Maybe people will not figure out that if you overclock the intel chips clock for clock it destroys us.
Hokies83, if it makes you feel any better, your 3770k at 5.1Ghz with the H100 is clearly faster than my FX8350 with my H100 at 4.7Ghz. Shoot, I can clock mine to 5Ghz and you still beat me. I paid $219 for the 8350 and you paid ?? for the 3770k? Not trying to be a smart "donkey" but you are surely going to beat me with a chip that cost @$100 more.
BTW, those "experts" that say a 8350 beats a 3770k are plain wrong. The 8350 improves on the 8150 (most would say that isn't difficult to do!). Where AMD finally did something right is priced the 8350 at $199 (there are markups now but it will probably settle at $199). I think the 8350 is a legitimate contender to the 2500k and is within range of the 3570k. Beating the 3770k? Perhaps a STOCK 3770k vs a highly OC'd 8350 but with a chip like yours (5.1) I'm always going to be in your rearview mirror
Don't you just love the Intel vs AMD vs Intel vs AMD rhetoric?
