Way back in May 2012, Circuit City had this processor at this low price just after introduction of the Ivy Bridge processor. We once again have a low price – not at Circuit City this time.
Tigerdirect has Intel Core i5-3570K ( Part Number BX806237i53570K) processor for a reasonable $209 if you use coupon code UZV66433.
Overclockers will find delight in this Ivy Bridge processor which has a base clock of 3.40 GHz.
It should not be hard for you to overclock this processor to over 4.0 GHz. Heat issue will prevent you to go much beyond 4 GHz ( Unless you have some really good cooling). The TDP rating of this processor stands at 77 Watts – something of similar processing power used to be over 95 Watts TDP couple of years ago.The processor comes with HD Graphics 4000, though gamers would still like to get a discrete graphics card.
