Haswell is faster, more powerful than ivy bridge, it is the newer line of processors. If you have the budget go for a 4th gen CPU like the 4670k or the 4770k and like jacob said they have different sockets, for a 4th gen cpu, they use 1150 sockets so you will need a Z87 motherboard.

Good way to put it. The sockets are also different, the Ivy-Bridge CPUs are LGA1155, and the Haswell CPUs are LGA1150. The Ivy-Bridge CPUs are better in OCing from what I've heard though, but that's about it.

Not worth it to upgrade. If new yes.
Slightly faster per clock.
The biggest improvement was on-board video and power control.

Haswel doesn't overclock as much because the smaller die size has less surface area for cooler contact.

I'd say that unless you wanted to re-do your entire build, no. The Ivy-Bridge CPUs aren't bad, they will still give great perfomance with today's games, but at this point most of them are not as future proof as the Haswell stuff.

Agreed, to upgrade your CPU you will need a new mobo as well + reinstalling the heatsink with new brackets, a waste of time and money.

You have an ivy bridge, don't upgrade to haswell.
Not worth the money.
You will gain ~10% performance and a bit of extra overclockability at the cost of a new proc and mobo.
Wait for broadwell, see what they are about.
I doubt your ivy bridge is making you suffer.

It depends? what do you have?
I said it's not worth upgrading FROM ivy bridge TO haswell.
Otherwise, just get a haswell.

Alright, I'll take your word.
Why Broadwell be a worthy upgrade? How much better is it?

well saying i7 means nothing, what is the actual CPU. and most likely not for what you actually do, you may notice a difference if you stream, record, render and play at the same time but otherwise don't upgrade.

I have a i5-3570k.
Okay, so I won't upgrade the processor.
It'd be pretty cool if I have one Ivy Bridge PC and one Haswell PC though. Maybe I'll build a PC every time a new architecture comes out.

pointless to upgrade for the cost of a new mobo and CPU, plus the hassle. Haswell offers slightly more performance, approx. like Ivy+200MHz. Ivy is also generally easier to overclock by approx. 200MHz or so. So almost no difference.

But, if you're like me and like to investigate things, then go for it. I'm currently swapping my i5-3570k (which is awesome) for the Xeon E3-1230-V2!

How much of a performance boost would you get by overclocking a i5-3570k?
I don't know what clock speed I want to go for, what would be a safe temperature at which I would get a significant change in everyday use?

No, that is incorrect. Haswell was also a rather big upgrade in a architecture-point-of-view on the CPU side aswell.

I think we were talking about performance, not architecture, and the biggest change in performance was graphics.

I think we all know it went to 22nm, among other architecture changes.

The o/c varies from CPU to CPU, but mine easily hit 4.4GHz @ 1.14v, max temps of 60C with the Coolermaster evo. Performance boost is effectively the same as the o/c, about 20-25% at 4.4GHz.

I had to go up to 1.25v to hit 4.7GHz, which creates much more heat, so wasn't worth it, 4.4GHz was a good compromise.

I've recently changed to the Xeon E3-1230-V2 (straight swap) and I'm very pleased with it's performance at stock clocks (3.5GHz), which generally exceeds my I5 @ 4.4GHz as it has hyperthreading, but cost slightly less. This might be another one to consider.

Is there any noticeable difference when doing every day things?
