    i5 2500k, it was overclocked until one of the memory channels died (i think), just been running it stock ever since XD

    I reckon Coffee Lake might finally push me to upgrade....even at stock, an 8600k should double the performance of my i5 750 @ 4GHz, plus a bit more in the tank if I delid and overclock. That's pretty compelling.

    i7 2700k I think, its been so long since I've powered it up! Gigabyte mobo of some sort, 32GB DDR3 1066, does the job from what I remember. Use it mainly just as a file store these days.

    Laptop uses a i5 3437U, 20GB DDR3 1866 and it runs rings around the PC.

    It'll offer a huge improvement across the board, even at stock paired with decent RAM.

    As with Kaby a delid is very much worth the gains. They overclock fairly well too, as expected.


    I'm not surprised, the RAM speed and Cache speed will make a noticeable difference.

    System 1 is X99 5820k with Asrock ITX, 16gb DDR4-3000.
    System 2 is Asus Rog Strix 1151 Z270 with currently an I5 7400 or 7500 (can't recall which) though will probably hunt for a K series for this).
    New system coming to replace the X99 is CL 8600K with Rog Strix Z370 ITX which I'll re-use the DDR4 in.

    Main System: Intel i5-2500 / Asus P8Z68-V LX / 16gb G.Skill ddr3 1600 mhz (2x8gb) / Asus Dual GTX 1070 8gb OC
    Secondary System: Intel E8400 / Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3P / 4gb Geil DDR2 800 (4x1gb)

    Next upgrade will probably replace secondary system with main system and then get a new main system. Probably a z370 motherboard and 8400 or 8700 CPU. Have no interest in overclocking

    Well I kinda skipped that and went to an 8700K with a Maximus Hero z370 board, and some trident z 3200 on the way.

    CPU 3570K @ 4.2 on a ASUS Z77-V
    Upgrades:
    RAM: from 8GB to 24GB
    GPU: from 570 to 570 SLI to 970
    Storage: From 3 x 500GB in RAID0 - Added Dual 120GB SSD in RAID0 + 512GB SSD
    Monitor: From Samsung Bx2450 22" 1080 to Acer Predator x34

    I'd like to upgrade but will probably hang out for another 12 months. If it was cooked in a storm today I'd move to Ryzen due to availability and price.

    Still rocking a 1155 system. Went from a 2500k to a 3770K at 4.6 and getting 16000 on Firestrike with a 1080 so it must be working well.

    Not a PC, but I just upgrade a 27" iMac 2011 from the stock i5 to a 3.4Ghz i7 2600.

    The i5 was doing well, but getting hyper threading and a higher base clock speed for a $105 used on ebay was too tempting. The upgrade was a bit scary at times, but easy enough.

    Chucked 32GB of ram in it and it feels like a new Mac!

    Plugging away still on my Dell XPS i5 480M laptop, and my gaming rig is still running a 2600K. No need to upgrade, one happy user of 7 year old tech. :thumbup:
