    its worth it , my system is still cool ill find a game and play it until then .

    a good oc 5770k broadwell chip will do up to more than 30% better than the haswell
    with a good ddr 4 ram . its a good chance to see how that ram will do .
    and surly there will be a good 3gb vga by then , or a cheaper 780 gtx
    until then ill save more money and make a fresh post . bye and thanks 3d guru :)

    Broadwell is still DDR3 and the jump Haswell vs Broadwell will be like SB is to IB, 10-15% or so.

    Skylake will have DDR4 @ Z100 chipset.



    But yeah if you can wait some more, then do wait :)

    I couldn't anymore and bought this 4770k last summer, got really luck and have a fine chip.
    The jump from Q9450 to 4770k was huge, 150-200% in raw cpu power.

    DDR4 is strictly for X99 chipset and yeah later for mainstream LGA1151 Skylake and Z100 chipset.



    Well like its been mentioned 4790K is apparently due September, June2 only paper launch.

    Thanks -Tj-, have decided on Asus Hero VII and Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W.

    Those chassis look great, but are unfortunately too big for the space i have to work with. I'll go for FRACTAL DESIGN Define R4 because it's smaller and has a solution for big graphic cards. If it's too hot because of the sound proofing i'll install an additional fan.. might do that anyway.

    Instead of what? z87? From what I saw they cost more or less the same.. Might as well go with the newer one.

    Yes that is what I am going to do. It will allow for future upgrades which is Broadwell.

    You can still opt for Z97, just because of extra new SSD features, Z97 is cheap anyway..


    PS dont go Z77, i saw your post in another thread. Imo that would be really stupid at this point :D

    no you got it wrong . i meant i will go for the z87 i was going to go for
    the z77 at the start of this upgrade anyway . so z87 is good enough .
    i will not wait for the cpu so no ssd for me either , there is a chance this
    weak for the purchase maybe u hear from me soon . am hoping for
    a good cpu chip . i wish to reach 5 ghz :wanker:

    its kinda of strange stories man....

    i dont know how far are we allowed to go here

    its a long story if you want to hear it .

    read it only if you want to hear a story . allow it only if we are allowed
    to tell stories some times .

    i will maybe not live long enough to use this machine if i bought it. as i am having strong paralyze seizures , my fingers is hurting more now than 2 weeks ago . for the past 2 years they think its Parkinson but we are not
    sure what it is .
    i used to run ultra marathons 2 years ago now i am as strong as a 75 yo man .
    i am 43 yo . maybe this upgrade is just an illusion as i may be having throes .
    among other hallucinations as you see i was trying to do this upgrade since
    2012

    http://forum.pcmech.com/showthread.php?t=224940

    look at the date of this thread as i was asking if i needed to change the HDD
    before that time at 2010 i remember running a 50 kilometer ultra marathon easily .
    at that time i started having panic disorder and went to mental clinic , it was strange like the Emily rose movie

    [​IMG]

    i came over it and went back to running , i remember doing about 400 high
    bar at one day then Cairo changed to a war zone

    oooops no that last pic is from a video game
    but btw that first pic was in the street where the pc shops is so i could have
    went there and bought an ozzie

    lots of people died and suffered ,
    as i am Syrian living in Egypt few months later a strange phenomenon started in my home country

    yes its not fallout 3 guys . i opened the vault and found this :

    https://www.google.com.eg/search?hl...#hl=en&q=fallout+3++rubbles&tbm=isch&imgdii=_

    i think many of you have been in that game . as you can see the similarity .
    all my family died , all my love ones :cry: the world just stood there
    watching . no one tried to help us .
    all this happened to me in 3 years . i found this book in my dusty shelves
    i was desperate for help . but

    :puke2:

    i had it all my life i never tried to read it but withing it i did not understand
    a word :wanker: i have a collage grade and i spend 43 years in this community and i did not understand a word of it .
    i kept getting weaker until this day . my story goes on .

    look at all the threads i made on pc upgrade some got locked

    Ye wars are crap, some people are just to stupid to realize the bigger picture, also sorry for your loss.


    anyhow :)


    Quick hexus review, guess they just got a really poor ES sample, apparently it barely OC'ed beyond 4.4ghz.
    "A word or two about temperatures: Intel says it is to use the same processor-in-box (PIB) cooler for this chip as for the 4770K. We used just such a heatsink during regular testing and found that, due to the extra power consumption generated by higher voltages, the Core i7-4790K ran hotter, at an average of 88C, compared to 78C for the older Haswell processor."

    http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/161128-first-4790k-review-overclocking-issues/


    And small correction 4790K is out on 10-29th June or so.. Probably around 10th.

    16 gb ram is not such a bad idea anyway

    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/faq/download-faq

    What are the minimum system requirements for Arena Commander?

    Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
    DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM
    Quad core CPU
    8GB Memory
    Keep in mind that these are estimated system requirements and may change for the final release of the game.

    8 gb is minimum . i bet the 770 gtx beast is border line

    the 12 +2 power phase of the asus z87 pro is better or the 8 +2 plus the NexFET MOSFETs of the maximums hero is better ?

    Both will be enough, one or the other.


    More phases usually means colder mobo around cpu area..

    Better efficiency and cooler at the same time, probably cooler then that 12phase, I see Pro uses basic type, Deluxe has more advanced, ROG has uber..


    So are you getting Hero VI or VII with Z97chipset?
