100% Positive Reviews

Pros: It's fast.

Cons: It's not fast.

It's fast. Not really much to say, got all the features like PCI-E 3.0, Quad-Core, Unlocked, 22 nm, faster memory clocks.

Dislike all you want, you know I just summarized every review about the i5 3570k.

Pros: ALL I CAN SAY THIS WAS A REMARKABLE CHIP! 4 OPTIMAL THERMALS+BEST OC TO 4.7-5.0 GHz EASY! NO BOTTLENECK (Check Into DELID 2 Change TIM)_EZ Run SLI 980

Cons: ITS AN INTEL....K SKU...HOW COULD THERE BE A CON...THEY'RE THE BEST QUAD CORE GAMING CHIPS, BEST IVY-B INTEL "CORE i SERIES" THAT CRUSH'S 2016 TITLES!

ALL I CAN SAY THIS WAS A REMARKABLE CHIP! DID "DELID" MOD 2 CHANGE OUT INTEL "TIM" UNDER IHS 4 BETTER THERMALS LIKE PREV i5 2500K & GET 4.7-5.0 GHz OC EZ! NO BOTTLENECK! SLI 980's+MORE! I BUILT AN ULT "CON-SLOW KILLER" CLIENT PC JUST USING "NEW+USED" BUT WELL TAKEN CARE OF PARTS, HE BEGGED ME WANTING GTX 780 TI/980 PERFORMANCE BUT ON BUDGET AROUND $500-$600 MAX...SO I SET MY GOAL TO NOT COMPRIMIZE PERFORMANCE WITH "CHEAP" PARTS, RATHER GREAT DEALS OF PROVEN QUALITY PARTS! I FOUND MSI Z77A-GD65 MOBO, SAVED $$ GOING SANDY BRIDGE OR IVY, BUT SINCE I FELT PCIE 3.0 A MUST WE ELECTED TO GO THAT ROUTE! KEEP IN MIND THIS IS 2.5.2016 RECENT JOB SO THIS INFO+BENCH VIDEO IS CURRENT & I DID A BUNCH OF TESTING FROM PENTIUM'S, i3 & i5 IVY BRIDGE, SO 2 KEEP BUDGET AROUND THAT CONSOLE PRICES, BUT GET 780 TI/980 PERFORMANCE @ 1080p 144Hz MONITOR...THROUGH MAGIC OF "KNOWING HOW TO BUY/SELL EBAY" I WON SOME AUCTIONS GETTING THE MOBO FOR NEW...YES NEW FOR $50 (OPEN BOX), WE WENT i3-3130 (3GHz Base/3.3+ Boost Clocks) & U MAYBE THINKING "i3" ***? WELL LEARN TECH IF U CANT BELIEVE IT BECAUSE ITS A NERFED i5, BUT HUGE BENEFIT BEING THAT GAMES ARE MOVING OR UTILIZING MORE THAN TYPICAL 1-2 CORE/THREADS ONTO QUAD CORE SUPPORT, WELL ESSENTIALLY THIS IS BOTH! A DUAL CORE AT ITS BASE BUT WITH "HT" HYPER THREADING TO ALLOW "SOME FUTURE PROOFING" AND OPTION TO SAVE UP FOR i5-3570K / i7 3770K CPU LATER! SIMPLY WE GOT THE VERY STRONG i3-3230 (I WAS ABLE TO GET A STABLE/SOLID 24/7 OC via BIOS MOD+PATCH TO 3.72 GHz, WHICH GAVE IMPRESSIVE GAINS EVEN IF IT DON'T SEEM MUCH, RESULTED IN AN AVE 5-10 FPS @ 1080p 60FPS CONTINUAL IN BF4, COD BO3, TITANFALL, STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT, ETC WHERE OUR FPS HUNG @ 90+FPS, ILL XPLANE IT SEC) - SO NOW IVE EXPLAINED THAT SOME I GOT THE i3 ON EBAY THROUGH A VERY TRUSTWORTHY SOURCE FOR $45+FREE SHIP! SO WE'RE @ $100 FOR BOTH BAD ASS HEAVY OVERCLOCKING Z-SERIES MOBO (He'll Take Advantage Of That When Upgrading to i5/i7 3770K) AND SUPER STONG i3, NEXT WAS FINDING GPU(S) AND FOUND LOCALLY x2 ASUS GTX 660 DIRECTCU II TOP 2GB (KEPLAR) IN SLI [OVER-CLOCKED BEYOND 670s EACH CARD_VRAM SEARCH PROVED MEM IC'S (HYNIX) WERE 6600MHz NATIVE!

