Pros: A quality product from Intel that is supremely easy to overclock providing that it is coupled to a decent cooler because it's a hot product in all respects.
Mine is installed in an Asus Maximus ROG Apex z690 and is easy to set up and adjust using Asus's AIOC algorithm. I also made the switch to Win 11 Pro and this, no doubt, allows for appropriate workload distribution amongst the P(erfomance) and E(fficiency) cores. I have had no issues with any of my programmes (music scores, statistical analyses, games etc)
Cons: I suppose the obvious "Cons" are price and power consumption/heat generation. Despite these attributes it's still an awesome device.
Overall Review: I certainly would recommend this processor, and would buy i t again for another build.
Pros: Nice CPU. All core default boost clock was around 5Ghz full load AVX.
Cons: Unreasonably hot temps in my custom loop.
Overall Review: The CPU is fast. I had a 5900X and this thing crushes it. At a cost of way more power and heat. I have an Obsidian 1000D case maxed with four 480mm radiators, 18 SP fans with two EK D5 pumps. I cool this CPU and a 3080 graphics card only. When pushed, the CPU still hit 92 degrees under full load AFTER tinkering with the voltages (100 degrees without correction). This was at a 5.1 Ghz all core boost, 4 Ghz boost on the e-cores at 1.235 volts. It draws about 270 watts with Cinebench R20. Oh, I also delidded and used the copper IHS from Rockit, and it did not make much difference either.
I see this CPU as a win and loss. I use Handbrake for rendering movies and I hate how much power this draws to shave a few minutes from the 5900X. But gaming has been rock solid and I'm definitely getting more FPS.
Pros: Great performance, easy to install
Cons: Needs at least 360 AIO or dual-towers air cooling to keep its best performance
Doesnt have to overclock or it might cause some problems
Overall Review: My last CPU was a 7th generation one, it took me 2 or 3 hours to render a video in Vegas Pro. Now with this high-performance monster, it can be shortened by 15 to 20 minutes. Its real.
But, if youre a video games player. Its a kind of waste to buy a i9 12900KF just for playing games. A i5 is enough. So think twice before you buy it. Dont waste money on something youll never use.
Pros: very fast. 16 core.
greatest processor for gaming so far!
can play all of the latest gaming titles with maximum fps
better than amd's offering
Cons: Hard to get
more ddr5 memory available instead of 32GB
Overall Review: Very capable processor, probably more than enough gaming power for the foreseeable 3 years. And more than enough for work for 5-7 years or more!
Overall Review: Runs pretty hot 100c but works amazing
Pros: Looks really nice my mum
Cons: -Cant install the thing because cooler didn't come in was supposed to this Friday but now ill just have depression all weekend
(its okay Newegg I bought from nzxt not you you guys delivered my parts fast very nice)
Overall Review: Really nice to look at in the box for now
Pros: Je recommande la 12 génération intel vraiment bcp mieux que la 11e
Overall Review: Je recommande la 12 génération de processeur intel
