    Now an oldie, but still a goodie. It doesn't matter what anyone says about Haswell-E when promoting Skylake; it does the job and it does it very well. This processor might soon be a dinosaur, but it'll always be king of the dinosaurs.

    Very good processor, although if you have a need for overclocking you can get the 4690K version for $20 dollars more. But for a simple enthusiast this processor works perfectly fine

    It's a locked i5-4690k, what else is there to say. Functions perfectly, and the stock heatsink is just fine.

    Since this not going to be for gaming or anything intensive I wanted something decent but nothing that ran too hot.

    This CPU is all I need for gaming. Furthermore it has some extra threads for multitasking and it does perfect so far. You can download, play the game and watch video at the same time without any stuttering. It is not expensive and not cheap. It has good Value for Money mark .

    Undervolted by 60mV for lower temps and quieter operation. It does CPU things. It does them well.
