Full Review - i7-3770K & i5-3570K

I assume someone isn't going to be getting Intel products for a while, and I could argue TweakTown breached an NDA.

Shanghai seems to be selling the i7-3770K -> http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=14810392935

Looking at other scores I've seen their i7-3930K must be toast and horribly degraded.

I cannot seem to connect to tweaktown...maybe its the school proxy. lol.
Anyway, this graph is quite irrelevant since...

I cannot seem to connect to tweaktown...maybe its the school proxy. lol.
Anyway, this graph is quite irrelevant since most games (including AvP) are heavily dependent on the GPU rather than the CPU thus you will not see much of an improvement.
Look very carefully...1 or 2 cores; it's almost deceitful :heink:

Notice the temps cores 0~3! Only core 2nd core shows high temps, so I can safely assume the Turbo is on the first two cores and not on the 3rd & 4th.

/edit - What caught my eye are the gaming frame rates, what up with that?!
YouTube that is if there's good stuff :)

I'm getting pretty picky about the Threads I care to reply and work on. If it's something interesting then sure, but most posts can be solved with a 15 second Google. I've posted just about every popular MOBO since LGA 1156/1366 and shown every which way to fix your RAM possible.

After the 50th repeat it's gets aggravating to help folks, I've seen me answer the SAME question just a couple Threads below the OP's frigging (duplicate) question.
