So will the temps, if you plan to overclock it.

Some reviews..
Intel Core i7 3770k (LGA 1155) Ivy Bridge CPU Review :: TweakTown USA Edition

Intel Core i7-3770K Review: A Small Step Up From Sandy Bridge : Ivy Bridge: Was It Worth The Wait?

AnandTech - The Intel Ivy Bridge (Core i7 3770K) Review

Not sure if they are ES or Retail though?


This is what most of the reviews have said sofar.

(i know he rambles, but makes sense in some ways)

Coming from a Pentium, I don't think I'll need to overclock.

Too bad that the first i5 with HD 4000 has an unlocked multiplier, as that will be a waste. I may end up choosing a different processor (such as an i7 or holding off until the later i5), or maybe I'll get this and eventually get a better cooling system so I CAN overclock it.

Launched? Where into space? Is it on the interstate? Do the resellers have it? Maybe it is lost with USPS.

You would be upgrading from a Core i7-2600 to an Ivy Bridge simply for the lower power consumption? How much do you figure you can save over the course or a year?

According to this chart (Power Consumption And Efficiency : Intel Core i7-3770K Review: A Small Step Up For Ivy Bridge), the Ivy Bridge averages about 6 watts less than a Core i7-2700K

According to this writeup (Intel Ivy Bridge review) the power difference is less than 3 watts.

And finally, one more chart showing as much as 11% difference between the Ivy Bridge i7-3770K versus an i7-2600k under load. But that amounts to only 147 watts instead of 166. That's only 19 total watts.

So, at my house, where my elec runs around $0.12 per killowatt hour, 19 watts/1000 = 0.019 killowatts. Multiple 0.019 kilowatts by $0.12 per hour = $0.00228 per hour x 24 hours in a day = $0.05. So, at 5 cents per day, this would save $1.50 a month if you box was running 24x7 and under load the entire time.
