Windows 7: How do I flash BIOS (Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge CPU)?

What you can try in the mean time if the bios has this feature.

Have all your cores turbo up to the maximum speed your cpu supports, I believe it`s 3.8 GHz.

Not sure if a non K version will let you do that.

The rest of your hardware looks fine, but what PSU are you using ? It`s not listed.

No need to worry about BIOS flashing.

The 2600K is a hellacious overclocker if that's what you have in mind. You might save a few bucks over the 3770K and be able to clock it higher than the 3770K.

I frankly cannot recall if the H67 is suitable for overclocking. You better get that nailed down. You may need a Z series board to overclock a 3770K. If you have to buy a new motherboard in addition to a new CPU, why go with old tech at all? Look at Haswell or Skylake.

It just seems like going from 2600 non K to 3770 non K is pretty much pointless, given the cost.

Exactly this

My PSU is a no name 750 watt 80 plus bronze certified I think. It seems fine since it is able to run my 550W GPU pretty fine.

The turbo boost is activated but this feature is not constant. I run at 3.8Ghz sometimes but When I play games it's most likely clocked at ~3.40Ghz.

And that`s exactly how it`s supposed to work, the cores only go up to 3.8 if and when they have to.

1st question: Well ive heard that Ivy bridge boost 20% performance and huge in GPU. I dont need Built in GPU. Ivy has integrated USB3.0, PCI 3.0 and thunderbird. Is it really worth to wait for the new Ivy Bridge i5 3570k? versus i5 2500k?
