Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz Game Requirement Analysis

Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz is a high-end CPU based on the 22nm, Ivy Bridge architecture.


It offers 4 Physical Cores (8 Logical), initially clocked at 3.4GHz, which may go up to 3.9GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost and Virtualization are activated.


The processor integrates mildly powerful Graphics called Intel HD i7-3770 (variant of Intel HD Graphics 4000), with 16 Execution Units, initially clocked at 650MHz and that go up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 77W.


Compared to Core i7-2600 there's an overall 8% performance boost. Its performance is exceptionally good and enough for even the most demanding applications.

It only means the cpu will stay within factory OC settings (3900MHz for 1-2 cores, 3800MHz for 3 cores and 3700MHz for all 4 cores).Stock cooler is fine.

Bit too high for my taste. Mine idle on 40-44 depends on temp in the room but we must remember that i7's are hotter than i5's (I had 3570K @ stock speeds and it was around 3-5°C cooler).

I've checked your profile and notice your case only have space for 3 fans while the rear one and side one are factory mounted I would like to know do you have front fan installed? If not put it in ASAP (as inflow one) as it will make great difference to your thermals. Also do you use stock intel CPU fan or an aftermarket one?

Than only way to improve your thermals that I can think of would be putting new thermal paste (I like Gelid GC-Extreme) or installing better cpu cooler. Also if you do not overclock you can try undervolting your CPU via BIOS.

yea, tks for the advice, ill try to apply some new paste on the cpu, its cheaper that way. If that wont work ill think buying an aftermarket cooler. I wont touch voltages and other things in the bios cuz i really dont know anything about it and dont wanna mess up something.

I have i5-3570K but my mobo doesn't allow me to OC (only trough BCLK) is it worth to swap CPU to this one or is it better to swap mobo and OC the CPU I have now?

I did just that last year. 3770 is a freaking beast and with 8 cores it will be sufficient for at least another year or so. I'd recommend you try getting a cheap 3770 (non k sell for much less) off ebay and upgrade whenever necessary.

worth the upgrade - kinda. If you suffer from only having 4 threads, it's the perfect upgrade. That aside, the performance is not a huge gain.

Hey, you shouldn't be suffering much bottleneck on most games. The upgrade to an i7 would mostly improve multi-threaded applications. Since almost no game can use 8 threads, the difference is insignificant. If you want to upgrade, a look at a skylake i5 would probably be your best bet. However, its not really worth upgrading at this point if you ask me.

I don't think you really need an upgrade if you're using this computer for gaming. Since the the CPU is from the same generation, the performance difference per core will be minimal. Also, a 3rd gen core i5 won't be a bottleneck for you.

No, you can only change it with other intel iX 4xxx (4. gen, this one are unfortunally a 3. gen intel). You can change it to i7 CPUs like intel i7 4770(K) or i7 4790(k). ;)

I know that you can no longer overklock this cpu because they completely locket the multiplier, BUT was there an update to the motherboards BIOS that locked it or could you backroll the BIOS to an older version and then overcklock :)
