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
Plenty of grunt for transcoding and the extra cores to prevent stuttering if the machine is downloading, recording etc while you are trying to watch a movie and/or sream music. No overclock but can turbo boost to 3.9GHz if loaded. CPU also provides the graphics processing via the built-in GPU and at 1080p is entirely adequate.
Solid processor, all the power needed for gaming.
Multitasks like a beast, it is a great CPU for the money!
Since this not going to be for gaming or anything intensive I wanted something decent but nothing that ran too hot.
It's a locked i5-4690k, what else is there to say. Functions perfectly, and the stock heatsink is just fine.
Great price/performance gaming CPU. Intel turbo boosts up to 3.9GHz, so it's plenty speedy right out of the box. But if you're on the fence between this and the K version, just know that you can really only get a stable OC of 4.2GHz on the 4690K. That's the difference of 300MHz, so it would be the same as me getting this (the 4690) over the 4460. I chose the 4690 as a good middle ground between the 4460, and also not having to OC the K version. So i'd say it's perfect if you want a good affordable gaming CPU, without the bother of having to OC it.
You can't ask for anything better for this price, very balanced CPU runs everything just fine!
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 .
