Once again Intel sets the pace in competition for performance and power efficiency with the 3rd Generation Intel Core processors, codenamed Ivy Bridge. Built on the market-leading previous generation Sandy Bridge architecture, the state-of-the-art Ivy Bridge not only continues the excellence in all aspects with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Smart Cache, but pushes the pace a step farther with groundbreaking 22nm 3D transistor technology, which delivers an unprecedented combination of performance and power efficiency, and a couple of key refinement. The built-in visual is another leap offering you enhanced media and graphics. The Ivy Bridge IGP also supports DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.1 to deliver incredibly detailed gaming and better heterogeneous computing performance.

The Intel Core i5-3570K packs four cores with Turbo Boost 2.0 technology to deliver incredible PC and visual experiences for all of your favorite activities—whether you’re creating, sharing, exploring, or gaming. Its unlocked multiplier allows you to freely adjust the frequency when used with compatible motherboard, pushing the performance to a new level and pumping the max out of your investment.

  • newegg Intel 22nm 3-D Transistor The 3rd Generation Intel Core processors employ the world's first 3-D transistor manufactured at 22nm. Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistor uses three gates wrapped around the silicon channel in a 3-D structure, enabling an unprecedented combination of performance and energy efficiency, and ensuring that the pace of technology advancement consumers expect can continue for years to come.
  • newegg Evolved Graphics Built-in visual features such as the Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 and Intel Clear Video HD Technology enable compelling user experiences across a wide range of intelligent systems. Whether your application involves medical imaging, video surveillance, or HD media playback, the 3rd generation Intel Core processors support smooth visuals, quick digital image downloads, high-density media processing, and synchronous video streams. The support for DirectX 11, OpenCL 1.1 and OpenGL 3.1 takes your gaming and computing experience to a brand new level.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 Designed to increase performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows the processor core to opportunistically and automatically run faster than its rated operating frequency/render clock if it is operating below power, temperature, and current limits. Furthermore, the processor can optimize both processor and Processor Graphics performance by managing power for the overall package, allowing an increase in the render core frequency and increased graphics performance for graphics intensive workloads.
  • newegg INTEL SMART CACHE This large last-level cache enables dynamic and efficient allocation of shared cache to all cores to match the needs of various applications for ultra-efficient data storage and manipulation.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX) Intel AVX is a new 256 bit instruction set extension to SSE and is designed for applications that are Floating Point (FP) intensive. Intel AVX improves performance due to wider vectors, new extensible syntax, and rich functionality. This results in better management of data and general purpose applications like image, audio/video processing, scientific simulations, financial analytics and 3D modeling and analysis.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

5 out of 5 eggsAll Round Speed

Pros: Good price, overclocking is easy and it is efficient while you are idling. I have it at 4.2 GHz and my power supply stays at 10%-20% while i'm idle. If I don't use my GPU, my PSU never activates its fan (40%)

Cons: Nothing really. Maybe list this under "Performance" not "Everyday computing" INTEL!!

Other Thoughts: If you want a Quad-Core, this is it.
I have a 6-Core also, and this is not any worse. I would have bought two 3570K's if I knew how great they were.
I am using a H100i to cool this, its a good combo.

5 out of 5 eggsKing of the 3rd Gen i5's

Pros: Been sitting @4.2ghz OC (ocassionally bumped up to 4.7ghz) for over a year with ZERO crashes.
Barely breaks 40c under load in my 78f apartment. (Cooler Master Seidon 240m)

Cons: Can't find any, and I've had mine for over a year.

Other Thoughts: This is the best price-to-power deal in the 3rd gen. If you're building an Ivy Bridge gaming rig on a budget, this is the CPU you're looking for.

1 out of 5 eggsNot working correctly

Pros: Fast loading

Cons: For some reason I get this popping cracking/static noise through in my audio when watching movies, youtube or any streaming videos and also playing games. It just starting this static sound behind the audio and it gets annoying.

Other Thoughts: I thought at first it was my Video card. Im using a MSI Radeon 7790 1gb gddr5 OC card, but I had that replaced TWICE by msi....but now Im starting to think otherwise. I went ahead and put my original I3 processor back in and it works just fine....Im guessing I got a fauilty i5 processor...any help would be appreciated.

5 out of 5 eggsI did my Homework

Pros: Quick, Fast, smooth, Quality - You get what you pay for with this chip.


Other Thoughts: I bought this after looking over several reviews and tech bits on chips over a year ago and now a year later, this chip still performs and grinds as it was built to do. If your looking for quality, performance and greatness, this is the one.

5 out of 5 eggsFPS Master

Pros: Perfect CPU for gaming. mines can do 4.5/4.6Ghz at 1.2v and never exceeds 56F (in-game) with an Enermax ETS-T40-BK air cooler. Is significantly faster than my OC'ed AMD 8 core CPU, especially when it comes to gaming. Very happy with this CPU, have purchased 5 already for various builds and not one issue to this date..

Cons: The fan, but that is the first thing you toss in the garbage upon opening the package.

Other Thoughts: Was going 1155 but that 4670K is just too hot of a CPU for the extra 2% gain, not worth it IMO.

Don't think twice, just buy it..

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast processor using Intel's latest architecture.

Cons: Runs hot, especially when overclocked. I've used two separate ones and both will clock to around 4.2Ghz on stock voltage at reasonable temps. Obviously, there's room for more for those who like to tweak or delid processors.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't necessarily upgrade from a good running Sandy or Ivy Bridge just yet.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't Go Wrong With This CPU

Pros: - Overclocks well
- High Performance
- Handles anything you throw at it\
- Great price to performance ratio

Cons: - Poor Thermal Interface Material
- Bad temperatures above 1.3v due to the TIM

Other Thoughts: Absolute powerhouse in the i5 bracket for Ivy Bridge. If you have a socket 1155 motherboard don't bother moving to Haswell, just get this; you won't regret it.

Overclocks great, but you will run into heat issues when going above 1.3v due to Intel's poor TIM unless you have custom watercooling or manually replace the TIM (which will void the warranty).

Besides that issue, it's still worthy of 5 stars.
