There's always a reason to give more money to the jews

to get a faster processor

no

>>51497447
You OC it?
>>
At the moment, I'd say stick with the 2500k til the next iteration of processors. I've been using my 2700k since it came out
>>
>>51497492
Not currently. motherboard is fucked up and won't save any bios changes. I plan on getting a new mobo
>>
I've been using an i7 920 since 2009 and it still kicks some 4th gen i5 asses
>>
>>51497547
Get the mobo and OC, most people can easily reach 4.5GHz on these (mine included) and it's yet to bottleneck me.
>>
>>51497515
This. Until the next die shrink it's probably not worth upgrading.
>>
>>51497447
No point, I have a Phenom II x6 @ stock clock and it does everything I do. Wait until a gen of cpu's make a big leap in tech.
>>
There's plenty of reasons. Just probably not for your use cases.
>>
>>51497547
that's because you have a cheap-as-fuck psu and your cmos battery is shot
>>
the 2500k was a godly processor. keep it until the next process shrink
>>
>>51497547
replace the battery, probably some knockoff battery inside because mine lasted 9-10 years
>>
That CPU will bottleneck

Yes if you have the money do it faggot 15-35% gains are in your future.

i wonder what this new Sexually Transmitted disease might be.

it's called japan, does that mean all japs have it?

don't mind me. just shitposting in a shitthread about a shit product released by shitty people and marketed by even shittier people only to be bought by idiotic sacks of shit.
>>
>>51497447
be a good goy.
buy a new cpu.
>>
>>51497447
no

at this point you might as well wait for kaby lake and avoid the currently buggy Z170 boards
>>
>>51501125
>buggy Z170 boards
Buggy how?
>>
>>51497447

Do you plan to do anything that requires more CPU power? If not, then don't upgrade.
>>
>>51501141

he means buggy as in "he can't afford them so they're buggy with his current lifestyle"
>>
>>51497447
Not upgrading annually is literally antisemitic.
>>
>>51501141
They WERE buggy with constant BIOS updates and shit, especially from asus.
Now everything is pretty much sorted and they're fine.
>>
>>51497447
PC hardware is like cars.
this is like asking "i have car x, is there any reason to upgrade?"
nobody knows! how would we? we don't know what you need it for.
>>
Sandy, Ivy and almost Hassy user here.

Stick with it.
It's as fast as a Hassy in many tests.

>bought a 4690K for $40
>Look for a Z97 Mini-ITX
>No Asus Z97-A boards sold anymore.
Sigh...
I just want to have a small gaming rig with M.2...
>>
>>51497447

6600k or a 6700k would be a decent upgrade. Problem is no games really need it minus a few.

Probably good idea to just wait for the GPU die size in about 4-6 months then upgrade. But if you do upgrade to Skylake now it's a decent performance boost.

jesus christ..kill yourself.

>>51504010
Is the word Hassy triggering your autism?
>>
>>51504018
It's triggering every sane person
>>
>>51504025
can confirm, feeling very triggered right now
>>
>>51504025
Your autism circlejerk ain't among the sane people.

Oh look it's this thread again.

Your processor won't be worth replacing for the next 3 years at least.

>>51497488
You can't /thread yourself, shill.

Mfw i5 2500k is more expensive than all of the 4th Gen i5s on amazon
>>
Motherboard features missing from a socket 1155 motherboard such as M.2, USB 3.1 et cetera are the only reason to upgrade from a 2500k.
>>
it's very worth replacing the 2500k if you do CPU intensive tasks. if you only care about video games then it doesn't really matter since most video games are limited by your GPU. the 2500k isn't that great, but there's virtually no demand for faster processors for the average user.
>>
>>51497447
No, unless you want a new mobo for new usb-connectors or whatever.

I threw my 2600k into secondary computer and built a new computer mainly for shits and giggles.
