Interesting. Doesn't seem to be much better benchmark-wise, but at least the temperature problem appears to be fixed compared to Ivy Bridge. I'll be buying a chip and board to replace my home desktop (3770K + Z77 Extreme6), which will be used at work for distributed computing.
is that the same stock cooler as the 3770k -_-
Yeap. Only difference may be the fan. But still I think it was Delta like this one
I guess I had my hopes set too high as I am disappointed.
With my 4770K ES i could get the 4500Mhz at about 1.160-1.180V witch seems decent. Hope's not lost
Uh 1.5V for 5Ghz on Clarkdale seems a bit low
also doesn't it have an unlocked multiplier so you could've tested 37x120 to get near to 4.5Ghz
Actually if you get to 4.5-4.6ghz as seen in other reviews, then temperature is actually 5-10c worse than Ivy due to the integrated voltage regulator.
Yeap tried any way to get even 4.4 with less than 1.3V... no way :/
Any possible way,from 44x100 to 35x126.
You just got a shitty sample man... Like... A really shitty one
Difference Retail vs ES
notice alot of ES chips in reviews do much better than Retail samples so far......
The bad thing is that it is 100% retail :/
Typo on page 6. Good review so far.
And again on page 10.
The Ivy Bride?!
Seems like early retail's a roulette. People might wanna wait a bit for more stable samples.
So better than the 0.4% percent performance increase that was expected, but that doesn't do anything good for you if the overclock is worse...
I'm the only one here disappointed with the fact that Intel once again went with TIM instead of soldering?
The costs are actually that high to opt for some crappy thermal paste instead of solder?
Oh well, its luck of the draw
my 2500k was a bad clocker i remember everyone saying no no there awesome blah blah, but the chip did 4.3 100% stable and only did 4.4 99% stable.
Still chips not bad I guess just a IGP upgrade and some minor improvements. As usual intel wastes time on the IGP on a $300 chip where most systems will have a dedicated GPU anyway. These new intel IGPs need to be pushed into the I3 series, where they make far better bang for buck.
Oh well Its not all bad people will still get lucky time to time and get amazing Chips seen a couple that hit 4.8ghz so 4.2 to 4.8 is a 600mhz range thus far.
No, you're not. I was asking myself the same question.
And what's going on with that integrated voltage regulator????
Getting lucky with 4.6~4.7GHz? Are you serious, Intel?
Why is everyone is whining? Most of you already have Sandy or Ivy ... just pass it and wait for the real deal - 14nm Broadwell or just Skylake. Intel just can't offer interesting stuff every year now. Their CPUs are like NFS series by EA.
Yeap soldering the IHS would give better results for sure.
@Aquinus lol will correct them asap thanks
I dont worry, I will find a way to buy one which will be better ^^
For those that were waiting for Haswell to finally build their PC's, and want to have some fun with OC: Time to get a IVB or SB-E. I'm saving some more for a 3930K, and calling it a day.
I still love my 3820, that's for sure. No regrets here.
Hold little more. Ivy-E is coming later this later, so I think will be better buy.
Honestly, i could actually wait. But 3930K prices are going down around here and i want to put my hands on a GTX780 SLI as soon as possible.
We can only hope that i7-4930K will come with the same $600 tag 3930K did.
