Best CPU ever made? 3/22/2019 3:31:02 PM

Pros: Fastest base clock of Haswell SKUs
Rock solid over the last 4 years running 3-5 VMs for me in my workstation
Overclock-able
I bought a Threadripper but it has so many issues, this CPU is compatible with everything

Cons: Absolutely none

Still pulls its own weight 2/3/2019 9:57:18 PM

Pros: Clocks pretty high
6 cores is standard now
Rather cool when OC'd.
40 pcie lanes, making it almost exactly the same as a 1650 v3, but with overclocking (1650 v3 supports ECC, and much more of it)

Cons: None

Overall Review: I recently purchased a combo from elsewhere and decided to come here to reflect. The board combo included an x99s gaming 7, 5930k, and an h55 cooler, all for $320. First off, the chip that I got is an excellent overclocker. I was able to hit 4.5 using only 1.22 volts on my vcore, placing it ahead of the R5 2600. I upgraded from an i7 3820 and a knockoff x79 motherboard, and the difference is stellar. Paired with the 980, the combo can certainly push out the frames, especially in CPU bound titles, like Far Cry 5 and TF2. There is nothing bad that can be said about the processor. Initial release of x99 proved to be pretty rocky, but coming along almost 5 years later, with subsequent bios updates to the boards, there shouldn't be any problems.

Fast and Reliable 12/27/2018 1:23:33 PM

Pros: Fast ...reliable ...runs cool

Cons: Nothing so far.

Overall Review: I've been running this processor daily for 2 and half years now and have had no issues at all.
It's fast enough for all I throw at it and always runs cool too.
It was expensive but in this case the cost seems well justified.
No regrets.

Finally sold this beast after 4 long years 11/29/2018 8:42:34 AM

Pros: - 6 cores 12 threads
- Tons of OC capability
- Multitasking monster
- Gets you onto the HEDT platform
- multi-core performance still holds up today against the best CPUs

Cons: - x99 platform was very unstable at release. There were bugs to work out
- expensive, but worth every penny for me.

Overall Review: I just upgraded to a 9900k after using this for the past 4 years. Had all cores OCed to 4.5ghz no stability issues, no temp issues, no problems for 4 years straight. I ended up finally selling this cpu and just wanted to come back and highlight how great it was. It got me into the HEDT platform and served me well on video editing as well as gaming. Still holds up as a beast even today. Great product intel, I hope the 9900k serves me just as well.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Good CPU but my unit was an awful luck of the draw 8/18/2018 9:36:51 PM

Pros: Still does plenty good enough in most of todays tasks (August 2018)

Cons: I personally was stuck with a really poor quality sample. I can't hold even a slight overclock no matter what is done. Even at stock frequencies I have a bad core that makes itself pretty apparent when running any form of stress test.

Overall Review: While the silicone lottery is really the only reason I gave this a 3 star review after a couple years of ownership. These Intel-E chips should not have these sorts of quality issues, and all of the cores and chips should be of a much higher quality bin than I ended up with.

I would like to replace this CPU with something newer, but until Intel makes it worth the upgrade, I will make do with the 5930K at a limited stock configuration.
