Currently overclocked at 4.1GHz. Fast, stable, and cool, no complains here.

I'm pleased with this processor its fast and runs cool. No matter what I've thrown at it it seems to stay under 58°c.

Solid CPU! But I mean its Intel so hey. Comes with 40-PCIe lanes to which we used 36 so we are definitely cooking with gas while maximizing its potential for gaming. The highest speed per core for a 40-PCIe lane CPU we could muster up.

Amazing CPU for developers or enthusiasts that want to multitask like a boss!

Very pricey but 40 PCIe lanes (to fully utilize my SLI config), good overall performance and oc ability.

Was originally thinking about the 6700k, but after the price for the 6850k dropped to 180, it was a no brainer. CPU is working very well, current temps average 35C. Great Perfomance with my Godlike Motherboard

It's a monster. I don't know what else could be said. I haven't even put utilization outside of stress to 40%. Makes me think it's time to grab some new software ;)

The Intel Core i7-6850K is a great processor. I was able to overclock this to 4.7 GHz but didnt want to keep it so high so I dropped it down to 4.3 GHz with very low voltage. If anyone is looking for simply 6 cores, go for the 6800K, its nearly the same. In fact I dont believe the price difference is justified in the least bit, thus the one less star. Nonetheless, I got it for a great deal so if you can get it for cheaper, jump on it.

This monster hexacore CPU from intel readily handles any multi-core applications I throw at it, mostly ProTools and my wife's AutoDESK/CAD software. 40x lanes of PCI-e help the motherboard run two graphics cards at 16x/16x. A slightly boosted clock and extra lanes pushes this CPU a little over the little brother, 6800k.
