Pros: - great gaming performance- in stock- pci-e 4.0 support- big upgrade from my 8600k
Cons: - pricey- runs a bit warmer than my 8600k when overclocked
Overall Review: Once I got my overclock dialed in this thing is running great. Paired with auros z590 board. Runs every game I throw at it with ease.
Overall Review: Have not had any issues with this cpu. Paired it with an asus z590 plus mbd, rtx 3060 ti, 32gb ddr4 3600 c16, 1tb ssd and a 2tb hdd with 16g optane module.
Pros: Very Fast
Overall Review: My original PC specs were. i5 6600k, Asus 170 Prime motherboard, Asus ROG Strix 1080 GPU, and 32 GB of 2400 RAM. I bought the Asus 590 Prime motherboard and this i7 11700k CPU. The i5 must have been bottlenecking my 1080, because once I started using this CPU my FPS skyrocketed. I use a Reverb G2 and with the old setup I had to bring the resolution down to 52%. With the new CPU I can use it at 80%. Does not sound like a lot, but trust me it is a huge difference in clarity in a VR headset.
Pros: - support for pcie 4.0 standard that the NVIDIA 30 series video cards use
- works with socket 115X series air coolers
- windows 11 compatible
Cons: - none at this time
Overall Review: - its a great processor to handle gaming and streaming / gameplay recording.
Pros: - great for the money
Cons: - runs hot
- higher power consumption
Overall Review: Great cpu for the money! Overclocks easily, though heat is a major issue. My Antec Kühler H2O 920 was great on previous cpu, though on XMP overclocks can't keep up with this one. Have to run stock until I can upgrade the cooler and/or thermal paste (using arctic silver 5).
Overall Review: Its perfect, I love it and and it works really well with my build!
Pros: Perfect CPU for upgrading to 11th Gen
Overall Review: Great performance w.r.t price
Pros: Great price, phenomenal CPU!
Overall Review: Excellent everything.
