It is quite amazing that a OC'ed Haswell PC at 1.34v can be cooled by such a small case with no fans.
yeah it is pretty cool (see what i did there), though dumping the heat into the case like that would heat up everything attached to it.

Yeah Intel Tweeted that a 4970K hit 5.5 on "air". Turns out it was with a tray of LN2 sitting in front of the rad super cooling the air the rad was drawing thru it.

Still it was over all 4 cores so its still not too shabby and I think it bodes well for what these things are going to be able to do. Im going to wait for Tom and HardOCP's review before making the final decision but Im 90% sure this is the chip that makes me finally jump ship to Intel after about a decade of AMD fanboydom.

That would help HUGELY, After seeing benchmarks and reviews from non biased/non sponsored sources I think I'm going to stick with my 4770K, Just not worth the jump.

Lol, nice of Intel to exaggerate things and make them out to be more than they are

From what I have seen so far it looks like the DC chips are back to Sandy Bridge standards in terms of overclocking and temps. Haswell has around a 10% performance increase over Sandy Bridge though, plus the extra 100mhz base clock on the DC chips, so there should be a small bump in performance. Not much of one though, but being able to overclock without thermal throttling and much lower temps are the main things DC has to offer.

yeah that's pretty much DC in a nutshell. It won't be worth upgrading to from a current Haswell chip, especially if it clocks well.

People who are about to build new rigs and want to overclock should definitely go DC and low budget rigs should try out the new unlocked Pentium. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Pentium performs Overclocked!

I saw some info by an etailer ( I think it was overclockers) which claimed they got a few of them to do 4.5ghz and that the performance wasn't that far off an i5. I'm presuming they're talking out of their ass unless they just played games which only used a couple of cores.

-edit- it was scan and as usual, the graph should be taken with a pinch of salt.

OC3D need to get right on this and see how this thing performs. TOM Please sort this out!!!

Perhaps the unlocked AMD FM2 Athlons are not the best thing budget builds anymore? Perhaps the time is coming for New OC3D recommended builds?

I dunno if that'd be true. I've had an FM2 athlon (750k) and most games actually use 4 cores now so it did admirably with a 650ti. You can OC the balls off them as well. Its nice to see that ultra budget cpus are OC able now though tbh.
Decent budget cases and now decent budget cpus. The world of budget has not looked this bright in such a long time

From what I've seen nothing is different from a 4770K apart from the name.

PCPER did a review and benchmark and they could only get 4.50GHZ using 1.38v.

Now they did say they might of gotten a bad CPU, But come on, If it's an enhanced 4770K it's meant to be better out of the box overclocking wise not worse.

From everything I've seen so far it's a pointless release and a waste of resources.

Best bet is to wait for Broadwell even if your still on Sandybridge.

Thats why I think its wise to wait for some reviews before buying one because it could very well be a dud. I dont think it will be though. I dont think Intel would be dumb enough to tout the overclocking, built for enthusiast Devils Canyon chips only to have them perform no better than a 4770/4670 could. Im still betting that we're going to be impressed with them. Im not banking on 5.5 GHz overclocks but if I had to lay a bet, I would expect 4.9 to a cool 5.0 with standard (H100/D14) cooling when Tom's review comes out. If its 4.7 or below, then its a total waste and no better than the 4770/4670. If its a 5 GHz monster then Im almost certain Ill be investing in a new CPU/mobo. If its 4.6 or 4.7, Ill just buy a 8350 and wait til Haswell-E or something like that.
