5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Works great and is fast. I can have multiple tabs in my browser open without any lag. Netflix is so fast the movies are better than the theatre. The stock heat sink works fine for me. I'm not doing any over clocking so no problem for me.

Cons: Can't be installed directly in my brain for transcendence.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Being as this is my first time building a computer, I did a lot of research before buying this and I must say this is great. For not being able to be overclocked the speed is still tremendous.

Cons: Not really a con but you will need an aftermarket heatsink/fan if you are planning on doing anything major like gaming. I did and managed to keep the cpu at 29°c which is great.

Other Thoughts: The only thing i wish is I wish i could have gotten the one to overclock on. But thats nothing.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy It!

Pros: I was torn between this and the 4790k, After doing a lot of research I decided the 4790k was even more overkill than this processor. And I was right! This processor paired with good memory and a nice gpu will handle anything you can throw at it. I've tried to stress this thing just to see if I can, I haven't found a way yet. One more thing to add since a lot of people don't talk about it. The stock cooler on this looks cheap, but does the job very well. It's near silent and keeps the cpu well within safe temps. I would buy this again without any second thought. I was a huge AMD fan, but I recommend spending the extra cash on this. You wont be disappointed!

Cons: Doesn't cook dinner.

5 out of 5 eggsMaybe too much power

Pros: I upgraded from an i3 that would use 70-80% of the card with me putting work on it to this i7 that's i barely see go past 10% usage. So yea it's a big upgrade. I wont need to be buying another cpu for a long while with this bad boy in my system

Cons: I bought this card hoping for it to be a nice upgrade from my i3 as a gaming build, and i believe i got too much power (that's one thing you didn't expect). if you're looking to buy a cpu for gaming an i5 should be more than enough but i7 is in a sense future proofing. Still a good cpu nonetheless

5 out of 5 eggsLove This Processor

Pros: Good price as I got one on sale here from newegg. Very fast. I'm not an overclocker so this was perfect. I didn't need the K model. 3.6GHz is wonderful for my needs. I've recently built two different systems and the system using this 4790 boots WAY faster than my system using the new i7 5820K. Below I'm going to put the specs on both builds.

Cons: Zero

Other Thoughts: System 1:

Intel I7 4790 Quad Core 3.6GHz per core
Gigabyte LGA1150 B85 G1 Sniper B6 - Totally wonderful board great BIOS
Corsair Dominator DDR3 Timing 8-8-8-24 1600Mhz 8GB Ram 4x2GB
OCZ Vertex 460A SSD Love this drive. It's fast. I like it better than the Samsung.

System 2:

Intel I7 5820K 6 core processer 3.3GHz per core
ASRock LGA2011 v3 X99X Killer Motherboard
G Skill Ripjaw DDR4 Timing 15-15-15-35 2400Mhz Ram 16GB Ram 4x4GB
Samsung Evo 840 SSD

The first system with the 4970 smokes the 5820K system with boot times. It's not even close. Don't get me wrong, they are both fast but the 4790 system is WAY faster and I'm not sure why. It has half the Ram but each core stock on the processor is faster. Maybe the OCZ SSD has something to do with it or maybe the Gigabyte motherboard. I don't know but all together it's one serious combination if your not planning on overclocking. I love everything about this 4790 system. I see no need to pay extra for the K version. Again, I don't overclock and this system is so fast without overclocking I don't see any need.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Fan Converted To Intel Fan By This CPU

Pros: 8 core, not 4 core 7.8 windows rating
went from amd fx 6350 to intel because of an epic fail on amds fx and apu prossecor line... long story short dont play mass effect on an AMD system. also frame rates in starcraft 2 went from 40 to 130.

Cons: I feel bad about giving my amd system to my cousin i found out that he plays mass effect on the pc as well as his ps3 'sigh'

Other Thoughts: EVGA 850w modualar PSU
antec full tower 1100?
ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA1150
