I ran the intel dagnostics software and found that my processor was faster than advertised only by a miniscule amount (3.22ghz). Not sure if that can be said for them all. Its a great processor it plays games easily and I don't have a graphics card.

works just fine, easy to place, provided with a cpu fan so don't bother buying expensive cpu coolers. Using basic student stuffs (word, tabs of internet, music, video) at the same time, really smooth havent played any games though but should run high end games for at least 3 more years without any problem.

I love it, love the service both the item and the company.

The i5 3470 is a great CPU and it's the CPU under the 3570 and 3570K, I've been using this for a week now and it handles anything I throw at it. It works great with a GTX 970 and 16GB DDR3 RAM!
My CPU came in a small package with no fan, heat sink or thermal paste. This was fine for me, but not everyone has a cooler lying around so check with your seller.

This is a really good processor. I use it in my system which I built for gaming purposes. It beats essentially every AMD processor when it comes to gaming. It scores a rating of 7.5 on the Windows Experience Index for me. I understand the WEI isn't the best of benchmarks but what else can I do. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and does so well. Great buy !

I am very happy with my purchase of this CPU.

With a Z75, Z77 or Z68 motherboard, you can overclock this chip by raising the Turbo Multipliers in BIOS. This may require a BIOS Update - It did on my Z68AP-D3 motherboard http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0054X4I4M/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_img_sol_1 - and a very tricky update at that (I had to make a bootable USB Drive running DOS and containing the BIOS update). It can be overclocked up to 4 brackets higher than the stock CPU turbo frequency.

This means, you can set the turbo at up to:
4GHz on 1 thread.
4GHz on 2 threads.
3.9GHz on 3 threads.
3.8GHz on 4 threads.
And it will dynamically switch between these frequencies depending on your CPU usage.
On my Z68 board, however it was limited to 3.7GHz regardless of the amount of threads - this is due to BIOS limitations on some Z68 boards.

It runs incredibly fast and doesn't use much power.
Combining it with the cheap Alpine 11 PLUS CPU cooler should enough to support these maximum turbo settings in most cases, while keeping operation quiet. All in all - a great CPU.

Beats any FX Chip EVEN the FX8350 and Overclocks to 4Ghz i5 3470

according to Toms-Hardware, and this has been proven by others, that

this (Intel i5 3470) will slaughter the 8 CORE FX-8350 in CPU intensive Sky-rim.

We all know with the right ASrock, Gigabyte, or Asus, even MSI, CAN CLOCK THIS TO 4GHZ easy.

By base clock, and multiplier, no need to add more voltage, but people have exceeded the 4Ghz.

Once again it seems Gigabyte Z77 boards are best for OCing this chip, (GA Z77X D3H) BEST VALUE.!

Or MSI Z77 GD65 MOTHERBOARD, goes well with it too @ just around £120 Amazon Bargain, the Gigabyte

(GA Z77X D3H) is £104.00 fab price again from Amazon, cheaper even that scan with free postage.

I have not Overclocked this cpu, because in my book with a Samsung Pro 840 SSD, its not needed.

its only necessary if you have a mechanical flywheel hard drive.

its now cheaper here the i5 3470 3.2Ghz with razor sharp IPC, 2x times more Throughput, than the AMD 8 core

AMD 8350 BUILT on the bulldozer Architecture. Sorry, before you say, no I'm not even an Intel fan-boy either.

I go where the best value for my dollar is folks, and its not with AMD. "AND an TECH", Plus "TomsHardware"

Plus "Tiny Tom logan", on YOUTUBE, all agree that this chip is now a complete bargain, the i5 3470. 3.2hz-3.6Ghz no OC.(Just Turbo).

When Amazon have-stock in it can be bought for £150. thanks Amazon for next day delivery before 12pm.!

As my title says, if u don't plan to overclock this is a great processor. Does the job well and does not bottleneck my GTX 670

Hasn't noticeably given me any more speed/power over an old Celeron dual core, but it's early days and I haven't put it under any real pressure. Probably need to fine tune it with respect to the system too.
