Windows 7: Overclocking Site Solves Mystery Behind Higher Ivy Bridge Temperatures

I have to wonder whether an upgrade from a Core i5-2500k to a new Ivy Bridge would really justify the cost anyway for the small performance gain achieved.

Sure, it uses less power, but we are talking pennies per day if the machine runs under load 24x7. (I calculated approx $1.50 savings per MONTH).

It really is a bummer on the lack of overclockability on these chips. I know many enthusiasts who simply won't touch it if they cannot push it.

Anyway though many enthusists will publically trash Intel for their gaff, privately they've already honed their excuse for why they upgraded...

3- Hey I'm just checking out the chip
2- A friend bought my old system
1- I got it for free

At any rate I'm sure the "overheating" issue will be fixed promptly, and business will be back to usual.... chips flying off the shelves

Anyone who is running X58 or SB would be foolish to "upgrade" to IB. I sold my X58 rig early this year but when I build a "new" rig it will be a SB based (2600K) as I have seen "gem" chips that unlock to 5.6/5.7ghz for sale on OCAU and the new IB chips it appears are for the most part only OC'ing to 4.8ghz.
I read somewhere that you can (possibly) remove the "cap" from these new chips and shim them resulting in lower temps but don't know that I would want to risk that.
This is an Intel "tic" step so I'm thinking I'll wait for the next "toc" step. Maybe then Intel will go back to a solder instead of paste when they realise a lot of people simply won't buy a chip that underperforms compared to a previous release aka SB.

I don't think it underperforms, simply that it runs hotter. That's like dissing a liquid cooled computer system.

I've read that the actual GHz isn't as high as SB but the performance is higher, they showed benchmark scores to back up the claim.

More testing results will confirm or disprove.

In my humble opinion this is what happens when the only competition to Intel is squeezed out. Now Intel can take shortcuts to profitability at the expense of the small minority of enthusiasts. AMD always understood this as the underdog and produced products with outstanding overclocking potential and bang for the buck and is hopefully fighting to re-enter and we this time should all be pulling for both companies because competition breeds true advancements and controls runaway costs!
