Also available is the Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K Unlocked Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1155 Processor, model no. BX80637I73770K, for $229.99. Again, choose in-store pickup to avoid the $5.99 shipping fee. (Micro Center charges the same price, again via pickup only.) That's another price low, this time by $84. (We saw an open-box unit for $205 shipped last fall.) This Ivy Bridge processor is compatible with Socket LGA 1155 motherboards and features Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz, 8MB of L3 cache, heatsink, fan, and supports up to 32GB of memory.
Fry's Electronics dropped its price on the Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Unlocked Quad-Core Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 Processor (pictured), model no. BX80637I53570K, to $189.99. Choose in-store pickup to avoid the $5.99 shipping fee. (Micro Center charges the same, but only has in-store pickup.) That's the lowest price we could find by $53, although we saw it for $190 shipped after rebate last winter. This LGA 1155 CPU features Turbo Boost to 3.8GHz, 6MB of L3 cache, a fan, and more.
