You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
My inner transportation planner is so excited. Can't wait to give this a try during Epic!
I'm thinking about getting a 1600X or 1500. The 1600X is a 95W part, and the 1500 is 65W.
If I don't OC the 1600X, would it actually use much more power than the 1500? Would it likely get close to the 95W rating?
My main interest is switching to a compact and quiet mATX system, so I'd want to keep cooler size and noise down.
Leaked benchmarks have the single threaded performance of the 1600X to be 31% better than my 2500K, and 143% better multithreaded performance. Finally, a significant upgrade from Sandy Bridge for less than the retail price of Sandy Bridge when it was new!
