Customer Review

on 30 September 2012
This sort of a processor is a no-brainer for anyone building a powerful PC. The Ivy Bridge series has a much more powerful integrated GPU (probably not relevant), but also uses a tiny amount of power compared to the outgoing Sandy Bridge. The processor overclocks pretty well, anything in the region of 4.3Ghz offers no real downsides, but push further, mine reached 4.8Ghz at a push, and temperatures charge upwards very quickly, and it's probably not worth it.

Possibly the easiest processor decision you'll ever make.

Here is my build:

Asus P8Z77-M PRO
Intel i5-3570K
+Artic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro cooler
Palit GeForce GTX 670
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
Sandisk 120GB Extreme SSD
+500GB HDD
Corsair TX750M PSU
NZXT Phantom 410 Case
