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

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.

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

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

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.

The CPU is amazing even without being overclocked

Currently clocked at 4.5Ghz at 1.31volts, my chip seems to be a little touchy, where putting it to 4.6Ghz seems to not fair so well. And putting it below 4.5Ghz at 1.31Volts, does the same.

I can't even go to 4.4Ghz on 1.31, It only works for 4.5Ghz. I don't know, don't ask. It's stable, and that works for me.
