Works great for me. I don't overclock. Still very speedy! About a $100 cheaper than the low-end I7, but with about 80% of the processing speed. CPUBenchmark shows the Kaby Lake I5 7600 about 10% faster than the Skylake 6600. Most of that is probably attributable to the higher speed (3.5 GHz v 3.3).
The stock fan is fine, but other fans appear to have more secure methods of mounting to the motherboard. You have to be careful to get the pins inserted and locked correctly. And since this was my first build in more than a decade, I didn't know that the stock cooler comes with wet thermal pasted pre-applied to the bottom of the heat sink. It's messy; be careful.
Does its job, marginally faster than its predecessor (6600). Personally, unless you are building a totally new system, I would suggest waiting for the next intel processors in the future.
Runs fast, cool, solid performance in games and the software I use. As far as I can tell it's not worth to get an unlocked chip with the budget I had. Main con for this CPU I think is that you're stuck with Windows 10 - it's nice, but it would have been good to have options.
Great for multitasking because it is a quad core and only 1-2 fps behind an i7. Also clocked at 4.1GHz after turbo boost it is not much slower than a 6600K while being much cooler
Have to say I'm quite pleased so far. After a few hours of running GTA V i noticed a max CPU temp of 71. Dunno if that is too high or not. I have set the Q-Fan for the CPU and case fans on Turbo. The silent/standard options seemed to conservative to my protective mama feelings over my new baby.
Excellent performance. Was tempted to wait for AMD Ryzen but given it's initial lack of I-GPU it would not have been suitable for HTPC (I didn't want to add a discrete GPU).
@ 3.5ghz 4C/4T this CPU handles multiple VPC's and services fine.
Would have been nice to have the i7 7700 but couldn't justify the extra $140 for minimal performance benefit.
The best CPU for the money. If you have or are looking at getting a RX 480 or a GTX 1060 this processor wont bottleneck it. This is the best processer for a gamer looking for a solid CPU
Working great and staying cool while doing so. Not much else to say here. Never planned on overclocking, so I saved a couple bucks on the locked version.
Only marginally more expensive than the 7500 so I jumped for it. I'm not really qualified to give it a technical review, but so far so good on all fronts. The stock cooler comes with thermal paste already on there!
Solid CPU but would be better with a better CPU fan.
