Summary: This processor is fast, but it is also HOT! Paired it with a Coolmaster Hyper 212 Evo with plenty of cooling and it still seems to run a little on the hotter side. But as far was work goes, this beast gets it done and gets it done fast!
Summary: upgrading from an Intel Core i5-3350, I can safely say that this cpu is a must have for any graphic designer and gamer! Large resolution images and videos process lightning fast on this thing, and gaming has seen a huge improvement as well! absolutely no problems here; great performance overall.
Great performance. Get thermal paste for installation.

Summary: A really big improvement on my dual core CPU. The built in graphics hardware is great. One tip: Get some thermal paste. You need fresh thermal paste to cool the chip with your existing processor fan. Thermal paste is not reusable.
Summary: This CPU is a powerhouse. I have been using this processor for a while, and I have never even come close to using its full potential. This handles multiple processes without flinching, and continues to impress me.
Summary: Wow! I just got a used i7 3770 (non -K) chip and it made my Windows experience silky smooth. I through a 5g SVP (smooth video project) with level 4 MadVR via MPC-HC and it hit 65% load at 64C temp on stock cooling. Dang!
