    Hi guys.
    Still running on a Q9400 here, building new pc soon.
    Got the motherboard yesterday cause price dropped, got asrock z77 fatality pro.

    I'll probably be the only one here when I say I won't be overclocking (never got into it, don't understand it, too lazy). Will ivy 3570k be worth it, and be a better option over 2500k? Or will 2500k dominate? (keep in mind stock speeds).

    Cheers.

    Go the ivy 3570 (non-k) if you're not going to overclock. When you're not over clocking, ivy bridge beats sandy bridge hands down.

    If you want to get into overclocking this is the best set up for it, it is incredibly easy to get a big but nice, safe and easy overclock on Ivy/Sandy bridge.

    If your not going to overclock then I would still suggest going for a 3570k, although the k-series is strictly useful to overclockers they have a much higher resale value (literally $30-$40) so it is worth it if you see yourself upgrading in the next two years. Plus it leaves the option of overclocking open if you do decide to give it a go :thumbup:

    *BUT* if you are on a tight budget don't sacrifice anything to go for a 3570k over a 3570.

    What are stock temps of a 2500K compared to a 3570K (non overclock).

    I probably wont be over clocking, but will still buy a K version, will be getting a 2500K if the price of the 3570K is retarded I guess.

    Does the Z77 chipset support VT-d provided you have a processor that does support VT-d?

    Though Temerature readings at stock don't actually tell you anything useful.

    It is

    Higher temp readings are due to thermal density and the use of TIM (paste) vs Solder on SB to bond die to heatspreader

    Hence my last post.. die temp is not an indication of Heat output. Look at power consumption to determin that

    Reading through all the reviews, it seems that IB sees around a 5% performance increase clock for clock over SB while consuming around 10% less power.

    Seems like a similar effect of the shrink from conroe to wolfdale back in the core2 days. Except that while wolfdale OC'd better than conroe, IB seems to be OC'ing worse than SB which pretty much negates the performance/power benefits?

    So am I right in saying that from a performance standpoint you're still better off getting SB if OC'ing?

    This. I know IB NDA, blah, blah, blah ... but this has been the most tightly-lipped release in a long time, especially surrounding RRPs.

    CPU Performance Maybe, but I'll still go IB over SB since I am using a Z68 board. The IB CPU will increase performance capacity on PCIe and DDR rates.

    Any idea on 'non-inflated' prices come release? I'm after the 3570k.

    Also is there any real benefit for an average user (no sli, mild oc) to get the MVG over the P8Z77-M PRO?

    gah.
    supplier sent me a 3770. note the lack of "K" there.
    it took me about half a second to notice this... f%&ing hopeless. knew it was too good to be true, everyone else is saying low/no 3770k retail stock yet.

    have asked for a 3570k to be sent TODAY (to hopefully get here by weekend and give me something to do lol) since i know they are around - not sure on the 3770k's yet.

    Bummer T8Y, I'd be pretty pissed.

    Just went to netplus in Osborne park and they're selling ivy over the counter. No 3770k, they expect them early to mid next week. Got some stock reserved. Also picked up a 3570k because I couldn't help myself.:lol:
