I5 2400 vs i7 3770k Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Cooling Video Intel i5 Last response: December 11, 2012 5:58 PM in CPUs Share Altiris December 8, 2012 2:48:42 PM Is it worth buying an i7 3770k with a hyper 212 cooler from an i5 2400 with stock cooler? I am going to be gaming and maybe some adobe premiere pro videos but videos won't be longer than like 6min.

Gaming is fine on the 2400. m 0 l jaguarskx a c 480 à CPUs December 8, 2012 7:04:05 PM For short videos the it-3570k would be the better value. Unless you are doing huge batches of 6 minute videos (like at least 30) on a consistent basis, the i7-3770k would not be worth it. m 0 l Related resources I5 2400 to i7 3770k now pc wont start - Forum I5 2400 Upgrade to an i7 3770k? - Forum i7 3770k vs i5 4670k - Forum i5 4670k vs i7 3770k - Forum i7 3770k vs i5 4670k - Forum Can't find your answer ?
