Is there a i5-3570K equivelant?

I'm starting a new build and I do not plan to overclock. Is there a cheaper CPU than the 3570K that performs similar just without the ability to be OC'd?

Thanks,

  1. well, there is the 3570. it is literally a 3570k that is locked.

    not sure if you needed intel
  3. If you are not going to overclock, get Intel Core i5-3350P. It is the best bet.
  4. if you wanted to save more money, this AMD option should work just fine too.

  5. I will be building an ITX, portable build. I've never gone AMD before, but the prices look nice. Are there suitable, stable ITX boards for AMD?
  6. The 3570 is $5 less than a 3570K.
    Not a good deal, considering that $5 more for a 3570K gets you 20% more compute power with a trivial 4.0 conservative oc.

    Or... a i5-4430 haswell @3.0 will come very close because of better efficiency per clock. @$190 less a 15% promo code it is worth looking at if you absolutely want to avoid overclocking:

  7. You actually have many options, and all of the suggestions above are good ones.

    If you want to save a little cash, look at AMD. Just be sure to get the newer Vishera cores. (4300, 6300, 8320, 8350) If you don't want to overclock, the 6350 is a good option since it has higher base clocks and will perform well without any overclocking. Couple these with a motherboard that has at least a 970 chipset, and go for a 990FX chipset if you can afford it. ASRock and Gigabyte have some very good options that are also affordable.

    Avoid the older Bulldozer cores. They won't perform as well. (4100, 6100, 8120, 8150)
  8. Its best for u to get 4670 that is 10% more power and olmst the same price of the 3570k
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($209.99 @ Amazon)
  9. Well, I'm seeing at least seven different answers.

    I'm not sure if all of you need more information to help me narrow things down.

    Like I said, I do not plan to OC, and a cheaper, similar performer is desired. I would go AMD, but I am completely new to that arena and would eventually need help swimming in that market.

    well i listed the best amd cpu that you would possibly be needing, Sn1992 listed the haswell 4670 which personally i would go with what he listed.

    Focus on this its the best cpu u shud buy

  12. If you do not plan on OC'ing and you want a CPU who's performance is close to the i5-3570k, then you are basically excluding all AMD CPUs.

    The obvious CPU to choose is the i5-3570. It is the locked version of the i5-3570k. The other option would be the i5-4670. There is also the i5-4670s which consumes less power than the standard i5-4670; 65w TDP vs. 84w TDP. The base clockspeed is 3.1GHz instead of 3.4GHz, but both CPUs can reach up to 3.8GHz with Turbo Boost.

    There is also the i5-4570 series. The max Turbo Boost speed on these CPU is 3.6GHz. There i5-4570 has a base speed of 3.2GHz and a 84w TDP. The i5-4570s has a base clockspeed of 2.9GHz and a 65w TDP. The i5-4570T also has a base clockspeed of 2.9GHz, but with a 35w TDP. However to achieve this low TDP the i5-4570T is only a dual core CPU with Hyper Threading.
