Worthwhile upgrade if you are in the market

ET "Taylor Walker", Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: It's a pretty good CPU for the $. There isn't as much bang for the buck as in previous cycles (in fact, SSDs have been the most efficient upgrade route for some time now), but going from an i3 to an i7 is worth it in this specific case.

Turbo Boost is less as Cores increase

Francis N Henderson, Amazon
1 May 2015
  • Summary: I bought the 3.1 GHz i7-4770S to run 24/7 at 100% load on all 4 cores doing World Community Grid number crunching. Before purchasing, I had read several sources saying the Turbo Boost clock speed is 3.9 GHz. However, it turns out that is ONLY true when ONE core is turbo boosted.

Such... Speed...

Simon M., Newegg
12 July 2014
  • Summary: Intel rules!
  • Pros: This processor is amazingly good, and it's not even the real thing (K). I would not have minded paying the extra 30$ for the K one, but I never overclock my gear so I don't really need it. The S version is still a BOMB. I have absolutely no regret about buying this over a 4th gen i5.
  • Cons: None... yet.

10 years plan

masafumi akaneya, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I think this CPU is good. But I can clearly review 10 years later. Next 2-3 years we may see changes of Computer style. I'm not sure how much we stick with desktop PC at home. I think this CPU can accept future OS ten years later.

Fast, but runs hot

zwd, Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I am using it on full load, running 8 processes in parallel to take advantage of hyper-threading. I am not doing any over-clocking. With the stock cooler the temperatures on the CPU were reaching 80C. This temperature might be exceeding the tmax spec.

  • Summary: -Well integrated for my silent computer (ssd, fanless power supply, noctua case fans) -Replaced stock heatsink/fan with Cooler Master 212 EVO because I wanted a slient computer. Set fan to silent mode in BIOS and surprised how the fan is almost always completely stopped and cpu is running around 32...
  • Pros: Very fast, only 65 watts, impressed how runs suprisingly cool! I usually overclock but this cpu is fast enough so it's set to run stock.
  • Cons: Cheap and loud stock intel fan, even when set to silent mode in BIOS. But easily solved by changing to Cooler Master 212 EVO, so not really a con.
