  1. Very slow, or just not as responsive as a high end CPU? Would you say youre happy with overall performance of it?
  2. yeah that's true. Do you know how different the performance would be with a highly overclocked Pentium and the 4770k in something like photoshop?
  3. Yeah that's another option, maybe getting a devils canyon i5 would be good.
  4. Hello everyone, Currently i have a 4770k that I don't really use much anymore. I use my computer a lot but don't really take advantage of the 4770k, i rarely play games and haven't edited video's in a long time. When i purchased the 4770k i was a hardcore gamer, PC enthusiast and overclocker. However as time has gone on i use the computer less and less for what it was built for, now it's pretty much an internet browsing machine. What my question is, is that if i sold my 4770k, and bought a Pentium and overclocked it heaps (hopefully 4.5+) would i have massive performance loss across the board
  5. The 4820k woulld be good if you do need more PCie lanes, and more DIMMS. It also has the heatspreader soldered to the die rather than cheap TIM like the 4770k. Also, the 2011 motherboards are generally more expensive. However, they do leave more room to upgrade.
  6. Sounds about right. Although i havn't done any research yet, so i can't really comment.
  7. I'd imagine they would. Would you consider buying anything from the R9-8 series?
  8. I've got 2 760's, they're great. Maybe not as powerful as two 7970's but don't use as much power and all that stuff.
  9. yeah, i'm just broke as a joke at the moment. Just went on a holiday. hahaha can i ask what you did to your 4770k? And also, with the Hyper 212 i could only get my 4670k to 4.4
  10. Hey, thanks for the great reply. With IETU max temps were 77 but averaging about 72. I was going to buy a Swiftech h220, and stay with my 4670k, but when my brother was buying his new computer i payed him $120 and then got a 4770k and he got my 4670k . I'll have a look at your guide. Thanks again!
  11. Hey everyone, I had some spare time today so i thought i'd push my 4770k past its current 4.4 ghz (@1.21v). I had around 4.6 in mind, although i know on air, anything past 1.25 will get very hot. I am using a hyper 212 with a corsair SP 120 fan and stock thermal paste. When at 1.27v the CPU is still only running at an average of 75 degrees with IETU which seems really cool for that voltage(Using Realtemp, Aida64 and IETU to check temps because i didn't believe them). Is this normal from a 4770k? The hyper 212 is an entry level cooler, but it's sure doing a good job. Should i trust the softw
  12. I'm running, an OCZ Vertex 3 128GB, a 1TB, Seagate barracuda and an WD 2TB green drive. I originally bought the Seagate around 4 years ago, i had everything stored on that. Os, games, movies, you name it. After that started getting full, i bought myself the WD 2TB green. All i needed it for was mass storage. I ended up using it for my 400gb of games. Later, i bought the OCZ SSD, from what I read it was a great SSD, so i went with it and have never looked back. It peaks out at about 556 mbps read and 525mbps write (that's about advertised spec). I am currently using about 2.3tb of space on
