Decent Budget Processor 5/23/2019 11:39:04 AM

Pros: Cheap
Can run games smooth
No bottleneck with other budget cards
Not power hungry
Pretty quick
Runs cool

Cons: Often when running a game is at 100% load (could be normal, if so disregard this comment)

Overall Review: Very good budget processor, I’ve had some bugs with it, but if I wanted a high end processor, I shoulda spent more on the processor (was cheaper when I bought it)

OCs well with the right motherboard. 5/22/2018 7:50:04 PM

Pros: Bought this CPU along with a Z170-E Asus motherboard back in early 2016 to use in my main system. Now it's running in my HTPC.

Downloaded the modified base clock-able BIOS and ran this CPU 24/7 at 4.6Ghz 1.425v up until a couple weeks ago when I jumped on 7700K that I got a good deal on.

I ended up deliding this CPU, otherwise I was limited to 4.4 due to temps.

Cons: Keep in mind if you decide to base clock OC these CPUs, the low multiplier of the 6400 might limit you. I got lucky and my board is good until ~180 BLCK, but lots of people are getting stuck at ~140. Might be smart to go with the i5 6500 instead for the 32x multiplier instead of the 27x.

Also keep in mind AVX2 performance goes down when you run these modded BIOSes and you lose the ability to run the IGP. You need to disable it and run a dedicated card. No games take advantage of the AVX2 instruction set so no big deal for most people there.

Not docking any eggs for those points as this CPU isn't made to be OCed in the first place ... but figure I mention it.
