5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: So far so good! Seems to run my build really well and fast! I'm using the stock fan right now and having only played League of Legends the temp hasn't gone above 65 C so no complaints there. Seems to idle around 40-45 C.

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing CPU

Pros: - amazingly fast
- Multi tasking made easy and efficient
- Came with no bent pins

Cons: Like the GTX980, none of these PC parts seem to make me toast

Other Thoughts: If your liking for future proofing your machine than this is the CPU for you. I tend to really just game and this CPU is a bit overkill at the moment but the hyperthreading is beginning to make its way in to gaming and I did not want to have to worry about it when it does

1 out of 5 eggsHORRIBLE

Pros: The CPU is very very fast, when it's not burning to death

Cons: The unit is running burning hot. With a tower cooler and 92mm fan attached. This unit idles at 43, and under prime95 testing shoots to 100 in 20 seconds. Had to power down the machine to avoid damage to cpu

Other Thoughts: I would have never bought an aftermarket cooler had I of known it would NEVER be useful due to the chipset being a notorious overheater. This is just poor quality on Intel's behalf to not be able to keep anything cool enough to actually FUNCTION under load.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST i7-4790K

Pros: Speed, speed, speed. Newer and more future proof than the competitor.

Cons: Price is higher than other alternatives, but worth the extra cash.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with an Asus Z-97-A MB and it screams. Slapped a EVO 212 cooler on it and temps are nice and low. Currently not OC'd, but really don't need it. Very happy. FAST. Long time AMD fan (price mostly), but their inability to update their chips in a timely manner pushed me to make the switch. Happy I did this time around.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Amazing

Pros: +Blazing fast stock 4.0Ghz with 4.4 turbo...I mean come on!

Cons: -That stock cooler is a joke, even with the intention of staying at stock speeds I threw on an after market cooler for peace of mind.

Other Thoughts: For a fun comparison - Media Encoding on Adobe Premiere (2 - Pass (H.x264 @ 1080p 60fps for a 15 minute video)

Core i7 870 @ 2.8 Ghz = 47 minutes
Core i7 4790k @ 4.0 Ghz = 14 minutes

Just crazy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: CPU is leaps and bounds faster (at stock speeds) than my old 3770k *which I couldn't OC*.

I was using a very old H77 chipset board inside a micro-itx case with my 3770k, and because I couldn't overclock it, and the z77 boards were increasingly harder to find and mostly discontinued, I upgraded to this CPU with a newer motherboard. This thing FLIES.

I went from 200-250FPS in CSGO, to 300-400 FPS (all max'd settings 1080p). Stock 4.0 this thing zooms past the 3.8ghz 3770k.

Happy with the upgrade

Cons: Stock cooler is atrocious. I have this CPU in an M-ITX case that has very good airflow, and on stock speeds I saw the CPU hitting 85-90 degrees (celsius).

Other Thoughts: I had to go out to the local retailer and buy an h100i, which dropped the temps to 25-30 idle and 55-60 load (65 on p95).

Get a new cooler with this CPU, you won't regret it.
