5 out of 5 eggs4790k nice chip

Pros: out of the box stock cooler over clocked to 4.5ghz automatically on z97pro, ran warm but not bad. upgraded to H80i closed loop water and run 4.7ghz 1 core, 4.6ghz 4 core highest temp 92c with prime 95 otherwise 24c idle and about 50 encoding video.

Cons: Not relay a Intel issue but the z97 pro puts out more voltage than the core needs creating unnecessary heat.

Other Thoughts: no reason not to run this chip at 4.5ghz out the box and more if you like to overclock.

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg and this processor are both fast!

Pros: I was a bit worried about the heat issues other people are getting with different batches. I built my own rig and it runs flawlessly right off the bat. I use the Hyper Evo 212 to co it and it runs 27-29C on idle and 72C max on full load. I tested it with HeavyLoad CPU and frame rate. I can OC it, but i don't need it really as this is really fast at stock speed.

Cons: None. I already know about the stock fan when I ordered.

Other Thoughts: Got it for $310 with promo code. NewEgg delivered for free on the next business day. That is plenty fast as well! Full egg both for the product and the service.

2 out of 5 eggsHOT

Pros: very fast chip. it can handle just about anything you feed it, until it overheats that is.

Cons: to hot! while running prime 95 it will thermal throttle in less than 5 minutes!!! never seen a processor go from 25c to 100c in three minutes... at first i thought the heat sink wasn't seated but after trying three times its still getting to hot.

Other Thoughts: apparently the heat has been an issue for these chips. most likely going to RMA in hopes its not like this with all of them as its a very fast chip

4 out of 5 eggsIts Fast

Pros: Its Fast....obviously. Haven't overclocked it yet because I can't and there also isn't a need. Never seems like its really trying. Got it for $310

Cons: Stock cooler is completely garbage. Gets too hot and its the loudest thing in my case hands down. With stock speeds Folding@home brings it over 100c on the stock cooler. Same with prime95. In less than 3 seconds its over 100c. No idea what it would get up to if I let it run.

Other Thoughts: At idle with the stock speeds and cooler its around 30c. Playing Farcry4 or DayZ maxed out its around 65c-75c. I knew I was going to get a new cooler anyway I just didn't think I NEEDED to get one. It might as well not come with one if its going to run so hot and kill such an expensive processor quickly. -1 egg

5 out of 5 eggsfast

Pros: Fast. Overclocks nicely, even for someone with no previous overclocking experience.

Cons: It's not free.

Other Thoughts: I used this for my new multi-purpose PC for a family with teenagers - gaming, development, running virtual machines. An i5 probably would have done the job, but I wanted to future-proof my system somewhat.

5 out of 5 eggsA Relatively Nice Upgrade

Pros: - Four cores, eight threads, the HyperThreading won't help a gamer much though.
- But I'm a gamer and an editor, so the HyperThreading helps quite a good bit.
- The quite high stock and turbo speed.
- Easily overclockable to 4.5 GHz.
- 120 Gigaflops.
- Takes less power than an AMD processor.

Cons: - Not an insane step-up from a stock clocked 2500, but still a quite significant upgrade.
- Couldn't stabilize at 4.6 GHz without hitting 90 celsius.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a the new Flagship Non-Extreme Intel processor, and it's quite good for what it gives.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 4790k i7

Pros: -Price - $299
-Speed - 4 ghz, over clock to 5 ghz no problem
-4600 integrated graphics will at least get you playing some mid lvl games ( low settings ) if need be. Not a main source for gaming!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I see no reason to buy any other chip on the market unless your doing some heavy duty photo/movie editing, then I can see getting the new intel 6/8 core chips.

This chip will handle anything to throw at it with easy!

5 out of 5 eggsIntel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz

Pros: Great price value. It's rated far better than it's successors that cost over a thousand dollars because of how competent it is for the price, because the successors are not that much better.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Processor

Pros: Easy to install - Really fast - Runs everything I have at warp speed

Cons: The stock cooler is adequate for most things, but it could be better. I didn't deduct an egg for it because like I said, the cooler is adequate and besides that, it isn't the processors fault the cooler isn't better.
