After a two hour BF4 match, it only reached 67c. Max settings, 1080p, average 60-80 fps with dips in the 50s (i5 3570k @ 4.4)

Holy crap what an upgrade from my 560...

I know how you feel. Before I had my i3 and 7870, I was using a Pentium D and 5670. Beat Crysis at 15 FPS and played through Crysis 2 once.

The i3 was definitely the bigger jump of the two, though. Went from 15 FPS during cutscenes to 60 on high. And 45 or so in game. Then I got the 7870 2 months later and played through again, about the same FPS, but with the settings cranked up.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
