5.0 out of 5 stars Love the speed, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core Retail CPU (Socket 1150, 3.40GHz, 6MB, Haswell, 84W, Intel Graphics, BX80646I74770, 4th Generation Intel Core, Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) (Personal Computers)
What a fantastic CPU, it beats my old AMD FX 6300 in minimum framerate so a lot less jitters and general pc speed has seemingly increased too. I wont detail about max FPS since my display is mostly vsynced to 60 to avoid tearing. However keeping to that 60 sweet spot is a lot easier now.

First time I've seen a chip without guide PINS (mostly an AMD user up until now), so make sure you get the orientation right with the triangles before even taking it out of the box. Don't want to mess around holding it for too long, just get that bad boy right in there and clamp it down.

Idles at 18C and probably goes to 35 or so during heavy gaming, very cool with a Zalman tower fan. Threads are not really as important for gaming, except in a few cases, so this is an excellent alternative if you were looking at the 4770k and didn't want to max out your budget.

If you do a lot of 3d/graphics rendering, audio processing or you run a server or VM then get the 4770k, otherwise get this beast. You won't be disappointed.
