Great for overclocking and gaming
Runs hot, can barely manage turbo.
Although I got this right before the 4790K this will keep me going for years to go, especially with the next gen. improvements like DirectX 12 & Vulcun that distribute the work load more evenly.
Excellent processor and I got it at a great price. It’s unlocked, has hyper-threading, and even at stock speeds, is faster than Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge.
While I was planning this build out, I was debating between the 4670K and the 4770K. I ultimately chose the 4770K because of it having hyper-threading, and I have several applications that can take full advantage of it. It's a fast, efficient processor like I would expect from Intel.
what more can i say its perfect!!
The heat generated from this CPU is more than 3770k. But it performs well enough.
I spent a long time picking my CPU, when I finally decided on the 4770K it was because of its solid performance, low power draw and great comparisons to some more expensive chips. I must say I don't regret going with it, it has handled everything I have given it without a problem and under normal situations runs nice and cool.
Works for what its for. Overclocks well.
Best processor at the time of purchase for gaming not overly strong and certainly not weak, of course soon after I bought it the 4790k came out...