SO WE GOT STABLE @ 1203 MHz CORE, 6 WITH SOME NEGOTIATING I GOT EM FOR $95 EACH! SO $200 FOR AN SLI RIG @ THIS BUDGET IS KILLER! NOW WE'RE @ $300 & JUST NEED RAM-PSU-COOLER, CASE.

Pros: Great Overclocker with great performance

Cons: Not all chips are made the same

I like this i5 as I got it to 4.5GHz with 1.3v and I was using a air cooler but I decided to use a 120mm Cooler Master Liquid cooler as I wanted to clean up my case as it had a side window and this CPU was all out a great CPU for people liking to tweak and do what they like with there CPU.

Pros: Voltage and Temperature Headroom, Integrated graphics

Cons: I bought mine used so can't say if it's worth the 200-225 it is normally was

Prior to this CPU I had an Athlon 640 and then an Phenom 955, and needless to say this was a much needed upgrade.
The ability to go up to about 1.4v (for everyday use) and near 90c at max load gives quite a lot of room to over-clock (you can even over-clock the CPU using the stock heat-sink).
Due to only having the h100i and two Corsair SP120's I'm able to do 4.7Ghz @ 1.36v, this is hopefully going to increase once I am able to afford a custom loop.
Sadly enough I've actually had multiple occurrences that I had to use the integrated graphics, and oh boy am I glad this CPU had it.

Pros: fast, power efficient, great at overclocking

My first overclocking was on this CPU, and this CPU IS AMAZING at overclocking. I got it to 4.4 ghz no problem

Posted

Pros: Fast, Handles everything I throw at it, Great for gaming, web browsing, photoshop, and everything inbetween

Cons: Can run a bit hot

I bought this CPU for my first computer desktop and have not been disappointed. This is a great CPU, it handles every task with ease, I never have to worry about it not being able to perform. On average, i have a minimum of 10 tabs open on Chrome, and plenty of programs running in the background and it barely breaks a sweat. I recommend this to anyone who wants great performance and great reliability. 

 

My system:

i5 3570K

GA-Z77X-UD5H

G.Skill Sniper 8Gb Low Voltage

Crucial M4 128Gb

WD Black 500Gb

Corsair GS 600W

XFX 7870Ghz 

CM Hyper 212+

Pros: 4.5 GHz at 1.27v, Quad Core, nice stock temps

This was a great buy, I wasn't sure whether to purchase this or a 3770k, but I decided on this and I love it! Can reach 4.5 GHz easily, and has performed well in all the benchmarks i have tested

Posted

Pros: FAST! Does 4.5GHz without a second glance back...

Cons: Isn't Free!

This is a very nice and fast CPU... I see various reports on temperature, but mine runs cool at 4.5 GHz and rock solid doing BOINC tasks 24/7. Nothing but good things to say about this processor. I run it on an GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD4H and it's awesome!

Pros: Great Speeds, never close to full load during gaming, and loves to be OC

Cons: Can't think of any

This by far the best bang for your buck when looking to build a gaming Rig. If you put the money into an aftermarket heatsink and OC you will not need a new CPU for many many years. This thing is simply a beast

Pros: performance of four real solid cores without any gimmicks. on average runs on lower voltages than previous generation.

Cons: documented heat / TIM issues.

Group 'B' 3570K chip. 4.4GHz @ 1.368V.. mad.gif

CM TX3 with dual 92mm fans, grabbed a matching second fan to go with the OEM TX3 cooler.
140mm top fan with 120mm back fan; AS5 thermal paste.

current temps: (idle)
case 23C
core package 29C / lowest core 23C.

current temps: (gaming max'd)
case 23-24C
core package 76C / highest core 76C

================

OK swapping of 3570K's is complete.

NEW:
Costa Rica
batch # 3237B882
serial # MC240246A2005
4.4GHz @ 1.256v (not verified stability yet, might go up or might go down)
idle voltage currently @ 0.920v


OLD:
Costa Rica
batch # 3228B572
serial # 3E221049A2015
4.4GHz @ 1.368v
idle voltage @ 1.060

=================

OK guys and gals....
this chip is a winner already and I haven't even lowered the voltages yet as I think I can.
just ran some Crysis 3 and max temp was 63C hottest core and 63C package.
the old chip was 77-84C max.

this is the exact same set-up with only a different chip; same paste same cooling solution.
so 4.4GHz @ 1.256V with the option to drop a tad lower..

so now thinking about it I wonder if my chip was somewhat defective or just that bad...?
the vdroop on this chip because of the lower voltage is more like what I'm use to seeing, more the norm.
