Astonishing Performance, even after owning Ivy Bridge

Posted

Pros: Very fast, Runs Decently Cool, Hexa-core

Cons: Tad bit expensive

First, I have to say, even from coming from a 3570k, this CPU was so much faster that the difference between the two was night and day. The CPU runs decently cool for being a 22nm Ivy, but still overclocks very nicely on air. I am using a Noctua NH-D14 2011 CPU Cooler and I was able to idle around mid 30's and Prime95'ed at 68°C @ 4.5GHz. This was a very nice chip to overclock with. There is still a chance to get a dud though so YMMV. Gaming: Newer games these days are making use of the extra core and hyperthreading and I've noticed big jumps in FPS as well as my minimum FPS. Games that are heavily CPU dependent will love these chips. (Metro, Total War, Sid Meier's, Battlefield, Skyrim,...

insanely fast

Pros: 6 cores/12 threads, OC

Cons: sucks lots of power and creates a lot of heat

this is a great cpu for a workstation. I do a lot of hardware virtualization on my computer so I can always use all the extra threads the only small issue with the thing is being able to cool it, I have this cpu running at 4.5 GHz @ 1.4v and my h100 only can manage keeping it at about 82C

Pros: ABSOLUTELY NO CONS THIS THING IS AMAZING

Cons: NONE

:)4.7ghz stable and cool 49 to 60c maxed depending what im doing 30 40c Idle overclock. This is for high quality gaming and lightning fast video editing. compared to Intel Xeon E5-2660 Sandy Bridge-EP 2.2GHz (3GHz Turbo Boost) 20MB L3 Cache LGA 2011 95W 8-Core Server Processor priced at over 1000 its just as fast i think what i use at work. Temps different depending on your CPU cooling hardware mine is water cooling Thank You Great CPU under 1000.

Pros: Overclocks just like 3960x but for half the price

Cons: Out of price reach for most

Super overclocker, I have it running 4.6ghz on stock volts and it does not produce that much heat. If you require the extra cores/threads this is a must.
