5 out of 5 eggsUpgrade from a q6600 for gaming w/benchmarks

Pros: ive been running a q6600 besl modded to 3ghz with 8gb of ddr2 set with a ssd 120gb, 1tb for game storage and a gtx 560ti which has been working well for me even with games like battlefield 4, call of duty ghosts, tomb raider etc at medium to high settings at 1920x1200 res and some fxaa and some AA. Lately though its been looking long in the tooth with some stuttering, freezing and system locking up or even shutting down once when turning on at times. I decided to look at upgrading and was deciding between a fx 6300, a fx 8320 or 8350 and bouncing possibly an i5.

I setup my wife with a new motherboard, fx 6300 and 8gb of ddr3 since her q6700 and motherboard was only up to 4gb of ddr2 and to max her out to 8 on her board was going to be over $200 bucks! It improved her performance quite a bit with the newer gtx 470 I was able to get for her with a trade. She was playing WOW at 1920x1080 everything maxed out and getting mid 30's in major cities.
However, when I switched her current setup, I had to do a reinstall on a new hdd and take her old hdd and make shortcut links to WOW and her other programs till she can reinstall.(she still hasn't reinstalled WOW yet.)

I really didn't want to go through a reinstall and I have read and experienced with intel chips and chipsets that I can usually switch hardware without reinstalls. Also, because I was using my current power supply (PowerX 600watt), and I would need a more expensive motherboard to run fx 8, not looking to overclock, and I read from quite a bit of the heatsink being loud and recommending a different cooler, It looked better to go with a high stock I5 and a basic motherboard. I went ahead and grabbed a msi h81m-e33 motherboard and added 2 8gb sticks of ddr3 1600 Kingston hyperx ram to that.

I decided to benchmark my current q6600 setup at 3ghz with sleeping dogs, batman arkham origins (PhysX off) and tomb raider all maxed out including AA and filtering to look at differences. And then ran the same benchmarks with the new CPU, motherboard and ram.

Sleeping dogs: q6600 min-17.9 max-38 ave-31.6
i5-4460 min-21.9 max-38.4 ave-32.3

Batman AO: q6600 min-25 max-94 ave-68
i5-4460 min-46 max-98 ave-72

Tomb Raider: q6600 min-29.1 max-56 ave-40
i5-4460 min-30 max-54 ave-40.6

The biggest jump was double minimal frames on Batman and playing all my games, I had no micro stuttering or the game freezing up or pausing. On Batman the intro plays at the beginning, the sound use to break up and the Bethesda logo when the other would play really choppy like a slideshow on the q6600 while the i5 no more sound issue, and all played flawless.

The biggest teller is on WOW Ultra everything 1920x1200 in city areas I was getting 60FPS! That doubled for me in the switch as well.

General computing with a SSD I noticed slight speed with webpage loads but nothing night and day really.

Overall still happy with the upgr

Cons: Could only wish it was cheaper really.

Other Thoughts: For most single player gpu bound games, general work (web browsing, hd movies, Netflix, youtube music playing), this old core2quad's still get the job done fairly well. If you have a great motherboard that does ddr3 and can overclock, id say keep the platform. I upgraded because of instability, lock ups and stutters while playing games was ruining my experience. If you especially want to play MMORPG RTS and play competitive multiplayer games this i5 will definitely do fine.

While from my benchmarking I didn't see too much of a difference, I think if the graphic settings were tweaked, the i5 would see more gains. Also having a higher minimum frame rate really improved my overall gaming experience. Plus my system is very cool and superquiet (now with my new Corsair Carbide Spec 01 case!) compared to my old Lenovo q6600 rig that was like a jet engine space heater!

If you can spend the money and play online games and just do general work don't render, i5 otherwise if you render go fx 8 or a i7.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU, Loud Fan

Pros: The processor works great!

Cons: The fan is really loud.

Other Thoughts: I would rate this 5 stars if the fan wasn't so loud. Even when it is off, and I spin the blade, it makes a slight noise. Surprisingly, other reviewers said the fan was pretty silent, so maybe I got unlucky.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for gaming

Pros: This thing is just amazing. It has no problem running any game. I can run CPU intensive games like GTA IV just fine with mods. It is obviously a lot faster than my old Pentium E2140. No need to spend any more money on the 4570 or 4670 (unless 4670K or 4690K), this is the best i5 you can get for the price (unless aforementioned CPUs are on sale for a lower price). Will not bottleneck any GPU (unless it's a dual GPU setup) It blows away any AMD CPU.

Cons: None. Absolutely none. About the stock cooler, read other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why most people hate the stock cooler. It does an amazing job for me. I've never seen it go over 63C while gaming under the stock cooler. 32C idle. It's pretty silent too.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board for the Price

Pros: - 8 USB 3.0 Ports
- Keyboard/Mouse Bios is a nice change from basic bios
- OC Genie is Convienent if you're going to overclock
- 4 system fan ports
- PCI-e 3.0/2.0
- Everything worked right out of the box
- MSI Fastboot is pretty cool to go directly to bios
- Eco Friendly
This is a great board, I have a Haswell i5 & GTX760 paired with the board and I've had no issues at all. Easy install and configuration. I really like the bios! Board stays at about 35 degrees in my mid case.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This is my first MSI build and I have no complaints at all thus far. The board is performing very well and everything works as it should.
