5 out of 5 eggsHot In Here!!!

Pros: Low TDP that performs better with little OC ability. Runs quiet and packed with features. I spent a week plus researching Intel CPU's and motherboards prior to building a Desktop PC. This i7-4790s rocks. I didn't think the HTT would make much of a difference; however, out performed just as good as the other i7-4790 in it's class. Works well with Linux and Windows using DDR3-1600 RAM. The bench marks are pretty close being in the top tier. Overall performance is wonderful. Can't beat high end performance at low TDP for gaming or office. Matched with Intel H87 Express Chipset.

Cons: I've always purchased after market heatsink for any Intel CPU.

Other Thoughts: Getting a CPU heatsink that can handle 100w CPU or more. I use a 92mm dual fan CPU Cooler rated at 130w TDP which idle at 30 degrees and run up to 42 degrees. An incompatible heatsink would cause the system to cut off and on. Make sure the Heatsink is compatible with LGA-1150 socket.

5 out of 5 eggsintel i7-4790s processor

Pros: my favorite processor at this time.
i have been building my own pc desktop towers for year now.
by moores law i should probably get a new pc every 3 to 6 years
the i7-4790s intel processor is
an equivalent i7-3770s intel processor.
that is the reason i purchased it.
i love the i7-3770s processor.
i considered the latest genration processor but the one i looked at was unavailable at the time or needed to be bought from a japanese source and i discovered that the newest processor has been bastardized by intel for some reason to use the cache for graphics.
what a waste. i will go with intel's best recent past achievements and not purchase future newest generation focusing on graphics while sacrificing intel processing power.
so there you have it.
i purchased what i believed to be the best intel processor and perhaps ...

Cons: none that i know of

Other Thoughts: i love intel i am deeply sorry that intle is wasting processor power on graphics on its latest generation of processors

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Chip

Pros: Great chip in such a small TDP. 4/8 in just 65W but running at 4.00ghz nicely. Overclocks well.

Cons: Of course I would always want ita little cheaper, its on the pricy side, $25 less would be nice.

4 out of 5 eggsCPU Good, Fan Cheap

Pros: Low energy, low heat, yet fast CPU. The integrated video is enough for regular work, no need for dedicated video card (I have a separate gaming machine)

Cons: The CPU fan is really cheap. The low heat CPU doesn't need much in terms of cooling, but the fan isn't as quite as it should be, the blades a a bit exposed (careful with cables), and the construction feels very flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Be careful to not have any cables near the CPU fan, its own cable can get stuck in the blades.

2 out of 5 eggsDoA Shuttle DS87 CPU

Pros: Reviews indicate this is an excellent low voltage CPU for mini PCs, but I was unable to test or verify the claims since it arrived DoA from Newegg.

Cons: System did not POST, display graphics on HDMI and 2x DisplayPorts after getting the Shuttle PC RMA'd and changing out the RAM.

Well, I can't return the CPU back to Newegg but have to go through Intel's tedious warranty process. Definitely should have a policy change. Subtracting Eggs from here.

Other Thoughts: Should allow DoA products to be returned...

5 out of 5 eggsCore i7 4790S

Pros: Fantastic processor speed control based on usage. It clocks itself down to ~800 MHz when it is not busy, and when power is needed ramps up to ~3.2 GHz on all eight threads and ~3.6GHz on all four cores, or ~4.0 GHz on a single core/thread.

Cons: .

Other Thoughts: I left the cons blank beyond the requires period sign to submit the review. Putting any text in there would do the processor injustice, even if it was glowingly positive.

I cannot imagine why anyone could want more than this except for perhaps the tweakers who want a K-series processor to overclock or an LGA 2011 processor to feed their ego and brag to their friends.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a boss.

Pros: This thing is pure awesome. It seems to run a lot cooler then other i7s out there was checking out other reviews of 7's and they seem to run hot but this thing stays right around 19c - 40c has a ton of power can't wait to see what else's this thing can do.

Cons: Nadda

5 out of 5 eggsQuite quick

Pros: Low power consumption, 4 cores-8 threads, EFFICIENCY!

Cons: How about 45 watts at 4GHz unlocked. Hahaha

Other Thoughts: As much as I liked AMD, their TDP and performance was lacking. The AMD quads slugged out doing video conversions and photo edits. The video side was far more demanding but all those seconds/minutes waiting is lost work productivity.

This rig beats through 500 frame conversions in 7 minutes not a half hour like the AMD. F@H SMP on WU 6906 was stepping at 7.X minutes.

Stock cooler manages at 54-55C when F@H was breaking it in. Have a 212+ but when doing video and photo edits, it maintains 50-51C. The stock cooler is sufficient for my uses and is quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsSilly Fast

Pros: Blazing fast

Cons: with all the advancements in technology, they still cant come up with a design on the stock fan that prevents the wires from hitting the actual fan...

Other Thoughts: Paired with a Samsung SSD, windows 8.1 is instant with everything....built an awesome media center/storage/hyper-v server all in a small mini itx box...
