worth upgrading i5-4670k to i7-4790k?
ptr |

I'm upgrading my GTX970 to RTX2060. Also bought 240Hz monitor recently. Is anyone there using i7-4790k? I'm sitting on i5-4670k and that setup is not giving me stable >240FPS, more like 180-230...

I can, but Ryzen sucks ass in csgo and new i7s price is a joke. Maybe AMD&Zen 2 will show something good then I can consider upgrading to new architecture.

m.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Intel-Core-i7-7700K-K.. This one's on sale rn, but if you can find it cheaper then cool the I5 9600k is good as well and cheaper than the i7: m.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i5-9600K-Coffe..

Hes looking at cpus that fit in his socket. And no Ryzen CPU is better at cs go than Intel.
2019-02-14 23:05
No they won't. If he wants ryzen he should wait for zen2, prices will drop then.

Yes but Intel is way ahead in single core performance.
2019-02-15 00:04
Yea currently they are. The zen2 processors leaked info (could be bullshit), puts that generation very close to the intel chips for clock speed. If true though there is still the fact that intel is better for overclocking.

Yeah but even at same clock speeds intel has been ahead in single core performance. Thats the main reason I cant consider buying amd because I dont want to lose hundreds of fps because of it.
2019-02-15 13:50
The zen2 is supposed to have a single clock speed of 5 or 5.1 ghz, which beats the majority of intel single core speeds.

The frequency is not same as performance. I can get A Intel Pentium and overclock it to 5Ghz but its not same as 9600k running at 5ghz. Its kind of like the RPM in a car.

i just recently upgraded from i5 4670k to i5 9600k. its so wonderful! can only recommend!

Stock (3.4Ghz turbo up to 3.8Ghz) It BSOD on 4.2Ghz and 1.25v It BSOD after few hours even on OC Genie (4Ghz)

It BSOD because it didnt have enough voltage. Try 1.30v and 1.35v. Im running my 4690k at 4.4 with 1.35v
2019-02-14 23:07
I'm using hyper 212 evo @ 1.35v (i7 3770k) idles at like 50-55c but idgaf (goes up to 75-80c in cs) could probably be better with a better cooler been using it for like a year, not a single problem yet I think you'll notice the difference from 3.8 to 4.2

I'm using CPU Thermalright Macho Rev. B and temps are awesome (30 idle on stock) but my CPU unit is terrible for OC
2019-02-14 22:55
neither is mine tbh I get 4.4 max at 1.35v (I set it to 4.3 though) for me it's worth it, and I don't feel the need to upgrade because it's good enough (until it dies, hopefully not soon)

that CPU will give me same FPS in csgo as current i5 :(
2019-02-14 22:58
Don't think you're going to have a huge performance change by upgrading gpu, doubt it will be worth the money if you're doing it purely for csgo. Processor upgrade however will make a noticeable difference. If you're upgrading purely for csgo then I don't really think its worth the money since your current rig should run it smoothly.

It runs pretty okay for CSGO, but soon I'm getting 240Hz monitor and need more FPS. I also like playing Battlefield where my CPU is doing terrible. I see getting new i5/i7 9th gen will be better option for me.
2019-02-14 23:00
How much fps do you need with 240hz? And is that really something to prioritize over a great cpu/gpu? I actually upgraded from a 970 to a rtx 2070 today and I can say that the difference is insane :) I did it for games like Apex and battlefield who are heavily gpu dependent however.

i need stable 240FPS :) maybe is not that much important over 144hz but i got Acer KG251QDBMIIPX for less than $250 great to hear updating gtx970 makes such a difference. hope 2060 will do good too
2019-02-14 23:23
The question is if you really need 240hz? 144hz will be a huge difference if you play 60 right now, but if 240 is only a bit more expensive then it might be worth. 2060 is definitely a good card!

ya, this is very strange but that acer uses same panel as $500 benqs for some reason it's available only in few regions it's only ~$20 more than 144hz monitors there so i'll give it a try i can always refund it in 14days :P

I am using i5-4690 now. I had some thinks about buying used 4790k but then I decided to buy something new because I bought this PC in 2015 and I think that it's ok to upgrade pc in 4-5 years but I am waiting for end of this "arms race" and, possibly, ddr5 ram and pci-e 4.0 (amd zen 2 etc.) btw I have stable 250-300 fps on very low settings, 4x msaa and trilinear, so it's still ok for cs

For csgo that's a downgrade, given that you would run both at the same clock speed. Hyperthreading decreases fps in source engine, if not multitasking (streaming etc).

Overclocked DDR3 is capable of DDR4 jedec speeds and beyond. I'm running 16gb DDR3 at 2133 MHz cl 10. It's only the 3200+ mhz ddr4 that make a difference. But still the effect is under 15% in fps, in cpu limited conditions, relative to the cpu speed. DDR4 is not a gift from god

CSGO doesnt care about the extra threads of the i7. Just buy a brand new i3 if you want the best fps. Better to overclock the shit out of your i5 imo. Should get 4.5Ghz easily at like 1.35v. Get a nice cooler for it.

thx for your reply I have great cooler np with temps, 30 idle with stock values, 50 with 1.35 voltage. unfortunately my CPU is terrible overclocker, 4.2Ghz @1.35v is max i can get i will either buy new gen i5 and new mobo or nothing, fuck amd

If you are going to replace it soon anyway, you can push towards 1.5v voltage, if you can keep temps under 70c. If your mobo vrm is weak, it will put a strain on it and it could give in at the long run, but for short term I'd say that's relatively safe. Consider delidding for doing that to lower temps. The more you push voltage, the more important it is to keep cool. Stock voltage even mid 80s would be okay for long term with some passive cooler IMO. If your mobo is super cheap, I don't recommend it though.
