    Not really any pros or cons.

    If you are building right now, then use Haswell with a *97 board.

    Basically Haswell consumes less power under normal use cases. Although Ivy van OC higher, Haswell doesn't need to to still beat Ivy.

    4.4GHz 4690k > 4.6GHz 3570k
  2. ** both are 22nm both have 1.3V as the max safe voltae Ivy/haswell can OC the same it is silicon lottery

    buy haswell 4690K coz it has newer instruction set/new motherboards etc...

    also Haswell 4690K has more TDP @ 84Watts vs the ivy bridge 77watts im talking about the refresh haswell it is for Overclocking
  3. Haswell is a newer micro-architecture, and introduced some changes which improved performance, e.g. extra arithmetic units, faster cache, better memory controller, etc - thus, it's faster at the same clock speed. Full list of differences (warning: technical): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haswell_%28microarchitecture%29#New_features
  4. While haswell is not a big enough of an improvement to upgrade from an existing ivy-bridge computer, there is no benefit in building an ivy-bridge computer over haswell. The older ivy-bridge parts will be more expensive as well as slightly slower and a dead socket.
  5. ^ did i mention they are out of production i had to search every where to get a refurb Z77 Sabertooth after my Mpower caught fire
  6. Hahah hence the reason I don't buy MSI motherboards.
  7. well i heard good things about how it was one of the best motherboards @ 200USD

    should have gotten a ROG mobo or a Sabertooth (i already have a sound card)so i went with that.
    sabertooth has the exact same power dilvery as all the Z77 ROG MOBO which is a nice plus

    Exception is the Formula it is different from everything else

    one thing i learnt is they make great cards but their QC on their motherboards is S*** should just stick to asrock (for 135/100 usd) anything above that is Asus territory
  8. the option for one of those will depend on the price you can buy each one. And the 97 have some new feutures like m.2 ssd and turnderbolt
  9. Z97/H97 will support Broadwell too so buying Ivy Bridge at this point is like adopting a deal mule.

    And holy, I couldn't agree more. They make good GPUs but their motherboards are not my favorite. Not the worst but not the best by any means. Great design team though. I bought the Maximus HERO VII and I love it so much.
  10. Going with Ivy Bridge would have been an idea back when Haswell was just coming out - a Haswell setup for me would have cost an extra $50+. Nowadays, Ivy Bridge is a dead socket and you'd be very lucky to find a decent CPU/motherboard for it as it's gone out of production. Not exactly an expert in motherboards as I've only built one PC and no upgrades so far but I have an ASRock and it's going well.
  11. well gotta agree MSI was the first motherboard with a matte black PCB (imo was the best looking z77 board) and i had a red/black/yellow theme going

    oh well i would go with haswell+asrock motherboard if u want something bellow 140usd @ 200USD get the VII hero(has awesome sound card too which is a plus) !
  12. If you buying i3, i5, i7 then spending 25-30$ extra for haswell wouldn’t get you much extra, but if you are going for budget processor, then there are many awesome low cost haswell processor like Celeron G1840, Intel G3240, watch here for full detailsIf you buying i3, i5, i7 then spending 25-30$ extra for haswell wouldn’t get you much extra, but if you are going for budget processor, then there are many awesome low cost haswell processor like Celeron G1840, Intel G3240,
