Sommaire: This CPU is a dream come true. I was in dire need of an upgrade. I'd been living with an AMD duel-core processor for at least 2 years, and it couldn't handle what I needed anymore. After doing tons of research, visiting different websites about statistics and about AMD vs Intel, I'd decided to switch to Intel because it was just better for what I needed to use it for, compared to the AMD versions.
Conclusion Impresionante pero bastante acertada la decision de PCEL de traer la version K de este procesador, pues trae el multiplicador desbloqueado para que lo overclockeen como locos. He leido en reviews que se puede levantar a 4.3 GHz en 1 minuto, y con un buen cooler, 4.8 GHz es cuestion de niños. Pero no solo eso, sino que este procesador es uno de los mas eficientes, pues su consumo de energia es muy bajo (menos de 160w en 100% de carga..
Sommaire: Als langjähriger Kunde von AMD bin ich nun auf einen Intel-CPU umgestiegen. Und ich muss sagen dass ich diesen Umstieg auf keinen Fall bereut habe. Bei prozessorlastigen Programmen, insbesondere beim Gaming, entfaltet er seine ganze Kraft und liefert sehr gute Ergebnisse. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis stimmt und nebenbei ist er auch noch sehr sparsam. Eine klasse CPU!
Extrait 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.
Sommaire: Can't deny that this CPU is much faster at stock than my overclocked AMD Phenom II 940 OC'd to 3.4GHz. The only preventing me from giving it is the included HSF/cooler. Intel can afford to include a truly decent one with an unlocked CPU that is kicking the competitions top of the line desktop processors' arse. I hadn't planned on overclocking this immediately, but the temps are a little concerning while a full load at stock settings is forcing me to change HSF very soon.
Sommaire: The Intel i5 2500k really is an incredible CPU. For under £170 nothing else comes close. It's impressively power efficient and runs at a very reasonable temperature. Yet more importantly its performance is staggering- a genuine tour-de-force from Intel. To start it overclocks brilliantly- a stable 5 GHz is possible with a good air cooler, whilst 4.7 or 4.8 GHz is a perfectly achievable everyday overclock, which should avoid excessively high voltages.
Sommaire: Ordered late Monday, arrived Friday from Circuit City. My Amazon items arrived a day earlier on Thursday. As usual, Amazon did a great job combining orders and I paid maybe $30 shipping in total, for everything. I installed the following, and this part was compatible: ASUS P8Z68-V/Gen3 motherboard Intel Core i5-2500K CPU Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler (RR-212E-20PK-R1) Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 case Corsair 60GB Force Series 3 SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5 inch SSD Lite-On...
