This is not the Intel CPU you want

Richard H., Newegg
6 September 2014
  • Pros: Ignoring Intel's other CPUs, this is a nice CPU
  • Cons: This CPU has been replaced by the 4690K, which is faster, cheaper, and has more headroom to overclock. Don't get this unless it's on sale.

HOT

Tyler V., Newegg
30 August 2014
  • Summary: I understand that "K" models are geared towards aftermarket cooling systems and overclocking, but by no means should a chip not be able to handle its own rated speed.
  • Pros: Fast. Overclockable.
  • Cons: Gets really hot. Idle temps are completely fine, but load this sucker up and you'll be over 100C in less than 60 seconds. I find that completely unacceptable with stock clocks and stock heatsink.

Competition is catching up

Richard K., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Summary: This is definitely the high end of the i5s, so it's a nice CPU. I never overclock CPUs, so you'll have to go by other reviews for that. I wanted better processing power, and a CPU that would last me for several years before needing to be replaced.
  • Pros: It's not a bad CPU for an i5. Personally, I think the i7 is better able to handle the workloads I need. I thought my new build had the latter, but turned out to have the former. I got that replaced immediately with the i7-4770K.
  • Cons: Overpriced, even at the reduced email rate. A nearby national computer brick & mortar chain has it for $190, daily price. That means $20-40 cheaper, depending on the price Newegg is advertising at the moment. And you can walk out of the store with it in hand, or have them install it for you in a ...

  • Summary: Intel charges extra for the K unlocked processor. A processor needs a heat sink. The one Intel sells you cannot cool the processor even on turbo settings. I ran it at 4.2 with Prime 95 using 1.21V and hit 93C in about 45 sec. Why do they even bother with the stock cooler.
  • Pros: good processor at stock speed.
  • Cons: You cannot overclock this cpu with stock cooler.

It's more of a sidegrade over Ivy Bridge!

MOAR COARS, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: Before I start my review of the 4670K, I just want to say that I already own the 4770K and I already know that it's more of a sidegrade over Ivy Bridge. I have written a review of the 4770K on Amazon and I will put a link in the bottom of this review so you guys can read it if you are interested.

The instructions on how to fit/remove the stock cooler could ...

M. Wolfers, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: The instructions on how to fit/remove the stock cooler could be a little more detailed, if you don't already know how to do it, then independent research is a must. Other than that I have no complaints.

Хороший вариант

Plutogon, Onliner
6 November 2013
  • Summary: до этого стоял Athlon 6000+ по сравнению с ним 4670k самолёт!), оперативу держит больших частот чем заявлено производителем (1600) ставил 2600 и все отлично работало. Но есть и минус если разгонять а К версия для этого и идёт), то требуется серьёзное охлаждения.
  • Pros: Быстрый, экономичный
  • Cons: Охлаждение, цена
