Coming from a person who got extremely unlucky with this CPU, I love it

Pros: It is simply amazing. What else is there to say? I made an enthusiast grade server/gaming rig and it handles everything amazingly.

Cons: n/a (not including luck, which I'll get into)

Other Thoughts: I lost the silicon lottery ticket by a huge amount. When Trying to OC, this cpu can barely hit 4.0 GHz at 1.315 V (super super super unlucky). Higher than 4 GHz is more voltage than I'm willing to pump. Though, I can't deny I'm a little upset with my luck, I can't help but acknowledge that this CPU made my dreams come true TT_TT. just buy it

i7 6800k

Pros: I was a little worried about getting this cpu seeing it was the weakest of the bunch but iv been running it for 8 months now and have no complaints. It's fast and powerful and deff a great chip. I have it over clocked @ 4.2 on a corsair 115i and ideal temps hover around 36c and never goes above mid 40's under load. highest iv seen it go was 65 during stress test.

Cons: voltage is a bit high at 1.29 for 4.2 but from what if read on these chips it's common.

Other Thoughts: would deff recommend this chip if it's what you have you're eye on bit with coffee lake out now it's problem a better choice

Lots of Threads

Pros: It's a great processor, especially for the price as of the review date. The 6 cores with hyper threading and high memory limit (128GB) is wonderful for all my work, Programming and SQL, without having to go Xeon. I can have a few processor heavy items running and still be able to do just about anything I want.

Cons: Single Core performance for me was mediocre due to low clock speed.

Other Thoughts: Not that great for Unreal Engine; a i7-7700K would be better for that as it likes higher single core clock speeds I found.

With a good air cooled heat sink and a good stable motherboard, this will OC to a stable 4Ghz without issue and running at an acceptable 58C or less at full load.

Should go without saying, but get a good solid, stable, and reliable power supply if you plan to run this.

Great CPU for Gaming & Multi-media productions

Pros: I do many different PC tasks from high gaming with my Nvidia 1080, to multi-media production (multi-track audio recording/music production, video editing/rendering with Vegas Pro, video compression with the CPU intensive program Handbreak, ect). I have been using this CPU for about a year now. I purchased it in the summer of 2016. When picking out this CPU, I was moving from the outdated AMD FX 8350, and I got a major boost in performance because of that.

I have 32 gigs of ram installed with this CPU and I have it in the a Corsair Graphite 760t case with the Gigabyte GA-X99-Ultra Gaming motherboard. Have not had any issues with this setup. I have been running the Cooler Master Evo 212 aftermarket cooler on it, and when I am using something like Handbrake to render video, the entire processor is used to 100% the entire time it is rendering.

I usually render full HD video from a higher end production camera (1920 x 1080 60fps - 50mbps files), so sometimes Handbrake is pushing this cpu to 100% full load for a good hour or two straight. The highest temp I have ever got with this cpu using the Evo 212 cooler with Handbrake pushing for a solid 2 hours was 49c, and that was on a summer day where the ambient room temp was warmer. As of writing this review, I am currently awaiting my Corsair AIO liquid cooler, so my temps will be even lower after I install that, but they are just fine with the Evo cooler on it. But since I may start overclocking and the liquid cooler is going to be needed, I plan on replacing the cooler. So, a solid case with good airflow, an Evo 212 keeps the temp below 50c, which is way below the red flag temp.

For gaming, while playing higher end titles like GTA V, I am pushing 60fps at 3440 x 1440 resolution on my ultra wide monitor with a Nvideo GTX 1080 8gig card. Never have any issues while playing any game, so this is a solid chip for gaming as well.

Cons: I guess the price would be a con at the moment? Now that Ryzen is out and has much lower price points. However, I bought this CPU well before Ryzen was released, so I don't consider that a factor.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this CPU to anyone who is looking into it, however, with the new core i9 chips and now even Ryzen being out, you may want to look at all other options as well.
