Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

Pros: I overclocked it right out of the box to 4.5 using an ASRock Killer Fatality and Corsair H75 and temps are excellent. I"m not sure why people are complaining about the stock coolers as I really don't know why anyone would use a stock cooler on a K chip. I've also seen many reviews of people saying this doesn't overclock well due to high temps, but I'm pretty sure they either don't know what they are doing or aren't using appropriate cooling solutions. I had no trouble immediately getting 4.5 with 1.3v and it's paired with 8GB Ripjaws X 2400 memory and a GTX 770, so it's not like it's not cranking out some heat. I used the H75 in push/pull with the AF120 blue LED fans, and not only does it look great but I'm very happy with the temps and overclock. I feel like pushing it more, but I know how difficult it is when you start going over 4.5 and I'm happy with that.

The processor itself scores very well in passmark and 3dmark and will perform great as a high end gaming processor.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand why anyone would complain about the stock fan for this chip. Why get a K chip if you aren't planning on overclocking? If you are overclocking why would you even put the stock fan on?

Bottom line is that this is a great processor and I love the enhancements from the z87 chipset which is probably the biggest benefit over the 3570K as performance is very similar, but the z87 motherboards are more advanced and refined.

I really couldn't be happier and am very pleased with the thermals as I was starting to wonder if the complaints regarding the heat were legit. They weren't. Just get a decent cooler with a case with good airflow and you'll be fine as long as you have a reasonable understanding of overclocking.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 CW-9060015-WW Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120 MM
  • Verified Owner

Pros: H75 - Really happy with the initial performance of this cooler. I paired it with some Corsair AF120mm blue LED fans and it's pretty much inaudible. OCd a 4670K to 4.5 with 1.3v on asrock fatality killer mb and temps are 22 - 28 for all cores at idle. under load temps don't get above 75. Also, some really nice enhancements from Corsair in the setup. First, they finally provide you with enough long screws to support a push/pull. This annoyed me with the H90, H100i and H110. I'm glad they finally threw in the additional hardware. Also, the mounting bracket is pretty much preassembled and it's much easier to put together. Saves some steps and some frustration for sure.

Overall I'm really happy with it.

Cons: none - this is a great deal considering quality/price/performance

MSI Gaming N770 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: i love this card. it is my favorite graphics card to date. there just isn't a better combo of value, quality, performance, silence and driver support available. even under most intense loads i can barely hear it. scores over 12000 on 3dmark 720p. all games including bf3 on ultra without a hiccup. paired it with a 4770k and could not be happier. i've really been impressed with msi cards. i know evga is the bomb, but when these go on sale there is no question these are a better value. msi frequently offers large rebates and i've never had an issue with any of their cards. i also like that this card has 2 dual link dvi. that may seem obvious, but surprisingly a lot of cards only have one which is dumb especially if you want to run multiple high res displays and have to pay $50+ for a dl adapter.

Cons: i should have bought 2 when they were on sale. i do wish it had more memory. i know they have 4gb versions, but those are overpriced in my opinion as there just isn't enough of a performance gain, and when you're paying $400+ for a 770 it takes away from the real value in the card to begin with at the 300-330 range.

Other Thoughts: can't wait to get another one when it goes on sale so i can set up sli. two of these in sli would destroy a 780ti, but would cost 100 or more less. yes, it would ONLY have 2gb of vram vs 3, but since i haven't had a single issue with memory i don't think it really matters at least at 1080p.
