5 out of 5 eggsFAST

Pros: It's an Intel, it's fast, and it runs cool. What's not to like. If you bought this chip you probably already know what you are doing so no need to bore folks with details. Will run games effortlessly for years to come I am sure.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Amazing as usual from Intel.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor and Performance

Pros: Picked one up for 249 locally and this processor is a beast. The only con is stock cooling is inadequate if you truly utilize the power of this chip. I might add that most applications have a hard time stressing this chip at all however for CPU intensive apps it will get hot. I am using an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Revision 2 with Arctic Silver thermal paste. With this tower cooler running an Intel Burn in test which the CPU up can reach upwards of 75C, Stock cooler is 20 degrees hotter which will cause throttling. The Intel burn in test will get the CPU hotter then a prime95 burn in so I like to use that to torture test my chips. I'm still giving 5 stars due to the power and performance of the chip. Turbo up to 4GHz gives you enough performance to tackle the most demanding applications and this chip should remain a contender for years. Boot time to Windows 7 with a Samsung Pro SSD is about 4 seconds to usable desktop. Handles streaming of steam games very well to other lower powered systems in the house. Processor is really overkill, I was looking at the i5 4690K however with the price being only 50$ more I wanted 8 threads to handle everything I can throw at it.

Cons: Stock Cooler should be replaced if you use demanding applications.

Other Thoughts: All in All this is a great CPU for a reasonable amount, this particular chip offers a good value for the performance offered when you get it on sale. If you want to upgrade an existing socket 1150 system this is a great way to give you tremendous multi threaded horsepower. If you are power hungry and want a little more horse power you can opt for the K version and overclock as needed however this chip truly is a beast and most will find that it offers tremendous performance.

5 out of 5 eggsLow Power Consumption

Pros: I coulda got an AMD for much cheaper with similar performance, BUT, I would have had to upgrade my power supply to a much larger unit.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As it stands, I am running a gaming rig with an nVidia 980Ti video card, and it hums along just fine with a 500W power supply.

I could not have done this if I went with the less-expensive AMD processor and AMD Devil13 video card.

AMD needs to up its game and get down to the same trace size on its CPU's and GPU's as intel and nVidia. As they sit, the guzzle power like a toaster, and they lost my sales directly because of this.

I like the idea of having a monster computer with a big power supply, but, I prefer having an efficient computer that is faster and doesn't act like a space heater.

I'm kind of an AMD fan, but the real world set in eventually, and you have to go with what works. I'm rooting for you, AMD, but I'm choosing Intel.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This thing is a beast! Bought it to replace my AMD CPU after it burned up, and I have been more than pleased with the performance.
I didn't buy the K edition since I have no intention to overclock.
I love this CPU and will not be needing an upgrade for several years.

Cons: Stock heat sink is garbage. Buy an after market one. (I purchased a Hyper 212 evo).

Apart from the heat sink no cons.

Other Thoughts: I used to use AMD products since the value was so much better, but this time I bit the bullet and spent extra, and the difference is night and day. I wish I would have switched to Intel sooner because i have never had a PC faster than this one now.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, it blew away my old Intel Core 2 Duo quad core processor, which I thought was fast until this came around.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The stock cooler sucks, I purchased a Corsair Hydro Series H50 and it hardly ever gets above 30C under load.

5 out of 5 eggsBrutal performance.. Blown away..!

Pros: I moved up the chain and replaced my video production machine from a Q9650 to this!! Wow! infinitely faster in every way. I used go make coffee every time I did a final render.. Now its a few minutes!! And there's less heat billowing out from under the desk!!

If you want to reduce frustration, do away with constant crashes.. and get the job done.. Worth the extra $$'s

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsThe right processor for my build

Pros: Plays well with others. No issues so far. Plenty fast. I wanted a computer for the whole family to use. I don't need to overclock, so I didn't need the 4790K. I paired this with 32 gigs of ram, 1TB Samsung EVO 850 and EVGA GTX 980 Hybrid (water cooled). Installed water cooling for the CPU. Temps are 25C at idle and 30C at tasks. I have this computer mounted on the wall 6ft off the floor as part of my media center. So temps are a concern, hence the water cooling.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I will update this review in a couple of months. But I don't expect any problems. I you don't want to overclock and want to stay with 1150 socket Z97 motherboard this is a great choice. I recommend this processer.

5 out of 5 eggsI wanted an I7

Pros: I wanted an I7 for HyperThreading and TurboBoost and I have it.

Running on the default cooler and I'm having average temp of 20-50 degrees depending on the load.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I didn't OC my processor.
