Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This processor is very fast, not just for the 3.5ghz speed but also it's architecture. Having upgraded from a first-generation i7-920 2.4ghz, as you would expect it was a world of difference. While it has a very slight edge over a 'regular' 4770 out of the box (albeit with higher power usage and temperature), it is much better suited to overclocking if that's your need.

Cons: As others have pointed out, this is not really a con of the processor but the heatsink+fan that comes with it - This thing runs quite hot even without overclock which is normal for the K itself, however you will _need_ a better cooler for the chip to be reliable. I'm using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and that does the trick perfectly.

Other Thoughts: By trade, I do 3D visualization and animation via 3ds-max & Vray both at work and home. Although I had a badly outdated processor on this machine before, my render times have been cut by more than half when rendering on CPU. It also devours heavy-running games like a boss.
