upgrading i5 3.5ghz to i7 4ghz is great! 9/3/2020 6:52:44 PM

Pros: fast and handles multitasking excellently.

Cons: its a bit louder than the i5. makes sense, it runs hotter and needs more fanning.
for a 6 year old cpu it's a bit pricey.

Overall Review: first time using i7 and i'm impressed. i certainly will use i7's in the future. it gives a nice speed boost across the board especially when multitasking.

Still Viable in 2020 6/18/2020 6:56:49 AM

Pros: - This CPU is an excellent overclocker.
- Added benefit of hyperthreading over 4690K

Cons: Not a con, really, but Core 1 (out of 0,1,2,3) runs about 4-7c higher than the other three. I did some research and apparently it's not uncommon for one core to run hotter by up to 10c.

Overall Review: I bought this used 4790K to replace my original 4690K that was starting to have problems. I built this system in 2015.

I delidded the CPU and replaced the IHS with a copper IHS from RockItCool. I used Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut between the die and IHS and Arctic MX-4 between the IHS and cooler. I'm still using the Corsair H110i GTX from the original system build. I am currently running the system at 4.8 GHz on 1.237V and have average temperatures of 58-60c on full load and ~45c on typical gaming loads.

Just buy it... 6/5/2020 3:11:02 PM

Pros: This is the best procesor for an LGA 1150 socket. Do yourself a favor and buy one if you're still running a slightly dated motherboard. I just went through an upgrade and couldn't see upgrading my motherboard as it has been perfect. I have an Asus ROG Maximus in LGA 1150. I maxed the RAM, bought this processor (which is ridiculous for the price), and threw in an RTX 2080 Super (the MSI Super Sea Hawk). This thing punishes games.

Seriously, if you have an LGA 1150 - Just buy it, you can thank me later.

Cons: absolutely none

Overall Review: This is one of the best gaming processors you can buy in my opinion. All you have to do is benchmark to see for yourself. There is no reason to get inot the dual cor/ quad core/ hex core etc... etc.. conversation. A quad core for today's games is plenty. You are not going to see bottle-necking from this processor. It doesn't matter if it's a slightly dated socket. This processor was released two years ago. They made this processor somewhere close to 3-4 years after my motherboard came out. Trust me, save the money, buy this processor and upgrade your video card and memory if needed. This is more than enough to rip through any game on the market.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz 5/11/2020 6:03:55 AM

Pros: I guys, bought this processor 5 years ago. I'm going to spare you all the technical mumble jumble and keep the basic, it works amazingly SUPER great. Didn't pay what their asking now a days but man this was the Cadillac back then and is still up there with the Big Dogs, head to head with the Skylake Generation. Goes to tell that younger, newer, doesn't always mean 100% better. When I bought this processor the Skylake generation was about to come out and there was already some projection specs out in the public and comparing on a technical/quality/price base, this machine will run shoulder to shoulder with any same level Skylake processor. Absolutely no problems here I run big games sometimes and I hardly can notice my computer working it is just great for any application you wish to throw at it, this a real BULLDOZER. If I had to do it again I wouldn't hesitate one second, probably the best decision I made in buildings compters *** Five thumbs UP I7-4790K***

Cons: None I've seen in 5 years...

Overall Review: Unfortunately I had to let go on this CPU has my MOBO died on me and I've decided to move up and update the MOBO, CPU and RAM to DDR4. To bad this CPU never let me down on anything and always ripped through anything I trowed at it!

This cpu is the best 4/30/2020 3:43:02 PM

Overall Review: Bought this in 2014 and still using it. Play top tier games on medium settings at 60fps with a geforce 790!!! Gonna upgrade my gpu and then it will fly. Overclocked with msi genie, never gets over 45 degrees even under load. Wouldn't buy this now there are so many options out there now, but like with houses, go big or go home. This thing is almost 7 years old and still is very adequate for almost anything.

4 On The Floor 4/13/2020 8:02:22 PM

Pros: This is a true Work-Horse and performs like the Bad-Lad it is. Can be overclocked with Great Speeds, but I have only done Modest clocking using the ASUS Tuning Wizard.
One of the Better CPU's from Intel in some time.

Cons: None to really speak of just the Intel Box Fan is not that good, but for Zero 'Over-Clock' it is just fine.

Overall Review: Very Pleased and will state it was worth the price.
