Is it worth to change i5 4670k...?

 Share

Hi guys in the advance sorry for my bad English..  I m from Croatia ( europe near Italy) Anyway I have

 

i5 4670k

Gigaybte Z87-HD3

and Scythe Ashuru

 

Is it worth to change that components for new Haswell refresh CPU-s? And new z97 chipset? When Intel hits the market (off course) is it worth to sell my "old" components and buy new?

3570k is really all you need right now if you're just gaming

No not really you should just stick with the 4670k

Wait for maybe Haswell-E or the generation after in my opinion. 200-300$ for a 5% upgrade and less temps isn't worth it in my opinion. (Assuming its that much and it does do less heat than Haswell)

I have Ashuru Air cooler and the temps are just fine.. So you think that is not worth it?  p.s. What do you mean my Haswell E? I like Mainstream stuff.. I just play games with my system and off course watch videos on youtube, surfing..

Definitely not. Do you have problems with doing what you do on your system now? If you have problems with the playing experience then you should upgrade/add a graphics card. If you have problems with waiting on video editing or rendering, you should probably just go for a 2011 socket and get the 6 core cpu. In general, there is no real reason to upgrade if you are not having problems right now.

If you want more FPS, then get better gpu. The cpu will be fine for another cuple years.

Unless they surprise us with some crazy improvements over Haswell, no.

I say to people who have 3570k's not to bother upgrading.

 

The only time I recommend getting a 4670K is when you are doing a fresh build and you don't have any other components already. 

 

Anyways, if you are thinking of upgrading from a 4570K to the new intel chips, don't.

 

Unless you are planning to go into heavy video editing or something that requires an 8 core extreme edition, don't bother upgrading.

If its anthing similar to how haswell performs now, then there wil be no point in upgrading. They did say that they where going to be fixing the heat issuse by using better tim. That may be omthing to look at if you are a overclocker

The CPU you currently have is all you need right now, no need to spend your money at a new one. For gaming it's good and it will continue to be until the next 2 years(based on my speculation OFC).
