  • newegg Fully Unlocked Flexibility and Freedom With its fully unlocked multiplier, the Intel Core i7-2600K processor allows full control over the processor core/turbo and DDR3 ratios as well as power and current limits for the best possible overclocking results. It also allows for processor graphics overclocking for improved 3D performance. Intel’s cutting-edge 32nm micro-architecture with 2nd gen Hi-K+ metal gate process delivers the 2nd generation Intel Core processors with higher performance at lower power, thus better overclocking capability. (Intel P67 Express Chipset required for core and memory overclocking, and Intel H67 Express Chipset required for graphics overclocking.)
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor and graphics cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.
  • newegg Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller Integrated memory controller enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, resulting in up to 21 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Built-in Visuals (with H Chipset) The visual features built into the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family deliver everything you need to enjoy a stunning and seamless visual experience. Intel Quick Sync Video and newly-added Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) make media processing incredibly fast. New built-in Intel HD Graphics delivers discrete 3D graphics performance without the needed cost and power of a discrete graphics card, and features Intel Clear Video Technology than enhances video playback, image quality, and color fidelity for a premium visual experience. What’s more, add another dimension to what you see on your PC with Intel InTRU 3D technology which supports stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4.

Great product at a reasonable price

Pros: I have always used Intel processors from way back before Intel started manufacturing the Pentium processor. None have failed me yet.

Cons: This processor was purchased to replace an i5 dual-core processor for added speed of processing, however, I will be keeping an eye on the heat load and any heat build due to the increased speed of processing. I hope the existing heat exhaust fan can remove the heat efficiently.

Other Thoughts: Waiting to see is the chip and the laptop operates much cooler due to this upgrade.

Worked well with Gateway FX6860 Motherboard, 8GB DDR3 ram, American Megatrends BIOS, NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 Graphics

Pros: Took care of me for many years, No overclocking, air cooled.

Cons: Gagged and finally would't boot windows 10 after incessant usually unsuccessful windows 10 updates. Even took it into a computer repair shop that said they couldn't get it to run windows 10 either. Finally gave up and reformatted and went back to windows 7 which still works well but I may have lost legacy apps (not data files). Bookmarks, email, etc I'm still struggling to reinstall.

Other Thoughts: Has anyone else encountered these problems?

Best chip I ever bought! 5.1ghz on AIR COOLING?!!

Pros: Reliable, Low wattage and never lets me down. Had it for 7+ years now on an aftermarket thermaltake air cooler. Overlocking is a breeze with this cpu.

Cons: Stock cooler sucks. But thats intel's fault. The chip itself is AMAZING!

Other Thoughts: Overclocked to 5.1ghz stable. Temps were near throttle the whole time under load but it maintained 5.1 ghz! ON AIR! The room temp did not thank me though. Was 20 degrees F outside and 90+ in the room using my computer as a heater with the windows open. Should have probably water cooled it. But I have maxed out the safe wattage and voltage for this processor and ran it that way for over 2 years before dropping it to 4.2ghz and then eventually back to stock. Now swapped out the gtx 480 for a gtx 1070 and this chip is still keeping up with all the new games. CPU still doesnt even reach 80% usage gaming and playing videos on the second monitor. SO GOOD!!!!

Strong since 2012

Pros: Fast and stable!

Cons: Old

Other Thoughts: In my rig since 2012. Intel’s best! Never had a need to upgrade and still going strong in 2018. Gaming and photo editing, performance is bar none. Has been overclocked at 4.74Ghz since the start on water cooling.

I didn't know how lucky I was

Pros: Easy to overclock. Even on stock heat sink I'm getting 3.8 GHz base. I bought this in 2011 and it's still chugging along.

Cons: It's a little power heavy compared to newer CPUs and there is no reason to buy one at full price these days. Plus the LGA 1155 is hard to find for newer mobos.

Other Thoughts: If you were lucky enough to buy this back in the day you probably are still using it. I'd try and find it for less than $250 if I wanted to get another one.

Still rockin

Pros: Bought it in 2011 as my very first computer and I'm soo happy I did. I think I won the silicone lottery with this buy, It still runs awesome in games like GTAV, BF1 and all my other games with 60fps high/ultra with my r9 280x. I haven't done more than a months worth of overclocking and it's still considered a great CPU in all the Vive and Oculus benchmarks.

Cons: had to switch to a water cooler late down the road, working with an h60i AIO. The temps though are still great and never get over 65C in games. I don't do any mining or rendering, so I can't vouch for that performance.

Other Thoughts: Newer options are available and a lot cheaper than this current price but if you saw one on E.b.ay for less than 200 than the guy selling it doesn't even know he has a gem in his pocket.

Performed as expected

Pros: -remained a stable system under stock cooler with no overclocking and OCZ freeze thermal compound for about 5 years

Cons: -started overheating in 6th year of use and finally became unable to boot into win 7 ultimate 64bit

Other Thoughts: -rarely turned the computer off and was used constantly for its entire life.
-average time of use per day was over 8 hours sometimes simultaneously running games such as: ARMA2, Minecraft, StarMade, Heroes and Generals; on one monitor, and youtube videos @720p + in the other
-later in its life it started overheating during simultaneous gaming/youtube use with temps under the stock cooler running up to 81c

I'd say it had a good run, and will be missed. 6/18/2011-10/15/2017 RIP
