Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core i7 3770K


8.0
And because Ivy Bridge chips like the Core i7-3770K are intended for more middle-of-the-road users, they come loaded with integrated graphics systems that can drive up to three independent displays and support HDMI 1.4a and its associated high-quality audio, in addition to InTru 3D (for stereoscopic 3D) and HD video conferencing.

8.0
It's hard to imagine any desktop PC user ever needing more performance than the new Intel Core i7 3770K serves up.

9.4
Was just playing BF3 about 5 minutes ago, and the processor is now idling at 31-32C(according to PC Meter).

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

Benchmark Results: The Intel Core i7-3820 finished the POV-Ray benchmark in 205.77 seconds, but that wasn't enough as the Intel Core i7-3770K finished the benchmark in 192.85 seconds!
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2012)
Benchmark Results:The Intel Core i7-3770K scored 44.1 FPS at 1280x1024, which was roughly 45% faster than what the Intel Core i7-2700K could do on the same benchmark.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2012)
Benchmark results: Not a surprising result, overclocked the Intel Core i7 3770k had a physics score that is 23.5% faster than at default speeds.
by Legit Reviews (May, 2012)

Socket

Moving past the LGA1156 Lynnfield processors, Intel launched the LGA1155 H2 socket along with their new 'Sandy Bridge' processors.
by Legit Reviews (May, 2012)
The Ivy Bridge technology in this processor is great, however I found that when OC'ing it was extremely sensitive, and by that I mean, with 0.01v added to Vcore, temps went up experientially (this was at 1.25v @ 4.2ghz).
by Totally-Dubbed (Oct, 2012)
The first pass was more than 40 frames per second faster than running at default speeds, the second pass was nearly 11 frames per second faster or 26.9% faster.
by Legit Reviews (May, 2012)

by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2012)
If you're overclocking you will lose efficiency, but gain overall system performance.
by Legit Reviews (May, 2012)
If you aren't familiar with overclocking since the Intel 'Sandy Bridge' launch in January of 2011, it's been a trip.

