from completed build UNICRON

Really fast, low temps.

from completed build tggrng123

The performance out of the box is great! I've not had quicker rendering times than when I've got this CPU. With audio production, even the most CPU taxing VSTs hardly load it! I am disappointed, however, as I wasn't able to overclock at all with the one I received.

Super fast yet efficient processor, I'm glad I choose this over the AMD FX Series.

Very fast, runs a little hotter than my 4690K did though.

Definitely, I wanted an i7 for the workload but x99 platform, 6 to 8 core intel cpus are way out of budget.

from completed build First Gaming Build - $1700

What can you say? 8 threads at the ready. Fast and reliable.

from completed build First Custom Build - Update

Appreciate the hyper-threading capabilities - also lightning fast speeds so I haven't even bothered with an overclock. I know it may be overkill for gaming, but it gives me plenty of freedom to run multiple applications such as Skype, Chrome and Word while gaming which I certainly take advantage of.

Sweet!

First time in since the slot style cpu I have used INTEL, I always like overkill :P 4.4ghz no issues and its undervolted my my motherboard and stable

from completed build RedRanger - First Gaming PC

CPU has worked flawlessly since the first start automatically turbo boosting itself to 4.4ghz.
