Saw a 77w tdp on the box sticker
F.Y.I. People on the internet like/need pictures or this thread is irrelevant.
Sox on iPad it sucks can't even upload image
http://chinese.vr-zone.com/18367/intel-core-i7-3770k-77w-05272012/ what do u think?
I don't get it... Amazon has been selling 3770k for awhile now... old news is old...
My iPad sucks.. Or do u know? How to upload images frm iPad?
The tdp I think they are using a new thermal paste below the ihs
3770 is always 77w
So was I mistaken because during the launch of ib I saw some i7 with 95 tdp on the sticker..
mine says 95 watts
I'm guessing later i7 batch fixes heat problems?
Hmm, looks like 95w IVB exists after all. I always thought that SB has the 95w parts, while its corresponding ones is in 77w.
I'm still wondering why this is relevant? They sell these at Newegg afterall. Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turb...
Some people are looking for an answer as to why many CPUs are labelled as 95 W, while others are 77 W. The CPU I bought last weekend says 95 W.
Personally, i think it's just a typo, but with the "TIM" issues, I think people are over analyzing things looking for reasoning as to why Intel did this, that or the other thing.
I just wanted input on what I thought.. Because I was confused with the printed numbers, I heard it was originally95 w because of some oem regulations..or was it just a misprint on intel side or is it a later batch using a different thermal under the ihs at this point I guess it's irrelevant as I'll pass on ib and wait for haswell instead
Not over analyze as a consumer I want to make sure I buy something as its advertised .ive seen a lot of this stunts before or maybe I'm just paranoid...meh
Maybe the 95w ones are leakier chips. I know when I bought my Phenom 9750 years ago, I ended up getting a 125w (1.3v) version when I thought they were all 95w.
Well, my 95 W chip, at sock, pulls about 45 W. @ 4.4 GHz, it pulls 77 W. At 4.6 GHz, it pulls 102 W.
Really? My 2600K pulls 135w in IBT @ 4.5GHz/1.28v (using HWMonitor). I'll have to play with some lower frequencies and see if I can strike a balance between performance/power consumption.
2600K is not 3770K, and that's all I can say. Many are complaining about temps, and given those power consumption numbers, there is something to be said about that, but it's not an issue I care about.
Thanks for clearing that up.
so the 95w ones are cheaper or what?
No, its just the label on the box which is different.
Separate names with a comma.
