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.

I'm serious, this i5 and a fresh gigabyte motherboard made my computer go from slow to mega fast.

-Do not buy the i5 4570K unless you want to OC
-The stock fan and cooler is amazing
-Its really quiet
-The onboard graphics are pretty decent
-I can't honestly see any bad points unless you want to OC

PS: I am a previous AMD owner and the Intel switch is amazing, They are cooler and just out perform AMD even OC'd.

I chose the Haswell CPU mostly because of its improved power usage efficiency over Ivy Bridge. Well, plus the new motherboards' functions.
I didn't get the i5 4670K because of the price, though it does offer better performance and the ability to overclock.
This i5 4570 is paired with an ASUS h87 M-E motherboard and a 7850 GPU. The system should handle all games at max at 1080p resolution.

The chip produces so much less heat than my previous phenom 955 did and yet offers twice the performance.
On stock fan it idles ~ 30 *C (@800mhz), so far I havn't tested the chip with heavy gaming but I'm sure it will be just fine.
Note that the 4570 produces less heat than a K chip.. so far I don't see any reason to get a 3rd party cooler.

This CPU will not bottleneck any GPU on the market right now, good temps, low energy usage, good price. Very pleased!

This does me, but then my previous computer was driven by an Opteron 180. Yes, that old. This one is quieter than that (but so is our vacuum cleaner).

I bought the i5 4570 for a new PC I built recently. I wanted a fast cpu for multitasking and gaming, but didn't have the budget to stretch to an i7. I went for the new Haswell 4th gen Intel processors after reading raving reviews about them. Comparing the 4330, 4570 and 4670, I found the 4570 had the best price/performance ratio. I ruled out the 4670k since I am not interested in overclocking. In honesty, this cpu is super fast, and I feel as though I could stick an 'i7 inside' sticker on the front of my PC and people wouldn't be surprised thinking it was a £100 more expensive i7. Comparing it to my older 2nd gen i5-2400, the improvement in performance is obvious. I honestly thought that cpu was awesome, but this makes it seem slow in comparison. So far, any amount of applications running simultaneously that I have thrown at it, the i5 hasn't struggled at all. I'm running it with an NVidia gtx660 graphics card and they work perfectly together. The gpu can run any game at maximum settings, and the cpu makes loading screens go by in an instant. It certainly doesn't bottleneck the video card, and I wouldn't expect it to bottle any gpu on the market right now judging by how it has performed for me. Overall, considering that this processor is faster than some of the older i7 cpus, with improved graphics (haven't tested them) and an attractive price tag, you can't really be disappointed.

I have bought this CPU as I am not an overclocker and so far I am really impressed with it, I did not use my computer for video editing yet mostly for gaming and along with a R9 270X is absolutely fantastic. I got a CPU with integrated video as in case of upgrade / GPU problem I have backup (it has an Intel HD 4600 which isn't great for gaming but indeed the best integrated video GPU from Intel to date). The reason why I have chosen Intel is Power Consumption / Temperature against Performance and the whole thing works out really well.

A nice processor at a reasonable price. Works well with my Asus B85M-E Motherboard Socket 1150 motherboard, copuled with Kingston Technology KHX16C10B1B/8 HyperX Series 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM modules and Kingston Hyper X 120 Gb SSD.
Comes with cooling heat-sink and fan, with reasonable pictorial instructions on it and the CPU's installation.

I first built my home office PC about 15 years ago and have been replacing components as needed over the years. All that’s left of the original set-up is a vestigial floppy A drive – no practical use today but I’ve never had the heart to throw it away.

The last significant refit was in 2007 and, apart from a recent new hard drive and power supply, the PC has been super-reliable and done everything I needed. However, this year I decided to bite the bullet and jump several generations of hardware to the present day. So, with a budget of £300 for a new motherboard, CPU and 8GB of memory, I set about researching what was available.

The first decision was Intel v AMD. Previously I’d used AMD processors because they were powerful enough and cheaper, plus I liked to support AMD’s role as the only realistic competition to the mighty Intel. To my slight shame, I eventually selected an Intel Haswell CPU based on reading many reviews. The consensus appeared to be that the AMD processors, although cheaper, did not have the single-core performance of Intel equivalents – not all the tasks can spread their load across all the cores. The other reason for choosing Intel was the integrated graphics which meant I did not need to but a new graphics card (I’m not a gamer).

Having selected a CPU type, it came down to budget. Good quality memory was around £70 which left £230 for mboard and chip. My previous upgrade included the capability to overclock but in nearly seven years I’d never tried it so obviously didn’t need it. This meant I didn’t need a “K” processor or a Z87 chipset on the motherboard which together saved £50 or so. I also wanted at least 4 cores.
