Or, y'know. An i3. (Dual-core with HT)An overclockable 2C2T CPU at a time where OSes running applications and games often have enough threads flying around in the background to give 2C4T and 4C4T CPUs somewhat of a workout... might be a little late.
If Intel had really wanted to make their 20th Anniversary edition Pentiums super-special by making them at least somewhat relevant in the enthusiast market like they were 15-20 years ago, they should have enabled HT and sold them in the $120-150 range.
Something this cheap is just begging for a delid and Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra if it uses the same design as the other Haswells. My 4770K dropped almost 20°C with CLU under the IHS.all i can say is the heat spread better be soldered on there good. Hopefully something reaching 5GHZ on air and under 80W thermal....?
