    The folks over at Coolaler and XFastest took one of the first public pictures of the retail packaging of Intel's Core i5 750 processor. The pictures reveal what is typically expected of an Intel retail package: a blue box with branding in the front, a sticker on the bottom-right corner that shows which model it is, windows that let you see the processor and its cooler. Inside, is the usual molded plastic cover that holds the processor and cooler, and some documentation.

    The cooler design hasn't changed at all from several previous generations. It consists of a copper base with pre-applied thermal compound. From the base, several forked aluminum fins project radially. Size-wise, the cooler is roughly the same size as that of Core 2 Duo E8000 series processors. One of the first socket LGA-1156 processors to hit the market, the Core i5 750, along with Core i7 860 and 870 (both LGA-1156 processors too), will launch in under 5 weeks from now. More details about the processor can be read in our older article here.

    I should have saved up for this instead of a new laptop....

    imho they should really trash that plastic packaging for the cooler and replace it with something like recycled cardboard.

    Are the i7/i5 coolers physically compatible?

    When i7 first came out, some people got way too excited and bought it but there's no real need for it atm, unless your PC is related to your work. i5 is the way to go for now (new C2D so to say)

    Blah intel needs to stop being cheap on these coolers. That cooler looks smaller than the one that came with the Conroe chips

    If the motherboards for the i5 aren't overpriced, this might be my upgrading platform.

    You'll get a decent-quality one for under $120, that's good enough for single graphics card.

    Hm... with i7 920's at $200 @ MC for another $100-ish I can get twice the cores.

    Do you know when the estimated release date is?

    It's not about need around here. It's about want (and scores and e-peen)

    Looks like a typical dual/quad core packaging.

    Wonder if they'll lose the copper core on the Duals? They learned from the Conroes, that overclocked too well on the stock cooler. Make 'em skimpy, save money and limit OC.

    That cooler should be an indication to those people that still don't believe that it's enough to cover just the cores, not the whole IHS.

    That cooler should be upgraded imo, AMD one looks more powerful, and as i understand, it is , heatpipes after all, lol.

    remember that i5 is a CPU lineup, while 775 is a socket - you need to be more clear when asking what you mean.

    well technically, you asked the performance difference between a CPU and a CPU socket.

    honestly, i cant even think of an awesome comeback/sarcastic comment to go with that.

    OK... is the i5 > than the Core2Duo and And quads like the Q6600

    Excuse me for not being so specific. But i think you know exactly what i meant.

    And i think you could maybe take the opportunity to teach someone and explain the difference besides just being rude about it.

    i3, i5, i7 and i9 are announced CPU lines across three sockets, 1155? 1156, and 1366

    From what little i know, the newer chips are more efficient (clock for clock) than their 775 counterparts - but since they've got everything up to six core CPU's with hyperthreading, 775 has no direct comparisons.

    No one has perfomance numbers for a socket thats not released yet - closest we have is running a socket 1366 i7, and disabling HT or some cores (or both) while in dual channel mode.
     
    andrewsmc says thanks.

    i5 and i7 should have been separate sockets, its not even funny any more at first when they described the new naming scheme i assumed that is what they where talking about.

    i7 coolers what do you mean i7 comes in 2 different sockets now so calling something an i7 cooler is redundant.