Learn how to repair computers and open a small shop out of your home or make house calls... Then whenever you run across technologically illiterate rich people with malfunctioning computers simply add whatever component(s) you covet to their repair bill. Though rather immoral it's easier then shooting fish in a barrel with a drum fed AK47! Extremely stupid rich people are the root cause of the majority of the planets malignant issues! I say milk them dry like a Somalian woman breast feeding her entire AIDs riddled village throughout an 18 month famine every chance you get! Especially the Zionist/PNAC/NEOCON cabal scum and their dual agent Israeli/US minions that infest the majority of the highest offices in DC, network news and the global FIAT financial system that are behind 9/11 and every other false flag, act of manufactured terrorism and river of fear porn they endlessly flood us with! If you ever fix their stuff it's mandatory that you shift the decimal point to the right on their invoice! You call that the evil idiot scumbag tax! It's amazing even now with even the slowest hillbillies in the herd all know who's behind it all yet nobody does a single thing about it! It's a shame there are no honest men left in the military or various law enforcement agencies! Those elite scum are masters at keeping the idiot masses just comfortable enough where they can rob us blind, regularly sodomize their massive network of toddler sex slaves and remain in power without any of us self centered drones lifting a finger to stop them! If this crap ever went down back when Americans had balls all those House of Rothschild Zionist scum, their co-defendant gang banker family accomplices and their lying, monopolized global media traitors would ALL be making cameo appearances as the bloated corpses on the TV series, "Unsolved Mysteries"! I regularly fantasize about the day they pull that one false flag attack too many that triggers society to snap and every last one of the real terrorists start reaping what they have sewn in the most horrific ways unimaginable by mentally stable people! The icing on the cake is the fact that even poor people now carry phones capable of shooting pretty decent video so we will all be able to watch them squeal, gurgle and plead their last words on World Star and YouTube as they slip away from this world! I get half a chubby when I think about those evil souls paying for their crimes against humanity by the hands of the enraged masses! As we have witnessed all this peaceful protest crap and the laughable fake election theatrics every couple years has turned out to be as fruitful as falling in love with a filthy crack whore with stage 4 cancer! Until they cross the line in the sand and the REAL voting and justice starts hailing down upon them all from the rooftops all we can do is watch them all make fools of themselves as they try to pass off each ridiculous Taliban/Al-CIAda/Ebola/ISIL/ISIS story, staged tragedy or drills gone wild with a straight face while each new episode manages to defy physics and common sense exponentially more then the last! The more I think about the 300,000,000 members of the 99.5% just sit there getting robbed blind of their constitutional rights nearly as fast as their assets while 1000's of their children get abducted annually to satisfy the cabals Talmudic pedophilia needs while not doing a thing to put an end to it! We've become the laughing stock of the planet for allowing their poorly scripted and produced "events" to go unquestioned while all the well documented guilty are allowed to continue to live like kings and queens in Sodom and Gomorrah unpunished for their lies, murder, thievery and crimes against humanity! The scariest part is the majority of the population is so stupid they still watch the news and believe every word of it as if it was coming from God himself! That's actually the facet that allows me to accept and understand their plan to "depopulate" them! The gene pool is so polluted and degraded it does actually need a thorough filtering! I guess they didn't hire idiots to man their think tanks that came up with the 90% figure that needs to be culled from the herd. Actually, I think that figure is n a little generous, when I access the public i have trouble spotting 1 in 10 people that look like they are capable of contributing anything useful to humanity... It's far easier to spot the ones that should be euthanized on the spot! Ex:The 400 pound 30 something couples riding around the stores in their matching electric mobility carts wearing shirts with bibs composed of splattered on food from 5 or 6 days meals that remain hydrated and offensively aromatic from sweat, drool and continuous new spillage as they graze while filling their carts with high fructose drinks, cholesterol based greasy food stuffs and a case of diet soda each in hope to magically counteract their gluttony. Every last bite of their 15,000 calorie daily intake to be paid for by their magic card they just swipe and go home to gorge themselves while wasting bandwidth on the internet streaming the food network while uploading accounts of their gluttony and daily drudgery to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter not only oblivious to the fact that nobody cares, not even their partner, but that everyone that sees them would like to cut their mobility carts brake lines on the hills of San Fransisco or shove them into a pool with them plugged in with the lead cords double knotted around their necks for cheap insurance! And they were 2 of the BETTER out of the 10! LMAO All joking aside we must face the fact that we are just as guilty as the lying daddy government we empower to do all the wet work that allows us to enjoy sub $3/gal gasoline and 50MB/sec internet that allows us to sit comfortably in the air conditioning as we complain how bad things are in unison... None of this would still be possible if we didn't have a lying, heavily armed government to send ultra high tech hit squads around the globe to turn anyone or entire regions of people into pink mist if they even politely question us while we are "liberating" them from their natural resources! And god forbid anyone even whisper about selling their resources for anything other then the totally worthless FIAT Petrodollar! Saddam was going to start selling his oil for euros directly without Europe first having to convert them to dollars...Yeah, OK, we see how fast that got his entire country carpet bombed with depleted uranium all the way back to the stone age and him ending up dangling on the end of a rope! And the nerve of that Gaddafi trying to organize a GOLD backed Dinar currency... Crazy talk like that will get you disemboweled and your corpse dragged up and down the block you grew up on by CIA handlers and their $30 a day for hash/ heavily US armed Jihadists that would even do the CIAs wet work for nothing just so they can play with $70,000 stinger missiles all day like they are bottle rockets and all the light and medium weapons and ammo they can carry! Beats the hell out of just hacking each others arms off because your region only has machete and sword technology, after 5000 years that gets old! lol Oh well, I'm getting tired so I guess I'll wrap up my view from outside the box with the blinders off rant for the day... There's a lot of really important information sociopathically peppered within delivered to you unfiltered by way of this invasion I've made into your mind. Sorry if I shattered your perfect paradigm you act in daily by pointing out there's a category 5 shit storm brewing and really rich people are poisoning you and may even end up fisting your toddler some day. Hopefully you already knew most of this, if not take an hour and research some of the stuff you are still in the dark about. If nothing else at least think about what they are telling you on the news and ask yourself if it even makes sense... All that ISIS crap with the fake videos, come on! If you were running this successful terrorist group (or whatever the CIA claims this renamed fictitious group is) would you go around making videos with $80,000 high end HDTV video cameras and spend an additional $25,000 on the latest video production software complete with special effects pluggins to draw attention to yourself from the nation that spends more then the next top 25 military powers do combined annually? Certainly not something a real terrorist would even think about, Unless he is a real sicko and enjoys seeing all his friends and family get vaporized to pink mist riding the wind by hellfire missiles fired from the stratosphere by a kid you can't even fight back against because he is sitting in a trailer in Maryland getting ready to drive home to his house in the burbs for a barbeque as soon as he is done incinerating your family and village with his X-Box controller!
I have no money! I cannot afford this kind of CPU! Please help me people of the earth! Im begging!
