A+ CPU 1/2/2020 2:48:30 AM

Cons: none

Overall Review: A+ CPU

Cost to performance not good 12/9/2019 5:27:49 AM

Pros: Excellent for gaming and performance

Cons: Not worth the price! My Ryzen 5 2400g overclocked matches the i7 - 6700k for 200.00 less. Why would you buy another product for that much more for the same performance?

Overall Review: Intel seems to want to price jab the consumer for a product that is not worth the price they are asking for it! They need to adjust their pricing competitively to compete with AMD.

4.0GHz Quad-Core "K" CPU 5/18/2019 9:59:25 AM

Pros: An Intel i7 "K" CPU. 4.0GHz stock clock that can and will be overclocked.

Cons: Can't get beyond a stable 4.7. Runs up to mid 80s at stable 4.7.

Overall Review: Only spend the money on an "K" CPU if you plain to overclock. With a "Maximus VIII Hero" board and "Water 3.0 360" I'm able to get a stable 4.7 overclock. But temps in the mid 80s are to high. I've set the overclock to 4.6 and the temps are in the upper 70s. A 4.6 overclock is not bad, but not great. I've read reviews of reported 4.8 overclocks on air. If that's true, they did win the CPU lotto.

Update: I've been running mine at 4.6 o.c. on a Maximus VIII for years. Was able to achieve a 24hr 4.7 o.c. At 4.6 o.c. the temps are in the 50-60s under load. The i7 6700K is just as good as any 9th generation i7 quad core. GPU-Z confirms this. The i7 6700k will be relevant for years to come.
I build to last. I build quality first because I'm on a budget and want builds to last. This is my 3rd DIY gaming pc. My first DIY was an Athlon 64 w/ 9700 Pro. Next was a i7 920 (this cpu has a lot of o.c. head room) w/ a 4890 and later a 7970. The i7 6700k with the 7970 and later a 580.
