>> No.71091613

"3670K" doesn't exist. If you mean the 3570K it's not worth it, same thread count as the 2500K, only with slightly higher stock clock (but your 2500K is probably overclocked anyway). The only worthwhile upgrade I see on the 1155 socket is an 8 thread CPU like the 3770K, but in my eyes those are way too expensive for the small performance gain.

>> No.71091626

Probably pretty evenly matched when overclocked, maybe even edging out your CPU. I've had like 30% gains in CPU benchmarks at 4.3 GHz on my 2500K compared to stock.

I had one and went to a 2600k just to max out what I could do on the socket. That being said with all the exploits being exposed I will probably go Zen2 just to get off the platform.

>> No.71093054


I ran my 2500k for 8 years at 4.5 under 1.3 volts as a daily driver on air with a mid range board that has shitty 4+1+1 phase control and is still alive. It's not like you have to put a water loop on it to get all the raw performance you can from it.

>> No.71093119


2600k is best 1155 chip out there really. It clocks as high as 2700k despite some claiming that 2700k is binned better. It beats Ivy Bridge because they intentionally removed the soldered IHS that allowed Sandy Bridge to clock as high as it does.
