Great cpu for a skylake build. Temperatures are below 60 on load with the stock cooler.

Turbo boost took it to 3.95ghz. I dont care for overclocking but with a Z motherboard this will go straight to 4.5ghz .Yes non K!

The CPU is great but the stock intel cooler it comes with is rubbish.

For people who don't plan to overclock, this is a huge handful of number crunching power.

Wonderful! No compatibility issues, comes with thermal paste and cooler, great pricing, and it's Intel!

from completed build I made this!

It's a CPU, and I think it does what it is meant to do. Not going to be overclocking, so happy with this model.

Great bang for buck performance. If you're not going to overclock this is all you need for gaming.

Excellent CPU! Wow, this thing has no issues with anything, on performance power plan in Windows, 3.8 to 3.9 GHz strong. Integrated graphics are pretty good as well, I can play Portal 2 on high settings at 1080p with 55-60 fps!
