    Really? While I play games @ 4.7ghz 1.285v I usually sit between 37-50C or max 58-60C. Or up to 65-70C per core max in physics Vantage or 3dmark Skydiver physics (both the hottest tests so far), dunno nothing too hot to me @ aio H90 cooler.
    You must have had a really bad sample with high volts then, blame silicon lottery :p


    btw, even 2600K will get hot if you run Prime95 or Aida64 FPU..





    Also dunno why this debate, I just mentioned what happens in some scenarios when its faster per core performance matters and if you're not gpu bound SandyBridge vs Haswell (500-600mhz difference), sometimes more where those extra 5 vs 7way branch buffers or extra commands like gather and vectors count (Cinebench15 gpu test) and OT obviously made his mind up.

    Similar faster per core performance with i5 750 vs 2600k..

    I get about 54c in 3Dmark physics, I wouldn't stand for 70c. 4.5Ghz at 1.32v with those sort of temps is good, it strikes the right balance between performance and heat. Anything over 60c starts to bother me and I don't bother running prime because nothing will ever get the CPU that hot. I get a max temp of around 54c with the 2600K chewing on a HD encode in handbrake, gaming it is lower than that.

    The 4770K should have been godly and should be hitting 5Ghz with lower temps than the 2600K but it isn't doing nearly that well because Intel gimped the chip as has been detailed elsewhere in the thread.

    You didnt mention which 3dmark physics, newer 3dmark 2011 and 3dmark firestirke physics don't get so hot, only Skydiver part and Vantage and 3dmark06.

    Ps, Voltage obviously plays a big part too, Im bellow 60C in anything @ 4.5ghz with 1.175v too.. In gaming bellow 50C all the time, usually 35-45C.. Could be even cooler with better AIO kit.


    No, you really need a good sample to run 5ghz and stay bellow 1.3v (I've seen one 4770k doing 5ghz @ 1.18v), its them 3dgate voltage transistors that get hot after certain voltage, 1.3v+, same story by IvyBridge.

    Just like SB gets hotter after 1.4v, try higher OC then, not measly 4.5ghz, then defend it :p :)

    I jumped form Yorkfield to Haswell and for me it was 150% increase in everything, great upgrade, SB wasn't that much back then.. It was ok, but I wanted more and I wasn't in a rush.



    Now back on topic, his i5 750 is similar to my old Yorkfiled and if he gets it free sure wth not, its a great upgrade, I would change it too back then if I was offered one for free.

    4770k doing 5ghz at 1.18v and stable? I'd have to see it to believe it. If you went from a crusty old Core 2 CPU to the 4770K you're going to be happy. For those of us who like to keep more current it's been disappointment since Sandy Bridge.

    I had a qx9650 at 4ghz up until 2011 and could not wait to upgrade that. That was the end to the massive upgrade era.

    Ha. I remember when Crysis would say "runs great on Core 2 Extreme" then when people started to question the requirements for that game Warhead said "runs great on Core 2 Duo".

    Fun times.

    Yeah I went from a q6600 to a 4790k and never looked back. Plus I have a Sandy Bridge based Laptop with a quad core i7 that I am very happy with so far.

    I'm getting similar temperatures as you are only my voltage is substantially higher since I'm running 4.7Ghz 24/7. Voltage is a tad high at 1.435v, not alarmingly high but any lower results in instability...

    I've been runnin my 2500k at 1.44v 5Ghz for quite some time, no problems or any sign of degradation. Sandy is safe up to 1.45v if you keep temps under control and thats not really hard to do on these chips.

    I'm using the ultra low noise adapter with the D14, so the cooling is somewhat compromised maybe? I dunno, 4.5Ghz works just fine for me. If I started to get unhappy with the performance I'd perhaps OC more or upgrade to the new Intel chips coming out soonish.

    Going from a i5 750 quad core to this i7 4770k quad core was a very noticeable difference for me. I used that 750 for a long time, and I have a feeling I'll be using this 4770k for even longer. Things have really plateaued since SB, the only reason I feel you should get something newer than SB is if you are still running something older then SB right now. Since OP's getting it for free, it's a done deal.

    A free 2600K is better than any Haswell or Devil's Canyon processor....

    By "it's a done deal" I was implying that.

    That's good to hear. As you said, a decent cooler should keep temperatures under control meaning no degradation or abuse of the cpu...

    When gaming, I get mid 50's to mid 60's max...

    Only when torture testing the cpu using Intel Burn Test & Prime 95 can the processor reach early 70's. I love the 2600k period!
