  1. Best answer
    The only real difference is that the I7 has Hyper-threading technology, which though it servers little to no point in gaming (atleast in current games), does help the I7 perform better in highly threaded work such as video editing and digital modeling etc.

    Go for the i5 4690k, it runs at the same clock as the i7 and it is cheaper than the i7
  3. The 4690K can be overclocked to 5GHz to 5.5GHZ on air cooling. It will toast any 4770K in almost anything and be about $100 cheaper.

    Any 5.5 (or likely anything near ) OC you may be talking about are not something to be done easily in fact the devils canyon air OC record (5.49) was set at computex event 4 days ago and they were professionals using only a single core and engineering samples.
    Please dont get peoples hopes up for chips that haven't even released and we havent seen consumer samples for.

    Thanks, I didn't know that. Thank you Tom's for providing full details on the Devil's Canyon --- NOT.
  6. I think the problem is, Tom's Hardware spilt the beans early on how anemic the Haswells were. I think Intel spanked them in some way. It seems every since then Tom's have been a bit reluctant about Intel.

    Dont get me wrong, 5.anything or the possibility of something like that is damn impressive. Especially considering my 4670k is sitting at 4.7 ghz while giving load temps in the high 60's low 70's

    4.7G is mighty impressive! Did you delid? Water cool?
  9. Oh my yes corsair H100i, with it and two graphics my room feels like a furnace but at least it keeps my cpu cool.

    I didnt delid it, though i did think seriously about doing so. I guess the fact that i was hearing that 4.5-4.6 were the top end for most people made me feel accomplished enough to not risk $230 being greedy for more.
