Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

Rubbish TIM detected

thesuperegoist

Pros: High performance, very stable

Cons: The TIM in the cpu that was really awful, very warm even without overclocking and heavy load

This cpu is really good for oc'ing and really stable too. Except the TIM. To overclock this cpu, you will need a very high peformance air cooler to oc it to 4.3GHZ. To overclock it to moar higher. You may need a custom loop water cooler. If not, your pc will just like an oven -- very hot.
Perfect!

Great lasting product.

Intel Core i7-870 Processor 2.93 GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1156

Pros: Still pretty fast, beat out AMD Vishera in single-threaded workloads, overclocks really well, reliable and long-lasting CPU, rare.

Cons: Power consumption is out of the charts when compared to newer Intel CPUs, gets pretty hot when overclocked and thus need high-end cooler for 4Ghz+ OCs

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

“I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...” --Kosenator

“I almost got the more expensive unlocked i5 3470, But I instead decided on this. The price was much lower and it has twice the cores. I do not see why people are so down on AMD's eight core FX CPU's, This chip puts out massive performance, And runs easy at 4ghz for a much lower price than Intel's i5 CPU's. The only drawback is it uses twice the wattage as the i5, But it also has twice the power.” --P-39 Airacobra
