Holy , this CPU is pure blessing. While it isn't cheap, it's probably the best i5 ever made. The 8th gen was too expensive, and needed a new mobo too.

Yes, but you would need a new MB as the socket for your CPU is 1155 and the 7600K is 1151.

My honest opinion, no. Not big enough upgrade to be really worth it.

If there both the same price go for this one for it's slightly higher clock speed and higher oc. However if you can get a used 6600k for a bit cheaper might as well go for that as the difference is minor around %5.

i5 4570 - bought mine for £145, 3 years ago
i5 7600k - seeing it for £240 online


7600k is 14% better according to game debate

smaller die size is what they are aiming for i guess, lack of competition ( untilnow maybe).

I believe the Kaby Lake CPUs will be released on January 5th not 30th. Plus, this was benchmarked and confirmed that it's around 9% faster than the 6600k so it's strange how the system reqs on the right are the same as the 6600k.
