I5 3750k or i7 3770 (non K) for a New Build Tags: New Build Intel i7 Intel i5 Systems Last response: December 4, 2012 8:54 PM in Systems Share nightstalker1 December 1, 2012 11:41:07 PM hey guys planning to get either one of the 2 :- http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/barebones/bb-35708h.... OR http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/barebones/bb-37708g.... Planning to get this for 3d rendering work, photoshop & bit of gaming. Its hard to find any good reviews or tests of the i5 3750k vs i7 3770 (non K) most of the tests are for the K version. What do you guys think would be a better deal and be a bit future proof?. I dont know much about overclocking, might try it a bit : but not at the expense of power consumption (low power consumption is one of my main priorities) Also, the first comes with a Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3, there isnt much info online about this (but the only drawback i figured is 1 hdmi port) not sure if thats a problem. and the second bundle with a MSI Z77-G41 (which i have seen has quite horrible reviews) , should i swap both of them for a Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3H ? Thanks!

Also the amd build seems to consume more power than the intel builds. Can someone answer my questions in the first post, would really appreciate your help. nightstalker1 December 2, 2012 11:37:24 AM Anyone? :-) TheBigTroll December 2, 2012 1:19:11 PM id get neither as i said. they both include crappy components nightstalker1 December 4, 2012 8:27:01 PM thanks! do you think the Scan G30 System http://www.scan.co.uk/value-systems#Cat127 is a better deal? Minus the gfx card for now. the only difference i see is the cooler master case (they havent mentioned what psu it is tho) maybe its a CM too? TheBigTroll December 4, 2012 8:28:57 PM no. its still bad. low quality case + no name psu TheBigTroll December 4, 2012 8:29:11 PM the 430 is low compared to other cases around its price point agentsmith30303 December 4, 2012 8:40:05 PM http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=AMD+Phen... Going to your first question -- I am pretty sure these are un-overclocked results. So I am not sure how the i5k series would look overclocked on this list. TheBigTroll December 4, 2012 8:53:46 PM the i5 3570k at stock speed is around 7000 marks. well over double TheBigTroll December 4, 2012 8:54:34 PM this compares the 965be to the 3570k at stock speed. keep in mind a 965 be is just a overclocked 945 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/102?vs=701 Can't find your answer ?
