Most Favorable Review

Very happy with my first Intel build since Ivy Bridge

Intel Core i5-11600K - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 3.9 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811600K
Intel Core i5-11600K - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 3.9 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811600K

Pros: - 5.0 GHz all-core OC stable for months - Terrific benchmarks: Rivals my Ryzen 5 5600X - Excellent for gaming: Been using with a RTX 2060 SUPER

Cons: - Power hungry

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend the 11600K. Check out the attached screenshots for details on temperatures, power, clocks and benchmarks. I'm using the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280mm AIO to cool it - works really well. Using average 3,600 XMP DDR4 memory (4x8 GB) and a 650W power supply with the ASRock Z590M Phantom Gaming 4 mobo.
