Penti Posted July 5, 2012 Posted July 5, 2012 (edited) Hey guys, I'm thinking of building a new PC, and have been checking out reviews of new components.. Now I've seen benchmarks (this specifically: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/523?vs=551) that says that the old i7 3770K is much faster than the new i7 3820. Was looking at using the new lga 2011 but thinking twice after seeing that review. Now does the new lga 2011 have anything better (mobo wise) that can negate the benchmark of the CPU or is it better to go with the 3770K with an 'older' mobo? P.S. I overclock, but not aggressively, so the unlocked processor doesn't really mean much to me (in it for the long term, so don't want to overclock to the point that it'll reduce the lifespan of the CPU).. Edit to add: want the 3820 since I wanted to try the RIVE mobo, unless someone here can change my mind..
