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 i7-3770K packs four cores with Hyper-Threading technology and Turbo Boost 2.0 technology to deliver top-of-the-line performance that makes a difference you can see and feel in HD or 3D, multitasking or multimedia. 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.

Overclockers Delight.

Pros: Update: 6 years in. 4.8 didn't hold up but 4.2 has been running for more than 5 years without so much as a hiccup. I've replaced Ram, Upgraded to a 1070 and game at 1080p with ridiculous FPS while encoding on slow for my stream.

Overclock stability at low voltage.
Generous l3 cache.
Matches more expensive i7 3930k with only a slight overclock. Surpasses it with a little tweaking.

Cons: Can't really think of one.

Other Thoughts: There are tons of articles on the net about how Ivy bridge doesn't over clock or doesn't stand up to sandy bridge in terms of this or compared to that. All of these assume you are buying some $30 cooler.

If you are spending $300+ on the CPU why would you use a $30 cooler. I am using the Noctua NH D14 currently at 1.3v and 4.8ghz stable. Never getting above 70C at full load.

As expected

Pros: Has worked solidly for about 6 years.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I just built a new PC, but I still have this processor in a spare now. I imagine it'll be useful for several more years.

Zero regrets buying a Core i7-3770k for a gaming rig. Worth every Penny

Pros: This was for my brothers gaming rig that I built him in September 2012. Right now this CPU does very well with the GTX 1070 he upgraded to . I knew that down the road, buying the Core i7 would pay off. After 5 years it's kinda hard to believe how the 3770k has retained it's value and how much the 3570k hasn't. Even for modern gaming this CPU does great if it's paired with the right graphics card.

If you're gaming at 4k you could easily overclock this thing to 4.2ghz then pair it with a GTX 1080ti and game on. At 4k even the best graphics cards are bottlenecked. The 3770k will meet your gaming needs if your FPS target is 60fps. The only time you should consider the Core i5-8600k or the Core i7-8700k is if you're going to use a 144hz monitor and you need that extra push from the CPU to boost FPS. You start to notice the benefits of having the fastest CPU when your FPS are at 90fps.

This is the best CPU you can buy for the Socket 1155 platform. However, if you have an h61, h67, b75, or any other non-Z or non-P67 motherboard then you can look at the Core i7-3770 which is cheaper than the K version.

Cons: The cheap TIM keeps this from being a great overclocker.

I own a 2600k that can easily hit 4.8ghz at 1.35v and it's stable as a rock. With the old Corsair H70 the temps never hit above 73c while running IBT. 71c-72c running Prime95.

This 3770k easily hit 4.6ghz at 1.31v (offset) but the old H80 it was paired with could not keep it from hitting 90c while running Prime95 Blend. The board I bought was an Asus z77 Sabertooth. Other than that one shot of overclocking to see how well the 3770k rates in the Silicon Lottery world, it's been running at stock speed since Sept of 2012.

I also have a Core i7-3770 on a P8P67 WS Revolution motherboard and the max the multiplier will go to is 43. I increased the Baseclock to 103 and I got the chip to 4.4ghz and it passes all stress tests. Keep in mind that some boards will flip out if you touch the Baseclock. If you are looking to upgrade and you aren't going to overclock very high then you can look at the straight i7-3770.

Other Thoughts: I have no regrets buying the Core i7 and pairing it with a GTX 670 over the Core i5 and a GTX 680. Back then games sometimes took a 1% hit by trying to use the Hyperthreading and it made zero sense to buy an i7 for a gaming rig.
Now you have games like Overwatch that greatly benefit from the H/T. Also, the 3570k is at the point where it is almost bare minimum for gaming. I know a couple people who have recently upgraded their 3570k to the 3770k because they need something that can take on more threads.

beast

Pros: 6 years later running at 4.6ghz since day one and it still runs solid as a rock. Went through a few generations of graphics cards and this thing just won’t slip. Currently on an ROG gtx1070 and 2560x1440 144hz monitor with no issues at all. Maybe I got lucky but this is the best chip I have ever run.

Cons: Doesn’t give me an excuse to build a new PC?

4 and a half years and still kicking

Pros: One of the best purchases I've made. This thing still handles gaming, VM's, and servers like a champ. Runs relatively cool and I've had no problems with it.

Cons: For a processors from 2012, none

Other Thoughts: If you still own this processor and want to upgrade, seriously think about if it's worth it.
