Older CPU but still running solid overclock at 4.3G (4 years OC no trouble lol) 6 Core, lots of cache... Used as a gaming PC with GTX1070 still seeing no bottleneck with this CPU, getting over 144FPS (refresh rate limit) solid in games like overwatch with most everything on 1080p.. CPU/system over 4 years old now only upgrade was GTX580SLI's for one GTX1070 and few ssd's. It still maxes out refresh rate of 144 with no fps dropping below? Old board has Intel RAID I have made my own BIOS and updated (in x58 days old ROM would not detect SSD over 60G intel tried to tell you new mainboard was answer instead of just updating ROM on their old raid controllers...) to run 3 SSD's in RAID getting 750-800MB transfers even with the sata II bottleneck (using 3x ssd's), so not in rush to upgrade for storage speed... Whats with the everyone's rush to get newer CPU, honestly can't see need for it when already maximum settings in game 1080P? Or is it just an epeen thing to post better benchmarks in synthetic benchmark apps to boast? This is not a troll post, Its coming from a gaming perspective. I am not using this PC for anything else (pr0n doesn't count c1 so high values for synthetic benchmarks or compressing 3d rendering software are irrelevant. Has time come to upgrade, and if so for what reason if all the games I play already top settings at my 1080P with 144Hz refresh limit?
