Awesome Processor


Love the processor but im a little upset that i never got a code, not going to take an egg away for that though!

Fast ; You can overclock it

Nothing bad about the processor, but I never received my code for the give away

a bit "cheap"...a bit dissapointing


my old 2500k would never even see 50C with my cooling solution under hours of prime95, so it's pretty lame that Intel cheaped out...but, I guess, I should have researched that instead of assuming solder was's still crazy fast, but also... least a little faster than the 2500k it replaced

Unlike the 2500k, this cpu seems to have been made with significant cost savings. I realized that only after running prime95, on stock speeds, only to see that temp would shoot up from 30C to 60C within seconds. Mind you, this is on a very capable...

Great CPU


It's a CPU, not to much to really review so long as it works.

Fantastic CPU

Great CPU


If you're mainly gaming with some rendering here and there, definitely get this. If you are gaming and doing a lot of rendering, then go for an i7.

With this being a quad-core without hyper-threading, it kicks a**. This thing is a great pair with my GTX 780. My Skyrim has over 200 mods and that game is dependent on a CPU with fast single-threaded performance. With that being said Skyrim runs in...

None so far

Solid Processor


Haven't had a chance to try OC on this yet, but it seems like it should handle it well. I do have a feeling that I'm going to need an aftermarket cooler for this one though.

Under stock clock speeds, it seems very stable

It seems like Intel cheaped out on the stock heat sinks this generation. It doesn't seem anywhere near as well put together as the stock cooler for my SandyBridge i5

better then expected but...


This cpu uses very little power. does everything I ask of it. games very well

Thermals are worse then I expected. I have a phanteks ph14 cooler and it will get up to 52 when benchmarking. but I have heard the Malaysian ones tend to run warmer which is where mine was made

Way too hot using stock cooler!


Pretty fast, good value for money, good per-core performance

I get that stock coolers aren't supposed to be beautiful or whatever, but there's got to be something seriously wrong! My computer is constantly throttled back to 2.5 GHz when I use intensive applications. Forget about the advertised 3.9 GHz boost! I...

Made the Build


I know everyone will agree with me here and say the stock heatsink/fan combo is basic. It runs fine in heat tests so i can't really put this under cons but it is nothing to keep if you plan on running a serious machine for long periods! Currently...

This CPU brought my rig into the current gen. I had no idea what i was missing running on my very old build. I was running an AMD Athlon X3 455 and was getting tired of bottle-necking everything so i finally made the jump to Intel and ill never look...

Intel i5 4690K 3.5GHz


Great processor! Lower TDP than AMD chips and much better performance than my old Phenom 2 at 3.5Ghz. Loving this upgrade so far at stock speeds and it's awesome to know I can overclock later if I need the extra speed

Included heatsink/fan is pretty light and cheap looking. The pre-applied thermal paste was put on in three stripes that does not make complete contact with the heatsink. I scraped it off and applied my Antecedent thermal grease. Temps are around 50C...
