3 out of 5 eggsGreat processer - Horrible Cooling fan

Pros: This CPU is fast and works like a champion with my Adobe illustrator & Photoshop items. So much faster than old PC with Intel Q6600 Quad core. (Purchased it in 2006).
The new set up works great!
MOBO - ASUS Z97-A
GPU - ASUS R9-280 3GB
PSU - Corsair AX760 Platinum
RAM - HyperX Fury 16gb DDR3 1866
SSD - HyperX 240gb (Primary)
HD - (2) WD Black 1tb
Cooler Master HAF 912 (SUCKS)

Cons: CPU Fan is LOUD and does not cool very well. Now I have to buy another fan.
I have the i7-4770K in my gaming system with stock fan and it is quiet and keeps it at appropriate temps when gaming. I planned to upgrade but did not need to.

Other Thoughts: Intel - Keep the fan and let the consumer purchase their own if you are going to provide junk with this CPU! If the K version has a better fan, I would have purchased it so I would not have to buy something else.
You fooled me after I had success with the i7-4770K stock fan.

5 out of 5 eggsVery capable, feature-rich processor

Pros: This is a very capable, feature-rich processor. It gets a lot of work done, while using very sophisticated power and thermal management behind the scenes.

The integrated graphics are actually quite good, though they won't satisfy a gamer.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is NOT an unlocked processor. If you want to dabble with overclockng, get the 'K' version.

The included HSF (heat sink fan) cooling solution is not as effective as most aftermarket upgrades.

I'm very satisfied with this processor, which I am using on an Asus Z97-A mobo, with a Deepcool Frostwin V2 cooler and Arctic MX-4 thermal paste installed in a Fractal Define R4 case.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing is a godsend. Upgrading from a Pentium 4 (extremely old) and an AMD C-60 laptop (great laptop but 1 GHz dual per core, became out of date by 2013) This processor has been an amazing upgrade, being the best mid range Intel precessing for gaming.

Cons: There are cons to this?

4 out of 5 eggsIntel CPU

Pros: Very updated CPU with a high GHz. Very usable, and nicely made.

Cons: The CPU Cooler that it comes with isn't very good at all. The blue package it comes in seems to hold the processor not very tightly.

Other Thoughts: Great processor, but the CPU Cooler is terrible.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good CPU, terrible fan.

Pros: An amazing CPU, combo'd this with MSi GTX 760 and it work wonders!

Cons: The only con, which is common amongst many other reviews, is this fan. It's cheap, flimsy and not ideal. Going to end up with liquid cooling anyway but wish they could up the quality on that fan so I wouldnt have to upgrade so soon.

Other Thoughts: Buy this, especially if you have budget to get another fan!

5 out of 5 eggsundoubtedly a superb upgrade

Pros: Coming from a Phenom x4 925 @ 2.8GHz this CPU is a lot more powerful. Frame rates in games have a much higher limit, and it holds higher frames easily. absolutely no stuttering. The Heatsink it comes with seems to be OK. I have a thermal take V6 CASE and it stays considerably cool. btw. the thermal paste is pre-installed neatly. Intel should consider making this more apparent in the manual even though it's obvious.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU For the money

Pros: This CPU was the best one that i have bought in the past 5 years, It is Fast and It usually Runs pretty low for me within the High 50's and Low 60's While maxing out games such as BF4 and Dayz. The CPU can handle a great deal Allows me to stream at 1080p With out an Issue and while streaming i barely break 20% CPU Power, Im not a big overclocker so the 4690 was the one i went with instead of a 4670k

Cons: I havent found any cons So far

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this CPU It has a great price tag for the performance that you will be getting.
