    Excellent for Photoshop/Lightroom

    I built a desktop geared specifically for Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4.1 photo editing with this chip. I didn't go for the 3770K as I don't plan on overclocking (this is an editing box only, no games). I'm very happy with it's performance; ... Read more

    Good CPU

    Dead fan. BIOS gives CPU fan error, and the fan does quarter turns. After about 5 minutes of waiting it sometimes started to spin. Read more

    Quick Info


    • Limited Warranty period (parts): 3 years
    • Limited Warranty period (labor): 3 years

    With an entirely new 22nm process, the 3nd generation Intel Core i7-3770 Processor achieves dramatic performance gain at low operating voltage. The integrated graphics chip HD Graphics 4000 has been beefed up with more horsepower, the memory controller has been updated to officially support DDR3 1600 or 1333, and there's support for the new PCI Express 3.0 standard. With top-of-the-line speed complemented by Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, a rich set of features, and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, it delivers 3rd generation visibly smart performance at its best with the flexibility to set your system specs just the way you like.

    • newegg Intel Revolutionary 22nm transistors technology Transistors have now entered the third dimension. Intel brings 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate transistors (the core of microprocessors) to its third generation Core processors Ivy Bridge. Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistors are an important innovation needed to continue Moore’s law and deliver an unprecedented combination of performance and power efficiency. By forming conducting channels on three sides of a vertical fin structure, Tri-Gate transistors can have multiple fins connected together to increase total drive strength for higher performance. The new 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate transistors can deliver up to 37% performance increase at low voltage and more than 50% power reduction at low voltage.
    • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.
    • newegg Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Today's Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel HT Technology) delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
    • newegg Integrated Memory Controller Integrated memory controller enables two channels of DDR3 1333/1600 MHz memory, resulting in up to 25.6 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
    • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
    • newegg Built-in visuals The visual features built into the 3nd generation Intel Core processor family deliver everything you need to enjoy a stunning and seamless visual experience. Intel Quick Sync Video and newly-added Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) make media processing incredibly fast. New built-in Intel HD Graphics with DirectX 11 support delivers discrete 3D graphics performance without the needed cost and power of a discrete graphics card, and features Intel Clear Video Technology that enhances video playback, image quality, and color fidelity for a premium visual experience. What’s more, add another dimension to what you see on your PC with Intel InTRU 3D technology which supports stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4 and premium audio.

    5 out of 5 eggs This one will last for years to come!

    Pros: I had a great deal for this core i-7 so I went with this Ivy Bridge instead of the 4th gen Haswell because for one, i'm not going to be doing any overclocking, that's out of my ability at the moment, and it is also made on the same 22nm manufacturing process so the performance difference between a 3770 and a 4770 is the integrated graphics (which I do not use), Intel® TSX-NI (which helps is thread scaling is certain situations), and a couple of features like OS Guard and something with photos, so there was no point for me to spend more money on an ever so slightly (if that), processor when I could grab a nice deal on a top-end cpu!

    Cons: N/A

    Bottom Line: Since this is not an unlocked version the cpu, it will run at 3.9Ghz a lot of the time, and all of the time when playing games, so the stock cooler does one hell of a job on its own; my max temps never really reach above low-mid 50's and the cpu idles at about mid-low 30's

    5 out of 5 eggs 10/10 Would Buy Again

    Pros: Able to be automatically overclocked with Asus's AI Suite II.
    Stable at 4.1 GHz overclock with no aftermarket cooling. (Case being used is an Alpha-GT3.)

    Cons: N/A

    Bottom Line: This CPU has done everything I could ask and more! It is able to satisfy my needs as a casual PC user and also a PC gamer!

    5 out of 5 eggs Awesome! (2 Years)

    Pros: This processor has been an absolutely awesome piece of hardware. I used to render videos on another computer, but ever since I used this processor in this rig, it has cut that time into a third if not even smaller. Games run great, too. The stock cooler works just fine, all you have to do is just dust it every once in a while, though that's common practice.

    Cons: Not free.

    5 out of 5 eggs Amazing

    Pros: Although I made a huge jump in processor power when buying this I'm still amazed at just what this processor can do. Very happy with my buy and would recommend to anyone thinking about buying this processor to just go for it!

    Cons: Most expensive part of my new PC but definitely worth it!

    5 out of 5 eggs Great Processor

    Pros: Never fails to impress, a great processor for the money. While not the latest and greatest, it still works like a horse.

    Cons: Stock fan isn't the best (as with all others that come with intel processors,) would definitely recommend getting an aftermarket cooler.

    5 out of 5 eggs Happy customer

    Pros: Great CPU, this is exactly what I paid for, no less no more. I have had no issues in 3+ months of usage. Not much to say except it works well.

    Cons: Stock fan sucks, as usual. I would recommend buying a good fan if you were to use your computer for 8+ hours a day every day. You shouldn't worry though, the stock fan is still good at what it is supposed to do.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great cpu

    Pros: If you can, go for the K model for this and overclock it. Personally I don't need to because this is more then enough for me but for all the newbies out there wanting something powerful and efficient, either this or the K model of this is your answer.

    Cons: No cons, this thing is great
