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.

Wrong product

Fabio, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchase this specific model of processor (i7-4770S) but I received another model instead (i5-4570S) I don't live in US and I just realized that when I was upgrading my PC. It's a bad thing that I received the wrong product, but at least Amazon gave me a refund of the difference between these two models. I have a friend in US, I will buy it again and delivery to him, when he get back to my country I'll get the processor.

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. The system shut down once with kernel panic and my guess this was because of the overheating. I had to buy another cpu cooler to make this work (cooler master T4). With the new cooler the temperatures reach 60C.

Like it

Christian B., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Summary: -Well integrated for my silent computer (ssd, fanless power supply, noctua case fans)
  • 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.

Balanced high performance and heat

Chebar C., Newegg
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Using this for a Linux-based multipurpose HTPC + light gaming + VM and remote desktop server. Watercooled for a totally silent system. Excellent performance.
  • Pros: This is the lowest-heat Haswell i7 available, still achieving excellent performance. Not overclocking, just want high power and multitasking.
  • Cons: Expensive option, while not the absolute fastest available.

Yup, it's a CPU... ;)

David Lamkins, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: Not much to say... Drop it in the socket and attach the cooler. As a first-time builder I thought that the instructions might have been a bit clearer regarding attachment of the cooler.

Great, fast, low-ish power.

Kendrick Vargas, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: Very fast CPU, love that it's low power. Since I need more words, I'd like to point out that the fit into the socket was perfect, so points for manufacturing tolerances to high standards :-)

True Workhorse

Eugene E Langdon II, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Been rock solid since I fired it up, noticeable speedup for single thread programs. Energy usage is amazing - total build uses 100W less that the previous. Passed my burn in test with flying colors (x264 10bit encode of 1080p content over the course of 5hrs) Full tilt - runs hot, but no hiccups with the stock fan cooling things, and promptly clocks down at idle.

Fills Low Power Niche

Joseph W., Newegg
3 September 2013
  • Summary: I'm generally disappointed that more products aren't available to fill my niche. Most CPU's seem to pair low power & low performance or high performance & high power.
  • Pros: I was looking the best performance I could get without using a high amount of power. (I'm concerned about the heat, not the power itself.) This filled my niche requirements nicely.
  • Cons: None.
