Intel Corporation introduced the quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core processor family, delivering dramatic visual and performance computing gains for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users alike. Available now in powerful, high-end desktop, laptop and sleek all-in-one (AIO) designs, the new processors are the first chips in the world made using Intel’s 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-Gate transistor technology.

Supports virtualisation Supplied with Cooler Cooler has paste on the bottom so no application required No pins on the chip, so nothing to break when installing Supports hyper-threading so 8 virtual CPUs are shown to O/S
- Easy install - Runs very fast - Playing games, compiling code - never got it above 80%! - Paired with a H80i water cooler so no heat issues (not and endorsement of the H80i)
- I bought the 3770 as I needed all the functions to be enabled (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology) which are disabled on the 3770K , the downside is that the multiplier is locked which vastly reduces the ability to overclock. Would have bought the 3770K otherwise.
