Intel Core i7-875K 2.93GHz Unlocked Quad-Core Processor Review

In a move that shocked many, Intel has buckled to the demands of mainstream consumers and has launched a couple unlocked processors for the LGA 1156 platform! The processors that are being announced today are the unlocked Intel Core i7-875K and Core i5-655K processors. Read on as we take the Core i7-875K processor for a test drive and overclock it up to 4.5GHz with just air cooling!

The Intel Core i7-875K is priced $238 under the Core i7-870 that is exactly the same processor, but locked. This is an amazing price difference as the Core i7-875K costs a whopping 41% less than the Core i7-870. It's not every day you see Intel do something like this and if you are wanting a Lynnfield processor the Core i7-875K processor is the obvious choice. You get an unlocked processor for the LGA 1156 platform and the price can't be beat if you want the fastest processor that money can buy for this platform.

It's because the majority of their customers don't buy the i7 in the first place.

So far, I've been slightly disappointed with the Core i7-875K after reading reviews from the usual hardware sites that I visit. I do like the price though.
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS
ASUS GTX 460 768MB @ 800/1950
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8GB @ DDR-1333
Corsair AX750
Crucial M4 128GB
Western Digital Black 1TB
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ EVO
BenQ E2420HD
