    A 7700K performs around 10% better.

    In short, no, you won't be bottlenecked.

    In long, no, and stop being daft.

    I ran some numbers for building a Ryzen or Kaby Lake system, and decided to pass for now. Bought a used i7-3770k. Planning on sticking this on. Convince me this is a good/bad idea.

    ha, thanks.
    Ill keep the 4th gen then. I didnt know how it performed relative to newer chips, 10% is surprising!
    I didnt know if not being able to use ddr4 might have been a factor worth to upgrade too.

    Just ordered a asus strix 1080ti, should be a nice quiet and cool upgrade over my HD 7990 dual GPU noisey 86degrees loud as fuck brick

    Unless you're building a fully passive PC, don't bother. For the same sort of cash you can pick up a Noctua NH-D15 or a Thermalright Silver Arrow that will perform miles better and probably be quieter than every other fan in your machine.

    I've got a NH-D15 in my new build, you literally can't hear it over the case fans and by the time it needs to start speeding up the GPU's fans have kicked in.

    And if you ARE going fully passive, don't bother with a 3770k. You're not going to be doing any serious overclocking in a passive rig - low power is the way to go.

    Just figured I chime in on the Noctua NH-D15; I have one in my 2 year old build and it's down right amazing. Whisper quiet since the fans hardly ever move and barely collects any dust.

    As Zekk has said, a passive CPU cooler is pointless unless you're going for a fully passive system. A good air cooler will cope with a 3770K no problem and make so little noise you won't be able to hear it with the case closed. I have an ancient Xigmatek 120mm cooler on my slightly overclocked 4790K and it's inaudible unless all 8 threads are at 100% load. And those passive coolers are so big they usually have clearance problems with the RAM slots and sometimes the first PCIe 16x slot.

    Alright, after viewing some videos and reading some reviews, I've determined that the Zalman cooler isn't appropriate. Mostly because there's nothing to stop the cooler from rotating in place, which is an issue I had with my first Zalman cooler years ago. I placed an order for a Noctua NH-D9L.

    It really doesn't. It allows you to make i.

    And they all have jobs they can barely perform.
