Does what it's supposed to

WeFallUp, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Had no problem with this paired with my Gigabyte H87-D3H. Runs like a champ, I was getting 20-50 FPS medium settings on Smite prior to this upgrade, easily getting 120-130 now. Awesome processor. The only con as aforementioned is the pointless CPU cooler. Throw it in the garbage, do yourself the favor. Under stress I got it to 90C by accident (Not physically monitoring the temperature) and scared me a bit when I saw it. Didn't expect the temps to skyrocket so quickly.

  • Summary: It is my first Intel build. I've been building AMD builds for the past 10 years, but I decided to switch to Intel. AMD unfortunately have more drivers issues and I got sick of this. I am not disapointed after I made the switch. Everything works, including great Intel technologies such as RapidStart and QuickSync. Unfortunately, there is no hyperthreading on this CPU and it is a non-K version, which is not overclockable.
  • Pros: Good performances for the price, Intel technologies
  • Cons: No Hyperthreading, Fan is noisy past 1300rpm

  • Summary: I bought this thinking it had HT...sadly it does not. Which is fine. It runs great and all. No issues what-so-ever. Beware if you're looking for a HT i5.
  • Pros: Fast, runs fairly cool, good price
  • Cons: No HT, 4 cores only.

Great CPU - Mediocre Heat Sink mounting

Renae Hamstra, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: This arrived promptly as advertised. At this price the i5-4570 is excellent bang for the buck. The plastic mounts for the heat sink and fan are very balky to work with. They have a tendency to jam when installing or removing the heat sink.

Purvis Byunte, Amazon

  • Summary: performs better than anticipated. os = win7pro-64. samsung 840 pro 128gb. 16gb ddr3 1333mhz g skill ripjaws. evga geforce gtx-430 gpu. msi h87 atx mobo. boots up in about 12 seconds. shut down takes around 5 seconds. no complaints so far except maybe intel needs to stop fooling either themselves or their buyers into thinking the cpu fans that are packaged with the chips are up to the task.

Great Low Power Fast CPU

Martin A., Newegg
8 October 2013
  • Summary: With lack of competition, performance has hardly improved Sandy, I had an i5-2500k which when overclocked was as fast or faster. Power Consumption is not any better than Ivy Bridge under load, in fact in benchmarks it uses moree, not sure if due to the built in GPU which is a little faster. Idle consumption is only a little lower).
  • Pros: Extremely Fast Single Core Performance
  • Cons: Locked Multiplier (Marketing Bogus and why I removed a star)

Goes fast, hasn't exploded. That's a win.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: This processor works and hasn't had any problems. My computer is much faster, but I replaced the RAM, hard drive, motherboard, graphics card, as well as the processor so it's a computer-age Ship of Theseus. Does the same case and power supply make it the same computer? It occupies the same space and has the same peripherals. Is it still the Computer of Me?

FAST

  • Summary: Really fast processor. Coming from a Core2Duo on my laptop it's night and day. I just wish I could OC it. Although, I think it's plenty powerful as is.

  • Summary: Amazing CPU for really any needs and its cheap for its class. You can't overclock this sadly but it does have Turbo boost 2.0 which allows the CPU to increase its rates when it is needed.
  • Pros: - Fast, - Runs perfectly under load
  • Cons: - Gets hot at times
