It's fast like Jesus.

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.

THE MUST CONSIDER BUDGET GAMING CPU W-STRONGER PERFORMANCE THAN ANY FX CHIP AND NOT MUCH DIFF FROM i5 760 TO i5 4670K WHEN OC'D!

Posted

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...

Great for Overclockers who like to tweak stuff

Posted

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.

My first Intel CPU and I'm glad I have it.

Posted

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.

Great CPU!

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+

Awesome CPU! Definately worth buying

Posted

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

About the Fastest thing on the planet for the price!

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!

Best Gaming CPU for the money

Posted

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
