Some questions about the i5 3570

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi
1. How many years do you think this CPU will last (WITHOUT overclock), I mean run games at ultra like GTA V, BF4...?

2. Intel says it has Turbo up to 3.8GHz, but I read somewhere that it reaches 3.8 only when two cores are active, but 3.6 when four core are active... is this true? can someone confirm?
Thanks

I think it's a tiny bit better for the multipliers: 38, 38, 37, 36. You can configure something about that. It's not locked to these values, it's just what the BIOS sets them to by default. What's the highest you'll be able to set it to, I don't know. I've heard something about "4 bins above normal", which perhaps means 42, 42, 41, 40?

Those four values are about how many cores are active. If all cores are on, it's the last value, 3.6 GHz by default. Windows can put some of them to sleep, and then the higher values will get used.

Another thing is, you can tweak BCLK a little. It's 100 MHz by default, and the 40 multiplier gets you 4.0 GHz. If it's stable with for example 104 MHz BCLK, it will be 4.16 GHz.

Thanks for the answers thumb.gif

Another thing, the i5 3470 is @ 3.2 so maybe there is not a difference now between the 3470 and 3570 but will that 200MHz be important in the future (the price difference between the two CPUs is ~$27.5)?

i dont think it will be much difference.. BTW have you considered haswell?

or even a k version and a bit of an OC like 4.5?

When you get right down to it, getting an i5-3570 (non-K) is a perfectly viable option, especially if you can find a good deal for it.

By all appearances it seems that you're the type of guy who keeps a rig for 4-5 years, and the difference between the current Ivy Bridge and the upcoming Haswell chips will be minimal over that time scale.

Depending on the motherboard you get, you can have it run at 36/36/35/34 using an B75 or H77 board, or overclock it to 40/40/39/38 with a Z77 board. That kind of CPU performance should keep you in good condition for the expected time frame you'll own it for.

I see that you're rocking a 9800 GTX video card, obviously you ought to upgrade that in the near future as well. Something good in the ~$200 range would be the GTX 660, which should have enough power to play most games at 1080p with decent eye candy for a few years.

This is the setup I'll be getting:

Intel i5 3570
Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H or GA-Z77M-D3H
G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ares Dual Channel
MSI GTX660 OC 2GB
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200RPM 64MB Sata III
SeaSonic 520W S12II-520
CPU cooler: Arctic Alpine 11 PLUS (I know, not the best but the CPU doesn't come with a stock cooler so it's just something to get me started).

Kind of an unrelated question here, but must 3570k setups I've seen use either 560s or 660s; how would an i5 do coupled with my 680?
