About the Fastest thing on the planet for the price!
15 June 2013
Excerpt: This is a very nice and fast CPU... I see various reports on temperature, but mine runs cool at 4.5 GHz and rock solid doing BOINC tasks 24/7. Nothing but good things to say about this processor.
Excerpt: This was a great buy, I wasn't sure whether to purchase this or a 3770k, but I decided on this and I love it! Can reach 4.5 GHz easily, and has performed well in all the benchmarks i have tested
Excerpt: My current setup on this processor is pretty good. 4.4GHz on 1.250v. This is in a Asus P8Z77-V Pro motherboard, cooled by a Corsair H100i with 2xCorsair 120mm Quiet Edition fans [push]/[pull] with 2xNZXT 200mm red led fans. Very nice and easy to overclock, this CPU hasn't let me down thus far.
Excerpt: This is a great CPU for gaming. Switched from AMD and could already tell the difference. My chip was a bit subpar in the overclocking area though, i needed about 1.32v for a 4.4ghz overclock, but couldn't get there without heat being an issue.
