Very Fast CPU!

Pros: I bought this upgrade my aging i5-2500k (great cpu for its time), and this was a huge improvement of the Sandy Bridge cpu I had for almost 9 years. 5ghz on air no problem for this chip. Get yourself a good heatsink and you'll have no problems pushing this thing.

Cons: None so far.

Excellent bang for the buck!

Pros: Got this sweet little gem when it was on sale. Overclocked it to 5Ghz and haven't had any issues running any games at 1440....

Cons: None, perfect for gaming

Does what it should

Pros: Came fast and in good shape. Upgraded from an 8600 so it's not the biggest jump but it's nice to have OC capability.

Cons: I think I lost the silicon lottery because I can't get it to go above 4.9 GHz.

Great CPU, best i5 yet

Pros: -fast
-reliable

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: Okay so let me clarify why there are negative reviews for this CPU for any future buyer.

The same thing happened when Intel did Haswell refresh, everyone who purchased a 4700k was under the impression that the 4790k was going to give head over heels improvements over the 4700. So they upgrade and get buttmad because it gave them a measly 2fps improvement. But this isn't the CPUs fault, this isn't Intel's fault, it's the consumer's fault for not doing the slight bit of research it takes to find out that these "refresh" gen CPUs are not intended to be "next gen" number crunching masters, but to merely improve on a few things about the previous gen. So the reality is that the 9600k is just like the 8600k, with a few changes.

If you are coming from 8th gen or even 7th, don't bother. You won't get the improvement you are looking for. Stop thinking you need to upgrade every generation and maybe you'll feel like you get your money worth. If you are coming from any other generation, or no PC at all, this processor will be perfect for your gaming needs. It's a solid CPU, it runs cooler than 8th gen, and is a really good all rounder. If you are like me and refuse to get AMD due to bad experiences in the past, but don't want to shell out the money for an i7/i9, this is the CPU for you.

Powerful i5

Pros: Love this CPU. Don't think that this i5 is going to be inferior to an i7. It really depends on the specific stats. This i5 is far better than some of the i7's i've seen and not as good as others. So far it's been great. You cant go wrong with intel.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: yes

Best value of the 9th gen K sku Intel CPUs

Pros: - plenty for most games for most GPUs - my 9600k @4.9Ghz all cores with RTX 2080 ran PUBG at 144fps+ on 1080Pp ultra, AC Odyssey at ~80-90fps ultra. on higher resolution any gap between 9600k and 9700k or 9900k will only shrink.
- beats my old 4770k @4.6ghz on cinebench (~850ish to ~1150ish) at 4.9ghz.
-

Cons: - not the best for things like video editing encoding / transcoding... but for just gaming and daily use, still a great value (within Intel's offering)
- may not be too future proof as more and more games start looking for more cores / threads for optimization
- mine wasn't the best overclocker - 4.9ghz requires 1.34v w/ LLC on "Turbo" or 6 of 8. and heat becomes an issue past that. I could get it to pass Cinebench at 5.0ghz but nothing else.

Other Thoughts: - was running this on Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro board. The Aorus Pro board is a beast for its price - switched out to 9900k on the same board and the 9900k is running 5.0ghz @1.290v no avx offset no issues. just saying this so you know it wasn't the board that was limiting the 9600k's OC.

Great CPU!

Pros: I've yet to have any issues with thermals, the clock speeds are always consistent, and there is a lot of room for boosted performance assuming you have a CPU cooler to cool it adequately.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: I run mine with a liquid cooler (Corsair H60, 120mm radiator)
