  • Summary: I owned an i5-2500k, but turned out to be defective. Needed a quick replacement and opted for this as it was cheaper than the 2500k with the sale. At stock, temps are definitely higher than previous gen chip. With the 2500k and cooler/push fan, temps at idle were 20-25 Celcius and 50-60 Celcius full load. The 3570k pushed it 5-10 degrees higher than what my i5 was doing. Even with the 3570k using lower voltage.
  • Pros: Latest Generation, Low power chip, Better performance
  • Cons: Generates more heat, Lower OC limits due to heat, Not worth the upgrade for current (previous gen) i5 'k' series users

  • Summary: Bought this to anchor my new build after upgrading from a Q9550-based system. I'm sure that in extreme gaming it stands up far better than the old Core2, but in everyday applications I havn't noticed the 'night and day' difference that so many reviewers seem to experience. Perhaps with more demanding applications or with more time spent tinkering and overclocking, but in the meantime...
  • Pros: -Great overclocking ability
  • Cons: -No hyperthreading

Seems OK.

  • Summary: Box arrived a little worse for wear which immediately raised some suspicions that the product had been tampered with i.e. was a refurb/2nd hand and not new. The CPU itself had some small scuff marks on it which also fed these suspicions. The product itself seems to work fine. I haven't got round to over-clocking it yet so I haven't been able to see its full potential.

  • Summary: J'ai préféré prendre une ancien version de i5K pour avoir la possibilité de monter haut en fréquence ,je suis pas dessus du résultat Sous Water Cooling j'approche les 4,9Ghz Mais Intel non prend quand même pour de GROS pigeons, alors que la version 4570K est dispo depuis 6Mois aucune baisse sur les anciennes versions ,d’où ma note

Musste ich leider zurückschicken

  • Summary: Ich sollte voranstellen, dass dieses Aufrüstkit speziell für meine Zwecke absolut unbrauchbar war und ich es deshalb zurückschicken musste - es mag daher für andere, deren Arbeit am PC auf anderen Schwerpunkten beruht, durchaus brauchbar sein.
  • Pros: schneller prozessor, sehr gute grafik, gute kühlung (gehäuse)
  • Cons: mangelhaftes board, zu viele lüftungs-gitter (pc nahezu offen)

Acceptabel

  • Summary: Helt ok som ersättare till Core i5 2500k, men inte så länge 2500k fortfarande går att få tag på. Ny obeprövad tillverkningsteknik, inte strömsnålare i vila och trots marginellt mindre strömföbrukning påtagligt högre temperaturer (10-30C varmare än motsvarande 2500k) vilket ger sämre överklockningspotential (om man inte kyler med flytande kväve, vilket möjliggör hisnande klockfrekvenser).
