An absolute unit of a CPU

Pros: -Handles everything I have asked of it, keep fairly cool at 36C idle and ~55-60C under load anddespite my bad case airflow.
-No problems in the entire 1 1/2 years of ownership.

Cons: -Stock heatsink is obviously not worth it (as can be said for any CPU), strongly recommend throwing a good old CoolerMaster 212 Evo for good measure.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it on here! The prices are really whack, and have actually risen $100 dollars above what I bought it for, and this is not a result of actual demand.

Great gaming CPU

Pros: Depending on the price this is a great CPU to buy for gaming. Not sure why it is retailing for over $400.00 on here, I bought mine for $279.99 a little over 2 years ago. If you can get it in the $200.00 range or less you will not regret it. Knowing the Intel road map you aren't going to get a significant gaming boost until at least 2020 chips and getting this CPU instead of the 6700k saves you money on the RAM and motherboard. Have been heavily gaming on it for over 2 years and still performs perfectly. Great buy for someone who will primarily be gaming on the computer.

Cons: - Hard to find brand new for reasonable price
- Wouldn't recommend for heavy animation, video editing or processor heavy applications. It can hold up without issue with multiple applications/windows open but a lot of business related applications will benefit greatly from a CPU with more cores and threads
- Due to the difficulty of getting a new one for a reasonable price more recent Intel CPU's would get more bang for buck in the present and future (2020-2021 and beyond)

Powerhouse processor!

Pros: Can auto-overclock to 4.0 GHz.
All power saving features can be disable for maximum power output.
More stable than a 6700K and lower TDP(65W)

Cons: Not Optane(butNVMe) Compatible but MAYBE bios update will change that.
Affected Meltdown and Specter(Intel released fix via bios update).

Other Thoughts: It shall be used for Oculus rift and 4K HD video editing.

Works great at everything I have tried. At this point, I am GPU limited again.

Pros: - Running HandBrake with the built in 48x CD/DVD-RW, 250GB SATAIII SSD, 16GB DDR4 2400, and an external DVD drive of the same spec, I was able to rip two DVDs simultaneously in the time my laptop with an i7 4810mq, 16GB DDR3 1600 and another external DVD drive got about 2/3s through two DVDs of the same size/length. The CPU was at 75-80% and barely broke 120*F.
- Used it to mine Monero coins with my weak GTX-660 and the CPU got ~200 H/s -- not bad for a non GPU. Odd thing was it mined faster with only 4 cores selected than all 8 -- temps barely broke 110*F (using an old air cooler from my Core2 Quad 9505 95W CPU). I am assuming the program I was using only 4 so it could use more of the turbo boost speeds?
- Idles at room temp (70-80*F), max I have seen it hit was 125*F.
- Boots from a cold boot (no hybrid shutdown, hibernate, etc.) to login screen in 6 seconds after a clean install of Windows 8.1 Enterprise.
- My work laptop had a Kabylake i7 6XXX series mobile CPU (25W maybe?) and it was about 3500 points slower with the same amount and speed RAM.
- Last desktop CPU was an i5 3470, this thing blows it out of the water.

Cons: None so far other than reminding me my GTX660 is getting a little long in the tooth!

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend it. Of course if you plan to OC or play AAA games at 4k, do lots of editing or CAD the 6700K would be the way to go. But at current prices, the 50% increase in price doesn't seem worth it to me.

Handles everything Ive thrown at it

Pros: ive pushed this thing pretty hard, both in computing and gaming. Running 3 monitors with cpu intesnsive data processing apps on each one and this thing does it no sweat. The 4 cores are great for that.

Gaming wise Ive been able to play PUBG and a few other games on all highest settings, thsi thing handles it no problem.

Even done a bit of light video editing, this thing handles it all like a charm

Cons: Installed and got it up and running straight away with a third party cooler; no cons at all

Other Thoughts: I bought this over a year ago, it could be getting outdated; considering its still retailing for more than I paid for it back then.

Solid Workhorse

Pros: Works just like it should, right out of the box. Ideal for most office applications.
I don't OC my processors, so they tend to be exceptionally reliable.

Cons: Needs a better heat exchanger!

Other Thoughts: Just be sure to match this CPU with the right motherboard and RAM. Too many people don't - and then they have problems!
I will replace the heat exchanger with a better one this coming Spring before this office starts getting warm. I live in the desert, where summertime office air temperatures regularly exceed 80 degrees F and dust is an issue.

Skylake i7

Pros: It's an Intel.

Cons: Junky pancake thin cooler barely enough to keep CPU from throttling. Installed CoolerMaster Vortex air cooler and still got up to 65C. HOT chip. Had to install an AIO liquid cooler.

Other Thoughts: Installed a Corsair H110i and temps improved. More than likely inferior thermal compound under heat spreader, but not delidding because I want to keep my warranty.
