This is a great cpu.

Pros: I've had this running at 4.3 ghz for the last 3 years and no issues. Cooled by Corsair H150i pro. Was an H110.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale for $320. Now its $600 3 years later. ?
Any one wanna buy a used cpu? ;)
Still humming along at 4.3 ghz 24/7. 04/2019.

Fine and fast!

Pros: As usual worked perfect in my new build from the get go for a couple of months. I've overclocked it to 4.6G with no problems,no crashes, other than secondary fans that have to run but for the most part I run it at 4G.

Cons: No cons

Other Thoughts: UPDATE: I've been using this CPU now for 2.5 years and not so much as a hiccup. Works perfect! I thought they had discontinued the 6700k but looks like it's still for sale. Great CPU............

For gaming purposes, the next big step from here is the 9700k?

Pros: - CPU running strong at 4.6GHz OC'd with 50-60C on average during load, cooled via a REFURBISHED Corsair h105i AIO.
- Survived Prime95 26.6 overnight stress test.
- Paired with EVGA Z170 Classified K, overclocking was simple.
- Paired with EVGA RTX2070 XC Ultra, running just about anything high-max settings at 180-200FPS+.

Cons: - Showing age during premiere renders.
- Beginning to struggle albeit BARELY with pushing high FPS (180+) at max settings in CPU intensive games.
- Hard to justify upgrading (especially if your CPU is a 10 series or higher).

Other Thoughts: A few months ago I decided to really test my limits with this CPU as I was unsure about whether or not I should upgrade. In Canada right now, the $710 tag on an 9900k followed by a lack of EVGA z390 boards on the market... i'm tentative. Furthermore looking into a 9700k on a higher end z370 board or a z390 board, I begin to wonder for light workstation and mainly gaming use... is it really worth it? The overclocks I was able to achieve 4.6GHz @1.35V and i've been running that for a good while. Before that I was running 4.5GHz @ ~1.3V and still enjoying the boost. The benefits i've received in gaming are significant enough to last me for the time being. Marginally higher clocks on the 7700k seem insignificant imo... the 8700k begins to become appealing with an extra two cores and four threads, higher single core boost, and tacking on a 12MB cache to boot. Losing multithreading in the 9700k but gaining a whopping 4.9GHz boost out of the box seems to be an ideal upgrade if you've got money burning in your pocket... and furthermore the 9900k is going to be (of course) the best performance increase... but at a huge cost.

TL;DR Unless you're looking into a heavier workstation load, not looking to overclock or upgrade your cooling... why upgrade?

Simply Amazing

Pros: Superb quality and reliability

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This CPU is amazing, it's easy overclock makes it all worth while. I have had it for 2 years now and in the 1st year let me say this, it ran without a heatsink for almost 8 month before I realized the heatsink had fallen off, it was reaching temps at 125c regularly. It only goes to show its reliability and dependability. Going strong still, definitely recomend.

Very well-rounded CPU

Pros: - Plays games at excellent frame rates when paired with a powerful enough GPU (can do 144 Hz easily)
- Encodes video at a decent speed
- Renders 3D at a decent speed
- Can be overclocked

Cons: - Only four cores and was originally Skylake's high end desktop part -- it quickly shows its age when compared to newer CPUs that have more cores
- No upgrade path that makes sense -- same IPC and core count as 7700K but only slightly worse maximum overclock (your mileage may vary)

Other Thoughts: - Newer CPUs like the Intel Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 7 2700X have more cores and thus may perform better at workstation tasksu

CPU Died after 2 days

Pros: - Was fast, right up until it died. OS installed. Games were played. Drivers were updated. OS patches were applied. Windows 10 was running smooth and everything was fine, right up until it wasn't.

Cons: - Died fast.
- Inexplicable errors at the OS level. Started with page faults, then kernel exceptions, then various other exceptions. Sometimes no exception, just a blank screen and a reboot. Endless rebooting.
- It reached a point where I couldn't even get into the installer USB. Just a cascade failure.
- All signs on failure point to potentially faulty ram or bad disk partitions, but once you eliminate those, there's nothing left but the CPU.

Other Thoughts: - Consider it grave misfortune to have a CPU fail - this nearing my ninth or tenth build, using various brands of components. I've never had a CPU fail on me. Temperatures were fine, everything went together swimmingly. I consider this to be nothing more than extremely bad luck.

OC to 4.8GHz stable on low volts

Pros: This thing has been pretty great for the last couple of years. I've enjoyed it. Cores don't seem to go above 50 or 60c under load, either. It's got a corsair 120mm AIO on it.

Cons: Meh. None.
