Great all around CPU


This i5 is equal to a i7-3770 in most operations. That is impressive.

No need to O/C this CPU as it breezes thru all modern games with ease. Any mid range cooler will keep it below 60 C while at 100%. If you decide to OC then the multiplier is unlocked, so a decent MB will have no problem getting to 4.4/4.5 on Air with...

Newegg shipped it fast as always!

Fast and smooth! Paired with cm 212 evo and temps stay low

None at all

Great processor


purchased this and new mobo week before Skylake was going to be released. Was worried skylake would blow it out of the water! but it doesn't so im happy.

Intel.. and it works? What is there more to say. Works great

Runs a little hotter than my previous i5-2500k, with aftermarket liquid cooler runs about 5-8C higher under full load. Same idle temps

Intel BX80646I54690K


Fast processor

Ordered this back in January, along with GA-Z97X-Gaming 7. Have been unstable ever since I built this rig. Debug code 36- CPU PEI initialization. With random reboots for months of troubleshooting and no support from Intel

I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong here. I debated on the i7 but just don't believe the marginal difference for my main activity (gaming) to be worth it - personal opinion of course.

Did a rebuild and switched from the AMD platform after being a long-time AMD fanboy. I am coming from an 1100t that I had running at 4.0 and the performance gains just in a session of WoW in a crowded city are incredible to me. I haven't had a ton of...

None that I can think of

Great CPU


This is my second i5-4690K and it works great. Also, great for OCing

could always be cheaper in price just not in quality. :)

Works. OverClocked great

Wish I could have had an option to save a few bucks and buy without the stock cooler, since I didn't need it

Awesome Little Devil


I used the pea size thermal paste in center fyi.

Just what you would expect as all the forums say. It is a plug and play then sort out all your options depending on chipset

I didn't like how much of a gimmick the Intel and AMD market seem to be. It leads me to think that if Intel has competition then the chip would cost half of the current price, $230.00

Great cpu


Glad I bought it.

First off Newegg did great with their shipping. I took free shipping and it arrived in one day. I upgraded from a AMD FX 6300. The first thing I noticed was how smooth games now run. No more stuttering. Everything else is nice and snappy. I haven't...

It's a bit pricey
