4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Overclocker

Pros: This is one of the best overclocking CPU's I've used. I was able to get stable performance at 5GHZ!

Cons: The price is similar to newer processors, but if you perhaps have an expensive 1155 motherboard, you may consider this as a cost effective solution.

Other Thoughts: A corsair h55 is able to keep my processor at 45c under maximum load while overclocked to 5 GHZ

5 out of 5 eggsIntel i7 3770K Ivy Bridge

Pros: With the Intel i7 3770K Ivy Bridge processor. I use Adobe Photoshop and convert videos or movies to a different format the i7 is a huge time saver; I also play games. I am very pleased to have finally upgraded my processor. :)

Cons: It is the last generation of processor so it should not cost as much as it is being sold for.

Other Thoughts: When playing games I am able to easily run the games at 4096 x 2160 I am able to get 80 fps plus with my current pc setup.
Thanking you for reading my review of the Intel i7 3770K Ivy Bridge processor. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performing processor

Pros: I bought this in 2012 right when it came out, and still use it in my rig. It shows great performance and I see no reason to upgrade for a while.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you have a socket LGA 1155 motherboard and looking for the best (excluding server CPUs), this is it. Though if you have a Sandy Bridge chipset motherboard, make sure the BIOS is updated and supports Ivy Bridge processors.

5 out of 5 eggsclueless

Pros: This thing has never given me any problems for almost two years. Even for someone who does not know what he is doing when it comes to over clocking. It is running @ 4.5 with temps around 87 c on the hottest core at 100% usage. The only setting I change is the multiplier to 43/44 and bam 1 extra ghz of performance. I don't mess with voltages or anything else and it is still working fine.

Cons: Wish it would not get so hot. 6 years ago core duo 2s were reaching 4.5ghz speeds around same temps I'm getting.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat cpu

Pros: speed up in a few games like rage for one. can run every game as long as you have decent gpu. easy install with right motherboard. noticed speed up in windows 7 64bit right away with this cpu from an i5 3570k.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I would get and h80i or better with this cpu for good temps. I get 20-30c idle and 63c under maximum load with intel burn test with the h80i.

always stress test new cpu to make sure its not faulty!

5 out of 5 eggs1 1/2 years later and going strong.

Pros: I usually build by PC's to last me about 5-6 years and this processor has exceeded my expectations and bet it will last me at least that long. I didn't have to de-lid or lap the thing and I get 4.6Ghz on an H100i @ 1.85v. Not too shabby. The new Haswell-E offerings don't look as appealing when you compare them to an overclocked 3770k :D

Cons: It's still expensive, but I bet you can find a used one for cheaper.

5 out of 5 eggsLongevity

Pros: I have had this CPU OC'd to 4.3 GHz for going on 2 years and running at 100% usage doing number crunching for that entire time. I do Distributive Computing and have had this system running wide open for the entire time without so much as a hiccup. The thing is feeding 2 AMD Radeon 6970's and going a mile a minute.

Cons: Not one thing great CPU

4 out of 5 eggsHyperthreading

Pros: Fast, ease of use and overclocking.Great for gaming and good for productivity.

Cons: The one i received only overclocked to 4.4ghz, I was hoping for at least 4.5 stable. On water-cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent upgrade processor

Pros: Want more power without spending a lot of money! Take your existing Sandy Bridge core i3 or core i5 setup, remove the processor. Update the bios on the existing LGA 1155 board (I learned how to do it from a youtube video), pop in this new processor and you will see an instant difference. I noticed instantly that downloads were faster, less buffering and smoother streaming and my favorite games, Flight Simulator X could have the frame rates raised.

Cons: I know many folks buy this processor to overclock it. I did that once it was installed. However, my favorite game would crash unexpectedly. After updating the drivers for the video card and re-installing the game (none of which solved the problem), in desperation I cancelled the overclocking. My game has performed smoothly ever since. So the con is, overclocking may cause more problems than it is worth.

Other Thoughts: Computer are expensive, just upgrade the processor with this sweet Ivy Bridge core i 7-3770k and save some money.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: It's a powerful quad-core CPU with multi-threading and an unlocked multiplier, the best you can get for the LGA-1155 socket. Works great on my Asus Z68 motherboard after a BIOS update. Incredibly fast in every task even at default clock speed with a reasonable TPD. And unlike the Sandy Bridge equivalents it uses PCI Express 3.0, so I won't have to upgrade my CPU for 5-6 years.

Cons: It doesn't cook breakfast for me.

Other Thoughts: I got this as an upgrade from my i5-2500. I didn't know as much as I do now about computers and I quickly regretted not getting the i5-2500K or i7-2600K along with my Z68 motherboard. So I saved money to get the best of the best: PCIe 3.0, hyper-threading and an unlocked multiplier seemed worth upgrading.

But the best wasn't written on the spec list. I heard about Ivy Bridge's poor overclocking performance, people with a similar setup as mine generally aren't able to go higher than 4.3-4.4 GHz. But I was able to reach 4.8 GHz! And it's 24h-Prime95 stable, I could probably push it even more but I don't want to needlessly stress such an incredible chip. I guess I won the silicon lottery and I'm really happy about it. Of course it won't apply to everyone, so I can't write that in the pro field. If you're an overclocking enthusiast you might want to look at the i7-4790K with improved thermal interface on the latest Z97 platform. But if you have a weaker i3 or i5 on a P68/Z68/Z75/Z77 motherboard and want to future-proof your system, get this while it's still available.
