Upgrade by WRIGGAZ
I've just upgraded to a I5-3570K(Quickcode 49755) paired with a ASUS P8Z77-M PRO Intel Z77(Quickcode 49262) from a AMD Phenom 2 955 Black Edition on a Sata II motherboard and all i can say is wow, big difference, system is much snappier all round,installations are quicker, gamings better, its cooler, quieter, and much much quicker.
Features on the Asus Z77 chipset are really good to, LUCID, INTEL RAPID START, Plenty of USB 3.0/Sata 3 ports and good support for PCIE Gen3 in single or Xfire/sli setups.
Just got to get my head round UEFI and the overclocking options for Turboboost etc, theres just so many options and just in case , i recommend a 3rd party CPU Cooler for any O'clocking, the stock coolers barely upto it really.
As ever gr8 pricing by Aria, i live local so walked straight in and was kitted out in less than 5 minutes, thanks guys.
Get an Ivybridge CPU, you wont regret it.
Sorry AMD, but its over.....Haha
Thanks again Aria, as ever you came up trumps. Cheers
Awsome! by Dave
Great CPU have one on a ASUS Z77 board with a be quiet! Shadow Rock Pro Quiet CPU Cooler on top. Auto overclocked to 4.2Ghz (thats a mild overclock, can be pushed higher) Temps of 19-21 idle 35-39 flat out.396 of 757 people rated this review as helpful
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?!
