cache. If its an intel chip, its super easy, just google the name, and 99.9999999% of the time, the very first result is the Intel data website on the chips.

Thanks a lot for the reply .
I will check my local marketplace for some cpu+motherboard discounts if i can find anything, if I can't find anything good I'll just keep playing with my current rig untill intel drops it's prices.
