Zusammenfassung: If you are a gamer like me then you have done your research.... Thats why you are here reading these reviews. Buy this processor, don't bother with haswell right now they do not benchmark as well they simply use less powere. Buy the i5 2500k or i5 2550k processor!!
Zusammenfassung: Runs at 35 degrees C under heavy load with a decent cooler (I'm using Prolimatech Lynx CPU KÃ¼hler). I have not tried over-clocking it yet, but I am extremely pleased with it's operating temperature and am well happy that I did not buy the newest generation chip. Soldering the case to the chip FTW!
Zusammenfassung: The IVY bridge Processor meets the demands for Windows 7 or Windows 8 with hardy a burp from interrupted work or multitasking operations. Highly recommend a Solid State Drive SATA3 (600gbs) to keep up with the i5's capabilities.
Zusammenfassung: Intel i5-2500K 'Hits it out of the park' with this unlocked micro-processor ('K' = unlocked). I am on a severe budget so I purchased the i5 instead of the i7 to get 'more bang for the buck.' Newer series of Intel processors are now available.
