    I5 2500k user here OC to 4.8ghz stable
    im having ahard time finding reason to upgrade to newer cpu's there i just not a big enough performance boost to warrent upgradding both cpu and motherboard..
    I do wish i got myslef the I7 at that time though to get HT.

    im instead pondering in getting soome cheap dmb motherboard and cpu and make a small "cluster server" to run CLI compression on

    I was like i7-2700K @ 5.3 GHz, now I'm i7-3770K @ 4.9 GHz (well 4.6 GHz most of the time - to be on safe side). And performance-wise it's equal - i.e. clock to clock performance is not the same and Ivy Bridge is 200 to 300 MHz faster than Sandy Bridge.
    To me, improved thermal interface of CPU (poor TIM cause hot temps on Ivy Bridge and Haswell) and a better ITX motherboard (better layout, more fan headers and features) might be the reason to consider the upgrade. The cost-benefit ratio is poor, but since I'm a huge fan of it, I'll do it!

    being low-level programmer, i prefer to upgrade computers as substantial CPU architecture improvements arrive, i.e. Nehalem -> SB -> Haswell -> Skylake. this allows me to develop software for computers that will become popular a few years later

    i7-4790K is out and delivers greatly reduced temperatures for the same operating frequencies. Dunno about overclock improvements, but after seeing one test there's not much.

    Yep, Skylake will feature DDR4 - might be a game changer in terms of compression performance. In addition, upcoming Broadwell will feature Iris Pro Graphics with its 128 MB of eDRAM (L4 cache) - this may change something too.

    I'm not sure I'm looking forward to the second one, if it means I have to learn how to program a GPU...

    Current TSX implementation if flawed. Intel says they will release CPUs with proper TSX implementation in future.
