First things first, this chip is fast. I upgraded from an AMD dual core 6000+ and the speed difference is unbelievable. This chip contains four cores, all of which are running at 3.30 ghz. I currently have mine overclocked to 4 ghz, and it runs fantastically. Overclocking was a breeze, it has the potential to go to around 5ghz if really pushed but I've chosen to leave it at 4ghz for stability. A good choice for PC enthusiasts who like messing around with all the settings. With Intels turbo boost technology when the computer isn't doing anything strenuous it automatically cuts the speed right back to save on energy, good for both the enviroment and ...

Sandy bridge came, sandy bridge saw and sandy bridge conquered. You have no idea what I'm talking about do you? It's the new (or somewhat new) Intel i5 2500k Quad Core, 3.3 GHz processor of course. Lost? Don't worry, all you need to know is that if you're looking for a computer, for gaming office use or basically anything under the sun then this thing is your man. It's your go to guy. If you see a premade pc your thinking of getting and you aren't sure whether or not this will be suitable for you - in 99% of cases it will be, and if it isn't you probably know what your looking for precisely. I have the processor ... Read the complete review

This is the lastest release from Intel called sandy bridge which introduces a smaller die size while beating the more expensive CPUs on the market. You can choose the I5 or I7 with the only difference being the I7 has hyperthreading although many benchmarks on the internet show hardly any improvements if any. Because of this i choose the I5 version 2500k and saved myself around £60-70 by not choosing I7. I dont run anything intensive and dont play games often so i choose the perfect one for my budget. I decided to go with k (unlocked) version as when the times comes i can push the CPU to get extra room instead of having to upgrade later on. Currently running ... Read the complete review

This K version of the processor is unlocked so that you can have fun overclocking the unit. A disadvantage however is that im told that intel can tell if you have overclocked this unit and despite being an overclocking editon this will void the warranty. The processor is very fast and stable, however installation is abit more difficult than the AMD equivalent due to the strange fan slots used for intel processors. You do not need a graphics card with this processor and i have tested this feature. As you would expect the processor will not work miracles however if your building a computer for work this would be idea and save you money on a gpu. This would also permit ...
