5 out of 5 eggsi5 4690

Pros: Great, affordable processor for my first ever computer build. It was between this and the i7 4790 and for what I want to do (moderate gaming) I don't feel I am seeing any loss in performance going with the i5.

The base clock is advertised as 3.5 GHz but with the Turbo Boost technology and watching the clock speeds in Core Temp, this thing pretty much acts like a 3.9 GHz cpu whenever it needs to.

Cons: I don't like the included cooling solution. I cleaned the heatsink off and used Arctic Silver 5 per their instructions for this cpu family but Prime95 pushed temps to 170*F before I stopped the test. One of the push pins was also able to pop out of its motherboard mounting hole with the pin still locked and the risk of the heatsink separating from the cpu during operation because of that was reason enough to get an aftermarket cooler.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure Intel knows better than I do what is necessary cooling for their cpus but there's something to be said about taking into account the layperson's perception of what 'should be'. It seems to me that the cooler you can keep a cpu, the better, so when there are good aftermarket cooling options for ~$40 I don't see why Intel couldn't offer something better. Or just omit the cooler altogether and pass some savings onto the consumer.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: I got exactly what I paid for and it hasn't let me down. I was going to buy an after market cooler but even under a very heavy load it runs slightly cool within parameters.

Cons: No overclock, but for the price you can hardly complain

5 out of 5 eggsinsanely fast!

Pros: crazy fast, stays fairly cool with evo 212 heatsink, idles 30c under heavy gaming it gets as high as 54c I've never seen it get higher than that, and my gpu being underneath it is the number one thing that makes it even get that high.. perfect for a beastly budget build. paired with my SSD this boots windows 8.1 in 5 seconds. FIVE SECONDS from power button to browsing the web or playing a game, that's fast..

Cons: an i7 4790 would be a lot nicer and somewhat more future proof, kind of wish I would've opted for the i7 after getting a taste of these new intel cpus they're very impressive for the price. you cant overclock this one, but I don't see any reason to other than bragging rights

5 out of 5 eggsAs good as a "K"?

Pros: Runs any game I throw at it with no problem. I have a dual monitor setup as well as a HD TV. I can game, watch netflix, have multiple tabs in Chrome, use Mumble and have other background programs running without a hiccup. Stays cool at 42c under load on h100i.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Saved the extra $30 from getting the "K" part and have no regrets.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Incredible proc at a great price. Purchased to replace an i7-2600 and fits the bill very nicely. Used in a m-itx build and temps are good and stable even with the stock heatsink/fan although you can hear it humming along at anything but a light load. Never seen temps above 156F even on a stress test.

Cons: I haven't really seen any as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this as an afterthought when the i3 I purchased didn't quite fit the bill for the desktop/light gaming rig I built. Was amazed to see temps just slightly higher for the difference in thermal power between the two. If you aren't overclocking this is an exceptional chip.

5 out of 5 eggsit's magic

Pros: Solid cpu doing a theme build so I didn't go amd this time very snappy! I don't pick sides I always go with what will work for what it need as of posting amd doesn't have anything good right now not til 2016 so I went with this. Have not used a intel cpu since 2000 and I am not upset very smooth cpu and the hd 4600 gpu on the chip is good for a temporary gpu til you get a dedicated one! If your lucky you can over clock a bit I got a 3.8 on this cpu which was a bouns!

Cons: price is bad intel does not have to cost as much I don't think they need to be as cheap as amd but 25 to 40 bucks cheaper isn't gonna kill them the HS&F is ok but get a after market cooler so the Temps stay chilly

5 out of 5 eggsSnappy

Pros: Using the 4600 Graphics as well. Very fast and responsive. Overclocking not needed. Home unit. Runs cool (around 30c) even though in a small iTX case. Used stock cooler. Almost silent.

Cons: Never have liked the stock cooler set up, with the jive push pins, but hey. . . it works.

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously

Pros: Runs cool. No real need to OC - but you can!!! More efficient than Ivy. Better than ANYTHING AMD has. It's in the architecture! Do not fear the Haswell. It is better than Ivy. Also, you have more - and better - motherboard choices.

Cons: It's pricier than it needs to be.

Other Thoughts: Why hasn't AMD leap-frogged since 2009? I loved AMD for their ability to come back and beat Intel - but they haven't done so in 6 years. I miss those days. AMD please get it together - we need you! You CAN do it. If you don't, then Intel becomes the new Microsoft and monopolizes the market.
