The Core i5-3550P does just fine here but doesn't really stand out in any way.  The Core i5-3470 stays just a bit ahead in all of our Sandra tests and even the AMD Bulldozer-based FX-8150 takes advantage.

Good article. but I want to know if a processor with HD Graphics is better than one without. I'm a hardcore PC gamer.
How many cores is good for gaming.

If you are using a extra graphics cart then it makes no difference. Because when you play a game the pc will automatically use the most powerful gpu.

Multiplier 37 ? Is it possible ?

December 10, 2012 | 07:19 PM - Posted by DisasterArea (not verified)

What I take from this is that the only CPU improvement over my aginge i7-920 nahalem (which has HT) is that it will use a lot less power.

Seems no point to "upgrade" still from an "old" 920.

I done the same with a MSI Z77A-G41, just can't have a 37x multiplier in charge but 35x so i had 3675Mhz for nothing !

I have that mobo too, and I wanted this proc.... but it was out of stock so I had to go with a i5-3470. I was not able to go past x36, but hey I'm fine with 3.6 Ghz.

Will a GTX 670 graphic card run properly on this one? what about 2x670 SLI?

Will a Radeon 7850 or GeForce GTX 650 Ti work with it?

August 27, 2013 | 12:46 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

i have the i5-3350p paired with an evga gtx 660 sc and games run great at 1080p. crysis 3, tweaked with geforce experience, runs at 45-60 fps so a 650 ti should work just fine.

1st of all - those voltages are way to high

here's what I do. Lover the Pll to 1550 > then ur CPu will idle <0.9 and will reach tops full load at 1.03

I have z77 GD65

My clocks are stable even with block overclock 104. SO i get over 3.8 easily on air <60degrees with auto voltage <1.1

Turbo rocks. Why have the clocks high all the time.
I'm pretty sure there can be improvements and tweaks but nobody investigated (maintained high clocks and such)
