Product Description

Product Description

Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.

For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.

The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.

There are two words in your vocabulary that should never meet—Game and Over. You love playing, and you love winning, so you demand unmatched performance, the ability to customise your rig, and features that put you in control of the action. With Intel technology, you step into a heart-pounding experience. Pick up your weapon, challenge your friends, and experience gaming at its best—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.

As a creative force and a professional, you must continually balance your vision with the deadlines of the real world. Intel technology helps you keep up with your creativity with unmatched and customisable performance, and feature’s that give you full control to optimise your workflow and maximise your productivity. So keep imagining, keep creating, and take your inspiration to the limit—because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you’ll do with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So, so fast! 1 Nov 2013
By Kenty7
Verified Purchase
I've recently built myself a PC, the first one I've done and decided if I was doing it, I was going the whole hog and getting the best bits I could.

This processor sits definitively in that category.

It's not cheap by any means, but I've installed it onto an MSI 787-GD65-Gaming mother board and it was easy to install, was a HUGE jump on my old Q 9550 quad core and contrary to a lot of reviews I read, doesn't run that hot at all. Mind I am running a H100i closed loop cooling system so that will help, but even over clocked at 4.2Ghz it's still only getting up to 42-42 Celsius under normal use. By normal I mean gaming!

Whilst there may be cheaper processors that will give similar performance, I wanted the best I could afford and I can tell you now this has not disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I missed out in the silicon lottery 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
It's a great cpu, I got it for a gaming build along with an MSI gaming motherboard, SSD, 2133 mhz ram and an EVGA 780 graphics card. I've ended up with a capable gaming rig. The only thing you need to be aware of is what there calling the silicon lottery, Basically by buying a K model you get an unlocked chip that you can overclock. They do not all overclock the same so it's the luck of the draw how well yours overclocks. However even without an overclock it's one of the quickest cpu's available and beats the best AMD can offer in the majority of tests even if the AMD is overclocked and this isn't. So even a small overclock puts it way ahead of the competition in 80% of the tests that are available for benchmarking. The internet and U-tube is full of channels where you can research a product like this and that's what I did and this is the chip to have without going into the extreme in name and price chips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I have recently installed this processor on my ASUS Z87-PRO. I have left in 'normal' mode for the time being to assess its performance and I am amazed how it handles all the tasks I set it. I shall over-clock it using the MOBO's built in suite as soon as I have completed the basic assessment

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooool... 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This chip in a Sabertooth Z87 is brilliant! Although seriously overpowered for gaming and even more so when overclocked to 4.5Gig, it will eat any task I give it, at any time, and beg for more. Running Minecraft and the terrible mess that is BF3, and running a security scan, whilst rendering video, it still only hits 45 C with a H100i cooler. I love it. :) Just need more screens and a couple of Graphics cards now......

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice CP U, highly recommend 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I got this CPU for my MSI Z87-G45 board. It comes delivered with cooling (retail package) but I fitted a Corsair H55 liquid cooler for 53 instead. I can't say I've pushed it very much so far so it's still sitting quietly and cool.

I do intend to game with it, but the main purpose of this CPU is to power heavy duty virtual machines, and proper xeon processors were still a bit out of my reach. If you're more into gaming, I would recommend you get the i5 instead and save yourself quite a bit of money. The only real advantage that the i7 has is a bit more multi-tasking.

This processor takes twice the load of my laptop (i7 x920) so I'm pretty impressed. The K models allow for overclocking so I'll definitely be good for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars USB 3.0 BUG in most haswell motherboards. 1 Aug 2013
Its a great processor but keep in mind that most current chipsets (Z87) in circulation have a bug that can prevent USB3 drives from working after waking up from sleep. You have to physically reconnect the drive or it just wont respond!

There's a way to find out which revision motherboard you have using "CPUz":
[...]

If you don't intend on using usb 3.0 storage devices in the near future you should be fine, I guess I'll wait a little while before the new C2 revision motherboards arrive (Due mid august).

Just thought you guys should know, Intel haven't been very transparent about this issue.
