Reviews

from completed build Unfinished Build -- Now Complete

No cooler here so the actual cost of possession is quiet higher compared to let's say 4690k, good standard processor not yet overclocked.

from completed build First time gaming build

Not much to say about the CPU, as it doesn't affect gaming performance hugely, went with i5 over i7 for best value, and am very happy with the decision.

from completed build Student Skylake

Nice and fast - lovely all round - not too hot unlike some reviews have said

i5 6600k: The 6700k would have been better but 130 Swiss francs more (125 Us$) isn't worth it. Currently OC'd at 4.2

from completed build nothing but time.

absolutely no complaints, played some battlefield 4, ultra everything and this handled like a dream 38deg cels. according to MSI command center under full load.

from completed build Programmer Development Rig

Works wonderfully. Temperatures between 30 - 74° C.

from completed build Fenollium

Great CPU OCed to 4.5Ghz stable at 1.225V

from completed build Gaming and Home Office Computer

I was considering the i7 but decided to put the cost difference into my video card instead.

from completed build Something Special

Run really well in games and application I use.

However, with intel aiming the "K" series skylake cpu for overclockers I must say I am very disappointed. I'm only able to OC the cpu to a maximum of 4.2Ghz and I even need to give it 1.275V for it to become stable.

from completed build mattRlive's skylake build

One of the best CPU's I ever had I ccan overclock it to 4.5GHz and play all games on max setting with this
