2700k or 3770k?

I have a 2700k, and am having second thoughts about whether I should go with a 3770 instead. Will be using on an Asus P8Z77 WS with 16GB Ripjaws Z, Phankteks PH-TC14PE.

Which would be ultimately the best performer with a stable 24/7 OC? Workload includes multimedia production, desktop apps, gaming, folding. Thanks in advance!

The 2700k would be stable at much higher freq, around 4.8GHz if u can manage to push it. The IB chips tend to get quite hot, limiting OC to the 4.4GHz region.

3770K.
this guy's example above ^^, if u have a 3770 at 4.4 and a 2700 at 4.8 the 3770 and 2700 would probably perform equally. i doubt ull get a 2700 to 4.8 easily though. my 3770k is at 4.6 on a $30 cooler master cpu fan/cooler.

But would a highly overclocked 2700 match a more overclock-limited 3770 performance-wise in most cases?

isnt the 2700k just a higher frequency of the 2600k? id get the 3770k, ivy bridge. plus i remember always getting the 1 generation behind components. now i regret it.

also consider the PCIE 3.0 support on Ivy. It might not too beneficial ATM, but who knows a few years later...

Then again, it's a matter of preference :)

Given that IB is on average 5% faster than SB at same clocks, yes...the IB chip has a better IPC :)

Yes...but some pple say it OC's better coz its a better quality chip.
There isn't much difference between IB and SB, except for slightly better IPC, PCIe 3.0 and lower power consumption due to the new 22nm FinFET technology used :)

I would go with the Intel® Core™ i7-3770K. While it won't give you the higher clock speed when it is overclocked in the end you are going to get a processor that will performance as well and some other features that can help you out.
