Pros: Why spend the money on a expensive CPU when this will do fine.
Cons: This is a update, the CPU was freezing infrequently when only using the internet or solitar game, it would not freeze when testing with Prime95. What I have done is disable C states and up the vcore voltage to 0.050v so far the freezing has stopped.
Edit: Third update the PC was still freezing infrequently I did a CPU RMA with Intel everything is fine now.
Other Thoughts: I have seen other people with freezing problems with intel 1151 CPU's intel is not the company they use to be.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclock to 4.5GHz with ease, 25% faster than the i5 2500k, I can cool with my old CM hyper 212, Cost is OK I purchased the processor for $219, works well with my GA Z170 HD3 motherboard.
Cons: Intel needs to do something different I can't tell if there is any speed increase from my 2500k. However I'm using a EVGA SSC GTX 970 and that makes my gaming the same.READ FULL REVIEW
