MOBO & Intel Chip?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I am planning to change my mobo and my intel chip and needed advise. Curently im using a Asus Sabertooth X79 with a Intel I7-3770 running at 3.6GHZ. I have a Corsair power AX860 running on a Asus 780Ti . Please advise me should i use my curent MOBO with a new Intel Chip or should i change both? Requirement is for gaming for P3d & DCS. Your honest and unbiased feedback and advise is greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you,

Gizmo05

Is that a K version? 3770K? If so you'll get a large increase in performance by overclocking to 4.5 ghz or so

I'm running a 3570K and upped from 3.8GHz to 4.6GHz, nothing else was changed (tweaks, installs the lot were all unchanged).  The performance improvement I witnessed was about 20FPS (sitting around 20FPS before the OC till about 38FPS) for P3D v2.

 

This was running PMDG773 sitting on the runway at ORBX YBBN with ORBX global+trees (not much clouds at the time) working at the time.  So your focus should be on how much any single core can be clocked up to, whether it's i5 or i7.
