I tend to agree with the above. If your hardware supports, the only upgrade to 3rd gen that makes sense is the 3770 and it's so marginally faster as to not really be worth it. Is there some instruction set or feature you are doing this for? I am not that nuanced in the differences, but can recall the i7 2600 being legendary for a long time, and it still holds up.

I found the problem. I bent some pins on the motherboard and it doesn't support third gen, only second gen.
