Intel 4670K i5 Haswell Review & Overclocking

wPrime95

Our last batch of purely CPU based tests continue to demonstrate how well optimised the Hyper-Threading has become in recent years. Even a monster overclock isn't enough to overcome a lack of cores, even virtual ones.

x264 Benchmark 5.0

Video encoding is one of the most demanding things you can do with your computer. Surprisingly the overclocked i5-4670K is once again a match for a stock i7-4770K. Of course if all you're doing is encoding video then you'd be better off with Xeon's or even a LGA2011 setup, but it's nice to know that casual media sharers wont be left twiddling their thumbs with a Core i5-4670K.

Nice piece of desire but gamers would love to know a few more stuff.
First, are there any reason to replace i5 2500K with this new cpu, imo no way?
Second, who wants to use a 100 quid cooling with the 150 quid chip for gaming? Yeahh it's fun to be tested but hey, I could have unload 250 quid for the i7+Freezer etc. at first, imo?Quote

Take the rig away from a battle station
Good point Tom. Been there with a custom watercooling system plus GTs plus fan-controller. As to AC, they offered a number of great cooling stuff in the past ie. Accelero and Freezer series, not to mention the best-for-the-money part Quote
