Summary: I have had a cpu over temperature error since the day I bought it. I have tried numerous thermal compounds, I've reseated it numerous times and still nothing. It idles at over 80 degrees Celsius and I am not overclocking or anything.
Excerpt: So all and all this is a great CPU. I don't game (although I might) but but I do produce music and upgraded from an AMD AM2 X2 2600.. BIG JUMP in performance wow. But I'm sure you've already realized that.
Summary: Came across this product via google shopper and the search phrase 3770k. First off this IS NOT a 3770k it is a locked down variant. Secondly the information listed is inaccurate. It its native state it is a x34 multiplier which equals 3.4Ghz not the x35 multiplier 3.5Ghz the listing claims.
