I need new CPU
Poland Kuz. 
Hello, i want to upgrade my PC but i have old MOBO with Socket 1155. So, my CPU now is i5 3350p @ 3,1GHz and i want to buy used CPU on Socket 1155. Which will be the best to boost my CSGO FPS? Now i have 150-200 sometimes below 150.

you dont need more fps

with 144hz you just need 144 fps.

One option is Intel I7 2600, will it be much better than my i5?
2019-01-16 23:16
Will maybe be worse since SMT doesnt really matter in games.

I see only without Cooler. The question is will my STOCK fan work with i7 also? I think they are pretty same, same as radiator?

yeah it will, they all have the same stock cooler

Probably not if I am going to be honest. Depends on the core i7's power draw vs the supported wattage that your cooler can run at (as in, at what point would the cooler not cool the CPU enough). If it can support higher wattage cpu's then I'd say go for it, you need to do your research on that.

I think he is using the stock heatsink which will do ok but he'd be better off upgrading when he gets some cash. Intel wouldn't sell a CPU bundled with a cooler that will fry the CPU, as long as he runs it at stock it will be ok.

Most used CPU's do not come with a stock heat sink especially core 2 Duos and quads. But he is probably better off getting a better cooler as the used i7 he would receive would have probably been through some hell and is probably on its last legs and higher than normal temps would not fix that problem at all. I'd say the best he can go for is liquid cooling to improve the longevity of the CPU or even attempt to overclock it but there are probably some air coolers that would probably handle any i7. Intel stock heat sinks over the years have gone down in quality eventually ditching the copper for cheaper aluminum and decreasing the size of the fins and as a result, run about 10 degrees hotter while being cheaper for the end user and to the manufacturer.

What i'm saying is the stock cooler (that the 3770k is supplied with) will not fail and fry his CPU, BUT he should get something like a hyper 212 evo when he can. At least

The point is longevity of the CPU which can make an impact especially if you are going for newer hardware that you wont need to upgrade often such as the RTX 2080 Ti or the upcoming Ryzen 3 CPUs. The last thing you would want is to have an already dying used i7 and then have its death accelerated by the stock cooler as opposed to spending another $20-80 USD on a better cooler that can dissipate heat better and more efficiently. I think the stock cooler will let it run fine but what I am saying is that he is probably if he upgrades his CPU via the used market that he would also spend the extra euros or whatever currency Poland uses to buy a better cooler. Basically the stock cooler is a good path for your CPU but not the best. Stock coolers make more of an impact on newer CPUs though so he probably wont need to worry that much about longevity in this case.

I didn't read it all because you are arguing a point that I already agree with, he can buy and use the CPU without upgrading the stock heatsink but he should upgrade the stock cooler as soon as he can to prolong the life of the CPU etc etc. I didn't think it was that complicated to understand.

ya lol. agreed

Liquid cooling is not better, some air coolers like the Noctua NH-D15 beat high tier liquid coolers like the Corsair H150 I'm using. And they're cheaper.

That is probably true but I would say for it to perform at it's peak performance, it needs to be cleaned before dust really clogs up the fins on top of more noise output than a radiator but that air cooler is a perfect example of an air cooler that I would spend the extra dollars on assuming it mounts on my motherboard at all.
2019-01-16 23:51
Air coolers are not as loud as liquid coolers are, the larger the fan the quieter it is. And if you have a dust filter, you won't have any trouble with dust.

That's true but with dust filters, its highly dependent on the quality of case you buy. Some come with them, some don't plus they have to be cleaned otherwise airflow becomes more restricted. The main problem with liquid cooling for me is that people who don't know how to build a PC or lack the experience would likely not dig into the hassle of setting up a pump and that shit while they can hardly cable manage for shit. I think it feels more imitating than it should since as kids, we are taught to not mix water with electronics. It also depends if the fans on the case create a positive, negative, or neutral airflow system.

Yeah they all have the same stock cooler but I would buy a better one when you get a bit of spare money, nothing too expensive. I had the 3770k for a while and it's a good CPU. As long as you don't do any overclocking the stock Intel cooler will stop the CPU from overheating, but as mentioned i'd get even a $25 one from amazon when you can.

the cooler will work, but it isn't very good the i7 would run really hot any 15~20$ cooler is better than the intel stock one
2019-01-16 23:48
Nothing. There isnt any upgrade really worth it, especially for CS. If you want a new CPU go for the ryzens+mobo. Otherwise go and get the best i7 with that socket, but I wouldnt recommend it.

Yes i know the best is new mobo + CPU, but i have DDR3 ram, and i need to upgrade them too... Too expensive.
2019-01-16 23:23
I know them feels. I was facing the same. Needed better CPU and therefore better RAM, cause better CPU needed DDR4. But honestly just save up a bit longer and do it. You will have to anyways sooner or later.

what do you think about that processor? I bought it today
2019-01-17 00:11
It more than enough for gaming,trust me)
2019-01-17 09:36
3770k, but honestly not sure if mine is dying but its performing really shit in new games and even cs I probably get like 10-15 more frames than you Think what really happened is valve aren't optimising the new updates for older cpus meaning they're all starting to get shit I just upgraded my CPU+RAM+MOBO

Can you write all specs? Try to upgrade to an i7 3770 and if is possible more ram.

How many free slots have your motherboard? Its 1x8 or 2x4? The GPU is ok,try to update that I5 to the i7 that i told you

aw I see. Just go to America for vacation and buy PC stuff there, worth
2019-01-17 00:21
I have the same problem and most people recommend buying the i7 4790. Although I'm not sure it's the best decision, since you'll have to upgrade your mobo at some time, there's not much point delaying it. Where I live, used pc parts aren't that cheap so I might just buy an amd CPU and a new mobo+ram. It's not much more expensive and it's better now, and more convenient for the future

What's wrong about 150-200 tho? You only need to stay above 144.

xeon e3-1270 v2 maybe?
2019-01-17 09:50
Id buy a new mobo and or if that's not an option just buy the same generation i7 as your current i5
2019-01-17 09:52
Theere wont be any upgrade on socket 1155 worth to spend your money on. Best option would be the 3770k which could maybe boost your fps by like 5% at best. Better save a few more months and invest into new mobo, ram and cpu in the future.
2019-01-17 09:53
I'm thinking of upgrading my pc, could you help me, please? My PC specs: AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8 GHz ATI Radeon 5770 1GB Vapor-X Sapphire 8 GB Ram Windows 10 I'm currently playing 5v5 at ~100 fps How much fps should I get just upgrading my motherboard and CPU for an i5 8th gen?
