Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 3570K

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 6 MB vs None Compared to all cpus, 6 MB l3 cache is just OK
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.59 GHz vs 4.43 GHz Around 5% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.71 GHz vs 3.7 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
