Question  3570k upgrade by Danny

Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading from my Phenom II 965BE to this 3570k. My PSU is 550W with a 20+4 and a 4-pin connector. If I upgraded to one of the 4-pin Z77's with the 3570k would 550W be ok? (My GPU is an ATI 7850) Thank you very much, Dan.

Answer by thomasr on Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Yes this would be OK.

Thank you.

Question  Reinstall Windows 7? by Shaaz

My current system is a Gigabyte M68M-S2P motherboard running 2.50GHz AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core. It's quite old so it's due for a change. My question is, if I upgrade it to a ASUS P8Z77-V LX Intel Z77 Socket 1155 motherboard with this processor, firstly, will it still work? and will I have to reinstall windows 7?


Answer by stewartz on Saturday, June 1, 2013
This processor should work fine with the ASUS P8Z77-V LX motherboard. As for windows, it is recommended to do a fresh install due to possible driver conflicts.

Question  I5 by Alex mac

Would this i5 3750k be compatable with asrock z77 extreme 4 if so what kind of wattage would u recommend.

Answer by thomasr on Thursday, April 25, 2013

Yes this is compatible with that. Wattage depends on the rest of the setup. 450W will do if no GPU.

Thank you.

 Amazing by Simon

This processor is the best I have ever bought, replacing my AMD Phenom II 1100t x6, the 3570k knocks it out of the water on almost everything (as it should).

Overclocked to 4.6ghz very easily on a Z77 MSI MPower board at 1.3 core voltage.

Games are smoother paired with a HD 7950, booting in 10~ seconds with a Seagate Momentus XT 7200rpm 750GB SSHD.

Idle temps are around 25-30 degrees Celsius with aftermarket cooler, never tried the stock cooler so I wouldn't know if that's any good, and on prime95 I get 60-70C.

Upgrading from a 2500K? Keep it, upgrading from anything else? what are you waiting for?!
