Difference between 3570 and 3570K?

i5 3570: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115233&Tpk=3570

i5 3570K: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504&Tpk=3570k


So I was looking at the difference between these two processors above, and I'm still a little confused on what the differences are.

They are the same price, but from what I've seen so far, the 3570k seems to do and have everything the 3570 does, and more. Is that correct?

The only difference I see is the integrated graphics, and that does not matter much to me as I am purchasing a graphics card and do not plan on using the processor's graphics.

Why would one purchase the 3570 instead of the 3570K? If somebody could please help me out with the differences, it'd be really helpful.


Thanks, Arron

  1. I hope you know that 3570k has unlocked multiplier which makes it is more overclockable than 3570.
  2. Are you wanting to overclock your chip at all? If so the 3570k has an unlocked multiplier,where as the 3570 does not, and the 3570k is a great chip for gaming =)
  3. "I hope you know that 3570k has unlocked multiplier which makes it is more overclockable than 3570."


    Well, thats my point, I was only wondering if there was any reason anybody would pay the same price for a 3570 if the 3570k does everything that CPU does and more.
  4. The 3570k is normally $230, its on sale right now thats why they are the same price. No reason to get the 3570 over the 3570k.
  5. Alright, thanks for the help guys.

    It's kind of stupid though. 3570 should be 5 to 10 dollar cheaper than K version.
  7. The reason for the Intel® Core™ i5-3570 would be selected over the Intel Core i5-3570K would most likely have to do with the VT-d. VT-d (Virtualization with Directed I/O) which allows the assignment hardware to a VM (i.e. assign a NIC port to a VM).
  8. Overclocking the 3570K is literally easy like 1, 2, 3. Type 42 in the multiplier box through bios, and bam 4.2ghz that can run cool on stock cooler.

    If you don't mind your CPU running in the 80's.
  10. if the price is same go for 3570k n if the price margin is considerable then 3570

    That's horrible advice!You should not overclock until you learn more.First of all you do not overclock on a stock cooler. :pfff:
