    Great comparison, I'm glad to see real summer load temperatures on these CPU-s. Too many reviewers test in over air conditioned space - when it's 40 celsius outside, no one has AC at 20 degrees.

    Uhmm... one question. On what sequence the BF3 test was on? I've tested many many CPUs and never seen such a huge difference between these two.

    Please dont feed the troll :)
    Already asked him politely(!!!) via pm, cause I wanted to know what was the problem but he never replied ;)

    Ran first "level" (train map) for 60 seconds (for each test). Yeah difference was more than expected to say the truth this is why I ran the game two more times but not huge difference from first tests.

    Hehe :D

    Yeah I always wondered why they ran so damn hot then I remembered these CPU's have GPU's built into em :roll:

    Yeah, I have tested 6x i7 4770K in total, these samples had really bad TIM (not that the retails should be that better though).
    The main problem is that the TIM is not that great in order to transfer the temperature fast enough, so cores are getting really hot.
    You also have to think that not only the GPU is build into the die but the VR (or better, part of them) as well. ;)

    Processors are ok, I have learnt to keep them as is, warranty will do the rest in case of any possible issue :D

    Maybe some people will prefer the best of both worlds. I chose to have a 3770K, i selected a good chip that does 4.5Ghz at a fairly low power consumption, re-lidded it after applying liquid pro and lemme tell ya son, life is beautiful

    Awesome review my friend! Temps are incredibly disappointing though, I expected better on water, obviously with the integrated stuff intel have thrown in its killing the thermals. Nice to see the difference between the 4 and 8 threads, I dont think I can see myself upgrading my processor in a long time.

    I'm half tempted to jump back on a 2700K.

    Remember the time Santa got sand in his shoe?

    WHat version of wPrime you took? I runned v 1.55 and v2.09, and I really don't get the same time on my 2700k @ 4.5ghz (RAM 1600mhz)

    V1.55: 175.25s
    V2.09: 192.527s

    I was under the impression that i7 performed the same as i5 for gaming.

    Interesting how the i7 does perform better with some titles.

    Does this also apply to ivy bridge or is it only haswell that has an improvement for i7 over i5?

    I am little confused with top temp graph , Are all the CPU done with the Prolimatech Megahalem ?
    Cause I can see the 4770k/4570k being warm but 3570k seems real hot , even stock speeds .
