Hey guys,

 

So I got really excited for the release of the new Intel Haswell series CPU's or the 4th generation architecture. Lets just say my wallets going to take a hit over the next few months. The strangest thing with both of these releases is I find it a bit daft that Nvidia have released the 780 so close to the titan and pretty much undercut themselves with a better cheaper GPU...

 

Here are some links to various reviews about the new Nvidia GPU's and Haswell CPU's.

Thank you for the share. I'm interested in upgrading my old pc and seeing we are on the verge of a generation shift might wait a bit to see if the prices drop a bit, I'm not interested in a top pc, for both lack of money to make the investment and lack of time to actually use the pc.

Interested in upgrading my PC as well but supposedly the 4xxx chips run hot as hell. Might get a 3xxx instead if there s a decent price on it.

The problem with temps is that Intel changed from soldered to using TIM between the chip and the cover. The space between the chip and the cover is what causes the issue and that's something that's very hard to regulate. The good thing with the 4xxx is it can run under extremely low voltages and is incredibly efficient Intel boasting ridiculous battery life for new notebooks. On the subjects of new builds, I think I will be waiting till EK come out with a waterblock for the EVGA superclocked 780 before I switch up.

New CPU and GPU = Reduced prices in old stuff.

 

 

I am really hopping I can catch 3750k and 680 at good prices now.

The superclocked has the same PCB as other reference GTX 780s, so you'll be able to use EK's Titan waterblocks with it, though there's not that much point buying a 780 with a non-reference cooler if you're going to water cool it anyway.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing results from delidded 4670K/4770K processors. Initial results show good temperature drops, and if overclocking results are good, it'll make a tempting upgrade. :)

 

 

Also noticed that the link you posted in the OP for the reference 780 actually goes to the 770 review, in case you missed that. :P

Fixed the link.

 

What a mad man delidding a 4770 already, but those temp drops are so good... The more I look at the 4 series the more tempted I am to stick with my 3570k. The 5%-10% increase I've seen in performance doesn't appeal to me as much when I'm hardly making the most of the proc power anyway with a couple of sql Vm's and games.

 

Also from what I see the 4 series can be very up and down till they get the manufacturing glitches out with some CPU's overclocking huge and some barely reaching 4.5.

 

On the 780 Block that's a fair point I must have got my names mixed up Im being stupid. I was getting confused between the 2GB 770 and the 3GB 780, I thought the 780 was 2GB and evga made a 3GB version with a non reference PCB.

Yeah - a lot of people were "de-lidding" their ivy bridge CPU's (mainly the i7's) because you could get them to run 20 degC cooler..! Even Ivys seem to run hotter than Sandy.

 

Some good non-reference cooled 770's have recently been released (the windforce one looks good) although i'll be waiting for another generation or two before upgrading.
