    This thing is a power house. I was easily able to OC this thing to 4.8GHz stable. I managed to make it to 5GHz but it was causing issues with the GTX 980, not sure why but I didn't mind backing down the clock a little bit. For the price range this is a fantastic CPU, unless you just have money coming out of your ears or you just have to have the new x99 chipset, grab this guy. Especially if you live near a MicroCenter. I picked this up for $279.

    A quad core processor with overclocking abilities was enough for me. I got this as part of a CPU + motherboard combo.

    Chose over the i5 just for the option and use of the threads when I start to animate and code farther along, and just to make sure I had the power.

    Beast. I am glad I chose this chip for my first build because it is fast...super fast. I have also overclocked this chip to 5000 mhz although I keep it at 4000 mhz because I do not believe ramping up the voltage gives enough performance for the risk. The single threaded performance is amazing and it destroys anything I have to throw at it.

    from completed build My take on the stormtrooper look

    I bought this for streaming and it has handled it like a champ. Streaming a CPU intensive game like CSGO is no easy task, and this bad boy manages to handle it well.

    from completed build Black Savings

    I lost the Lotto, I am stable at 4.6. BUT core 3 always runs 6-7 degrees colder then 1,2 and 4. So there must bean issue with the TIM under the heat spreader or something.

    Re-set cooler 3 times thats not the problem
