Super CPU! 06/06/2014
Fantastic processor and blazing FAST FAST!! I've used the 2500K for about 3 years, and mainly for gaming, but the every day usages, and oh, boy video editing--major stump with that one. I anticipate much greater responses and workability with the hyperthreading. So, when I'm doing photo editing, or video editing, it was worth the extra $$$, and the WAIT! It was still worth the wait.
Price....Yikes, well to most people maybe that's not a biggie, but looking at the 2500k/3570k cpu prices, it was tempting--but still glad I invested the extra. Not really, it's very stable--and worth it
If you're going to game, not necessary most likely needed, if you're going to do photo/video editing, the hyperthreading is really worth spending the $100 that I would have spent over the 2500K/3570K CPU's.
