Performs extremely well. Easily overclocked. Great for the price. This is my 5th computer that I have build now, started up with no problems at all

I understand that every processor is different but i actually can get 5.1GHZ under a 1.55 vcore i don't use that for everyday but i do use 4.9 for 24/7 use ; diamond in the rough maybe but one heck of a cpu

Works as it should.


The i5-3570k is still one of the best gaming procs out there according to the major benchmarking charts. The performance:price point is spectacular. Unless you're going up to an i7-4770k, then this proc will be a strong gaming hardware addition to your...

Fast gaming ; Stays cool /w stock ; Quiet stock cooling

Nothing. It's an i5 so it doesn't multi-thread as well as my AMD did but the gaming performance is far better

Awesome CPU


Excellent CPU, got for Christmas last year and haven't had problems. Replaced my old i3 2100 with this cpu and must say the i3 was a good CPU I just wanted a little extra power so I went with this quad core. If you want to game get this chip. Paired...

Meets and exceeds my expectations

Good but not perfect


It is a good cpu for a game rig, runs steady at 4.1 ghz, but challengng to get higher with no blue screens.

Run fast single thread

Well, it was a mistake to get it as i ended up getting i7-3770k, for games i5 stone was fine, but as i had to run VMs and multithread processes i5 is nowhere near to i7 8 cores. Also i7 overclocked effortlessly to 4.3ghz

Perfect for Gamers


Most games i play i literally have no issue playing! Frame rates are a steam 60fps or even higher.. If you wanting a gaming rig just to game on get this chip ! if you planning on streaming go with i7

Maybe i got a bad chip but mine runs hot, and certain programs make it run close to 90

works like it should


good processor at a good price point. i don't bother overclocking so i can't speak to that. i use the integrated video for my hackintosh htpc and it seems well suited for that

Great Processor


I'd buy this for someone or for myself if I needed to.

Temps are steady and hasn't gone past 60c when running at full throttle ; Fast speeds and reliable

A bit high on the cost but well worth it in the long run
