folks after reading this, i need to know whats going to be a wiser move. going to 1150 haswell or the previous 1155

 

im getting the idea that from this article the haswell is a disappointment and not worth the money over the 1155.

 

it needs to be for a build for performance for editing of all sorts and oc'g

Most of the reviews I've read suggest it's not worth upgrading from Ivy Bridge (and even Sandy Bridge if you're an over-clocker). 

 

If you're on anything older then you should see a decent performance increase and possibly better power usage.

 

My main concern with Haswell is the problem that many have had keeping them cool under load. Every time there is a die shrink then cooling becomes ever harder.

I took the leap and bought the i7 4770K.like most reviews, there's not much gain, I'm a tech geek and always get the latest hardware. As for cooling, i got it purring along at4.4Ghz in my single loop with my 770 4Gb card and its in the mid 30's.

so,if you're a tech geek upgrade, otherwise sandy and Ivy is more than ebough. :-)

I'd rather get the latest microprocessor and go for the i7-4770K. I find that the i7-4770K is a lot easier to research than for example, the i7-3770K.
