The Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge processor is one of Intel's best performers to date. In terms of real world performance this processor offers far more than most users are likely to ever need. Scoring 2012 points on the PassMark Single Thread benchmark, the 3570K is within a few percent of the fastest processors currently available and at 77 watts TDP it's no energy hog either. The server orientated GeekBench and PassMark scores of 13920 and 7144 put the 3570K at just over the 50% marker in terms of total processing capacity compared to the other processors in the group test. For server based workloads more performance is available from the Core i7 range of processors but for typical consumer use this processor is already far more powerful than it needs to be. [May '13 CPUPro]

Been a good buy, bought it as they were being superseded so it was pretty cheap, mild overclock at 4.1GHz for the last couple of years. runs stable and cool on air.

Approx 15% better performance than the i5-2500K and the same price. Supersedes the core i5-2500k.

Review  www.techradar.com/...

"The new Intel Core i5 3570K has everything that made its Core i5 2500K such a winning CPU. Per core performance is the best you can buy. It overclocks like there's no tomorrow and it's relatively affordable."

A great Ivy bridge review by toms hardware.

it low for 4k


Good

Despite having and using this CPU already in my own rig. I can feel the higher core temps than the i5-2500K thanks to the usage of TIM instead of solder for their IHS. Overall, this CPU is going strong and is still sufficient for gaming today (requires lowering settings for newer games though).

bought this in 2013 and it's still running new games on high/ultra at 1080. I wouldn't buy one new but i don't regret my purchase.
