I wanted to build a 'beast' as a digital darkroom. I don't game on my PC.

I'm far from being an IT luddite but I don't for a minute claim to understand the finer details of the differences between this and the K version (bar the obvious unlocked status of the K). I knew I had no desire to overclock and various reviews talk about functionality in this chip that is disabled in the K version. It's that functionality that I am clueless about, I know I have it, I don't know (or care) what it does.

To my great surprise, whilst this is locked and clocked at 3.4Ghz boosting to 3.9Ghz mine seems to sit around 4.016Ghz on my Asus Z87 Pro motherboard (see image). Again I don't claim to understand this I'm merely reporting it for those that might. I'm sure someone will put me right!

The processor was a doddle to fit, drop it in, close the flap, push the cooler into place and use a flat blade screwdriver to lock the 4 'feet' of the cooler in place, done.

I am using the stock cooler in a Corsair 300R case and the fans rarely get beyond about 50% speed, albeit I appreciate I am not exactly taxing the system yet.

From the point of using my new computer, it's fantastic and in its main job as a digital darkroom it flies along with my 26,000 photo catalogue in LR5.2.

Down the line I might even buy a game just to see what it can do.

I was after an upgrade to my home VMware lab so got one of these seeing as the overclockable K series are missing VT-d capability.

Officially you're supposed to need a Q87 motherboard to fully support VT-d, but I've teamed this up with an ASRock H87 Pro4 (also from Amazon) and this is fully working in vSphere 5.1. Supposedly ASRock support VT-d on most of their boards unlike other vendors. You'll just need to add the network driver into the ESXi bootable disk so that it all works as things stand as these new boards feature the Intel I217-V which ESXi doesn't support out of the box.

It's an easy job to fix and takes literally a few minutes.

One thing to keep an eye out for is the fan. On the OEM cooler provided with this the wiring was wrapped too tightly around the fan which stopped it spinning so the first time you power up make sure to check that the fan is actually working. Otherwise you'll be cooking an expensive breakfast - it had fired into the BIOS and the CPU temp had hit 70c within seconds without the fan so make sure it's working!

Performance wise this thing flies with around a 9 second SuperPi score, and you get 4 cores and 8 logical threads thanks to HyperThreading.

If you don't want to overclock and want to run a fully functioning stable home VMware / Microsoft Hyper-V / Citrix Xen lab this is the chip for you! It's also quite handy at Hashcat when mixed with an AMD 7970 or two.

The system as a whole with an SSD can boot to the Windows 8 metro interface (or whatever they're calling it these days) around as quick as it takes my Dell screen to do the HDMI handshake - ie it's fast enough!

The Core i7 4770 works perfectly for those who don't care about or want to overclock and costs about 26 quid less, which I spent on a good after market quiet cooler, I upgraded mostly because I wanted sata 3 and usb 3 ports plus the CPU is about 65% faster and bit cooler than my older 2nd generation core i7 860 definitely not worth it for anyone with an Ivybridge or Sandybridge

Games just run fast, superior to anything else I've had before, Feeling like this CPU will last for at least another 2-3 years in the gaming industry

Was very easy to fit, even for me, I'm terrible clumsy with precise tasks. Good set of detailed instructions with it as well.

I bought this item for a new build. Not having bought a processor for maybe 10 years I was unclear on whether this item came with a fan. It does, though it’s rather flimsy looking. The fan has a small amount of goo on the back, aka thermal paste, but it’s only a tiny amount and if you plan to use this processor intensively you might want to buy some of you own paste, if you don’t go the whole way and buy a bigger cooler as well. I installed the processor with the stock fan for now. Installation was no different from my antique Pentium 905D, no problem – just align the notches on the chip with the socket and steady as you go. Clamping the fan in place was easy and didn’t require excessive force, but be careful with the power cables for the fan; they are clipped to the frame of the fan in such a way that they could easily foul the blades. With installation complete the fan ran so quietly I had to check it was spinning! I can’t hear it on tick-over at 36C even with the side panel off, but it gets louder when you load up the processor. As of July 2014 this seems a good price vs performance deal for a processor.

Almost nothing better on the market than this so far. Won't be outdated for a long, long time. Definitely recommend.

Great CPU, highly recommended! However, drop the stock cooler. I used the stock cooler for photo editing, and often CPU temperatures would peak at 90C! So purchased the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo a few months later. My CPU peak temperatures now rarely go beyond 60C in full load when processing raw photos. That's a 30C drop!
