    Great review these are perfect for me. Sure it would be nice if it oced more but that's not important to me when you already get good speed.

    I do wish Intel would have soldered the IHS on. I think they are doing it because it would have made the CPU to cool and heatsink companys wouldn't want that... :rolleyes:

    The only thing lacking from the review for me is that i would like to see real power figures not just TDP. like how W1zzard does on the GPU reviews.

    Over the years I have always upgraded based on motherboard and i still do that, i buy a motherboard that i like which typically serve me longer than CPU.

    I don't care much about the CPU not overclocking as much as most people expected. I i always go for the non K or non X coz i normally don't care about OC as long as the CPU performs to what the specs say I'm fine, except when i had a 2500K not for OC but coz of the IGP.

    To me new chipset/motherboard carry more weight when i decide to upgrade and the CPU is a no brainier while upgrading to a new motherboard with new socket.

    I like to have most features running natively that's why i will go Haswell/8 Series coz i can get thunderbolt which i wanted so much, native USB 3.0 will be 8 ports thanks to Intel and native SATA 6.0 at list 6 ports.

    Intel Haswell (i7-4770 & DZ87KLT-75K) this will be more than enough for quite some time.

    $279 4770k
    $199 4670k
    $40 off mobo for select 1150 motherboards with Haswell CPU purchase.

    Microcenter.

    Tempting but I ain't biting until I see some 4.8ghz+ delidded results.

    For me the delidded results is where I am putting alot of my hopes in right now. :toast:


    I'm also looking at mother board selection.

    Why would you test high-end CPUs with such a relatively weak GPU?
    This makes the gaming benchmark utterly useless...

    Booted @4.5 GHz with 1.32v
    To make it stable I had to apply around 1.38V just my 2 cents

    Also cause many were worried about the temps I need to mention that 3570K was running with 1.275V when 3770K with 1.22V.

    Not really, I spend most of my time using either a 1156 i7 based computer, or 3770K. This is "mine", even if I don't use it as often. Its snappy enough for regular tasks, and a light game here and there.

    So the results really show cpu performance, not gpu performance.

    nice review. thanks
    i don't think it's worth 9.5 compared with previous intel gen (ivy).

    It was rated with 9.5 due to the performance increase and better/lower temperatures. Would get more if it could overclock higher. :)

    Don't stare at the score, most stuff score high on this site. It's the one flaw there is. :)

    Seems to be just a waste of space to put a IGP in these chips.


    Now in the motherboard bios you can disable the IGP on these right?

    Naah, some people need CPU speed more than GPU speed. IGP's have their place in the world, it's just that they moved from motherboards to CPU's.

    Yeap was thinking about this the last months. It may not be as heavy as other games but being that popular makes it a good addition IMO :)

    yes i sometimes do some self test on this game, many people love it and also they look for lowest priced for a pc can run it well, AMD APU's doing well and i see this CPU too can do the job.
    nice review mate really awesome , good work

    Im trying to debate if its worth me driving to chicago to Microcenter and getting an i7 4770k and a motherboard since its so much cheaper there than Newegg or holding on to my i5 2500k and current motherboard.

    If it is worth the upgrade, how much do you think i could sell my current board and CPU for? (i realize this may be out of place and apologizes if so)

    Pretty useful for programs which can take advantage of the parallel cores of the IGP, and watching 1440p videos.

    Nice review. I'm assuming that the test is done on a open bench...? Also, what cooler were you using? Seems strange that TTL got such high temps, with a H100i and the CPU-volt set at 1.2, he was hitting 85+ degrees, even though the ambient was only 20 degrees.
