So far this CPU has exceeded my expectations. Since this machine is primarily used for web surfing, gaming, and photo editing, this CPU simply runs circles around anything I throw at it. I've yet to see it struggle, even when doing my initial burn-in testing. Oh, and turbo boost is more like overclocking. I've seen this CPU peg itself at 3.8GHz (max turbo speed) for as long as I have whatever stressing it running.
One night I felt a little crazy and decided to simply bump up the turbo speeds, basically setting everything up 200MHz. I now see it frequently hit (and remain at) 4GHz and still as stable as can be. Temps are fine under load, I'm sure I could push it more if I felt so inclined! Now I do have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 on here. I wouldn't push this CPU beyond normal speeds without some kind of aftermarket cooler. Even without overclocking, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace that tiny cooler it comes with. It's barely adequate for stock speeds.
Besides being unlocked, the only feature the "K" processor has over the standard is better on-chip graphics. For me, I went straight for the locked unit as I didn't plan on overclocking and I knew I'd be using dedicated graphics. Of course shortly after getting the 3570, I find the 3570K is only $1 more than this processor. It seems the gap widened again, but still annoying. Never the less, unless you need onboard video or plan on some pretty substantial overclocking (more than simply changing the multiplier), this is plenty of power for you!
I do a lot of computer upgrades so I'm looking at new power supplies and RAM and video cards from upgrades all around my garage and none of it being used. So I figure if I've got to store them somewhere....So inspired by the NUC I get a Rosewill mini tower and a card reader with USB 3 ports, an Asus board, an Intel SSD and some accessories. Digging through my leftovers I found 16 GB of 1600 MHz ram and a 460 watt p/s and a GTX 650 card and with the i5 I've got a system worthy of today's standards.
It's no surprise that this little system is capable, after using the i3 NUC. After 25 years of building and lot's of hot rodding I think overclocking is in my past. Drives were always the problem and SSD's are the fix, so building a new 18 month old computer is a fine way to store old parts and with USB 3 externals I don't even need a second drive, although I should put one in, it is storage after all, I'll put in two. This processor will do some serious work quickly, unlike the i3, I can hardly notice the difference from the i7 4770. Researching the matter, the performance of this 3.4 GHz i5 didn't change much from the 2nd, 3rd to 4th generation, the new Haswell isn't 10% faster. With Windows power options set to High Performance it runs at 3.6 and boosts to almost 3.9GHz.Read more ›
Overall very good cpu
After researching my options for a couple weeks ($300 is a big deal to me), I came to the conclusion that this unit was the right price with the right amount of firepower. I almost stepped it up to an i7 because I do some video editing, but I can still render out a 1080p 15 minute clip with some post work in about 35-40 minutes in Premiere (16 gig ram).
For the money, I'm completely satisfied with it.
