Reviews

from completed build 5930K Build

Great processor and great overclocker. 4.5Ghz and XMP 2400Mhz DDR4 on 1.299908V.

Best CPU I have ever used, not the best at overclocking however.

Incredibly fast and reliable. Barely breaks a sweat when intentionally run multiple intense processing (i.e, converting videos).

After ruling out AMD it was between this and the 5920k; I wanted the extra lanes even though I will probably never use them. Also I'm not very familiar with OC so the clock was nice. Currently running at 3.75

from completed build Wolf Country 1.0

Excellent chip.

from completed build Dual 980 Ti Hybrid Extravagance

For me, the i7-5930k sits right at the sweet spot of Haswell-E processors - it's got the 40 PCI-E lanes for the SLI plus the higher base clock speed, with only the loss of the 2 cores from the much pricier 5960k. A great processor all around.

Great processor and great overclocker. 4.5Ghz and XMP 2400Mhz DDR4 on 1.299908V.

I knew I wanted a 6-Core i7, so it was between this and the 5820K. I had a little extra money to burn for once in my life, so I figured I'd get the added expand-ability of the extra lanes, and a little more speed. So far it's a total boss. Aftereffects compositions that used to take 45 minutes to render on my old Lynnfield i5 now finish in 3 minutes.

Good piece of hardware, can be better, oc part, but hey it's Sillicon Lottery here

This CPU has been amazing. It has laughed at everything I have thrown at it so far. While it is not overclocked yet, I do plan on doing so in the near future. Originally, was going to go with the 5820k, but at the price I got this for, I just could not pass it up.
